Here is just a sample of what our past clients felt about our programs.
They had a great time on our Adventure Quest. One group commented that it was excellent and they learned a lot about the other members in their team. The co-ordination was extremely easy, very accommodating with time and date. Nicole was excellent, very friendly and explained in detail what they needed to do. Thank you, everyone had a great time and it not only made the teams work together it also provided them a bit of stress relief and an enjoyable morning outside of work.
I think everyone had a good time, it certainly brought the competitive side out in people and I saw the individuals that showed patience and that were accommodating to each other. It was very educational to watch the second group from an outside perspective. Fortescue will certainly look you guys up again next year for another team building exercise.
Thanks again and I love the video collage!
Thank you to Louisa and Jason for making our Christmas Party activity such a fun one We all had a great time! We had so much fun! The tasks were fun and engaging. There was also a good variety. It was great as we definitely needed his help at the start. He picked up immediately when I called him and gave us helpful tips and instructions. Thank you for making our Christmas Party activity a really fun one. I’ve received such positive feedback from staff about it. I will definitely recommend Total Team Building to others.
We all thoroughly enjoyed our Adventure Quest, it had a good mix of fun and brain work. It was very user-friendly. Everything ran very smoothly, and communication was very clear and understandable. Darren was friendly, confident and clear and gave us all the information and help we needed.
We had great immediate feedback from the team. They said the Adventure Quest was fun and a great way to get to know their team mates on a different level. Everyone definitely had a lot of laughs and there was a fantastic vibe in the room once the game was completed. Teams seemed to find the app easy to use and the game very easy to follow. Given the short time frame, Katie and Darren were great at suggesting and adapting an activity to suit our needs. Communication with Katie was easy and she was very supportive. Since we used TTB services last year, we knew we could rely on them to deliver a fun and successful event. Darren always has great energy and a friendly approach. He was clear on his instructions so teams could get on with tasks quickly and he also did a great wrap up at the end. This meant that night finished on a high and our team was in a happy and playful mood. I would recommend Katie and Darren in a heartbeat. Congratulations on providing excellent and professional service with fantastic outcomes for your clients. What more could we ask for?
Everyone who participated in the Adventure Quest loved the entire event, they loved the challenges and the variety of them.
I thought the coordination was superb, I was kept fully informed on what was happening with the process before the event day which allowed me to be reassured that everything was going well.
Darren was great!! I loved the messaged that he was able to send through to the team’s which kept us engaged and encouraged us to keep making the most of each activity, having updates on how close the points were was also amazing.
Jason and the Total Team Building team did an amazing job in helping us pull off a fun activity for our National Conference in Hamilton Island! We did the Adventure Quest on buggy’s and the feedback from the team was fantastic! Well done Total Team Building, you’ll be first on our list to contact for next year!
Our Rat Race (now know as the Adventure Quest) was a great afternoon had by all. Drinks at the Belgian Beer Café at the end of the event, all people were talking about how we should have done this and we should have done that Lol, already planning the next event in their heads. Thank god the weather was also on our side. Thank you Rachel, Luke and Total Team Building for a great afternoon. Rachel and Luke were just fantastic at every spot we met up with them. Just a huge thank you to the team for a great day and keep on doing what you are doing.
The Adventure Quest activity was fun and very engaging! We loved the variety of challenges and appreciated having some tailored “scientific” questions. I found Total Team Building to be really enthusiastic, helpful and patient particularly regarding our drastic number changes leading up to the event. Darren made himself available for any questions leading up to the day and was very reassuring that he could handle any issues. The activity was well run and Darren was really enthusiastic and friendly. We had a great time and would definitely run one of these events again!
Loads of fun, no stress very practical and achievable challenges. Overall a great easy experience. Will be using the service again in the future.
We all had such a fun time on our Adventure Quest. The tasks were a lot more challenging and hence more fun to try to accomplish.
The co-ordination was great. Email responses were quick and I spoke on the phone a couple of times with Louisa.
She was very patient with us, as we were running late. I also liked that she got enthusiastic with us with the messages and at the end.
Thank you for an amazing day.
The Adventure Quest was one of the best networking opportunities within a work environment! It was great fun getting to know the new graduates who’ve joined us and catching up with the older ones.
It fast-tracked the process of connecting.
Very good. There were a few embarrassing moments but I made new friends.
This was a fun activity to finish off the Friday afternoon. It was especially funny watching all the recordings and pictures taken throughout the challenge.
Excellent coordination by Darren. Really appreciated incorporating our challenge questions and working with me for smooth and seamless delivery. Hi facilitation was excellent. I was amazed how Darren had his finger on the pulse with timing, progress to goals and then sending me the link at the end very quickly. Thanks very much a for a well-organised event and the option for remote organising to keep down the costs.
We all had a fantastic time at our Adventure Quest event! It was fun, interactive and pushed us out of our comfort zone at times which was great. We also loved the use of the app which was incredibly functional and easy to navigate!
The event was coordinated really well, we were incredibly happy with the service. It was a smooth and stress-free process from the get go!
The remote facilitation was great. We loved how quickly our submissions were scored/marked which allowed us to recap and determine the “winning” team while having lunch after the event.
Unfortunately I was unable to attend the Adventure Quest on the day, but all reports that came back were very positive. Lots of the activities required participants to get well out of their comfort zone which can be scary but really rewarding, now we’ve discovered many hidden talents among our staff that we wouldn’t have before! This was also a great opportunity for us to get staff mingling with people in departments they wouldn’t normally spend much time with, a great bonding experience!
The co-ordination of the program was flawless, communication was great every step of the way and on the day instructions were easy to follow and well communicated.
Just another huge thank you to Louisa and the Total Team gang, you were willing to work with us to fit into our very limited budget which as an NFP is really encouraging and meant that we were able to put on a great day for our staff who work so hard. A superb level of professionalism and communication demonstrated from start to finish, just a great customer service experience!
Our Adventure Quest – We loved it! This was the second year in a row we’ve booked one of your programs and I had a staff member come and tell me that other than his wedding, this was the best day of his life!!
Extremely professional and well organised! Support was on hand the whole day and only a phone call away while we were on the road. All our “special requests” were catered to and helped make the day such a success.
Thank you for helping us build a cohesive team here at school.
The whole Adventure Quest program was wonderful and the communication was excellent in terms of getting everything setup and ready to go for the day. The co-ordination was wonderful. I didn’t have to think about a single thing as it was all taken care of for me! Basically the only task I had to do was send through the trivia questions and even that was made very easy for me. The app is great and the fact that I could get the images and videos taken from the app almost immediately was amazing! Dean was awesome and accommodated us so well on the day. His communication and grouping together of the staff in their teams was excellent given that there were 100 people all with hangovers! The whole experience was 10/10 thankyou! The buzz in the room following the activity was exactly the outcome that we were looking to achieve.
Tuart Forest recently engaged Total Team Building to provide advice and deliver a program to meet wellbeing and team building objectives within our organisation. The advice provided was based on hearing our needs and adjusting to meet those needs accordingly. The communication and expertise around this process was exemplary and they essentially managed the structure from that point forward. The Adventure Quest activity was custom made to suit our people/ goals, superbly delivered with all material and resources provided and Darren’s coordination/ delivery spot on for our adult audience. The compilation of photos and videos have become a resource in themselves and are still a source of great amusement for our staff who have not stopped talking about the day. I thoroughly recommend TTB to any organisation that values time together with staff, bonding opportunities and a healthy infusion of mobile technology to cap it off. Fantastic!
Everyone loved our “healthy” Rat Race (now known as our Adventure Quest). It fitted in well with our wellness & health programs. The co-ordination and facilitation was perfect. We had some awesome feedback: “Loved the yoga session”, “Jason knows his stuff”. Thank you.
We all enjoyed the Adventure Quest! It was great to see people get out of their comfort zone and get creative with the assignments. We’re still laughing at the pictures. The co-ordination was good, it was great not to have to worry about the organisation of the activity and being able to fully rely on Nicole/Total Team Building. We just had to give a few basic details and everything was taken care of. Nicole was great! We have quite a versatile group of people but she was great at addressing everyone when explaining the Quest and briefing all the teams separately. She made the activity even more easy and fun and was in touch throughout the activity. She’s definitely a great fit for events like this. We might be in touch again for future events or even our Christmas party in December – knowing now that the organisation is truly taken care of for us, it will be an easy decision to pick one of the other events for future!
I’d like to share my experience working with Katie and Darren from Total Team Building. Together, we’ve run three programes for three very different teams. One of these days comprised a full day event beginning with a bridge building exercise and finishing off with the Adventure Quest. The participants were SCADA engineers who were brought together from other sections to create one team. This was the first time most of them had worked on a single project. Total team building created a bespoke program for the team to encourage them to work together better.
The first event, the bridge building challenge, had the engineers split into 8 teams making a bridge – the caveat was that everyone had to complete the task for everyone to be successful – shared success. The second event was the Adventure Quest, a modern 21st century take on a treasure hunt. Each team followed a route around Kings Park. During the event, the facilitator inserted random clues that were specific to individuals or teams such as cryptic clues, finding nicknames, random SCADA facts and so on – it was very interactive and as communication engineers, they loved it. A huge advantage was that the teams were in constant communication with us and the other teams which generated friendly competition and a sense of ‘One team”
For me as the organiser, having a digital event with instant messaging meant that I was able to better understand the personalities within the teams and come up with ongoing strategies to support them to achieve their business deliverables. For the teams, it was a fun walk in the park where groups worked together solving clues whilst getting to know each other. For a fun outdoor event with a modern twist, I’d recommend Total Team building’s Adventure Quest.
The team commented saying they had lots of fun, it was very engaging. We loved watching the footage back.
Really great set up and app very easy to use.
Excellent, very professional and explained the detail well.
Awesome day had by everyone and definitely recommend as an activity to others!
Our team thoroughly enjoyed the day and were totally exhausted by the end of our Adventure Quest. The activities pushed many out of their comfort zones but the team camaraderie was great so team members felt ok to act a little bit silly. There was a good mix of tasks at each stop, with some being quite challenging which was good for problem solving and working together to find a solution.
Overall the day was enjoyed by all with many many laughs amongst a bit of competitiveness to win. The whole process to organize the event was easy and communication was great.
Nicole was very personable and communicated well. She was on time, explained the day clearly and kept in communication throughout the day and delivered the results well. Thank you for delivering a great event to meet our expectations of a fun, enjoy yet challenging day out for our leaders.
Everybody loved the Adventure Quest. They found out new things about Perth and engaged in a variety of new challenges and activities. It certainly brought out the ‘creative’ side of some of our team. It also really promoted team work allowing each team to draw on the strength of individual members – some are better at reading maps – others are better at asking a passer by to video the craziness. We were kept informed all the way through – from booking to the actual event. Well done. It was easy to have a program made available for the team that didn’t take much of my time at all. Nicole was friendly and informative. She asked appropriate questions prior to putting people into teams and she was really encouraging. We enjoyed the day and I think everyone appreciated the encouraging messages received from Nicole along the way.
The feedback I received from all was that the Adventure Quest was well organized and came with lots of difference elements which catered for everyone in their teams. The co-ordination was perfect! As usual no hiccups along the way. We have had Nicole twice now and she fits it well with out team and makes it an easy fun process. We will continue to use you for all our Team Building activities. You are easy to deal with, well organized and very cost effective for the outcome you receive.
The teams really enjoyed the activities in the program – there was a great balance of being active, using the brain and being creative.
The co-ordination was great. Plenty of communication prior to the event to ensure the day went smoothly.
I was nervous about the remote facilitation prior to the event, but it turned out to work exceptionally well. The interaction Darren had with teams on the day / during the event was fabulous.
Thank you Katie and Darren for organizing a great team building event. Everyone had a blast!
Darren & Katie provided a first class effort organising and running Brett’s Scavenger Hunt Car Rally (now known as our Adventure Quest Car Rally)!!!!
The event ran very smoothly with a lot of thought and planning to make sure everyone had a fantastic time.
If you are looking for something a little different to a standard bucks, I can highly recommend getting in touch with Total Team Building.
Since the event numerous people who attended have commented that it was one of the best bucks parties they had been too!
Thanks very much guys
The team thought the Adventure Quest was great fun and a great way to get to know colleagues they didn’t know well before. Everyone was on a complete high when they got to the after party and loved that they could see the pictures and watch the videos so soon after the event finished. The Coordination was seamless. Jason was great! People who participated said he was fun and liked the way he ran the event. Many thanks to Jason for a great day!
They loved the Adventure Quest! It was an excellent way to spend the afternoon and they all thought the challenges were fun and well suited. I’m never going to hear the end of those medals from the winners – great touch though. The team at Total Team Building did a great job of coordinating our event despite my hold up’s. Thanks for being so patient Katie. Darren was great, very personable and friendly, and explained the event really well to the team before we started.
Thank you to you both for all of your assistance. The whole team of 10 had a great afternoon running around the city completing challenges and I’m sure we provided a lot of entertainment to a lot of people in the city who saw us, while we were at it.
The team was very excited by the idea of the Adventure Quest felt it was well planned and enjoyed most of the activities. They were asking to do something similar in the future and were coming up with ideas about working with TTB in a broader context in our sites. Darren was great, he supported the concept to be developed into the day and was considerate of the breadth of physical abilities in the group. Katie was lovely and both were supportive and available throughout the planning and delivery of the event. I really enjoyed your flexibility and felt that at any stage throughout the planning and day if I needed anything I would have been able to ask. Thank you for a great day, I will definitely be in touch again for future events.
The Adventure Quest program was well organized and a lot of fun, it pushed people out of their comfort zone and was a great end to a full week of meetings. The coordination was done at short notice, via email and was well organized. Nicole’s facilitation was great, she was clear in her instructions and made the afternoon a lot of fun.
The Adventure Quest was engaging and the students seemed to enjoy the challenges at each location. Louisa and Jason were fantastic to deal with. Extremely responsive and helpful. They instilled confidence that the day would run smoothly and be enjoyed by the students. Teresa was a good facilitator. Her instructions were clear and she provided tech support to a few groups. As our initial numbers were low, she was able to speak to students in the vicinity and invited them to participate in the activity. Thank you for creating an engaging activity for the new students at ACU Brisbane. The students who participated looked like they enjoyed themselves and were able to make some new friends.
Our Adventure Quest was lots of fun and well received across the teams, great to see something that worked for different age groups and abilities. The facilitator was very early so appreciate his patience on the day. I was happy with what we booked and it met expectations on the day. Thanks! It’s great to get a link to all the pics at the end so we can enjoy. Equally great that people don’t know about this at the start so they let loose!
Our support staff had great fun doing the Adventure Quest challenge, despite some misgivings initially from some. It was really good building rapport with other staff across our site in a fun and interactive way. The whole event was made very simple and easy to participate in thanks to TTBs coordination. Darren worked well with the teams, answering their questions and provided me with updates as it progressed. Teachers were sorry they missed out on a fun event as they were doing other PD. Would like to use you again for another event in the future. We thoroughly enjoyed the day.
We all had a fantastic time, were pushed out of our comfort zones and established better relationships with each other – it was also a lot of fun! It was really easy – everything was done in the background with minimal input from us as required. It was clear, concise and entertaining. Well done Total Team Building – I’d recommend you, and definitely look to work with you in the future!
The questions were great – some of them frazzled our brains, made us laugh and kept us guessing! The activities were fun and some more challenging than we expected!
The coordination of our Adventure Quest was seamless actually, from organizing everyone prior to the event, to the actual day. The team made the day easy from our point of view.
Deryn was instructive before we set off so we knew what to do. He was fun when we returned and I thought he was very fair in his scoring.
It was a great option for a low key, pseudo competitive team building activity and the Location was great too – Cockatoo Island was a great backdrop to the event.
We found the process from beginning to end very easy and hassle free! Everyone seemed to have a great time during our Adventure Quest and are all looking forward to seeing the videos and photos from their challenges. The program co-ordination was very professional and accommodating. Even with the short notice we gave, TTB were still able to organize a great event which ran 100% smoothly from off-site. It worked fantastic and Katie was able to be contacted the whole way through if we need to reach out. We would just like to say a big thank you to the team for organizing such a great event with such short notice. You made the whole experience very enjoyable!
We really enjoyed getting to know one another better, in an informal setting. The challenges in our Adventure Quest were varied and catered for a range of strengths within the group. So many laughs. Our event was well organised and TTB helped us along the way with frequent contact and advice. Emailing in the lead up to the event was a big stress relief for me – to know that it was going ahead helped allay my fears. Darren and Leigh did a great job of keeping everyone on track. They even administered first aid to one of our injured staff members and involved her when she was unable to participate further. It was a great day, well organized and friendly facilitators We would definitely recommend your company to others and hopefully we will be able to use your services in future years. Thank you!
The Adventure Quest program was the best we have had, even the person that couldn’t walk due to ankle surgery was involved. The feedback over facebook has been very positive. We will definitely use you guys again. It was fantastic. I kept it from the team, to build up the excitement. Katie and Darren were awesome. We had a great time, the team will be talking about it for a long time.
Our Adventure Quest was great! The challenges were fun and interesting and catered to all ages/capabilities.
It was very well organised and co-ordinated. The app is super easy to use and information providing prior to the event was useful.
Katie was punctual! As soon as we had finished, we received a message and results.
Thank you and we will use Total Team Building in the future.
We had an absolute ball competing in the Rat Race (now known as our Adventure Quest), it brought out the best in people and showed that together we can all work as a team. Darren and Katie were awesome, they had everything well organized and were a great support, they were very prompt and we would certainly use them again and recommend them for any Team Development events in the future. We loved every minute of our day and will look forward to planning the next event
The team loved the adventure quest. It got them out of the room and cooperating as a team. The co-ordination was great for the event. Nicole was fabulous, everyone listened when she spoke. It was great day. Thank you so much to the team, the event was amazing and I would highly recommend to others.
All of our participants commented on how much they enjoyed the “remotely managed” adventure quest – ALL OF THEM! It was tailored specifically to their needs and physical/psychological requirements; not too easy, not too hard, enjoyable and informative. The process from start to finish was smooth. From original enquiry handled by Katie through to program design and follow up with Darren and on the day logistics by Nicole – the whole team was friendly and professional in ensuring our quest was a success! Thank you. At the conclusion of the quest, results were sent through promptly. Thank you for providing great, friendly service and a great experience all-round!
Our Rat Race (now known as our Adventure Quest) was great. Total Team Building was the best company that we have used so far for our team building, had lots of great feedback, and I think everyone enjoyed it! The coordination was great and the team was excellent, really enjoyable. A big thank you to Darren and Nicki for their help on the day. We look forward to using your services again next year!
Our team gave us loads of positive feedback about our Adventure Quest and there was plenty of sharing of laughs and funny stories from the day.
The event was smoothly coordinated and the process was simple which suits us. Darren was friendly and professional as a facilitator.
We thoroughly enjoyed a really fun day in the sun with our valued team in one of the best locations in Australia.
Our Rat Race (now known as our Adventure Quest) was lots of fun, a great afternoon. The program was very well organised. Thank you for a great afternoon everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves.
I thought the Adventure Quest program was fantastic and I have had very positive feedback. It was very well organized and there were no issues at all. Everything went very smoothly. Nicole’s facilitation was excellent and again no issues at all and very helpful and approachable. The whole event was awesome and I would love to do it again.
We have received good feedback from team members saying they enjoyed the Adventure Quest. Majority agreed it was a fun team building activity. The co-ordination was good and Darren was professional and thorough.
We found your service to be good, from the initial contact to delivery of program. Well done. Had a great day!!!
The program was physically challenging, hard work but great fun, brought the team together & created good camaraderie – Well Done!
Thanks Jason for a great team building activity. I enjoyed being able to view my VCAL Senior students work in an environment outside of the classroom. I observed skills, strengths and unfortunately weaknesses in my students that I may not have had the opportunity to view otherwise. It has provided me with a greater appreciation of their capacity to work together to complete our classroom and community projects. The students certainly rose to the challenge. You and your team were well organised and effectively managed the running of the program in a school setting.
