Optus Corporate Kidnap Event“On behalf of our Management team I would like to thank you for the wonderful experience we had last week. The team enjoyed the event and it was great to have everyone focused on working together to meet the end result.

The overall impact on the team has been exceptionally positive – they haven’t stopped talking about it. We feel that the whole event has engendered a stronger team commitment to our departmental and company goals. Not only was it great to see everyone working as a team we also believe it was a great opportunity for us to learn a little more about each other.

It was the perfect mix of structured activity and fun! We will certainly consider Uplift Events for future events as well as recommending you to my colleagues.

Thank you,”

Trang (Team Co-ordinator) – Optus

Maddocks Corporate Kidnap 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 add. 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.”

Your director, boss or manager has been kidnapped by an armed kidnapper and taken to an undisclosed location. However, the kidnapper left vital clues that teams will need to use to help find their missing team member. Starting from an office, conference venue or boardroom, Corporate Kidnap will have teams put on their detective hats as they solves clues and puzzles all over the city to track down the kidnapper. Uplift Events’ head investigator will help lead the investigation and break everyone up into teams. Each team member in each team will have a key role to play in solving the mystery.

The objective is to identify the kidnapper and find the location of their team member before the other teams and time runs out. Along the way, there will be many fun challenges and puzzles that teams will need to solve before receiving the next bit of information.

Teams also get to explore the city while solving many cryptic puzzle and clues – hence making it the ideal event for groups with varying fitness levels or a diverse range in ages.
