Team Building with Axis

During an Axis MICE event held in Koh Samui, Making Teams had the privilege of hosting a team building activity day. The event took place at the luxurious Anantara Resort where the beautiful gardens and beach were a perfect location for the team building activities. While being fun and challenging the day was enjoyed by all participants.

Outdoor Team Building Activities Day

The Beginning
A briefing took place within the elegant Anantara conference room where the 60 people participating in the Axis Communications MICE travel group were divided into 5 teams. The groups were given a basic explanation of the team building events to take place and the schedule for the day. Everyone was ready and excited for the challenging activities and team work needed for the event ahead.

Everyone was confused during Blindfold Polygon. Everyone was blindfolded, teams were given a rope and instructed to make shapes. Groups applied their differing strategies, some teams created shapes that were very accurate while others were quite..amusing.

Minefield had everyone walking on edge. Teams had to devise a plan to work their way through a grid not knowing which squares were safe and which were mines. Of course, real mines were not used.

Toxic waste saw contestants from all teams dealing with a hypothetical situation. Faced with transporting a container of toxic waste (which contaminates anyone within 8 foot) and having to transport it to a neutralization can with limited materials; saw teams thinking outside the square and working together in a unique situation.

Award Ceremony
Once all the activities were completed, the teams waited in anticipation as the scores were tallied. Every team had their reasons for being announced as the winners for the Koh Samui Thailand team building event for Axis. As the results were finalized the points and winners were announced. An awards ceremony then took place, with trophies handed out and followed by a victory speech.

Conclusion
The event was a complete success. Everyone from the AXIS MICE travel group had a great time and enjoyed the challenges they faced during Making Teams': Out Door Team Building series of activities. We, at Making Teams, look forward to AXIS return to Koh Samui, Thailand for their next MICE travel, Team Building challenge.
