Team Building with Targus
Team Building with Targus - 21st to 22nd June 2011.
Conference, Four Wheel Drive Island Tour & Beach Dinner Awards
Targus approached Making Teams to organise the photography and printing for their conference in Samui. On day two we organised a full day tour for them as a team building event after the work the day before.
Day One: Targus Partner Conference
The company spent the first day at Anantara Resort in the conference room with their sales partners and affiliates.
- Meet in the conference room (Anantara Resort & Spa, Bo Phut)
- Introduction by CEO
- Product development
The objective of the conference was to have a day spent with senior figures from Targus explaining new products, sales projections and brainstorming with staff and partners.
Lee Cannon was there from Making Teams as the official photographer, to record the event on a series of stills and video. A group shot of 55 people was set up and taken on the steps leading to the Anantara gardens and the whole day was recorded photographically for the client.
The group shot was edited and then sent for printing at a local photo print shop; one copy for each delegate.
Day Two: Four Wheel Drive Island Tour
Targus spent the second day on an island tour on 4 wheel drive jeeps, using eight jeeps to transport the 55 people in the group. After breakfast Targus set off in a convoy over the winding hills towards Lamai and headed for Hin Ta Hin Yai and the local market for a photo opportunity and then drove to the oldest tree on Samui, which is over 200 years old.
The next activity was great fun as the cars went off-road into a rice paddy. People were allowed to sit on top of the cabin as the jeeps went splashing through the water and mud, and the passengers in the back were thrown around; of course they were all wearing seatbelts!
Afterwards it was off to the temple at Wat Khunaram and the Mummified Monk where the Buddhist delegates made an offering.
Then it was off for an elephant trek through the jungle near the waterfall before a break for lunch. After lunch we took the delegates for a dip at Nam Muang 2 waterfall.
Next we drove uphill and stopped at the Magic Garden for refreshments before heading back to the resort by way of the mountain trail over the island. On the way the group stopped at the viewpoint at the top for another group photo overlooking the coastline of Samui. Finally, everyone arrived back at the resort thoroughly exhausted but having had a really enjoyable day.
