Sam McCarthy – Scentre Group
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!
Vicky Burgess – Executive Manager – Suncorp
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.
Andre Sequeira – Senior Advisor – Career Entry – Water Corporation
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.
Zoena Madeira – Education Support Coordinator – Monash Business School
The team thoroughly enjoyed the Robot Wars event and found the activities stimulating and challenging. Total team building made the process easy and entertaining – the team had nothing but positive feedback from the event. Darren was a great facilitator, again made everything easy and ensured the event ran efficiently in the time frame. Thanks for the event and the school loved the robots. We look forward to using Total Team Building again in the future. We have also recommended yourselves to the Jandakot Primary School.
Holly Escott – HR/HSSEQ Manager – Deep Sea Mooring
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.
Chloe Burgess – Administration Assistant Pluto – Woodside Energy Ltd
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.
Chad Daly – JLL
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.
Australian Catholic University
We loved the Win-it-in-a-minute. I was surprised at the level of participation and enthusiasm. It was fantastic. The coordination was great. Easy process. Great service. Adam was great!! Thanks Adam for your big smile and enthusiasm. It was a fantastic afternoon and I was so impressed with everyone’s participation. Even though it was on a Friday afternoon no one even looked at their watches once. Thank you!! I highly recommend your service.
Stacey Wilkinson – Change Manager – Information Management & Technology Division – Department of Education & Training
Building the Bridge was a total and complete success – Wonderful! We loved the team and received rave reviews. Jason & Deryn’s facilitation was fabulous – keep being awesome. We really appreciate everything you did. It was the perfect exercise for the whole team to do! Well done!
Vidia Henshaw – Rest Super
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!
Iris Schuurman – Project Manager Business Operations – ES2
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.
Jeralee O’Byrne – Connections Partner – Team Lead Commercial – Exclaim IT
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.
Oliver Best – Partnership Coordinator – LGIASuper
All the staff loved our Bridging the Gap program. I even had a few messages last night thanking me for organising the session. A great result. Total Team Building were very easy to deal with. They took care of everything, which allowed me to also enjoy the session. Nicole was wonderful, friendly and easy to work with. Keep doing what you are doing! Thank You.
Tammy Markey – Bathroom Field Marketing Coordinator WA/NT – Reece Bathroooms
The team thoroughly enjoyed the indoor Amazing Race activity, thought it was fun and had some good laughs. It is something different to what you would normally have in a team building day. The co-ordination was excellent. Louisa was fantastic to work with. She ensured to get in contact with me with each planning step and was able to answer any of my questions. Jason was also great when he contacted me to confirm he plan of action and offered some suggestions. Overall it was excellent. Deryn was great! I can understand why this activity doesn’t necessarily need a facilitator however having Deryn there added to the experience. He would wonder around the groups laughing along with them. Overall it was a fantastic experience and I cannot thank you and the Total Team Building group enough. We cannot wait to have you back at our next building day.
Emma Cocks – Project Officer – Executive & Team Support – Australian Institute of Sport
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!
Sonja Woodhouse – National Sales Support Analyst – Masterpet Australia Pty Ltd
Our Win it in a Minute was great fun which resulted in some great team work. The program co-ordination was brilliant – absolutely nothing to fault. Amazing team, very friendly and super organised. We couldn’t recommend Total Team Building highly enough, you guys are just so good at what you do, you always listen to what our requirements are and deliver – Thank you!
Claire Van Der Putten – Executive Assistant – West – Coates Hire
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.
May Sullivan – Transalta Energy
The Bridging the Gap program is a really great idea, lots of subtle messages. In the beginning it seems a little overwhelming however how it unfolds is brilliant. The program was very structured and well explained. As organisers, we could relax knowing the activity was going to be managed perfectly by TTB. Darren’s facilitation was excellent. Very clear and he articulated the activity well. TTB are a pleasure to work with, they make our lives so much easier. We have worked with TTB twice now for 2 very different activities and both have been fantastic and very well received by our staff.
Roisin Carmody – Foundation Housing
The team gave me very positive feedback about our afternoon. The Treasure Hunt was an ideal choice for us with a great mix of activities which were on the whole quite challenging. It brought out a little friendly competitiveness and the way the finale was organised meant that all teams were in with a chance right until the end. The co-ordination was excellent. Very professional, experienced and quick to respond to queries. I felt supported. Darren’s facilitation was great! Lots of people asked about where I had heard about him. Warm, personable, well organized and professional. Couldn’t fault anything.
Claire Jones – Professional Lead Occupational Therapy, Senior Occupational Therapist – Fremantle Hospital
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!
Kerryn Coles – Deputy Principal – Leeming Senior High School – Education Support Centre
The feedback I have received in relation to both the Vault & Win it in a Minute workshops has been fantastic. All participants really enjoyed how engaging the facilitators where and how much fun they had with people they may not of met previously. Total Team Building’s co-ordination was fantastic, Katie is awesome to deal with, very attentive and efficient. All the facilitators where awesome, please pass on our appreciation.
Lauren Rooney – Operations and Development Coordinator – Department of Education
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.
Our Treasure Hunt was fantastic! It brought us all closer together and helped us build social connections with each other The co-ordination of the program was very good. They were responsive and accommodating to our needs and context, had prompt communication, excellent resources and coordination – Brilliant! Darren was very engaging, motivating and fun. He was flexible with the activities and made the day very enjoyable. Even most reluctant participants surprised themselves and loved the activities.
Nadia Hall – Dean of Arts / Learning Support – Comet Bay College
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?
Vicky Hope – Medical Imaging Technologist – Envision Medical Imaging
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.
Melissa Ruthen – Relationships Australia South Australia
We participated in the Survivor program. Overall the program was run efficiently and effectively. There was a good mix of activities and had people engaged.
Staff were engaging and interactive and made the activities fun. The team were very good at communicating prior to the event and on-site during the activities. The staff made it easy so that we didn’t have to worry about a thing for the period of time the activities were being undertaken. They were clear to understand and made sure everyone was engaged throughout the duration of the activity. We would definitely recommend TTB for any corporate event.
Rebecca Gresham – People & Culture Specialist – West Australian Football Commission
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!
Sonia McAlister – Telethon Kids Institute
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!
Meleanna Waters – Activities Officer – Soldier On
Our team really enjoyed the Treasure Hunt activity, they said it was better than expected. It was engaging, fun and catered to our group’s diverse skill set. The coordination was seamless, as soon as we arrived everything was set up and ready to go. Dealing with Total Team Building from getting the initial quote through to hosting the event has been a breeze. Darren and Nicole were excellent facilitators, they brought energy and fun to the day and managed to make everyone feel comfortable and involved. Total Team Building make an excellent impression – the facilitators clearly know what they were doing and how to do it. Just want to say thank you for making this such a smooth process and creating a successful and enjoyable event.
Jasmine Sillifant – Executive Governance Officer – Shire of Dardanup
We thoroughly enjoyed our Survivor themed team building day. Some of our team approached the day with minimal expectations, however all left completely buzzing about the experience. We are still talking about the day constantly and have plenty of laughs and stories that will last for years…not to mention video and photo evidence!! Total Team Buiding’s co-ordination was seamless. An incredibly driven team. The service from start to finish was fast, thorough, and personalised. Nicole was superb in every aspect, and all while she was nursing an ACL injury. She got even the most tentative members of our team participating to the fullest and loving every moment.
Ryan Smith – Manager – Valley of the Giants Treetop Walk
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.
Christine Blake – Policy & Implementation Officer – Mental Health Co-Response Unit – WA Police Force
We thoroughly enjoyed the day, the Ransom program was easy to navigate and the feedback from the team was that the enjoyed the day and had great fun navigating and taking those photos. Co-ordination was a breeze, we had very good communication and everything went without a glitch. Darren was fantastic! We couldn’t have done it without him, he gave clues when required to ensure that we not only enjoyed the day but also ensure a smooth progress so that everyone was able to achieve their challenges. Feedback from everyone was that it was great and as the organizers of the event we are amazed at the technology being used to facilitate the day which was fantastic.
Jeffrey Chen – A/Team Leader – Curtin University
All the activities in our Survivor program were well suited to everyone. No one felt left out or that they couldn’t participate in anything. We all enjoyed it. It was well organised and there was great communication. Both Darren and Rachel did an amazing job! We had fun! Thank you for a great event.
Jonelle Schultz – Onshore Offshore & BD, Sales & Tendering Administrator – TechnipFMC
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.
Eleni Zachopoulos – PA / Business Administrator – Diona Civil Engineering Contractors
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.
Laura Hogben – HR Business Partner Growth & Innovation – Rio Tinto Exploration
The whole team thoroughly enjoyed the Amazing Race around Adelaide. Highly recommend the program for teams visiting a city – we saw a lot of Adelaide that we probably wouldn’t have seen if not for the race. Total Team Building’s co-ordination was seamless! Katie & Darren were lovely to deal with and made things so easy. Nicole was absolutely Brilliant! We were all feeling a bit foggy after a day at the wineries and a late night, but she certainly helped get us moving! Keep doing what you’re doing! Thank you!
Yvette Crawley – Business Support Manager – Tandem Partners
Our team absolutely loved your Survivor challenge and the team building experience. Darren was awesome and everyone was still talking about it this morning when we got back to work. Total Team Buiding’s service and co-ordination was awesome, nothing to fault.
Darren’s facilitation on the day was 10/10 – he texted me to advise he was already at Mandoon and was very flexible as our meeting ran over by approx. 10 mins. Everything was set up when we arrived and his instructions and interaction with our team was spot on.
From first contact to the actual day, service was 10/10 – thank you very much for making this experience very enjoyable.
Tara Dooley – Executive Assistant – Homebuyers Centre
Our Win it in a Minute program was highly engaging, lots and lots of fun. Some games were more challenging than others but it was a good balance. Good to end on the Junk in the Trunk game because it was the silliest! Total Team Building (Katie and Jason) were easy to deal with, on time, had everything that they needed and were flexible with times if we needed to drag games out/end them early. Jason was high energy, kept us all on track and motivated. Total Team Building were just overall very easy to deal with and very friendly and organised. Good music choices. We have used Total Team Building in the past and I think that this particular game is the most fun, high energy choice! Absolutely loved it.
Chloe Scutter – Builders & Contractors Service Team – SA Power Networks
We participated in the Win it in a minute and it was really a laugh a minute. We had so much fun with Nicole and with our teams. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed it and were still talking about it on Monday. The co-ordination was fantastic. I can’t sing their praises enough. Right from my first enquiry to even after the event, Total Team Building have been fantastic! I would highly recommend them to anyone. Nicole was great. She was welcoming, fun, inclusive. We had a great time with her. Just to reiterate what a fantastic time we had and how even the small details were so great e.g. the medals for the winning team. A fantastic, well organized company. Thanks so much!
Paula Brooks – Operations Assistant – Ronald McDonald House Charities Western Australia
The Treasure Hunt program had a good mix between physical and mental challenges. They all involved team-work and allowed participants to play on their strengths. The co-ordination was good. Such a smooth process from initial inquiry to the day and finishing right on time. Nicole was great – she led the day well and kept everyone’s attention throughout.
Ellen Drury – Assistant Property Manager – QV1 Management
I think everyone had a really good day participating in the Ransom program! Since we are quite an office based team I think it was really good to get outside and get a bit of physical exercise in at the same time. I think finishing at the end at the pub was a great idea, a few of us stayed around for 2 to 3 hours after the event which was really good for the team building. I think the coordination was very good, I felt confident that the day was going to run smoothly. Speaking with Katie to organize the day and Darren on the day, I think all bases were covered. Darren was clear to explain all the tasks involved and was on the line in case anything went wrong (our team accidentally skipped one of the sections and the app didn’t seem to allow us to go back to it) we called Darren and he helped get us back on track. The team really loved the content from the day, I shared it around this morning and there were laughs around the office, a good way to start a Monday!
Julien Richards – RAC WA
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!
Emily Bessell – HR Administrator – Fremantle Dockers Football Club
We all really enjoyed the Vault program. It was great that we all got to work together on so many activities rather than be split into smaller groups. The linkages of the activities to communication and team work in the office taught us many useful lessons. The coordination of the event was wonderful. It was so smooth and easy for us to organise. Liaising with Katie was great. She was more than happy to answer all of our questions and accommodate us. Darren’s facilitation was very well done. He explained the tasks well beforehand and gave us good direction. We probably could have had a little more engagement and help from Darren when we were struggling but understand that working it out ourselves was the whole idea. Darren’s ‘debrief’ at the end was very good. It was really important to share what we had learnt with each other and also have him share his observations as well. Darren is a great communicator and the tasks were really fun and a great way to break the ice with each other (especially doing the leg tie one first).
Laura Underwood – Administrative Support Officer – CTP Insurance Regulator
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.
Cherie Eldridge – WHS & HR Manager – SA Structural Pty Ltd
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.
Dana Sillence – EA to GM/Office Administration Manager – Frasers Property
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!
Claire Van Der Putten – Executive Assistant – Executive GM – Coates Hire
We found the Win it in a Minute team activity really enjoyable and it met our objectives of offering a fun team-building activity which allowed the cluster groups to get to know one another better through focused activities that would have pushed some people outside of their comfort zone. The activity was well coordinated and explained very well by the facilitators who were personable, easy-going and approachable.
Louise Byrne – WA Primary Health Alliance
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.
Heidi Daehn-Alabi – Regional Housing Specialist – Adelaide – Defence Housing Australia
The Ransom program was very well received, the right level of hard and easy and everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves! The program co-ordination was great. Darren did an amazing job, a total professional who knew how to take command of the room and get everyone up and organized! I think you have this down to a fine art. Thanks again for your facilitation, it really kick started our 2 day forum!
Jen Callow – Executive Assistant to Vice President Projects Minerals Australia – BHP
The team thoroughly enjoyed the Pirates of the Swan program, it was great to get out on the water and we had a beautiful sunny day to top it off. The activities are great and so was the chocolate! The day was enjoyed by all! Katie’s flexibility around our changes we appreciated, nothing was too hard or too late for her and I know we likely created re-work for her, we appreciated the fact that nothing felt like too much trouble. I was impressed by her professionalism and high level of customer service. Darren was great, we met him at the Yacht club and he laid out the plan for the day. It was clear and concise, and the team building activity at the end was great too. Just thanks again!!!
Rachael Heaphy-Scaife – Medical Administrator – Health & Medical Team – Chevron Australia Pty Ltd

- The program was challenging as well as entertaining. The activities were certainly varied enough to challenge on several fronts while still allowing success and even a few laughs for all who participated.

- Well prepared event with a good selection of team participating activities.

- The facilitation on the day was good. Messaging was clear and aligned with the theme of the earlier office based theory activities.
- Excellent for the selected program; relaxing, close by and overall very convenient.
- Facilitator was good.

Lorraine Mitchell – Management Assistant – Integrated Projects Program – Woodside Energy Ltd
The Survivor program was fun and engaging for our team. Everyone could participate in some way, shape or form. The competitive sides of our team came out and it made for a good competition. The support into the lead up to the day and the running of the day were exceptional. Darren and Nicole were very clear with their instruction, encouraging and genuinely interested in getting to know our people. They were very efficient and flexible on the day. We have had an overwhelmingly positive feedback from our group. They really enjoyed the day and most people want to participate in a day like this again. Thank you for helping us run a successful team building event. Darren’s suggestion of dressing up and creating a chant pre-event, really made our team communicate and collaborate even before the day began! Even though some people were worried and apprehensive prior to the event, they ended up providing very positive feedback and enjoyed the day!
Vicky Hope – Medical Imaging Technologist – Envision Medical Imaging
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.
Lauren Blackham – Personal Assistant / Administration Co-ordinator – Butler Settineri
We had a fantastic day! The Survivor challenge was a great mix of physical and mental challenges. It was great to deal with you Katie, you always answered our questions quickly and made it very easy for us in the lead up to the event – thank you. It was also great to chat to Darren, his conversation reassured me that everything was under control. Nicole and Isla were excellent! They were very patient with us and so easy to get along with. Nicole had it all under control. Thank you for a great day! The photo’s are great to have as well!
Lauren Blackham – Personal Assistant / Administration Co-ordinator – Butler Settineri
We all had an absolute blast of a day with our Scavenger Hunt! Everyone, even those staff that are not normally receptive to such activities, had fun and lots of laughs. The program had just the right amount of structure and freedom. All pre-coordination of the event was clear and timely and help was provided when requested. Nicole was excellent. She was full energy and enthusiasm and all her instructions were delivered clearly. Thanks again for delivering such a fun event. I would recommend your programs without hesitation.
Michelle Hort – Marketing & Communications Manager – Gymnastics WA
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.
Carol Hobbs – Centre Officer – Office of Development and Alumni Relations – Edith Cowan University
All of the feedback regarding our Survivor was extremely positive and the event was well run, the activities were really team oriented and it was extremely enjoyable. It was coordinated excellently, in a short turn around. Nicole was great, engaged with everyone, ran the sessions well and worked with the weather (as it was quite a warm day, so she explained she hadn’t laid out all of the activities prior as she normally would as she was chasing the shade). She managed the group well. Thank you so much for the coordination of the event, it was really enjoyable and did work on team communication and working together, and I only received positive comments from everyone who attended.
Dayle Fifita – Human Resources Business Partner – TechnipFMC
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.
Jodie Coutts – Safety Officer – South West Region – Water Corporation
Our Treasure Hunt certainly got people thinking and outside the square at times. All the staff have commented on how much they enjoyed the afternoon. Total Team Building’s co-ordination was excellent. Darren was great, professional, organized and fun. Everything was well organized, communication was great and everything went smoothly. I would highly recommend the company to others.
Fiona Wake – Practice Manager – Western Radiology
Our team really liked the activities with very positive feedback from staff who thought that it was fun, cool and “real” team building. Staff made comments that it enabled different people to step into the leadership role and that they could show different sets of skills. The co-ordination was great – fantastic organisation and the staff mentioned that Darren was a great facilitator. We had a blast. Thanks very much for your professionalism and for the co-ordination of these events which we felt achieved the outcomes we were looking for!
Caroline Jones – Coordinator Mary Davies Library and Community Centre – City of Rockingham
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.
Shay Holdsworth – Customer Service Manager – CSBP Fertilisers
Our Pirates of the Swan program was a fantastic day and very well run by Darren. The sailing was unique and bought out some characteristics in the guys we hadn’t seen before and the activates after the sailing had a great balance of team work, skill and requirement for clear communication.Whilst we arrived a little late due to some coordination issues, we were met with a smile by Darren who helped us pick up lost time by having everything so organized and ready to go. The event ran smoothly and the activities were fun yet challenging enough to keep everyone enthused.
I think the balance on the day between on the water and land activities was perfect. The location was brilliant as it provided enough shade during the land activities and even the sailing club locals cheering us on as we participated.
The communication from first contact through the website, to execution on the day was also perfect. It made it easy to organise with little effort from our side.
Neil Brook – HSE Manager – Western Region – TW Power Services
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.
Antoinette Vorster – Manager Corporate Services – Joondalup Education Support Centre
Our Treasure Hunt program was run really well and was enjoyed by all of us. It was a great opportunity to get out of the office and have a good time, we love a bit of competition and so we enjoyed all of the challenges that were presented to us. Each activity that we participated in was challenging in its own way and kept us entertained and on our feet. Katie was extremely helpful and answered any questions I had straight away. Considering it’s a busy time of year and a lot of programs were being run at the time, I was given all the assistance I needed and more. Darren was excellent on the day. Very friendly and welcoming. He ran the activities with ease and helped everyone where he could. He explained everything very well and put up with our overly competitive nature. Thanks again for running such a wonderful day. Safe to say the team will be talking about it for a while!
Jasmine Macri – Administrative Assistant / Sales Administrator – Law in Order
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.
Carmen Penery – Regional General Manager, Commercial Banking WA South – Westpac
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.
Deb Browning – One2One
Treasure Hunt Program:
It was interesting and challenging.
The team building was really a great experience.
If was a lot of fun which allowed us to develop a more friendly and yet professional relationship among the team.
It was great to be a part of this program. As I hardly get any chance to spend time in the office so it was good to interact with the team and get to know each other.
I thought it was excellent, the mix of activities between physical activities and challenges was perfect.
The activities were fun.
The event was well organized. There was no time that it became boring. It was really exciting all the time.
On-field coordination was good
Everything was well prepared.
TTB team was always ready to help and answer our questions about the games and puzzles.
Great, no further comments.
It was well-organized.
Nicole did great to set it up perfectly. Everything was all good and ready to go. We didn’t have to face any delay or any issue during the event, so I would say Nicole did outstanding work.
Great, everything went to time and flowed smoothly. A couple of times when we were falling behind we were given little clues to help us solve things, which was great – not enough to change the placings, but just enough to make sure we finished (a perfect balance).
She facilitated well and looked after the teams.
Good exercise and fun games.
Over all it was good experience, had some fun and enjoyed the day with the team in a lighter environment.
Various Participants – Yokogawa Australia Pty Ltd
Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the “Ransom” challenge and working together as teams to ultimately get to the final location.
The co-ordination of the event was great, everything (including organization leading up to the event) was managed efficiently and meant that our company didn’t have to worry about a thing, except for turning up on the day. Thank you to the Total Team Building Team for what was a very enjoyable Team Building Activity – we would highly recommend your services and look forward to working with you again in the future!
Emma Edwards – General Manager – Kangaroo Island Pure Grain
Myself and all of the team participated in the Vault Event which allowed us all to interact and communicate openly with one another regardless of positions in the organization. It also allowed some of the less vocal members of the team to have their say and take part which is something we all gained from. But more than anything it provided us with the means to enjoy ourselves and have a laugh with no inhibitions of it being a work event.
The coordination and organization of the event, location, timing and lunch was all taken care of by Total Team Building as a package thus allowing me only one point of contact which made the day more pleasant and hassle free. Thanks to you both for making the day a great one.
Douglas Hamilton – Snr Maintenance Engineer – Woodside Energy Ltd
The team really enjoyed The Vault and the activities. One of the best aspects of the program was that the group had to operate as one team rather than multiple competing against each other. The feedback/debriefing session at the end was also a very nice touch to the whole session. Everything was well organised and completely prepared for. The only hiccup came from our end with the meeting room not supporting the IPad. Darren was very well spoken, encouraging and very responsive to the team dynamic. Just a huge thanks to you and Darren for a wonderful afternoon!
Allana Robinson – BHP Billiton
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.
Amy Krieger – State Project Co-ordinator WA – Bendigo & Adelaide Bank
Everybody loved the Adventure Quest. They found out new t
hings 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.
Laureen Floyd – Gumala Aboriginal Corporation
Our Win it in a Minute program was the best fun that our organization has ever had for a staff event.
The organisation and facilitation was fantastic, seamless and very well prepared.
We certainly hope to work with you guys again for another event.
Roisin Carmody – Foundation Housing
What a fab event! Darren and the ladies nailed it and the feedback was amazing!!! Thank you so much as always for making us look good with your awesome events and making the planning stress free!! Our Treasure Hunt was super fun, challenging, well organised and executed with the best team running the event 10/10 – can not complain about anything!! Keep Doing what you do! Thank you so much!!!
Belinda MacPherson – Team Assistant Business Banking WA – Bankwest
Great fun trivia event that all members of the team could take part in, not based on IQ. Given that the event was pulled together at short notice, we were still given the same professionalism and service that we would expect with months of planning. The event ran smoothly and Darren was a great facilitator of the event. Thank you again for helping out at such short notice, we really enjoyed the quiz.
Sarah Whitley – Team Assistant Retirement Living – Lendlease
I thought the Scavenger Hunt program was well organized and offered variety of tasks and opportunities for teamwork. My team enjoyed the day and I think we all worked well together. The competitive edge added a level of impetus to the day. I was very impressed with the organization of the event with Katie maintaining contact in the lead up and answering any questions I had. The facilitation on the day was fantastic as Darren is an excellent communicator and showed flexibility on the day. His consideration of the older members of the team was appreciated. I and my team members had a thoroughly enjoyable time. Many team members suggested we should do this every six months and I believe that was due in large part to the way in which the event was organized and facilitated. I have learned a lot about myself and some members of my team through this experience and I thank you for your service.
Sheryl Foster – Team Leader Community Care Services – Australian Red Cross
Our Survivor was fantastic – well organized and with good equipment. Our students loved it! Excellent – well organized friendly facilitators. The team were really interested in our students and thoughtful communication given we are an international college. Everything was so easy to arrange through Katie and her team. Fantastic customer service and a great event for our students. We will be booking again!
Liz Journeaux – Perth – Employability Skills Co-ordinator – Taylors College
We have had terrific feedback about our Scavenger Hunt! Staff really enjoyed the chance to spend time with people that they don’t normally hang out with and they also enjoyed exploring the city. They also liked the pace of the day – busy but not crazy. They staff were very professional and approachable. Everyone was impressed by the friendly way that they encouraged all participants. Thanks so much for helping to organise our lunch at Gloucester Park – the food was great.
Andrea Woodgate – Assistant Principal – St Kieran Catholic School
Participant feedback from our Scavenger Hunt:
Interesting and fun activity. Gets everyone involved and builds team spirit
It was a great day
It was a great team building day with lots of fun and getting to know work colleagues
An enjoyable way of recognizing each other’s strengths. See others outside the work environment was also an eye-opening experience
Feedback regarding the co-ordination of the program and the facilitation on the day:
She was awesome
Loved her energy
Well planned day
Delivered everything they said they would
She was excellent
Very well done and engaging
Well planned and facilitated
Very enthusiastic and extremely patient – and fair!
We didn’t want the day to end. Thanks for a great day. I will be recommending this event to colleagues.
Marion Wright – Principal – Koorana Education Support Centre
Our team really enjoyed our Scavenger Hunt and laughed non stop. There were lots of different challenges and showed some team members excellent knowledge of the Perth CBD (while others had no idea!!) The whole interaction with Katie and the day was fantastic. Really well organised and friendly and nothing was too much trouble.
Nicole was a gem! She was so bubbly and enthusiastic and we all really enjoyed her company. It definitely was a good idea having a female to run the Hens Day. She went above and beyond and was happy to organise a bar tab at the final stop that I could pay when I got there. We wish she could have joined us for the sunset cruise afterwards. It was a great day and Sandra really enjoyed herself. Everyone really liked it and it really set a positive mood for the cruise after. It was such a different thing to do for a Hen’s Day and it really suited the bride. A lot of people are now thinking of recommending you guys for their work development days! An excellent program and would absolutely use you guys again if I get the chance.
Jeanette Bell – Hens Day – Scavenger Hunt
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 !!
Amanda Burke – Personal Assistant to the Principal – Mater Christi Catholic Primary School
Every team member really enjoyed the Bridging the Gap team challenge. We all found it very fun and everyone participated effectively to achieve the challenge. Jason was fantastic, friendly & very professional. He arrived early with everything organized for the build a bridge challenge. The day ran very smoothly. We will defiantly be contacting you in the future for other team building activities.
Stacey – 1iCT
Loved it! The Survivor was definitely a program that catered for ALL. The co-ordination was excellent. The day and activities planned flowed seamlessly and there were sufficient breaks provided considering the hot day. Thank you to Total Team Building team for organising and coordinating such a great event. Our staff thoroughly enjoyed all the activities and will definitely be seeking out your services again.
Erina Hill – Regional Support Officer – Defence Housing Australia
“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.”
Various Participants – Roche
We had shocking weather on the day of our event. In some ways I think it added a little to the FUN. Everyone seemed to have a great time on our Scavenger Hunt and enjoyed the tasks set. It was talked about a lot after and still probably is being talked about!! I thought the team coordinating the event were well prepared and organized, friendly and helpful. We were a very large group and I think it was all done well. I am sure we will utilize this service again. It was a great way to start the year on a positive note and we all got to mix with different staff that we perhaps don’t ever get to see on a daily/weekly basis. It served the purpose we were hoping for. We have recommended to others and will continue to do so. Thanks to all involved. Natalie
Natalie Ranford – Manager Corporate Services – Success Primary School
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.
Nick Butterworth – Internal Communications Officer – Water Corporation
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!
Jamie Adair – Principal – Tuart Forest Primary School
The students all participated and were engaged in the activities within our Survivor. The activities were varied and challenging and allowed for them to work together as a team. The coordination of the event was fantastic. We were provided with an alternative activity in case we were unable to find the space required for one of the planned challenges and everything ran smoothly on the day. The facilitator was fantastic as he made sure that the momentum kept going throughout the day, removing any chance of misbehaviour or distraction.Thank you for the great event 🙂
Matt Potts – Media Teacher / Associate Dean of VET – Comet Bay College
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.
Shelley Campbell – Precedent
All staff were really happy with the Treasure Hunt. It’s always hard to please everyone but everyone had a great day. It was great that although we are all in our own teams we are close by to all the other teams as well to give the opportunity for bonding with everyone. From the first point of contact everything was fantastic. Prompt replies for everything and we needed to make a few changes nothing at all was a hassle and everything done so quickly. Communication was easy. Your prices are very competitive. I contacted another company that does the same thing that I’ve used before with another company and your prices are cheaper. I must say I was a little worried that maybe it wouldn’t be as good but it was exactly the same and you guys fitted our budget. The video and photos are awesome too.
Kerry Robson – Management Reporting & Administration – The Apprenticeship Community
Our staff were very happy with the program with very positive feedback and would like to participate again. Co-ordination of the program was of very high standard. Thank you once again for providing the program this was a very positive step in the right direction for our staff who are sometimes reluctant to participate in Team building. On behalf of the staff we would like to say a big thank you and we will definately be in touch for future programs.
Sonia Martin- Goolburri Aboriginal Health Advancement
They loved it. I have had great feedback from everyone. The co-ordination and facilitation was perfect again. It was stress free from my end. This is the second time I have used your services and will absolutely use you next year too. I think Minute to Win it as suggested by Darren is a good activity for our team next time. THANK YOU. Yes, capital letters is shouting, a very big Thank you. I really do appreciate how easy you make this for me.
Sonia Martin – Goolburri Aboriginal Health Advancement
Our team thoroughly enjoyed the Survivor program. Interactions, competitiveness, collaboration and team work were all on display. It also presented a great understanding of peoples strengths and weaknesses. Darren was great, engaging and involved, kept the motivation positive. Kept the day interesting, had the right amount of breaks between events. Keep up the great work.
Shaun Edmondson – Logistics Superintendant CM – BHP Billiton
The Treasure Hunt activity was a lot of fun, it was really inclusive and it highlighted different strengths and abilities of all the team members. Rachel was enthusiastic and professional and did a great job encouraging everyone and providing hints when we got stuck! Thank you for a memorable team building session. The engraved medals are a really nice personal touch and memento for the winning team.
Lisa Stottelaar – BHP Billiton
We received some very positive feedback from staff. The Scavenger Hunt was something completely different to what we have done as a staff previously. The team building aspect was particularly enjoyed by everyone and interacting will staff that they would not normally interact with on a daily basis. Again, staff commented that the tasks set and overall co-ordination was excellent. Thank you for a great day. It was fun as well as challenging.
Karen Meleca – Business Manager – St Columba’s School
Everyone enjoyed our Win it in a Minute program and got involved in the game! Friendly competition! Darren was fantastic! He really engaged the staff, participated in the event and seemed to enjoy being part of the program with our staff. He has everything set up ready for our staff to begin the program and was well organized! I have had two involvements now with Total Team Building and on both occasions communication was thorough and well organized as were the programs! The winners’ medallions were a brilliant and personal touch with our school name and program engraved on it! These were really well received by staff – and I might add – worn proudly around the school the next day!
Also the practice time was well utilised!!
Jayne Murray – Principal – Bramfield Park Primary School
Over all the feedback regarding our Treasure Hunt was very positive with staff commenting that it is the best Team Building Day they have experienced. Darren was very organized, positive and was able to link the activity to the learning extremely well. He did a great job keeping us on task and on time in a very relaxed way. Thank you for a great day.
Debbie Easther – Clinical Co-ordinator – South West Mental Health Service
Our Treasure Hunt consisted of fantastic games that really got you thinking and using team collaboration to succeed. The process was fantastic from start to end everything was pre-planned and on the day everything was ready to go at the start of each game.
A HUGE thank you for a wonderful day and I look forward to the next one.
Rebekka Scroop – BHP Billiton
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.
Leigh Olver – Head of Primary School – International School of WA
I just want to pass on our thanks, Darren & the team are so energetic, passionate, professional and awesome at what they do. The event was so well organised and executed and the briefing was delivered perfectly! The team’s feedback about our Scavenger Hunt was sensational – thank you so much!! Absolutely awesome – overall feedback was very positive – it was a great team building exercise! Faultless – from first contact with you right through to the winners presentation everything was easy and delivered well! Thank you so much for making this event so fun & easy for me as the coordinator!
Belinda Macpherson – Team Assistant – Business Banking WA – Bankwest
I had several staff thank me for arranging our Treasure Hunt at the end of the day. The activities were fun and catered for the physical and not so physical amongst us. I personally had a ball. The arrangements by Katie via email was fantastic and nothing – including last minute changes were too hard. On the day Darren rolled up and did his thing – independent to any chaos or other happenings around the school. I had to do very little but point in the right direction. I would just like to thank you again for the coordination, energy and the incredible people skills you have. We have now had you run whole school and teacher events very successfully.
Beth Kerry – Associate Principal – Upper Swan Primary School
We really enjoyed the bowls and by then it was warmer and nice and sunny too. Good facilities, shade for the baby and I could even get a coffee! It was fun, relaxed and good for morale at a time when we needed a lift. It was a fun way for improving team spirit. A practice of how to divide work based on team member abilities to achieve the goal more effectively and experiencing a nice feeling of achievement as a part of a team. Everything we needed was there. It was well prepared and the timing was spot on. Darren did a good job. Darren was organized, personable and coordinated the activities very well. It was efficient and well-organized. Loved the contents of the Treasure Chest, we are all partial to choccies!
Amy Cowdell – Department of Water
Feedback from both workshops run by Total Team Building were fun, achieved our requested outcomes and was delivered professionally. Their facilitation on the day exceeded expectations and was a well-run event. Thank you for the service provided, we will certainly refer you onto other organisations. Thank you and well done.
Graham Sharpe – Training & Quality Coordinator – Department of Sport & Recreation
A big thank you to you and Darren for a really enjoyable day. I can honestly say that we thoroughly enjoyed the experience and would absolutely recommend you to others. It was pitched at the right level and engaged our ‘highly competitive’ group. The co-ordination both prior to the event, and on the day was excellent. Katie was prompt and detailed with her email replies, while Darren was engaging, organised and entertaining on the day of the event. Just one last big thank you to you and Darren!
Luke Diepeveen – Bucks Day – Treasure Hunt
The activities were outside the comfort zone but doable. It was engaging and enjoyable. There were a lot of laughs and helped break the tension from the agenda of the workshop! Darren was fantastic. He was articulate and friendly. He was excellent. I was personally quite impressed with general responsiveness – right from sending the brochure, organizing a quote, visiting the place and accommodating the change in timings. You guys are a fantastic bunch and we hope to get you on board for the next one too!
Priyanka Shivran – Freight Lines Group
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.
Meredith Blais – Water Corporation
Initially the team were a little skeptical and insisted they weren’t going to take it very seriously but once the bandanas were on things got much much more serious! The facilitators were very good at holding our attention and instructions were clear. We didn’t feel rushed for time and despite the competitive atmosphere amongst the teams, it was actually a very relaxed day.
The coordination with the office gave me piece of mind that everyone was going to be exactly where they needed to be on the day but having mobile numbers just in case was a relief (particularly for our caterer who got lost, – a big thank you to Darren for helping her find the right spot). Thanks again for a great day.
Vicky Sheridan – XL Catlin
Our Win it in a Minute was excellent. It was short, sharp, varied and challenging. It was interesting, fun and participative for all there. The activities suited all and were well organized. There was an appropriate level of detail about the requirement in each event, the sequencing of events and sufficient time allocated to each. The event was well organised and I liked the video instructions. For what was required for the HR Team on the day – it was a perfect fit. Team Building was awesome – Darren was great, energetic and everything was really well organised.
Jessica de Garis – Snr Admin Assistant HR – Chevron Australia Pty Ltd
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.
Doug Mcintyre – General Manager – Oil & Gas – Monadelphous
When we originally told staff we were doing bare foot bowls they were not very excited to be honest, but on the day the competitive streak came out and everyone commented on how great it was. To the point we would continue this activity next year. Nicole and TTB were fantastic and made the day extremely relaxed, organised and fun. It was nice not having to worry about a thing and just enjoy the event. See you next year!
Jasmin Hazelton – Marketing & Lending Manager – D & D Property Group
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.
Sam Lockett – South32
Our Treasure Hunt was an excellent event. It was well presented and was ideal for the needs of my staff – a very clever combination of activities. We were fortunate to have picked an excellent venue as well. Darren’s call was reassuring before the actual day. We were impressed with Darren’s style – a good balance between business-like and laid back. Got the job done without dominating the event. We will definitely use you guys again. Loved the ‘loot’ and the medals. Great touch.
David Berry – Campus Director – Taylors College Perth
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!
Loren Nepe – WA College of Agriculture Harvey
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.
Shell Away Day
“The Vault” team building activity was well facilitated and fun! Lots of interesting puzzles for the team – got us thinking and more importantly, got us to know one another a bit better as well! It was very well facilitated and coordinated on the day. The facilitator was excellent to balance out the natural tension between ‘managing the session to a schedule’ (timing) and achieving the objectives of ‘team building and having fun’ (quality). The facilitator was able to do both successfully. Thanks for your support and looking forward to working with your organization again in the future. Also great that you have invested in producing a really nice looking and quality trophy at the end… makes a big difference as part of remembering the experience.
Robert Baker – Woodside Energy Ltd
The Go 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!!!
Graeme Liddle – Production Manager WA – Viridian New World Glass
The Scavenger Hunt was a lot of fun and well planned. Everyone had an awesome time and haven’t stopped talking about it. The route that was mapped out for us really made us discover Perth and everyone worked well as a team to find the landmarks and items that needed to be collected. It brought some people out of their comfort zone by doing the tasks that were given to us. The planning was well taken care of by Total Team Building. Katie was very patient and helpful especially as there were many changes and lots of ‘waiting periods’ for me to get back to her with information. Any questions I had were answered quickly. Darren, who coordinated the event on the day, was friendly and very professional. A lot of our staff said he was very pleasant and chatty. I was also pleasantly surprised to get the photo links sent to us so quickly as well! Thank you to Katie and Darren for organizing such a fun and energetic event for our Company. It was a great experience and we would definitely recommend your company to others.
Linzy Lopez – Kaefer Integrated Systems
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!
Rene Holtzhausen – Schweppes
Our Let’s Get Cooking event was a great success and whilst not all participants were happy to have to spend an afternoon cooking, it wasn’t too long before they realized it was more fun than hard work.
The coordination was great – very flexible to meet our needs. Facilitation was key to this being a successful event. You did a great job of engaging everyone, your quit wit made the afternoon very funny.
Well done! Thank you very much for a fun filled event that was very easy and stress-free for me to organize. The photo collage was a lovely surprise and great reminder of the day. Once again – thank you
Jodie Cranfield – Transfield Services
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
Emma Kemp – BHP Billiton
Our Raw Canvas activity was fantastic. All the staff provided excellent feedback on the activity and the way it was presented. Darren and Nicole were great. Friendly and approachable. They were very efficient in the setting up and tiding up at the completion of the activity and offering suggestions to the staff.
Thanks for a wonderful experience. Will keep you in mind for next years activity.
Jennifer Hughes – Training, Development & Events Officer – Arafmi WA
The Go Race was amazing, all the games and activities were not only fun but they also tested and improved our team work skills. From the very beginning to the very end this experience has been so well organized. I liaised with Katie and Darren and always had a reply within 24 hours. Darren and Nicole were well organized on the day and everything went so smoothly, you made my job so easy! Darren and Nicole were great, they made the afternoon so enjoyable and fun, we look forward to holding another event with Total Team Building in the future. I also received the goodies in the mail yesterday – thanks so very much, we will be adding the photos into our next Staff Newsletter. I will also be spending big at Timezone with our tickets! Thank you!
Kelsi Thompson – Administration Officer – Play & Learn
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!
Kristy Pendlebury – Gutter-Vac
Our group thought that our Let’s Get Cooking program was great and was a really fun way to interact with one another than their usual activities as they were creating something together. I thought it was so well done and the patience of all of your staff was amazing. We even had staff compliment all your staff on Monday saying they were so nice and accommodating. Our staff are normally very picky with their activities and even though the venue was very different to what they normally have, they stated it was the best fun they have had in a long time.
Michelle Hunter – Client Service Consultant – ShineWing Australia
Our program was well organised, entertaining and also great fun. It was evident on the afternoon and discussions from the participants following that everyone really enjoyed themselves while also being very engaged in the activities. There was a lot of great discussion at dinner that evening about the afternoon so it certainly resonated with the group. Having only been given short notice to pull this together TTB excelled with all the activities, they were fun and engaging. Katie did a brilliant job on the afternoon to have everyone involved and being flexible with the schedule. It was also great that we were able to play a key role in helping to add elements of the session, so a big thank you to TTB for their patience in this element. We look forward to engaging TTB for any subsequent events that we may have. Thanks again and appreciate your support and patience in getting this pulled together with short notice.
Derek Cleven – WA Parts Sales & Service Representative – Caterpillar of Australia Pty Ltd
We were uncertain at first having never played lawn bowls before, but the facilitator very quickly got everyone involved and at ease, and the light hearted competition was enjoyed by all. The venue was also very accommodating. It would’ve taken a lot of patience from the facilitator, which was much appreciated, but the way the flow of the event was coordinated, everyone was kept engaged. It was a fun afternoon
Fiona Ballantyne – Personal Assistant – Doric
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!
Emma May – Department for Child Protection and Family Support
Great program! The morning team building games were great fun, the bike build was fun and so rewarding to hear from our chosen charity. The afternoon scavenger hunt was also a great team challenge. Overall a fantastic day, very well facilitated by Total Team Building. The facilitators were fantastic, very personable, explained everything well and made for an exciting vibe. Thank you for making our annual team building day such a great success. Everyone bonded as team and really enjoyed the day. You guys made the planning process so easy for a busy office manager. Would highly recommend you to other businesses for their team building needs.
Rhian Eagle – Office Manager – Bentleys (WA) Pty Ltd
Our Treasure Hunt event exceeded everyone’s expectations and got everyone more involved, competitive and physical than they expected. It was a fantastic day. The program was perfectly organized and prepared for us, they went above and beyond what was required and made the organizing on our end a breeze. The facilitation by Nicole was fantastic. She had great communication skills with everyone and boosted our competitiveness between teams and gave us little hints along the way that got us to work better together. Thank you so much for putting together such a great day! We have been talking about it all week in the office and can see the stronger bonds formed between colleagues. We will suggest you to everyone looking for a good idea for a work event. Thank you again RSM Bird Cameron Bunbury.
Michelle Connell – RSM Bird Cameron
Our team had a really fun day on our Scavenger Hunt. There was a wide variety of activities to participate in and we enjoyed the checkpoint tasks too because it kept us on track, we could see the other teams and it made the 3 hours fly by. I loved how some of the tasks were specific to our hen’s & buck’s theme – it gave us some good laughs and good photos which I’m sure Cuong & Elaine will keep forever.
I have only great things to say about Total Team Building. Katie was a pleasure to deal with from the start and even though I had alot of questions, she was always willing to answer them and she was very prompt in her responses. She was always happy to provide suggestions which helped alot as I have never participated in anything like this before so I wasn’t sure how things usually run.
Darren was a great facilitator on the day. He was professional, clear to understand and accommodating to our group when we wanted to select our teams even though we were running a little bit behind time. He was also great at having a chat to everyone.
I’ve had alot of positive feedback from the whole group about the Scavenger Hunt. Everyone had a great time and it appealed to both the guys and girls so it was a great activity to do together. I’d like to thank you both, Katie & Darren, for organising the day, making everything so easy for us and I would definitely recommend you guys to others. Thank you again for the work you both put in and for making it a memorable day for everyone 🙂
Jessica Lim – Hens & Bucks Day – Scavenger Hunt
Our Treasure Hunt consisted of good, fun activities both skills based and brain based. The timing of the program was really good and finished when planned. The facilitators made the activities fun, they were well organised and preparations were made before we arrived. The prizes in the chest were also appropriate for our target audience Thanks again!
Alex Yerbury – Installation Engineer – Technip Oceania Pty Ltd
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!
Tina Garkinis – National Learning and Development Advisor – Fulton Hogan Pty Ltd
Our Treasure Hunt was excellent. Exceeded my expectations. The feedback from the participants was very positive and from my observations as a non-participant I was very impressed with the content and professionalism. The facilitation and co-ordination was faultless. I didn’t have to worry about anything (that meant a lot to me). Darren and Nicole were great. I would love to use you again when I get the opportunity.
Victoria Tice – Human Resources Officer – Rio Tinto
Our team competed in the ‘Win it in a Minute’ event and had an absolute blast! There was a great range of games which were fun and engaging and appropriate for the different abilities in the room. The day ran very smoothly and required little effort on our end as everything was provided by Total Team Building. Darren’s facilitation was exceptional! Darren maintained a positive atmosphere the entire afternoon and not only did he explain the exercises clearly but was extremely helpful when needed. Darren was also extremely organized and brought his own projector which we ended up using. We loved all the personal touches including the colour coded wrist bands, engraved medals and video of the photos taken on the day. Keep up the great work!
Gemma Whyte – Events Co-ordinator – Chevron Australia Pty Ltd
We received very positive feedback about our Treasure Hunt program. The outdoor part of it worked well. The facilitation and co-ordination was excellent. We hope we can work with you again in the future. Thanks again.
Shane Buckley – General Manager South Australia – AWH Pty Ltd
The activities in our Go Race were varied and made us use our brains, more than we do at work! The race was really well organised and catered to all abilities. I had good feedback about the race and how well it was organised and we would definitely do something like this again. Thanks again for a great afternoon. My team had more fun than they expected, and said they would like to do it again!
Jo-Ann Denney – Contracts Administration Assistant – Inpex
Good afternoon Katie,
Wow….! What can I say about our absolutely excellent day yesterday? All staff members who attended have all been ‘glowing’ in their praise for the fabulous time they all had. Darren and his team were outstanding, very friendly and ensured that we all had a great experience. I can’t thank you and them enough for your professionalism and the entire experience when dealing with Total Team Building, it has been seamless. I would have no hesitation in recommending your company to any business or school. I do hope that we will be able to engage your company sometime in the future to facilitate yet another wonderful day. Thank you once again.
Tricia Dean – Balga Senior High School
Our Scavenger Hunt was fun, engaging and encouraged a bit of team collaboration! Darren was fantastic. Thank you very much for organising this event for us, we look forward to using you again.
Amanda Johnston – Area Manager – WA South – British American Tobacco Australia
Everyone loved our Win it in a Minute. I kept it a secret and when they found out on the day the staff were a bit surprised but every single person had a go and had a ball. The co-ordination was great. The day was run really well. It was really nice that I didn’t have to lift a finger at any time. It was just a really cool day. Thanks
Rebecca Palumbo – Operations Manager – Wheatbelt NRM
The Go Race event that we participated in was fantastic. It was an event where all of us were able to participate. It was definitely the team building event that we were after. The video is such a great take-away of the event. The co-ordination was fantastic. From our side, we did not have to do much in terms of logistics. Once we knew our start and end locations, everything was organised from there, which made it very convenient. Facilitation of the day was faultless. On behalf of RSM Bird Cameron – Audit Division, we would like to say a huge thank you to Katie, Darren and Nicole for holding such a great event. The whole day was challenging and it was such a great team building event where we were able to get to know other people in the office. We would definitely consider Total Team Building for another work function!
Amanda Ong – Assistant Manager – Assurance and Advisory Services – RSM Bird Cameron
Everyone had a blast during our Amazing Cake Off and thoroughly enjoyed the day! It was like a crazy Master Chef competition and everyone got really into it. There was excellent communication and coordination by TTB leading up to the day and on the day itself. Darren was very organised and helpful and made the day very enjoyable…although we’re not sure about his judging skills!
Stephanie Hadassin – Training Co-ordinator – ATI-Mirage
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.
Veronica Ragusa – Contracts Administrator – Toll Energy
Hi Darren and Katie. Thanks for organizing such a brilliant day for our swimmers who all really enjoyed all the activities. Katie from the first phone call I knew you were going to do a great job and Darren you were terrific with our swimmers and modified the games only slightly to suit our needs which was great. Loved it all. Both programs were well planned and all activities well suited to our group and to the time we had available for each activity. Darren was always happy and managed the group brilliantly. The activities were much better than the activities we could have done on site but the resident program options were unavailable to us due to lack of staffing at the time. All things happen for a reason and it was so we could find Total Team Building and the fun things you offered. You even had the medals engraved with our club name!! great attention to detail.
Jan Saunders – Superfins WA
Our Treasure Hunt program was great, challenging and fun, It was also very well co-ordinated. We had very positive feedback from all the participants. Darren did a great job facilitating the program
Noha El Rashidi – Woodside Energy Ltd
Our team decided to try our hand at Barefoot Bowling. We attended the Dalkeith/Nedlands bowling club which was a lovely venue with stunning views. Beth from TTB met us there and we were given instructions on how to play the game by Barry from the club. Beth organized us into teams and very quickly had us all trying our hands at what turned out to be, a sport with a high degree of skill required. We all had great fun trying to master the sport and there were some surprising stars that emerged. Everyone participated with a great deal of enthusiasm and quite a lot of laughter. It was agreed that we all thought it an excellent team building exercise and a lot of fun. I found the co-ordination of the event to be extremely professional and very friendly. Beth was delightful and did a great job of keeping the ‘ball rolling’ whilst ensuring everyone had the opportunity to shine. She was very friendly and effective at keeping everyone on track.
Lesley Thornton – School of Occupational Therapy & Social Work
It was great that our Scavenger Hunt activities had been designed specifically for the zoo using particular animals and locations. The tasks really got the team members working closely together and you could see they had great fun whilst at it! It was very well organized and coordinated. Thank you!
Sophie Grimshaw – WA Business Development & Contracts – Boom Logistics
Everyone in the team enjoyed the Treasure Hunt and thought the activities were clever. It was a good mix of analytical and physical activities. The co-ordination was sufficient and well organised. Our team loved every part of the treasure hunt.
Angeline Tang – BHP Billiton
I have had very good feedback from all who attended our Charity Win it in a Minute. They have said it that was easily the best one of those I’ve been to. Everything ran smoothly. Nothing was an issue. I heard back from Total Team Building in good time. A range of options were presented for the day. They were able to change things to suit the size of the team and in the times we had. The whole process was flawless. The guys who turned up on the day came in on time and set everything up seamlessly. They were very friendly and made the day very enjoyable with their bubbly attitudes. The whole team were very impressed by the day. I was hesitant that everybody would get in and participate, but everyone got involved and had a ball. The video collage of the day was a very nice touch and also the medals for the winning team. I will definitely use Total Team Building again!
Nicolle Byrne – Administration Assistant – CBH Group
Everyone had a great time on our Treasure Hunt and were very happy even though they had to come in on the weekend. Darren was great, very happy. He got on well with everyone, was clear with direction and had a good laugh. Everything was better than we thought. We had a great day, thank you so much you have a great service!
Lisa Evangelista – Senior Recruitment Specialist – Adecco
Your team were outstanding! A great level of professionalism, engagement and interaction with the team and within 5 minutes we were amazed at how they all jumped in and were a part of what was going on. Our theme for the day was ‘Team”, Darren and his team demonstrated both by their actions and the events they put on exactly what we wanted, working together, sharing a common goal and striving to achieve is what we can do and in fact did on the day! I will be using you and the team again for other events without question, superbly done, my thanks and ongoing support and recommendations to anyone who asks will be passed on! Really great job guys!
Grant Butler – Business Manager – Rentokil Initial
We had so much fun on Friday. I don’t think any of us stopped laughing all day! Just what we needed from a day out of the office. Darren & Nicole were fantastic – great coordination of a rowdy team, and seemed to enjoy themselves too in the process. The day was everything we wanted & more – couldn’t be happier with how it went. You were easy to deal with & pulled it together at quite late notice, with no issues. Thank you! We will be back next time we run a team building activity, for sure!
Teri O’Toole – Senior Manager – Migration Support Programs (WA) – Red Cross
The Scavenger Hunt was enjoyed by all involved – was great fun. The coordination of the event was made very easy by TTB. Our event was customized to a particular location and end-point and Darren’s hard work on the day ensured that things ran smoothly. Many thanks!
Lewis Mounsher – Graduate Geologist – Woodside Energy Ltd
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
Vanessa Eaddy – Corporate Services – Q Super
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…)
Luke Smith – Technip Oceania Pty Ltd
Thanks so much Katie and Darren. We all loved the scavenger hunt you organised for our team building day – well tailored to our time frames and all the little extra things considered like the personalised winner’s medals and the photo slideshow of our event sent to us the same evening! Good job guys!! As the organiser of our event today, I was extremely impressed with the professional co-ordination in the lead up to our team building day. I felt very confident that our team building exercise would run smoothly with the consistent, friendly communication and attention to detail provided by both Katie and Darren over the past few weeks.
The facilitation of our event today didn’t disappoint!! We were all thoroughly impressed with the way Darren led the group. He provided everything we required for our scavenger hunt and individual teams. Darren communicated clearly and was very organised, professional and kept us all to time. At every stage our needs were anticipated, met and our expectations exceeded. Being in an industry where we place a big emphasis on customer service, it was wonderful to work with another company who delivers exceptional service and goes above and beyond to look after their clients. Honestly, I could not fault anything about our experience with TTB. Katie and Darren were great to deal with we would not hesitate to recommend them or use TTB again in the future. A huge THANKS for making our day successful, fun and memorable 🙂
Cath Foote – Nervana Chiropractic
We all had an amazing time and lots of laughs at our Barefoot Bowls event…. We are still talking about it!!! Total Team Building made everything so easy – pre, during and post event. Darren was great and made the afternoon a lot of fun. I will go straight to Total Team Building next time we are looking for a team event. The communication and organisation was great and made it easy for me to coordinate.
Nicola Powell – Human Resources Manager – O-I Adelaide
We all really enjoyed the Scavenger Hunt! It was a lot of fun, lots of activities, lots of variety so we could decide on our strengths as a team and it was good exercise too so after lunch we all crashed! We all really enjoyed the hunt. Darren was approachable and easy to talk to, the program was simple to follow and it seemed very organized with the colour on the cameras, the bags etc. You were always very punctual with your emails and when we were told we were to get a phone call around a certain time, it actually happened! Was very well organized and executed.
Melanie Goodwin – Client Services Co-ordinator – CapitalQ Chartered Accountants
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.
David Jereb – Occupational Therapist – Move About Therapy
Everyone was a little unsure what to expect about the day… but by the end of it everyone was commenting that they had a great day and it was one of the best Christmas Party’s we have had. Awesome job by the facilitators, very professional & helpful with all the tasks. We had a great time.
Michalle Atkins – Auction Co-ordinator – Richie Bros Auctioneers
The scavenger Hunt was a great team building event. It was an interactive and fun event. We really enjoyed running around the city and being creative to collect the required items. The event was well organized and facilitated. The facilitators were fairly flexible which made it fun as people tend to get pretty competitive! Thanks for a great time!
June Foote – Human Resources & Training Officer – Gumala Aboriginal Corporation
Our Barefoot Bowls program was great fun. Most of us have played lawn bowls before, but it was good to have some organisation and structure to get us through our event. It was smooth and easy! Katie was very helpful in the planning stages (and very patient as we changed the date about four times) and Darren was a great help on the day, kept us on track and made sure we all got involved and knew which team was playing who. It was much easier having someone take charge so we could focus on having fun! Everything was handled well and they were great.
Rachel Linderholm – Campaign Manager – GESB
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.
Kim Luck – Manager Mail & Print Services – University of The Sunshine Coast
Everyone totally enjoyed the afternoon participating in our Scavenger Hunt. Darren was great! He was well prepared and informative. Thank you very much for a great afternoon. I will definitely be recommending you to friends and family!
Liz Modica – Office & Accounts Administrator – Eco Environmental
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.
Alex Argenti – Regional Wealth Executive – NAB – Financial Planning
Just wanted to drop you all a note to say how pleased we were with Sunday’s event. It’s a bit different to anything we have done before and it’s hard to know how things are going to turn out especially when organising from interstate. Every aspect of the day was brilliant, and the storm avoiding us was a bonus!
The boat trip over was professionally run and smooth sailing. Good facilities on board and helpful friendly staff, thanks to Gus and the crew. Arriving at the island, Jason and his crew looked very professional all lined up on the beach with orange cones laid out already. You guys were brilliant, you had everyone’s attention and had them all where they needed to be. The games were great fun and everyone got into the spirit of the challenges largely due to your enthusiasm and skills at keeping everyone organised. Very well done Jason.
On the island all the staff were welcoming, friendly and fun. Dinner was run very smoothly and was absolutely delicious – well done chef! And the location was absolutely stunning. Thankyou for getting dinner on a bit earlier when I asked too – that was much appreciated. Our ride back involved a bit of daggy disco dancing and a lot of yummy profiteroles – a perfect end to the day 🙂
I hope I haven’t missed anything! Totally recommend you all to other businesses looking for a team event day. Thanks for making me look like a great organiser!
Donna Jones – Beaumont Tiles
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!
Sofia Josefsson – Planisphere
Our “Health on the Run” was excellent, Great exercise and was at a level everyone could participate at. Total Team Buildings co-ordination and facilitation was fantastic. They had great interaction with the team and were entertaining. It was smooth running from the day we started planning the event. Total Team Building were helpful and organized and had everything planned to a T, including having a back-up plan if the weather wasn’t to go our way. I would highly recommend to anyone who is looking for a fun, different way to plan a team building event that incorporates a little bit of friendly competition.
Kim McCarroll – IDEXX Laboritories Pty Ltd
Our Rat Race 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!
Amy O’Rourke – Executive Secretary – LWP Property Group
Our Go Race program was very professionally managed and encouraged everyone to participate which is what we had hoped for. The facilitation was very neat and professional – All the instructions were clear and there was no confusion whatsoever. Well done! You guys did a great job.
Rahul Bajaj – Consultant – Churchill Consulting
Our Win it in a Minute was very well managed, kept everyones attention for 3 hours and was surprisingly competitive! It was very well organized.. surprisingly well organized in fact. Jason & Kate kept such a large group entertained for such a long time. Very engaging. Huge thanks for making our day such a success! We are looking forward to the bike build at the end of the year !!
Nick Hurst – Essendon Football Club
Thanks for making our Barefoot Bowls event enjoyable to all. The team came together and worked as a unit. Thank you also for the video. The feedback from the team was positive and they had a great time. Would like to thank Darren, he was well prepared and worked in a pace that suited us. He can be recommended any time.
Eric Frances – Fuji Xerox
Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the activities in our Win it in a Minute program. Everyone felt that it was very well organised and run in a professional manner.
Kerri Siedofsky – Partnership Manager – Bankwest
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.
Ella Bond – Administration Assistant – Chevron
Everyone loved our “healthy” Rat Race. 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.
Fiona Bryant – IDEXX Laboratories Pty Ltd
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!
Dona Stidwill – Change Management Consultant – Western Power
Thank you so much for last week. The “Amazing Cake Off” program was excellent! It was really well put together, planned out and so much fun. Fantastic! The program was so well organised and very slick. We had an amazing day. Dealing with Jason, Darren and Katie was seamless and they made everything so easy. I honestly couldn’t’ fault anything and hope to deal with you again.
Toni Rowland – L & D Consultant – SA Power Networks
The team absolutely loved the event and the mix of challenges provided for the Charity Treasure Hunt. This definitely made use of everyone’s strengths, worked on communication, was a lot of fun, linked to our values and therefore met all the objectives I hoped to achieve. The photos clearly confirm how much fun everyone had. The co-ordination and facilitation was xxcellent – very happy indeed and could not have asked for more. Thank you so much – our team absolutely loved the event and got a lot out of it. To be able to contribute to a charity is truly the icing on the cake and touched the hearts of everyone – which aligns to our culture and more so what our team is all about. Many thanks – I had set a high bar in 2012 with another organisation as you are aware and trying to top that for 2013 was a personal challenge for me. I am thrilled that Teresa recommended Total Team Building as this was an excellent event and it certainly exceeded all my expectations. Thank you Katie and Darren.
Jennie Milne – General Manager – Shared Services – RAC
Our Win it in a Minute was a brilliant night, lots of fun! Something different for a change. Great! Although we had dramas of no power and bogged participants, Darren stayed calm and laid back and made me feel less stressed with it all. Thanks Katie and Darren, great dealing with you from beginning to end. I would definitely recommend you, and look forward to more events in the future!
Jacqui O’Connor – Rowson O’Connor Hair
Our Rat Race 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.
Helen Ibbotson – Cornerstone Partners
Everybody thoroughly enjoyed themselves during their Win it in a Minute. It worked out great having the team activity onsite as it didn’t allow people “to creep off” or “return to work” which often happens when you move an activity offsite. The program was professionally run, and it was nice to see them enjoying what they were running.
Jenelle Lawrence – Senior Commercial Analyst – Rio Tinto Iron Ore
The team at Richgro truly enjoyed the Amazing Cake Off experience. It had great chemistry of team building, planning, creativity & fun. Both thumbs up from the team at Richgro! The co-ordination & facilitation was perfect! Thank you Darren & Katie! It was a real joy & I have a lot more respect now for bakers like my friends & family members who bakes cakes for special occasions.
Nathan Durham – National Marketing Manager – Richgro Garden Products
Firstly a huge thank you to you both for all efforts on the lead up to yesterday and then Darren’s fantastic efforts yesterday. The afternoon was very organized and ran very smoothly.- Matt was also greatly impressed with your technology!! Coming to work this morning was a totally different atmosphere! Looking around the room yesterday everyone was involved, having a go and Darren warmed us all up really well. The balance of team activities and individual was a great balance and worked great! It was the perfect length also. All the staff here and have said yesterday was a great day and there have been no complaints! I owe a huge thanks to you both for being so patient and doing everything behind the scenes to deliver a great afternoon! I personally feel you went above and beyond what I expected and it made it very easy to work with you! So thank you again!! I would recommended you both to anyone!
Laura Clarke – – Member Services – The Pharmacy Guild of Australia – WA Branch
The Total Team Building staff on our Scavenger Hunt were very helpful and organised. The packs received were well thought out and the instructions both delivered written and orally were clear and concise. From a coordination point of view the entire event ran very smoothly.
Kay Williamson – Service Improvement Officer – Dept of Education – Personnel & Payroll Branch
Our Scavenger Hunt was fun & it was interesting to see how different personalities worked together and the different dynamics between people. Some teams planned well and others didn’t. It was a fun day and great to get out of the office and work with people in a different way. The facilitators were great, helpful, fantastic! They were also very encouraging they explained the event well and also helped out when we didn’t understand something. Thanks to yourselves and the team co-ordinators on the day! Everyone enjoyed themselves and got to know each other that little bit better. Bonds were made and an appreciation of what each person can bring to the team. Great to see budding leaders emerging! Thanks again!
Angela Lum – Management Accountant – Plunkett Group
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!!
Alison Robb – Human Resources Manager – Solar Turbines
Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves on the day of our Scavenger Hunt. It gave everyone an opportunity to get to work with their colleagues in a relaxed atmosphere and learn new things about the way they can work together. Although some participants were skeptical at first, everyone really enjoyed themselves. Total Team Building were incredibly helpful. Any questions that I had were answered promptly and thoroughly. The organisation on the day was outstanding Darren and Paul were very friendly and answered all questions we had with ease. Due to a late start Darren quickly made a small alteration to the program which allowed the day to run smoothly and efficiently. Thank you.
Jo Clarke – Contract Administrator – Baker Hughes
The day went very smoothly and the facilitators of our Go Race were great. Thank you very much to the facilitators for the day! It was a great day that was enjoyed by all staff who participated!
Deanna Forward – Office Manager – Defence Housing Australia
The Treasure Hunt Program met our needs very well. It had a good mix of activities that had us all interested. The organisation, explanation and facilitation was great. We all knew what we had to do and where we had to do it. It was a great afternoon from my perspective. Our intent was to bring the 4 school staffs together for the purpose of increased collegiality and cross school collaboration and I think that was certainly achieved.
Randal Hoft – Principal – Ashdale Primary School
Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the day. Great communications by Total Team Building. Everything was very well organized and run professionally. Thank you very much for a great day, we will surely be in contact for any team days in the future.
Joanne Roussy – Woodside Energy Pty Ltd
The team thought that the Treasure Hunt was challenging and well put together. Darren was an excellent facilitator and the event was well organized. The challenges were not too difficult to achieve and not too easy. We found them to be well balanced. We had a great time with Total Team Building and would recommend them to others for any Team Building events.
Carol Vernon – Superintendant Document Control – Citic Pacific Mining
Our Rat Race was lots of fun, a great afternoon. The program was very well organised. Thank you for a great afternoon everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves.
Belinda Lewis – Devro
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.
Nicole Nelson – Executive Manager Strategy & Operations – Bankwest
The team really enjoyed the event and are talking about the next time we do a team building event – so I think the event was a great result. Co-ordination of the event was very good. We appreciated the contact from Darren prior to the event advising he was bringing poncho’s for all. I think a couple of teams are lucky to have received some assistance with a puzzle on the day.
Thank you for organizing the event and hope to use you again in the future.
Mark McLean – Granherne
Everyone absolutely loved the Win it in a Minute! Great challenges, fun fun fun! There was nothing else that was talked about on Monday. The program and co-ordination was hassle free and smooth as a baby’s bottom. Thank you to Total Team Building and Chad for making this event one for the books!
Marisa Blake – Siemens
Our Win it in a Minute program was fast paced and upbeat. You could feel the energy in the room. There was the right balance of challenge/competitiveness and fun. The PowerPoint was professional and the music was a nice touch to the atmosphere.
There was timely, clear communication during the booking process and the program was well coordinated and professional on the day.
Jacinta Chamberlain – OE Compliance Assurance Advisor – Chevron Australia Pty Ltd
We all thought our Treasure Hunt was great and we each took something away from the exercises. Awesome! The co-ordination and facilitation was very well done guys. We will definitely use you again. Thank you.

Donna Edwards – Organisational Development Manager – Ignia
Myself and everyone thought the Win it in a Minute was fantastic. Most never even considered such an idea for a bday party but thoroughly enjoyed it. The co-ordination of the program was great! Good communication and Darren’s facilitation was superb. Great job guys. I’m looking forward to getting the photos and videos Darren took! I have also referenced someone else to Katie already for their special event.
Dave Lozinski – 40th Birthday Party
We did the Scavenger Hunt and everyone who participated absolutely loved it.
The co-ordination and facilitation on the day was great, we didn’t have to think about anything.
It was all looked after very well. I think you are doing a great job.
Jeni DeLacy-Turner – Forever Dance
Our program was an excellent way for the team to bond and get to know each other better. It ensured people had to work together and strategise. “The Chad” was great, he kept everyone on track and served it up to those who did not. We will be back for more!
Margaret Portelli – Executive Manager – Commonwealth Bank
Everyone had the best day and people are still telling me fantastic it was! The photos are hilarious too, thanks for the slideshow! The Scavenger Hunt was Fantastic!, Fun, engaging, active. A great way to get the office together. It could not have gone smoother! The whole day ran like clockwork. Thank you for a wonderful day, the way you run these events is a testament to you both.
Jessica Bath – Executive Assistant – Focus Minerals
Everyone loved it! Such a good day and GREAT team building. Many of our staff were working together for the first time and it was really great to see the photos when we came in on Monday. Hilarious and something we could share with out national colleagues. Many of the comments included ‘They did it just perfectly, just the right amount of direction without being bossy, that’s not easy to do’. I would like to say a particularly large thank you to you guys for making it all happen at such short notice without compromise to the program. It was such a lifesaver for me. I also didn’t have to do anything on the day, not even take photos, so it was really great. We are all recommending you! Thanks so much again and I hope you guys have a great xmas and new year! Look forward to working together in 2013!
Emma Simpson – Administration Manager – Marble Expert Recruitment
The feedback from the group was really positive. The great thing about the Scavenger Hunt was that it was outdoors so it was a nice change from the other team building activities that group has undertaken during the leadership program. Those who we have spoken to all said it was ‘fun’ which is exactly the type of team building activity we wanted. Thank you.
Sam Mallios – People & Culture Advisor -Programmed
Thank you for the team challenge last Friday. The staff thoroughly enjoyed the activity and only have positive things to say. The type of activity suited the audience from LIWA providing them a challenge in their teams without too much physical exertion. The venue, overall organization and delivery was also well managed to foster a positive experience.
Cameron Agnew – Executive Officer -Lung Institute of Western Australia
Everyone enjoyed the mix of brain teasers and activities. There was lots of positive feedback. Total Team Building did a fantastic job of coordinating the event and facilitating it on the day. Very friendly and organised! Thanks for organising a fun activity – we really enjoyed it.
Annie Young – PA to Managing Director – AST Australia
We loved our Treasure Hunt from beginning to end. Everything was very well organized and Darren, the facilitator, was very punctual and enthusiastic. Everything was excellent. Thank you very much. We would definitely call you back for our next team building activity in 2013 and we will recommend you to other people.
Erika Quintero – Administration Officer – MercyCare
Our Go Race was great. The co-ordination and facilitation from Total Team Building was excellent – very professional. Thanks a lot for organizing this for us – was nice to not have to worry about it all! It was a really enjoyable afternoon.
Gaye MacKenzie – Rangelands NRM WA
Great organizing, fun activities, good level of “assistance” provided when the total team brain capacity was unable to interpret their challenge/task, great fun all round.Well done, thorough and friendly, it seemed that everything ran smoothly and to plan. Thanks again I will happily recommend your services to others should the opportunity arise.
Volker Mischker – Program Manager – Rangelands NRM WA
Our Scavenger Hunt was a great success! Those who seemed somewhat skeptic about the program actually had a really great time. It was an excellent opportunity to build on team work and communication, in a fun and safe environment that all enjoyed. The communication and co-ordination from Total Team Building was excellent. Our facilitators; Katie and Luke were both very enthusiastic and allowed for smooth transitions between each of the destinations. Thank you for a great day.
Melyssa Spragg – Human Resources & Marketing Assistant – TSG Consulting

Our Sports Battle was good fun and brought our everyone’s competitive nature! It was well co-ordinated and facilitated, Chad was great and everyone had a good work out!
Ceris Kruger – Service Manager – PR King & Sons Pty Ltd
Our Scavenger Hunt was – Absolutely fantastic! It was something a little different from the usual hen day type of activities and was suited to all ages and abilities….so everyone could join in the day. The hunt was very well thought out and as far as I know all the teams found it easy to follow. The activities were fun and not too challenging, which was perfect. Katie is very friendly, approachable and great fun! She gave nothing but 100% customer service to me/us….during our emails before the day and also during the hunt, brilliant! Just a very big thank you for making Jess’ day so memorable. She commented that it was her fave part of the whole day that I had planned for her! A great day was had by all! I will definately be in touch again to book through Total Team Building in the future for similar events.
Tracey Barone – Hen’s Day
The program was fantastic! The teams are still talking about it this morning. It was definitely a fun, enjoyable team building event as it brought out the leaders and focused on working together and time management. It was very professional and organized and the facilitators were friendly too! Well done Darren, Carrie and Kate! Thanks for an awesome event. Truly memorable! The montage is fantastic!
Fiona Jones – Operations Coordinator – Dept of Education – Finance Services – Training Agencies
I would like to Thank you and Darren for organising the day, the team had absolutely a blast and it was real fun!! Lawn Bowls was a nice way of communicating and getting to know each other. We thought it was a good team building exercise that provided interaction with all team members. Instructions were clear and Darren who facilitated the event also gave helpful tips and advices on how to play the game. Everyone was able to interact and participate which allowed for a high level of engagement. Well done, good job. Keep it up.
Dominica Michael – BP
Thank you for running such a precision Go Race exercise. The program was well organised and the tasks were not as easy as they seem. There was a good choice of fun and using problem solving skills. The program was exceptionally well co-ordinated and the facilitators were both friendly and fair. Thank you for a fantastic day.
Poppy Mallon – Executive Assistant – Verve Energy
We all really enjoyed our “Win it in a Minute” program, we thought it was fantastic. Total Team Building were all very professional and helpful, and Darren was great everyone loved his music choice. The whole day was perfect, games were enjoyable and the length of time was perfect. Every one of our team really enjoyed it.
Rebecca O’Hara – Finance Assistant – Global Avenue
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.
Ben Ward – Contract Specialist – Woodside Energy
Everybody had a really great time on our Scavenger Hunt and they have all said that we should do the same thing next year! The coordination of the event was excellent, very well organised and a lot of fun! Darren was a great facilitator on the day!
Madison Nisbett – Office Administrator – Viking SeaTech
We had a wonderful afternoon at the lawn bowls!! Thank you very much, it was organised well, the food and facilities were great and it was just a fantastic afternoon. Everyone had fun.
Stephanie Tully – HR General Services Administrator – Saipem
Hi Katie & Darren I would like to thank you very much for the wonderful afternoon my team and I had on Friday. We all enjoyed the scavenger hunt thoroughly and had a lot of fun and a pile of laughs. For me, it highlighted some hidden talents throughout my team and certainly brought out the natural leadership skills from some surprising team members and most importantly, brought the team together. Rachel was fantastic with her bubbly, friendly approach, please pass on our thanks to her. I will certainly be recommending Total Team Building to the rest of our organisation for their team building events and I can’t wait for next year’s budget to be approved to start planning our next event. I can’t wait to see the photos.
Adele Collier – Document Control Services – Team Leader – Transfield Worley
I have received fantastic feedback. Quite a few in the group mentioned it was much better than they expected. A couple said they were dreading it, but ended up having the best day. Have received quite a few emails saying thanks for organizing the day and how great a time they had. Darren was awesome. Katie did a fabulous job coordinating, communication was excellent and very adaptable to customizing the program to suit Brookfield Multiplex. Thank you. Great day had by all.
Bonnie Mulholland – HR Advisor- Brookfield Multiplex
We had an absolute ball competing in the Rat Race, 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
Michelle Mitchell – Manager- Bounce OSHC
Our Win it in a Minute program was great fun! Good for all different abilities and age groups! The facililtation was spot on…. Darren was great. Another great session! Thanks so much guys
Rebecca Freeman – Sales, Training & Recruitment Manager – LJ Hooker
The Charity Treasure Hunt was a really good way to get us all working together in our teams. There was a good mix of ‘brains and brawn’ used to earn the coins and work out the clues – playing to each of the team members’ strengths. The event was very well coordinated and it ran very smoothly. Paul was a great facilitator, he was on the ball with everything and everyone thought the day was really good – a few people were actually surprised, due to the stigma usually associated with the ‘team building event’. We will definitely be using Total Teambuilding for our next big event. Thanks guys.
Sarah Howson – Personal Assistant – Infrastructure Design – Water Corporation
I thought our Treasure Hunt was well organised and run and thoroughly enjoyed the day. Luckily I was in the team who won the treasure so that made it even better. Communication beforehand was excellent and the coordination on the day was very well done by Darren and Carrie (and Katie behind the scenes). The games brought out the best in different people and made me appreciate that it takes a team to accomplish a project. Everyone has different skills that all contribute to the outcome. Some are better than others and everyone had a chance to shine.
Lesley Harrold – Project Support Officer – Corporate Services Directorate
Everyone thought it was great. We had so much fun. It brought out a competitive side in a lot of people I never thought existed. Was a wonderful way to break the ice between team mates that haven’t really had much to do with each other. It was brilliant not having to worry about anything on the day and also leading up to the event. It was all taken care of for me and absolutely nothing went wrong. It was wonderful. Thank you so much for making our team building event a success. We have not stopped talking about it since we got back. It was great fun.
Kelli Marshall – Disturbance Approvals Administrator
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.
Keryn Reid – Project Manager, Graffiti – WA Police
What can I say about our Scavenger Hunt – LOVED IT!!! It certainly brought to our attention areas we need to work on within the group! I loved Katie and Darren… helpful, organized and very easy to get along with – Would recommend all businesses to use Total Team Building!!! The day was set up perfectly, no problems at all! A big thank you for all your help, from the first phone call with Katie to the end of the team building event with Darren, both of you were professional, kind, patient and easy to get along with. This team building was so useful in identifying problems in our working relationships within our teams that we can now hopefully rectify a few problems. The crew are already talking about the next one!
Total Team Building’s Scavenger Hunt was such a great way to spend an afternoon, bringing our team together and creating a little healthy competition! We were looking for a way to engage our staff, and reenergize the moral half way through the year and this was the perfect activity! Katie and Darren couldn’t have been more helpful. We are already planning to book another day with TTB and are looking forward to it! Thank you for a great afternoon – we will be back!
Sam Burling – Brand Manager
We all had a great time on our Scavenger Hunt and enjoyed ducking and diving one another out there and trying to get the better over the other teams. I think it was great that we did not know which event will count how many points and that left you wondering and planning and having to make decisions to later see if they were the correct ones! We all also got to know the city better and each other. I will definitely keep this in mind for future events. We had a great time thanks.
Russel Botha – Administration Manager
The feedback from all participants was: Wonderful, so much fun, great to interact with others, meet new team members. We loved the content and the variety in the game shows – especially Blankety Blanks. Good Coordination aswell by Jason. Loved the overall event, lots of laughter, team building and communication, it tested everyone’s IQ!!
Trish Butterworth – Administration Manager
Thank you to Katie and Darren for organising our team activity on Thursday, we all had a really great time. It not only gave us the chance to get away from the office for a little while but also helped us bond as a team. It was a fun experience for our entire team and was very professional and organised. Thanks Katie and Darren, you did an excellent job!
Michell Harmalkar – Business Co-ordinator WA/SA/NT
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
Kristal Allen – Business Information Support Co-ordinator
Our Scavenger Hunt was excellent, good fun! Total Team Building were great, professional and always very prompt to any of my queries. On the day it ran excellent, even with our last minute time changes. Thank you very much, we would definitely look at using Total Team Building in the future.
Angela Craig – HR Co-ordinator
WOW. Everyone loved the Win it in a Minute program. There has been nothing but rave reviews. I dare say we will play some of the games again soon. Total Team Building’s co-ordination was exceptional. We are a very extraverted group and its never easy to keep everyone focused and following instructions. Darren did an outstanding job of keeping everyone interacting and working as a team. I would like to extend my sincere thanks for an unbelievable afternoon/evening. I couldn’t have asked for anything more. At short notice, within budget and time frame and in the comfort of our office. It was really exactly what we were looking for and more. Right from the initial phone conversation, Katie you were so helpful and reassuring through to Darren being on time, prepared and a fantastic host. You also took photos and a video AND we got personalized medallions! I will certainly be using you guys again soon and telling others. Thanks so much!
Emma Simpson – Administration Manager
Love the photos! The activity was very well received by the group and a nice break from the extensive PowerPoint presentations we had listened to during the morning. Everyone really enjoyed the activity and it created opportunities for us to break away from our usual roles and teams to engage with each other. Very well set up and organized – thanks for providing the service with such short notice!!
Aimee Nichevich – HES Advisor
I have nothing but positive feedback come back from those participating. One of my direct reports wanted to pull out as can lack confidence at times. I explained that I wanted her to take part as a HR activity – I got a text from her Friday night thanking me for pushing her to participate as she really enjoyed it (and on winning team!). I thought the facilitation and overall coordination was great.
Patrick de Haan – HR Manager
Really good day with a good mix of departments (People) in the teams which lead to greater interaction and getting to know people a whole lot better. Was interesting to see the really competitive people come out. Overall I really enjoyed it! Very good coordination by TTB … good use of the QR codes for the clues … and it was well coordinated and well run throughout the day. Both staff members were extremely positive and encouraging which was a plus when you get stuck on the Quoits. Overall really positive fun day that helped bring the entire WAFC team closer together.
Troy Kirkham – Manager Junior Football
Great way to spend a Friday afternoon with work mates having fun and a laugh. The competitiveness really came out. The organisation of it all was great.
Paul Lekias – Facilities Project Coordinator
I personally thought that the program was fantastic – different to what you would expect and it did test you ! – well your fitness for sure! I really enjoyed the day!
Stephanie Turner – Sponsorship Coordinator
The team loved the morning and everyone had a blast!
Kerri Maccini – UniSA
The Amazing Cake Off was very well delivered. The Total Team Building staff were very helpful prior to the event and throughout the event. The feedback I have received from the Corporate Services team is that it was very well run and that everyone was very helpful. Each team was provided with such a range of materials to work with. We were kept up to date with everything and were very well informed throughout the session. The room was very well set up with all the equipment needed and every element needed was covered. Each aspect of the exercise was thought out by the organizers and covered well, thank you for organizing and running such a successful event!!
Louise Bowling – CBH Group
Our Scavenger Hunt was absolutely awesome. The girls had a ball. It was really well organized and there was a huge variety of challenges that enabled all the girls to participate. Teresa was a great co-ordinator, she had the girls engaged and everything ran like clockwork. We all thoroughly enjoyed the morning and it was a great length for the activities. Thank you so much for a really well organized event, everyone had a great time and we would definitely recommend you to friends and family.
Hi Katie, we were all very impressed with Tuesday’s activities. It was well organised and run by Paul and June. The feedback from staff has been extremely positive and every one had a great day. The venue was fantastic and the staff at the bowling club were very helpful and welcoming. So thank you very much from everybody at Gladys.
Gemma Bosnjak – Gladys Newton School
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!
Hayley Bremner – Fortescue Metals Group
The program was physically challenging, hard work but great fun, brought the team together & created good camaraderie – Well Done!
Tanya Smerdon – BOC Limited
The team had a great day and enjoyed the variety of activities. It was evident from the laughter throughout the day and the smiles captured on camera that everyone really enjoyed themselves. One team member told me it was the best team building event ever.
Total Team Building was really easy to work with to plan the day. The boys did an excellent job facilitating the activities on the day. They were encouraging without being over-the-top in their enthusiasm.
I would definintely recommend the Sports Battle/Barefoot Bocce combination to other corporate teams. It was the perfect balance of healthy competition, fun and a chance to get outside and do some exercise.
Michelle Foote – Department of Finance
Everyone had an absolute ball!! It was a perfect day for a battle down at the beach.
Thanks Guys! Loved it!!
Nicole Bailey – Aveling Homes
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.
Cath Manning – Box Hill Secondary College
The program was great, challenging but fun and a great follow up to the leadership training done earlier in the day. Total Team Building did an excellent job of choosing the activities appropriate to the day. It was fantastic! I’ve had so much positive feedback about the event.
I look forward to working with Total Team Building in the future. Katie and Darren are excellent and the group of facilitators on the day were brilliant. Thanks again!
David Hunter – Penrhos College
The program was perfect. It was such a fun way to get everyone creating an idea and putting that idea into practice. The final films were hilarious and edited really well. The 2nd day was just as good. It was a last minute booking, however Jason facilitated it as if he’d had weeks to prepare and he definitely knew how to keep everyone under control! Ultimate Frisbee definitely brings out the competitive side in people! A huge thank you to Jason, especially for coming to the party on that 2nd day – you have no idea how much it meant to Rob and I. Clearly that’s why it’s worth using the experts when doing things like that!! I will be recommending your services to anyone else heading up that way in the future.
Erika Vikor – Parnell Corporate Services
The Team really enjoyed the experience… the timing was great and the co-ordination was exceptional. The event went off without a hitch. A good energy lift for the group and a great start to the new year. It was very well communicated, organized and executed.
Thank you… We will certainly consider Total Team Building for any team building events in the future.

Thank you so much for your support of our young carers event yesterday. We thought the program was brilliant. As a staff member, it was wonderful to be able to focus on just getting the participants there and know that everything else was arranged for the day.
I was very impressed with the communication prior to the day. Katie was easy to contact, open and very accommodating. All details were discussed and covered and I felt confident that the facilitator understood the needs of the group beforehand.
Thanks for a great day! You made it a breeze and I cant recommend you highly enough! I look forward to working with you again in future.
Nicole Dycer – Carers SA
Everyone enjoyed the afternoon and it really brought out the competitive spirit in everyone. I was surprised how quickly it brought the team together.
The guys had a great time and like true sales people they were still arguing over who really won at dinner. The program facilitation was great and Jason really made the day. Thank you!
Alicia Jennings – Travelex Global Business Payments
The program was very fun, challenging and team motivating. Total Team Building were very well organised and presented well. The team at Adventure World were also fantastic, quick, easy and professional and it was a brilliant venue choice.
I couldn’t fault anything and the prizes and the video collage were very thoughtful.
Hayley Glatzer – Transfield Worley
The program was a laugh a minute and really incorporated every team member. I really enjoyed the music & the friendly fun nature of Kate & Darren.
Total Team Building seamlessly organized the event which was a huge success. Kate & Darren made all team members feel comfortable and motivated them to get involved in all the activities. The nautical theme was consistent throughout the day and was greatly appreciated. The day was perfect.
Thank you very much for all your efforts and the video just showed what a great time we all really did have. On Behalf of the Team I wish you both a very Merry Christmas and a Happy & Safe New Year.
Louisa Dearle – Rio Tinto – Resource Strategy & Planning
Never had we experienced such madness that was involved with a Scavenger Hunt as we ran around Brisbane CBD taking photos, talking to strangers and collecting odd items. Everyone got really involved and had a fantastic time which was easy to do when you had a great facilitator (Teresa) who expressed such enthusiasm for the event. Total Team Building did a fabulous job in organising the event especially with such short notice. We contracted you on a Tuesday requesting that the event be run on the Friday. You pulled it together so quickly and easily – it was very impressive! Teresa, our facilitator was great. She had awesome enthusiasm and explained the day’s events very well. Everybody had a great time – full of fun and laughter. All the staff agree it was our best Christmas party event yet! We had lunch at a local restaurant afterwards and everyone was just buzzing as stories were exchanged. Thank you for such a great time!!
Jenny Cook – Benson Partners Pty Ltd
Just want to send a quick email to thank you for the event on Friday. It was a great success and everyone had a great time and still getting laughs out of it today. Was nice to see everyone bonding over the games and drinks. It’s a real credit to you and your patience to contain 44 people who had drinks on board to achieve such a memorable afternoon. Thank you again and we look forward to using you in the future.
Amanda Wood – Tarkett Australia
It was good, fun, enjoyable, a refreshing change from previous years team building exercises. It was great to get the photos afterwards. It was great to get outdoors. It was well organized and enabled supervisors to be participants for the whole day which was great. The program was well coordinated. There was excellent communication leading up to the event and also the prompting for information was good as it ensured we were organized. We also appreciated the quick response to the initial enquiry.
Great day! We will use Total Team Building again and recommend to other teams in Technology Services. Thanks.
Chris Schapel – The University of Adelaide
Darren & Katie provided a first class effort organising and running Brett’s Scavenger Hunt 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
I can definitely say that it was very well organized, fun and lots of exercise, I was so tired by the end of it haha!! And of course you and Jason are great to deal with and very professional.
Paula Carrasco IG Markets
What an amazing experience! I personally have found the screening very interesting, the new bodylife age analysis was such an eye opener. I now realise by the results that i need to change some of my habits. The live blood was the most incredible thing i have ever seen. The whole experience i can highly recommend to any person and especially businesses who want to show they value their employees and their health.
“Thank you to you and the team for a seamless morning. The activities worked very well, the ultimate Frisbee turned into a massive competition and I have never seen some of those staff so dirty! Everyone had a great morning and it was an excellent start to the day. I never usually have the time to join in but I did this time and enjoyed the yoga immensely”.
Natalie Keating – Dimension Data
I have used Total Team Building to run the last 2 events for my staff and I have always been impressed.
Darren and Katie have always been extremely organised and professional. They have a way of making sure that each event is different from the last but always as exciting and fun. Although I want my team to learn how to work together, I also want them to enjoy themselves and these events are talked about long after they are over. I will definitely be using Total Team Building again for my staff Christmas Party this year and I can’t wait to see what they come up with.
Rick Churchill – Churchill Cycles
I‘m always nervous when holding a big event for our members, concerned everything will be organized, on time, that everyone is happy and being looked after while providing a fun time and still maintaining professionalism. This time Total Team Building took care of it all! I could sit back and relax and enjoy the program myself seeing how organized and professional they were, very prepared and very experienced at getting all participants involved and having a great time, not to mention the team building that goes on continuously under the radar.
Thanks guys, we had a ball!
Luke Dimasi – Conan Fitness
The team thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon of activities and the opportunity to relax, unwind and have some fun. Having you there was worth it as it was well coordinated, fun and you made a great host. We are happy with the way it all went – Thumbs Up!
I’m glad I took the time to find you on the internet (via Google). It was also great to hear the team talking about the event still on Monday, and I have happily informed others about TTB. Thanks again Jason
Lisa Hamill – Rio Tinto – Energy & Climate Strategy
Web Profits greatly enjoyed the program and the intensity (and competitiveness) that came with the various games as part of Win it in a Minute. Many of us were quite sore the next day from pushing ourselves to the limits! And the winning team did not make the losing team forget that they won – they continued wearing their medals, just to rub our faces in it… !
The coordination of the event was great. Jason made sure one area of the home we were staying at was as appropriate as possible for all the games to take place in. After the finish we were immediately summoned to dinner and Jason cleaned up the area completely, which was much appreciated. We look forward to using another game at another one of our conferences in the future!
Anne-Marie Zimmermann – Web Profits
It was a fantastic night with many laughs and myself and my team enjoyed the whole evening. The co-ordination was fantastic, I was very impressed with Darren going the extra mile to find a venue and give myself multiple option.
A fantastic night and great job by Darren and Katie hosting the night.
