Teams will need to successfully complete a series of team challenges that will require them to communicate and work together in order to release their bike and bike tools. Once all activities are completed the bike building begins with the goal of building the best bike.
When all bikes have been built, each bike is checked and scored based on safety, quality and time. The team with the best score wins and will be presented with the winning medallions.
Then the magic happens! What teams don’t know is that the bikes they have just built will be donated to some deserving children from a local charity. Everyone will be a winner when they see the smiles on the kids faces as they present them with their brand new bike.
**Please Note: We will endeavour to have children present for the handover, however if that isn’t possible we will at least try and arrange for a representative from the charity to accept the bikes on their behalf.
Outcomes: Corporate Social Responsibility, Time Management, Communication, Teamwork

Over 800 bikes have been built and donated to some well deserving kids through our Charity Bike Build CSR program.
Here is just a sample of what our past clients felt about the charity bike build.
The Charity Bike Build was fantastic! The challenges the teams did were great & entertaining…but the main event was awesome! When the bikes were built and our franchisees realized these were for little kids who didn’t get a lot, the mood in the room changed. The facilitation was brilliant! Even with 1 weeks’ notice the event was run perfectly! Chad was awesome on the day – arrived early, responded great with our team, took charge & delivered a great lot of challenges! Well done! We were, still are, extremely happy that we chose Total Team Building and the activity that we did. Hats off to Chad, for facilitating so well!
Loved it. Lots of positive feedback and comments that the presentation of the bikes was a real tear jerker moment. The co-ordination was excellent! I was kept well informed before the event and Darren is a great facilitator. Overall it was a very positive experience. I hope we can use your services again someday.
Everyone really enjoyed themselves during our Charity Bike Build. Good challenges, allowed good participation within each small team, lots of creative thinking for the tasks such as pasta towers, and puzzle solving. The facilitation was great – lots of energy was injected into the afternoon. Good structure so people knew what they all had to do, clear instructions and it met the 2.5 hour timeframe that we had allowed for. Keep up the good work – thanks Jason.
The whole team thought the Charity Bike Build was fantastic. It had plenty of everything especially the ending. The facilitation by Jason was excellent, there was great communication no problems at all. It was a great experience overall, will do it again. Thank you.
Our Charity Bike Build was great – a really good way to get out of the work head space and into having fun and team building. We received good feedback from the team and they enjoyed it thoroughly. Nicole was very confident and friendly and also kept to time well. It was great – we only wish we had more time to spend on team building! Thank you
With this particular group, we haven’t held activities that were more ‘fun’ and less work related. It was a great change and everyone had positive feedback about the Charity Bike Build program. We got to see more of the staff’s creative and competitive side come out.
On initial contact everyone was accommodating and flying your facilitator over from Sydney was really appreciated! Louisa you are lovely to deal with, very clear and not pushy!
The day itself was conducted well, once again – it didn’t feel rushed but the entire 2 hours was used well.
Deryn was very approachable and engaging. He was able to hold everyone’s interest and present with a smile!
Just wanted to drop you a quick line to thank you profusely for the smooth running of our charity bike build event. A fabulous time was had by all and my back is still sore from all the pats I received for such a brilliant idea. A special mention to Chad who exceeded my expectations as a facilitator. He fit in beautifully to our group and ensured everyone felt included. He was funny and enthusiastic. Just brilliant. Thank you Chad. Many thanks again for a positively awesome event and I definitely plan to use your services again in the future. Until next time
Thank you very much for the excellent service provided last Thursday. Our Charity Bike Build was certainly wonderful. The feedback from our staff was really positive and everyone loved the charity component to the day. The coordination of the event and your staff were most professional and I would certainly be recommending this program to others.
Our team really enjoyed the day and all the different challenges leading up to the bike build. I think it was great how all the challenges gave the teams points so it wasn’t just based on the bike build. The event was very well coordinated by total team building, it all ran smoothly with no issues. We thought Darren was fantastic, he explained everything really well and it was easy to understand. He did it all with a smile also. I feel that your company did such a great job. From the moment I started speaking with Katie to try and get the event booked in, to the day of the event. Everything ran smoothly and everyone had fun whilst donating our bikes to a great cause. Well done Total Team Building!! It was really great day, we would definitely use your company again in future.
I’ve heard a lot of positive feedback about our Charity Bike Build program. The colleagues really liked the giving of the bikes to the kids at the end. Fantastic! Given I provided short notice to the event I think that everything worked out well. I was really impressed with Darren, Katie and Marika.
It was good to have an activity that everyone enjoyed and at the same time required everyone to collaborate together. The co-ordination of our Charity Bike Build was well organised and professionally done, the event went off without a hitch. Both facilitators were very engaging and humorous, plus entertaining. They were also very good with following up pre-event to make sure everything went off smoothly. Given that this was the first we had, we were quite impressed and would share this experience with other faculties/departments.
Our Charity Bike Build was Brilliant! We have received all positive feedback from the team. We definitely hit the nail on the head with the charity aspect of the activity. The program was very well coordinated by Total Team Building which meant I had to do very little giving me more time to focus on other areas of the conference. The facilitators were great, very friendly and engaging. They quickly gained the attention of the group and the rock, paper, scissors ice breaker was hilarious. Just thank you and hopefully we will get to work together again in the future. I cannot recommend Total Team Building highly enough!
For most of our employees our Charity Bike Build was the highlight of their day on Monday! Our management team were surprised by some people’s reaction to it (some introverts stepped in and took over the activity with the kids and not leaving them until they were almost on the bus). This gave us a window into some people that will help build more fulfilling relationships on site. The coordination from Total Team Building was very good, Katie and Darren did a lot of preparation and really listened and understood what we needed to get out of the event. The facilitation were very good as well. It was good that I could take part in the activity without having to worry about what needs to happen next. Thank you for a very well organized and facilitated event! It really hit the mark by giving our employees perspective and a way in which they could contribute to the community. These activities goes a long way in adding purpose to your job and feeling that you can make a difference even in a small way!
It was absolutely fantastic and we really can’t thank you enough. It was amazing how everyone banded together to achieve the outcomes. The little girls were a delight and I was so thankful that you were able to organise it. I think it left everyone a bit speechless!
Really enjoyed the session – specific feedback from the team mentioned that it was the best team building session they had participated in. Very easy, no hassle at all. Fantastic. They were engaging, fun and really tied in with the purpose of the day. Thanks again for hosting such a great event!
The group LOVED the Charity Bike Build Challenge. Amongst the fun, we were also able to develop our team work, communication and problem solving skills. The best part was knowing we made a difference to the lives of four very deserving kids. I couldn’t have asked for a more professional co-ordination of the event leading up to the day and also the day itself. Katie kept in regular contact with me in the lead up to the event and was incredibly flexible with our requests. Darren did a fantastic job on the day and ensured the afternoon went smoothly. The Charity Bike Build is a fantastic team building activity to be a part of – will definitely recommend the program to others.
The feedback received by the participants regarding our Charity Bike Build was really positive. This is the second year we have engaged Total Team Building to organise a program for us. Compared to the one done last year, I have noticed that to add a charity activity was really a highlight and everybody was thankful about having the possibility of participating in it. We were 100% satisfied with the facilitation. Darren had a great attitude and charisma. Thank you for a good service and client support.
Hi Katie and Darren. A huge thank you from all of us at the Mental Health Co-Response Team. We genuinely enjoyed the program and it was a perfect way for our Police Officers and Mental Health Practitioners to relax from their hectic roles. There was certainly a lot of laughs and smiling faces from all the participants.
Our Charity Bike Build program was fantastic, not only did this bring our graduates together but to know we were bringing so much joy to those children that were involved only made it better! The facilitation was perfect! Thank you Jason and the team at total team building, this event was great!
This was a team with a lot of new people who are based across 2 locations – so the Charity Bike Build was a good way to introduce people to each other. The activities were accessible to all involved and they enjoyed them.
The coordination was seamless. Jason and I spoke a couple of times and all was arranged without a hitch. Jason is an excellent and experienced facilitator – and was able to pitch the activities at the right level. We had a fire drill in the middle and he was able to adapt quickly.
Thanks so much!
The team was not aware until we got to the event what we were doing. They thoroughly enjoyed the activities and were absolutely humbled by the children when they arrived to accept the bicycles. Whilst as a team we are very active in fundraising, this is the first experience where they could physically and emotionally see the benefits to the community. The program co-ordination and facilitation was brilliant. Thanks Katie and Darren for an absolutely seem less experience.
I think initially the Team were a bit apprehensive however when it got going everyone participated and enjoyed the program. It was particularly nice having the actual School accept the bikes.
Everything worked really well, from initial communication to the actual event on the day. Very smooth process.
Darren did a great job of herding the cats, once things were up and running he kept us on track.
I believe our Charity Bike Build was very well received and not only started to trigger some changes in the way we think but also, a big benefit was simply their inclusion and recognition of what they contribute on a day to day basis by being in attendance. I think the extra media coverage and attention from a Western Power perspective, was a unique outcome – it certainly doesn’t happen every day! And that was down to your amazing Bike Build program. Darren was very good with the facilitation and was flexible enough to ensure everyone was able to complete their tasks but also kept the teams that were ahead of time, engaged along the way. I felt he was professional and applied a custom approach where it was appropriate. It was a great day! Thankyou!
Our Charity Bike Build program was very well received by the team and was a fun interactive day with great team building activities. The team building activities were very engaging and time efficient to ensure the teams interest was engaged the whole time. Total Team Building would definitely be recommended by all who attended as the activities and coordination ran very smoothly and allowed all to participate including the organisers which was great! The facilitation and co-facilitation was impeccable and could not be faulted. Darren is a very great public speaker and managed to engage a very diverse team for the whole duration of the event so should be commended on this. The activities were very well designed and support was provided throughout by the facilitators if needed. Both facilitators were friendly and approachable which made a big difference to participation. A big thank you to Total Team Building for organising and facilitating such a great team building experience. It was a great touch allowing us to donate the bikes to children in departmental care it was a great eye opener to the service our organization supports. Thank you for making our team building day so successful!
The staff were very happy with the Charity Bike Build program. There was a very positive buzz in the room while the activities were being carried out and everyone was involved. I particularly appreciated the Make a Wish Foundation volunteers coming in to collect the bikes and tell us about what the foundation does. Darren did a great job in coordinating and facilitating the event. As I only approached you at the last minute, it was great that you were able to provide your service at such short notice.
Our Charity Bike Build was a really great day, everyone got involved and enjoyed it. The team exercises were fun and thought provoking. To be able to present the bikes to the children made the whole event very special. The facilitation on the day was excellent, the 2 coordinators had the right level of professionalism and the appropriate personalities and interaction skills to make the event successful. Many thanks for a great event.
The entire team thoroughly enjoyed the day. It engaged everyone, was fun, provided learning for us and had a great compassionate outcome for the children who received the bicycles. Excellent coordination, very easy. Darren was very professional, personable and engaging. A well balanced facilitator who responds well to the needs of the group and the interaction levels of different people. Keep doing what you do well, it really was one of the best sessions of it’s kind I have attended. Well done and thank you on a wonderful (half) day. Our objectives were met and our expectations exceeded. I’ll definitely be spreading the word within the wider JLL team about this event with Total Team Building.
Loved it! Great team building, good fun, challenging and a little competitive. Perfect. The activities were a great way to ease into it and get everyone warmed up. Perfect. Professional, fun and well structured. I think Total team building are very professional and well run. Thank you. The team are still talking about it and really enjoyed the day.
We have received overwhelmingly positive feedback from participants regarding our Charity Bike Build program. On a scale from 1(bad) to 10 (good) 94% of participants scored the day with 10 (42%), 9 and 8. The team building activity was mentioned by most of the participants in the top 3 things they appreciated about the away day event. The co-ordination and facilitation was in one word: flawless. I appreciated the professionalism and communication of Total Team Building and would highly recommend them to my colleagues. A big “thank you” to Total Team Building team, especially for organizing for the kids to come along. Furthermore, I was very impressed that safety was as important to organisers as it is important to Shell – having the bikes checked and fixed by a professional.
Our Charity Bike Build program was a rewarding experience, they were pleasantly surprised when the kids came to collect their bikes. Everyone had a great time and it definitely brought out the competitive nature of the team, we would definitely recommend this for a future event. The co-ordination was great, didn’t have to worry about anything. Darren was fantastic, he knew his stuff and made it really enjoyable for the team.
The “Charity Bike Build” was the perfect team building activity for our group. Both challenging and fun with lots of other activities to keep people fully engaged in the morning. Having the children come to collect their bicycles at the end imbued meaning to the activity. The smiles on their faces will always be remembered!
From the very beginning, until it was all packed up, communications with Katie and Darren were professional, easy and extremely well handled. There was good consideration of issues such as safety and logistics and flexibility as required. We appreciated the extras such as the photos taken on the day which help to recall our learnings back in the workplace. We couldn’t be happier with the service and recommend Total Team Building highly.
A massive THANK YOU to both yourself and Darren for your tireless efforts in coordinating our Team Building! We are very appreciative of all your services and will definitely contact you again for future team building activities. We thought the activities and Charity Bike Build program were well designed to be inclusive and encourage participation by all staff members and suitable for all fitness levels. Total Team Building coordinated the event very efficiently, both on the day and in the lead up to the event, nothing was too difficult. Thank you Katie for all your assistance and frequent communication, you definitely made it a lot easier to coordinate. Darren was engaging, charismatic and well organised on the day. He was able to support the whole group without difficulty and provide clear and concise instructions. Darren also went around to all the groups to assist them when required. The staff all had a great time! We appreciated all the efforts by everyone involved and were also appreciative of our budget constraints and your willingness to work within our budget.
The Charity Bike Build program was great, a good mix of activities that really allowed for our team to collaborate and get the most out of our individual strengths. Being able to gift the bikes directly to the children/carers at the end of the day was a nice touch. The coordination of the event was great, any questions I had in regards to the activities was answered promptly and in simple-terms. The team was excellent in helping me keep the activity a secret. Jason and Louisa were terrific, on-time even on short notice and genuinely dedicated. Thanks for all your hard work in bringing this to fruition.
Our Charity Bike Build program was absolutely fantastic. The team from Total Team Building were professional and efficient, a wonderful event. Having the children come in at the end made it all the more meaningful. Their co-ordination was excellent, they were efficient, prepared and kept the crowd in check. Wonderful, would definitely recommend this to other organizations.
Our Charity Bike Build program was probably the best team building we have ever done!
Thanks so much for a fabulous night.. it has gone down very well. Much appreciated, will stay in touch and hope to use you again next year!!
We all loved the Charity Bike Build! Jason was an excellent facilitator. Very well explained instructions. A lot of fun!
The coordination was seamless from start to finish, so easy to book in. I hardly had to lift a finger. Jason was excellent! Very fun!
I think everyone thought that the Charity Bike Build program was fun, varied and well run. I also think that the charity added the extra touch and tied it all together to give an extra purpose. I think the program was very well run. Enquiries and questions were answered very promptly and it was easy to get in touch (and nothing was too hard!). The actual day was run on time and there were no hassles which is what you want when engaging a service like this.Thank you! We had a great morning that set us up for a great day!
Jason I just wanted to follow up and say a huge thank you for yesterday. It was by far the best team building session this group has ever seen. I havent been able to escape the compliments since yesterday arvo and I have you to thank for it. We will definitely be keeping your contact details near by for another session. Thanks again for such a great day Jason and Chad
Great opportunity to be able to do something to give back to the community yet still have that team bonding environment.
Great organization by team. The lead up to our event was very straight forward and clear. All details were covered and our expectations well managed.
Both Jason and Deryn were great. They were there early to get everything set up and ready to go by the time the team arrived. They set the tone for an engaging, enthusiastic session.
It was a really nice touch to be able to have a rep from the charity available to come and talk to the team about exactly where the bikes were going and what type of work they do.
I have heard from many of my colleagues how much they enjoyed the challenges, and how great the outcome was, especially seeing the kids riding on their new bikes. The challenges provided great opportunities to encourage team building and to get to interact with and develop team relationships in a limited time. It was a well run and structured program that had an added benefit of delivering bikes to children in need. The coordination was well managed, and facilitated 8 different groups at various stages of different activities without hampering the progress of any team. I will keep you in mind and recommend you to our other functional teams in the future.
Total Team Building were very professional through all aspects of organising (booking through to execution). The task was a bit left field which was great and the concept of donating the bikes to a children’s charity is a great way for us to contribute back to the community. To that end the senior managers and graduates were very impressed with the event. Both (coordination and facilitation) were terrific. Very prompt reply to emails, sometimes that little bit of extra effort goes a long way and is noticed by people (such as myself)! Katie had to help with a lot of additional work but was always pleasant and helpful to get it done (I doubt I would have been so) Darren was a great facilitator, he was engaging, professional and funny. Great job guys! Everyone had an awesome time and was really impressed and said it’s one of the best team building events that has been done (and we do a lot of team building events…)
The team thoroughly enjoyed the games and the bike build. Some activities were quite challenging which brought out the competitive streak in a few of us! The event was coordinated very well the team that we had gave us clear instructions and reassured teams that were losing hope. A wonderful day thoroughly enjoyed by all. Looking forward to using you again.
Our Charity Bike Build program was a fun and rewarding experience. Our facilitator was good, he was flexible and great with the team. I was a bit worried that giving the bikes to the kids could be a bit cheesy or patronising but it was handled really well.
Our South32 team was very pleased with the whole Charity Bike Build program. We had a very cultural and age diverse group, however, everyone was able to participate in all activities which was great. Our entire team left the day feeling a true sense of achievement and purpose. Thank you! Darren did a top job as our facilitator. He was charismatic, relaxed and interactive but kept the activity on schedule.
We really enjoyed the afternoon participating in the Charity Bike Build and Jason was a great facilitator. The program co-ordination was seamless from start to finish, clear communication and engagement. Jason was great, he was very friendly, built rapport with people, explained the games etc. and was really invested in the outcome. I look forward to working with you again and referring you to others.
Our staff found the activities included in our Charity Bike Build program fun, engaging and thought provoking and were overwhelmed with emotion when they met the children from Heartkids and handed over their completed bikes, it was priceless.
This is one team building event that our staff will be talking about for some time. Darren and the team were very organised and encouraging and facilitated the program like true professionals.
THANK YOU IT WAS AN AWESOME MORNING !!
“It was a special experience for me and a nice surprise to have team building associated with philanthropy. I haven’t experienced that before and it was a great feeling. I also thought he was a great facilitator. ”
“Inspirational and worthy. Really made me feel good to see those kids get the bikes. I’m glad there was a real bike mechanic there…..”
“Excellent activity enforcing company values by having team building associated with philanthropy. Very high on ‘feel good’ factor.”
“Best team building ever for NC conference. Really like this one especially involving with charity bike.”
“What was most enjoyable was the Team Building challenge – it was a surprise at the end to hear of bikes being given away to such a great charity. Meeting up with the kids was also great. A heartwarming experience in the midst of our busy lives! ”
“Really good! Was nice to be able to give the bike to the charity.”
“A great activity. I didn’t realise we would also do other team building challenges. It was interesting to see each persons personalities coming out when the pressure was on… The Charity Bike Build seemed really popular with the team. I’ve heard some very positive feedback, and everyone enjoyed meeting the kids who got the bikes, and it felt like it wasn’t just a “waste of corporate money and time” activity.”
“Again, an excellent idea. Very novel.”
The team absolutely love it, it was a day of fun and heart warming to see the kids’ faces.
It was well coordinated, all communications leading to the day have been seamless and clear. I really like how we have been kept informed all the way/ A true professional team. Also the extra touch (water and sunscreen and chairs) is very highly appreciated (you don’t know how much this has helped our logistics and getting there on the day).
Darren has done a good job with instruction & engaging all participants.
A great day out, thank you for taking the effort to get all the kids in. The most valuable day for participants is the end where they see the kids faces so this part is crucial. Thank you very much!
We can’t thank you enough for the opportunity to take part in your Charity Bike Build program. The kids have talked non-stop about how much they enjoyed the program and how touched they were to actually see the kids who had been chosen to receive the bikes, get to present the bikes and then help them learn to ride them. Some of the comments from the kids were: “Easily the best thing I have ever done”, “I felt so touched to see the kids and to have helped them”, “Such a worthwhile thing to do and we should do more of this”, “Awesome”, “The best feeling”, “I cried”, “Inspiring”, “Amazing – just can’t describe”, “Was a good feeling”, “Makes you realize how lucky we are”. We have every intention of including this activity in our Leadership Program each year. So very, very worthwhile and such a good way for our Leaders, indeed anyone, to give back to others less fortunate than themselves. Co-ordination was perfect, the program was extremely well designed and appropriate to the topic. Darren was a great facilitator and the kids thought he was awesome and fun. High praise indeed from our kids!
