THE TEAM MURAL – Themed Activity Series
Have you seen the Mona Lisa? What if an entire team can be inspired to create an artistic masterpiece that is befitting of their spirit and culture? In this challenge, everyone will be split into smaller teams. Each group will then be responsible for a specific ‘zone’ of a giant team mural that is pre-designed for the client.
Ultimately, the participants will be required to paint and decorate their ‘mural parts’ with little knowledge that these segments make up a bigger whole. Other surprises await that help create a dynamic, boisterous atmosphere where teams are required to move about relentlessly and interact with other teams. Such a setup encourages teamwork across departments and urges the teams to negotiate with each other through open and timely communication.
ROLLERCOASTER MANIA! – Themed Activity Series
Here, teams are given raw materials to construct a rollercoaster each. All rollercoasters will have to be built according to strict specifications and will be approximately 2m x 1m each in size.

With limited ‘life lines’ available in each team, proper and astute strategising is imperative. In the end, it is all about how the teams are able to utilise the given resources and emerge victorious. To compete or collaborate? Which yields the best results? You must decide!
