City Challenge Testimonials

Maddocks City Challenge Event“From obtaining the initial quote to finalising last minute details Sam was always quick to respond and easy to deal with. Joanne was especially enthusiastic and from the get go was great at getting everyone in the right spirits. Each challenge was fun, with the right amount of difficulty, it was exactly what I had hoped for, in fact I think everyone enjoyed it even more than I had expected. The fact that we are also getting a CD with photos of the day is another value added. I would not hesitate in using Uplift Events again and have already been spreading the word as to how great the whole experience was and hope that I get a chance to participate in more events in the future.”

Amanda – Maddocks

Telstra City Challenge Activity“A really BIG thanks and congratulations to the Uplift Events team on a wonderful ‘City Challenge’ event. We wanted the event to be team building Christmas function to get the team members together that had never met before, as well as an opportunity to get the staff out of the office and out of their comfort zone. I think this event more than achieved this goal. I’ve received alot of positive feedback from the group, here is a sample of their comments;’I really enjoyed the games and fun with fellow work mates, It was the best Christmas function I have attended in 23 years’. ‘I would like to express thanks for the effort that resulted in a very enjoyable day’. ‘The whole day was full of fun and surprises. It was my first visit to the Eureka Tower and a real thrill’. ‘What a fantastic day, I loved the opportunity to build relationships with people in my team that I never normally get to see in person’.

Uplift Events provided us with an entertaining morning of fun, physical activities and challenging puzzles that were at a level of difficulty that got us all thinking and working together as a team. The highlight of the day was the Eureka Tower Challenge… which proved to be alot harder than it first looked!!

Thanks so much for all your help making the day a success, it all came together exceptionally well and your friendly team of hosts did a fantastic job on the day. The Telstra team are really looking forward to holding a similar event again next year!”

Medibank City Challenge Team Activity“A huge ‘thank you’ to the Uplift Events team for putting on such a fun activity for our Christmas Party yesterday!The City Challenge was a great team building event and the flexibility of Uplift Events meant we could tailor the challenge to ensure it was suitable for different fitness levels. The City Challenge was a fantastic team building event that encouraged teams to work together to solve a variety of challenges.

As something different for our staff Christmas party, some of the participants were sceptical at first but they rose to the challenges and the competitive air was palpable. In the end the team loved the mix of activities that encouraged teams to work together to solve a variety of physical and mental challenges. Feedback from the participants has been very positive with everyone enjoying themselves thoroughly… It’s been the talk of the office today and we’re looking forward to seeing the photos at our next team meeting!

I would also like to compliment yourself and your staff who were friendly, helpful and enthusiastic. Please say thank you to all of your staff from People & Culture division of Medibank Private. We will certainly consider using Uplift Events for future events as well as recommending you to friends and colleagues. Thank you.”
