Challenging As Well As Entertaining

Participant Feedback – Survivor:

The Program:

  1. 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.
  2. Venue was good and convenient but gave us the opportunity to “get remote” from the office so we could focus.  Activities were simple to understand (some more complex than others to actually do) and provided a great opportunity to bond in our groups.
  3. Program was interesting and thus well received by participants.
  4. Well prepared event with a good selection of team participating activities.
  5. I really enjoyed it – it was a fantastic opportunity for me to know my team  members better and see different side of them.

The Co-ordination:

  1. The co-ordination was well done and seemed quite well planned.
  2. Co-ordination was effective and appropriate.
  3. Games were well organised and well timed.  Combined team learning with having fun too.  Training leader was well prepared and with an easy-going style, great communication skills.
  4. Well co-ordinated and executed.

The Facilitation:

  1. The facilitation on the day was good.  Messaging was clear and aligned with the theme of the earlier office based theory activities.
  2. Excellent for the selected program; relaxing, close by and overall very convenient.
  3. Facilitator was good.
  4. Good – it was hard work for one person to facilitate all the activities for 20 people.

Overall:

  1. Challenging and even a little confronting.  Most of all it was Good Fun.  Well done.
  2. Great afternoon and the weather even collaborated – not too hot and the rain just held off.
  3. Thankyou to Lorraine and Woodside team and TTB for a great and fun day.
  4. All good, thanks for organising.
  5. Thanks for organising and facilitating.

Pirates of The Swan
Professionalism & High Level Of Customer Service

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!!!

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!

A Massive THANK YOU

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.

Win It In A Minute
Personable, Easy-going & Approachable

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.

Charity Bike Build

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!

Very Cost Effective For The Outcome You Receive

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.

Had Fun Whilst Donating Our Bikes To A Great Cause

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.

We Are Amazed At The Technology Being Used To Facilitate The Day

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.

Lot Of Laughs & Helped Break The Tension From The Agenda Of The Workshop!

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!

Once The Bandanas Were On Things Got Much Much More Serious!

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.

All The Games & Activities Were Not Only Fun But They Also Tested & Improved Our Team Work Skills

The Go Race (now known as our Amazing 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!

Excelled With All The Activities, They Were Fun & Engaging

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.

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.

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.

Will Be Using You & The Team Again For Other Events Without Question, Superbly Done

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!

I Don’t Think Any Of Us Stopped Laughing All Day!

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!

We All Thought It An Excellent Team Building Exercise & A Lot Of Fun

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.

Well Organised & Professionally Done, The Event Went Off Without A Hitch

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.

From The First Phone Call I Knew You Were Going To Do A Great Job

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.

Overall It Was A Fantastic Experience

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.

The Light Hearted Competition Was Enjoyed By All

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
