    If a lot of people and need to burn time, it works and best of all its fun. Not exactly team building but i am sure participation should be high.

    Can you give more info like whats the dominant age group, fitness level and roughly want to spend how much?
    You wont see me much less remember me but i am the guy who makes you look good.

    Upon hearing the title, I know it would be fun.

    Aged around 20-40 ba. All working adult. I also dunno them. I just need to plan for them. Sian.

    How long this can last? Not to be too long cause they might get sick
    of it.

    This idea is good. Actually we book a private room for karaoke while having dinner. But the organizer wanted to make it a indoor team building.

    I agree with team karaoke. But how to finalize which team wins? Cause no teacher there to judge. Haha.

    Depending on your budget.

    My previous company had a teambuilding session at sentosa by Focus. Personally I find it very fun, the ppl there are are very fun and friendly.

    .
    1/2 the teambuilding activity has failed already if you're not in the mood to organize it in the first place. Participants MUST see that organizers believe in the effort for them to commit to actively making an effort to participate.

    p/s but dont get me wrong..... i see this in so many 'teambuilding' activities nowadays (even in my own firm) that I also give up as a supervisor on 'official' teambuilding activities .... adults dont really like being treated like kids..... BUT adults generally enjoy being kids again... think about it.

    Advise for the future ..... identify the social 'gang-leaders' in the company, management stay totally out of sight ... let THEM instigate activities ...... you just quietly discuss and fund it in the background....... MUCH better results that way imho.

    ok enuf from me......... hope it turns out well.

    biggest applause/cheer meter ? who cares..... the point is not in winning.... just make sure you have lots of prizes to give out so everyone is happy

    have lots of beer/booze ......................and take LOTS of photos

    learn from my sch:

    we dun do activities for u. let the ppl participating plan and create activities for other ppl

    1: u get team building in the team via the planning of their own games
    2: u get team building while playing other ppl games.
    3: u dun have to do much except to provide the stuff needed for them to make their games

    lot's of stuff.

    balancing stuff,climb wall, help each other cross obstacles...etc... they can do all sorts of stuff, according to your needs.

    They even proposed to let us find our own means to make a raft and sail out... but the commitee did not take that game...
