Team Building & Conference Activities

The feedback from everyone regarding the activities and the outcomes achieved from the activities has been nothing short of outstanding; as to the objectives we discussed at our earlier preliminary meeting, the results have exceeded my expectations. We look forward to working with all of you again in the future.

The program with COT was a supreme success! Everybody enjoyed the activities enormously, and it was fantastic how the facilitators drew parallels to work situations as we progressed through each task. We would love to involve Corporate Outdoor Training again in the future.

One of the most fun and interesting teambuilding activities we have done in years. Thanks guys! Well organised, fun and different to anything we have done in the past. The activity managed to cater for everyone in our group and was a great way to kick our conference off on a positive note!

The feedback we received back from our managers and staff was nothing short of excellent. Everyone was thoroughly impressed by the professional standard, the friendliness and the “buzz” that Corporate Team Solutions & Outdoor Training helped to achieve. It was a fantastic way to kick off our conference! We all look forward to the next time we work with your team again!

Warmest regards,
Montague Cold Storage Management and Staff

 

Just wanted to express a BIG thank-you for a fantastic day last week. The group was a little nervous with what to expect from the session, but we all had a great time, the session definitely broke the ice - and make us think
outside the square! It was the perfect way to start our conference off.

Various teams at RTA have used the services of Corporate Team Solutions & Outdoor Training and we have always been happy with the booking process, the program delivery and the team results. Ryan did an excellent job and the tailored program addressed the need for our team to provide quality work delivered within an agreed time period and the consequences of falling short of client expectations. The Team Management System [TMS] profiles assisted with the team’s understanding of individual work styles.

Team Adventure Activities

'From the moment of my initial inquiry, Corporate Outdoor Training were approachable, attentive and thorough with information and suggestions provided. On the day of the Point Nepean bike ride, not only were we lucky to have had a glorious sunny day in Portsea, the employees of Geofabrics were lucky enough to enjoy the surrounding beauty on a fun bike ride, led by the friendly and accommodating hosts, Ryan and Simon. The feedback was all positive and we all know how difficult it is to please everyone! Thanx to the team at Corporate Outdoor Training, we will definitely be back.'

Ninety two shop floor employees from all sites attended one of the six “Leading from the Front - Journey Programs” in the Northern NSW bush, each  over 2 1/2 days.  This was the first ever off-site training for most of our attendees! The program provided:

  • the skills required to be an effective member of a work team,
  • concepts, skill practice & feedback to improve leadership confidence, and
  • standard tools & processes to identify & solve problems at work

Those whom have attended the training have returned as ‘active’ team players.  Projects undertaken on site since participating in the training have shown solid results with tangible benefits to the business.

Graduate Programs

Here at BOC we have had an association with Corporate Outdoor Training for several years and myself as Programme Manager of our Graduate Programme I have know both Eric and Peter for the past two years.   We work with COT for team building activities and specifically our Graduate programme at both Induction time and what we call "development week" for our Graduates.  As each time we work with COT we have different needs and are looking for different outcomes - their expertise in regards to designing and tailoring a programme to suit what we are after, is outstanding.  The challenges and activities for individuals and for working in teams are all conducted in a manner which builds the trust with the participants and helps to establish relationships that are formed and strengthened back on the job.  The link from the training to real life working environment for our Graduates is a key, and COT have successfully achieved this each time.   Some of the fun we have includes not only problem solving activities, but adventure learning like, outdoors with high ropes, tramping, camping out, rafting, just to name a few.   I very much enjoy working with COT and their professionalism and experience means that I don't have to worry about anything!  They take care of all arrangements and provide everything we have ever asked for.  I would have no hesitation in recommending the services of COT - they are excellent!

The Apprenticeship Program was a great success! This was a result of the ground work COT did in designing a program that was tailored to Grocon’s  values and business strategy. Not only did they design an excellent program but their professional facilitators delivered on all the objectives and the feedback from our apprentices was outstanding. Plans are already underway for next year's program, so please keep a spot for us!"

Corporate Team Solutions & Outdoor Training were  instrumental in developing our initial graduate program in our Victorian division 9 years ago. They have continued to work with us in designing a national program and have very successfully run programs across all states including indoor and outdoor activities ever since. The program continues to grow and  evolve in meet the needs of our graduates and cadets. Their facilitators are highly experienced and really connect well with younger people. We look forward to next year’s program.
