The Go Race (now known as our Amazing Race) program was planned & structured to incorporate specific elements of the strategy we were presenting to our employees, rather than being an off the shelf/one size fits all program. Katie & Darren provided great guidance in how to best get across our messages to our employees. This allowed us to debrief the Go Race activities during our afternoon strategy presentation and link these activities back to the strategy. During our Go Race it was very clear that all of our employees were having a great time and enjoyed the various challenges put in front of them. All employees were encouraged to step out of their comfort zone and challenge themselves, and the program allowed them to do this in a supportive environment. It was fantastic for our Management Team to be looking at 70 happy, excited and a little bit tired employees at the end of our event. Many employees have asked when we will be able to organise another event. The coordination & preparation of our event was first class. We had ongoing discussions regarding the various activities, the schedule for the event and contingency plans should the weather be unfavourable. In the days leading up to the event it looked as though we would need to go with Plan B due to forecast heavy rain. Total Team Building planned accordingly, leaving the decision as late as possible and staying in touch with us. Fortunately the weather held out and we were able to proceed as originally scheduled. On the day Darren & the team of facilitators were outstanding in coordinating with each other at the various checkpoints, ensuring each activity ran smoothly and that each employee was getting the most out of the experience. It was also great that our Management Team that were not participating in the Race were able to tag along to watch and assist wherever possible. We could not have asked for a better run, more effective, enjoyable event, especially given the very reasonable cost for the morning’s activities. Thank you so much to Darren, Katie & the team, and we look forward to working with you again soon. Thank you all again!!!
