|“Jessica was able to cater to all our needs and delayed the start to accommodate the late arrivals.|
All team Members enjoyed every minute of the event. Helped to connect the team. Broken the stereotypes we had about Team Members and allowed team members to laugh with each other.
They really made the event and helped with the engagement and spirit of the event.
A good mix of activities to cater to all our Team Members and personalities.
Jessica and the team were able to cater to our budget.”
John – Accenture
|“Great event! Thanks for making us laugh and giving us memories forever!!”|

Ralph (General Manager) – A.C.E.R. Press
|“On behalf of the ACPSEM Branch of Victoria/Tasmania, I’d like to personally thank Uplift Events for hosting a fantastic Great Melbourne Pursuit as our 2010 annual social event.|
Uplift Events designed and executed the perfect amount of challenges and pursuit stages in the 2 hour event. There was a perfect combination of mental and physical challenges and each team member could contribute to completing each stage as different skills were required.
Being able to tailor the event exactly to my group’s needs was a great experience and no request was too difficult for the Uplift Events staff. I supplied bottles of water and snacks for each race participant and Uplift Events gladly handed these out at the beginning of the race. I was also given the race results at the end so that I could distribute the prizes during our after-race BBQ. The Uplift Events staff members running the event were extremely enthusiastic and easy to work with.
After the race, people kept telling me how much fun they had and how different this type of event was for a social function. It really brought everyone together not only during the race but afterwards as we shared hilarious stories of how each team completed the various challenges. It was fantastic to not only help organize this event but to participate in it as well. My teammates and I had a blast testing our memory and problem-solving skills, and we just laughed our entire way to the finishing line!
Thank you once again Uplift Events for all your efforts in ensuring our group had the best possible experience. There is talk of this race becoming an annual social event so I look forward to working with you in the future. In the meantime, I will continue to spread the word about how Uplift Events helped make our 2010 social event one to remember!”
Natalie – ACPSEM
|“The Uplift Events staff were easy to work with, prompt with replies, and no request was too difficult for them.|
The Uplift Events staff continually bend over backwards to ensure that our group had the best possible event on the day.
The request of ‘different events from last year’ was really catered for. The challenges were an excellent mix and completely different from last year which made it a brand new race for repeat offenders.
Once again, Uplift Events exceeded the goals I wanted to achieve by running this event.
I already have recommended Uplift Events to numerous people. Also when I would talk about the event I was organizing, so many people wanted to participate, though they weren’t part of the group I was organizing it for.
I had acquired quite a bit of sponsorship money to hold the event so payment for the event was not much of a worry. Despite that fact, I believe that Uplift Events charge a reasonable amount per person given the number of staff required to host the events and the amount of organizing required to put an event together.
Again, the event ran for us this year by Uplift Events was an excellent experience and everyone had a blast completing all the challenges.”
Natalie – ACPSEM
|“Thank you Uplift for providing our therapy teams across the nation with a personally tailored pursuit for all of us to enjoy but also your attention to detail from start to end was appreciated. Well done!”|
Luisa – Act For Kids
|“The teams at Adeal really enjoyed the Melbourne Amazing Race last Saturday – it was fabulous fun and extremely well organised.

We will definitely recommend your company to others and if the opportunity arises in the future, I’m sure we’d be happy to run the Amazing Race with Uplift Events again.”|
Diane (Executive Assistant) – Adeal
|“Our staff loved it. Definitely was a different reward/celebration to what our company has ever done!”|
Simon – Aegis Services
|“We would like to thank Uplift Events for helping us celebrate our project’s one year anniversary which involved a really fun and funny afternoon playing Your Generation Trivia.|
My experience from our initial contact to post event was so positive, Sam and his team were so easy to work with and had such a streamlined planning process, were quick to respond to any queries, and were extremely organized and personable on the event day.
The Trivia presenter was perfect in the role, both hilarious and encouraging of our staff to really engage in the event and have fun.
Overall feedback from the attendees was positive, the event was really enjoyable, there were so many laughs and it was a great bonding afternoon!
Icing on the cake was the follow up after the event, receiving the Trivia results and the great photos taken by Uplift Events was a really nice take away.

With the challenge of co-ordinating this event for 100 people, you certainly went above and beyond to assist me with organising the logistics, budget, teams and our lunch event post the challenge.

It was so much fun, and we would definitely recommend the activity to anyone – even if you think you couldn’t do it. It was fantastic. Russell and Lauryn were entertaining, great instructors and certainly made the day an event to Meet Goals Comment: Even those people who didn’t they would enjoy the shooting experience had a great day.

Narelle – Alatonero & Stillwater at Crittenden
|“Structured event with every detail covered so there were no surprises. Staff provided good support to the team. A mix of light physical events to problem solving events that everyone could take part in.”|
Alin – Ansell
|“We would like to show our appreciation to everyone at Uplift Event who made our team building activity, the Melbourne Amazing Race so enjoyable and beneficial.|
Our main aim was to encourage team building and for staff to get to know each other. This was definitely achieved and an extra bonus for our interstate staff members to see the sights of Melbourne.
One thing that stood out was that the Uplift Events race officials were all very enthusiastic and it is great to see a younger run company being promoted.
The feedback we received from the participants was all very positive as shown below.
I have been in a lot of team building exercises but I must say the uplift events is the most challenging and fantastic way of interacting with colleagues and getting to know them in a different way. Even though I got tired and frustrated with some of the challenges I enjoyed the race tremendously. Thank you for organising this event because it was a great idea.
Once again thank you for all your help and we would have no hesitations in referring you to other departments and companies.”
Alicia (Project Analyst) – ANZ Mortgages Projects and Professional Services
|“Just a short note to say thank you for running the Melbourne Amazing Race for us. The feedback has been fantastic from the team, everybody thoroughly enjoyed themselves.|

Kate – ANZ
|“On behalf of all the team at the Australia New Zealand Policing Advisory Agency (ANZPAA), I would like to take this opportunity to thank Uplift Events for hosting a great team building day for our agency in November 2011.|
The program for the day put together by Uplift Events was exactly what we were after; a mixture of fun-filled activities, with an overall theme of working together. It was also a chance for us to spend some time together outside of the workplace.”
Jessica – ANZPAA
|“Thank you so much for your patience and the smooth running of ‘Survivor’ to kick off our conference. It was great to open with such a fun & energetic activity. Our teams are naturally competitive so it suited them well, and the feedback was that they really enjoyed the morning.|
Starting with a team orientated activity also gave our interstate people an opportunity to meet, mingle and collaborate with each other before settling into the core agenda. We were on very tight schedule and you respectfully made sure we kept on track and finished on time.”
Melissa – API
|“This is the third team building activity we have organized with Uplift Events and it is the enthusiasm from their staff and that the event is extremely well organized is what drives us back to rebooking with Uplift Events.|
All staff are extremely professional and friendly with a special mention to Chandre who ensured our event, ‘The Great Pursuit’ was a success. Chandre was able to address all our enquiries promptly which made the planning process run very smoothly.
As our event was held in the colder months there was potential for rain, however Uplift Events provided everyone with a free poncho and ensured any challenges or activities were undercover. This is just another example of Uplift Events going above and beyond to make sure that our event was a success.
Overall all our staff had a fantastic time and all worked together prior to the event to ‘get into character’ with their team colours, thus achieving our team building purpose.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Uplift Events to anyone looking to organize a team building event, big or small!
We look forward to our fourth event with Uplift Events.
Hayley (Office Manager / Executive Assistant) – APP CORPORATION PTY LIMITED
|“I would highly recommend using Uplift Events to anyone looking for a great company to organise a team building event.|
‘The Great Pursuit’ was highly worthwhile and a lot of fun. I found the event was extremely well organised and everything on the actual day ran very smoothly.
I am really impressed by how professional and friendly the staff at Uplift Events, in particular Sam who I dealt with directly while planning ‘The Great Pursuit’. Any queries or last minute changes I made were dealt with very promptly and efficiently.
Most importantly all our staff had such a great time competing in ‘The Great Pursuit’ and the feedback I have received from everyone has all been extremely positive.
We will definitely use Uplift Events again when planning our next group activity.”
Rebecca (Office Manager) – APP Corporation Pty Ltd
|“The Amazing Race style Great Pursuit was excellent for getting the teams together, fostering team spirit and a fun time out for 60 employees at ARQ Group.|
Everyone had positive things to say about the way it was organised and your amazing staff – they were so appreciative.
I’ve even had requests to organise another one again next time which we will look into your other services for the next event.
Thank you for a well thought out and well executed event. The challenges were perfect and a good mix between mental ones and physical ones.
I liked that it was inclusive so that people with mild injuries can also participate as it was a point-based system.
Your staff also added another layer to the energy as they were encouraging and fun to be around.
Instructions were relayed well and you can see them enjoying themselves too which feels good as a participant to know that the company cares for us.
I cannot recommend Uplift events enough.”
Perryn – ARQ Group
|“They organised a fun challenging team building event for us.|
They are clearly detail oriented which is very much needed when you are handled a large number of teams.

Kim – Asahi Beverages
|“We completed the Uplift Events’ Melbourne Amazing Race as part of a team-building event in 2016. It was the first time our new team of around 60 people had been together and involved attendees from all states in Australia and also from New Zealand. It was a great event to get to know our colleagues and build some new working relationships. The event was professionally run throughout and our team had a great time completing the challenging events in Melbourne.”|
Al – Asahi Beverages
|“Fantastic! Sam was extremely helpful with the many questions we threw at him, even allowing a group of us to call him on a teleconference to explain the event. He was always|
available and on the off chance he was unable to answer immediately, he would always respond and advise that we would be receiving a response by the end of day etc.
Fantastic! A very happy and friendly bunch of staff who helped in making the experience a very memorable one. I now have staff asking if this can be an annual event!
We were able to see sites of Melbourne which would generally not be seen as a local. The challenges were well thought out and enabled each team member to participate no matter their skill level.
Our goal for the day was to build staff moral and have staff work with other members they have never met. The event succeeded plus some in our over all goal.”
Renata – ASG
|“On behalf of the whole team at Aston Commercial we would like to thank you for hosting our Corporate Kidnap event!|
From initial contact through to the week after the event you and the Uplift team were so accommodating and organised. It was lovely to not have to think about anything.
The day itself exceeded everyone’s expectations, even those who don’t normally like to get involved couldn’t help but love the whole experience.
We would highly recommend Uplifts services to other businesses looking for a fun filled, stress free, team building event!
Ella – Aston Commercial
|“We would very much like to thank the team at Uplift events for the fantastic Amazing Race day that was organised for our Customer Service team.|
The organisation and contact from Jessica from start to finish was amazing and we achieved a very successful day with little effort on our end! All the details were taken care of and we were updated through the whole process.
The day itself was very well organised and the activities in involved were well thought out in helping to achieve what we wanted out of the day which was team building and communication.
There was a good variety of activities that were thoroughly enjoyed by all our staff.
The best positive out of the day was that our staff are still talking about the day 3 weeks later.
The photo package provided afterwards was also a bonus and very funny to share with the team.
We cannot recommend them enough and we look forward to organising our next event with Uplift events!!”
Karen (Customer Service Manager) – ATG
|“What a wonderful team building session. We all loved this experience, we all had so much fun and worked great together in our teams.|

Definitely recommend this event to others!”

Everyone who participated thoroughly enjoyed the experience and tackled the challenges you had set for us with great enthusiasm.
The team building experience was second to none and the challenges really brought out the best in people.
Your program offered us the chance to challenge our staff in a different way as well as encourage them to draw on their leadership and teamwork skills in order to succeed.
I have already recommended your service to other staff who work at Bendigo Bank as an extremely worthwhile and fun experience.
Thanks again for being so easy to work with and for tailoring your program to suit our needs and budget.
Merry Christmas and all the best for 2009.”
Marrisa – Bendigo Bank
|“The event met our expectations.|
We had a very good meeting and identified key goals. The Uplift Events program was based upon ‘Survivor’, which is just one aspect of team building exercises, but more than sufficient for what we needed at this time.
The exercises chosen were excellent and covered a range of activities including problem solving, memory and physical.”
Kirsten – Bioproperties
|“Everyone seemed to enjoy the event. I found Sam very responsive to any concerns I had and offered suggestions to assist. I was really impressed that the quiz was on our company and had been researched on our website. Really well done!”|

It is a great team building exercise and we can’t wait to do it again!
We look forward to seeing the photos. Keep up the great work Uplift Events!
Stephanie (Sales & Customer Service Co-ordinator) – Bollé Australia

A wonderful team building activity for a competitive bunch of people!”
Paula (Assistant Brand Manager) – Bollé Australia
|“What an awesome experience.|
I just wanted to congratulate the team at Uplift Events for such a well organized and professional event. As a business owner and having the demands of the day to day running of the business, it is such as relief that somebody else can organize an event and team bonding activity for myself and my staff.
All 36 participants loved every minute of the event. It helped with relationships within the business to flourish, which in turn will always help in business. The team at all the stores have become closer and relationships with staff from other stores have developed which is always a positive.
From the first minute of the event till the last minute of the event, it was a professionally organized event. Only positive thoughts come to mind from our event on January 19th and the follow up after the event with the cd full of photos was great. As a participant in the event, I didn’t even notice the staff of Uplift taking the photos.
I will be making this a yearly event to celebrate Christmas and New Years.”
David – Boost Juice Bars Highpoint, Watergardens and Airport West
|“We had 24 of our staff participate in the Melbourne Amazing Race ® this January. We did this for the purpose of Team building and as something different for our staff Christmas party. This is the only event we have conducted in which every single participant embraced it, loved it, had everything positive to say about how much they enjoyed it and want to do it again. All our staff had such an amazing experience and many of them are in fact intending to do some of the public events. If you’re looking for something different and fulfilling, then we recommend you try the Melbourne Amazing Race ® run by Uplift Events.”|

Thank you once again for answering all of our questions that we had and accommodated all our requests and needs for the afternoon.|
The whole group had a wonderful time completing the Melbourne amazing race.
The host made the event run without a hitch. All the activities that we participated in were entertaining and allowed for the teams to get to know each other better and work on their communication, problem solving and overall team work skills.
Thank you to all the team at Uplift Events for a fantastic afternoon!
Lachlan – Robert Bosch (Australia) Pty. Ltd
|“Sam was great with the first conversation, quote and any questions we had. Janine and friend were excellent – they have obviously done this for years and clearly love the experience with every new group – like the pied piper – quite fascinating to watch her do her magic. I had nothing but great experiences dealing with all staff. I thought it would be fun, but the experience was so much better – very empowering and fun for everyone. Our group was 60 people so the experience was pretty awesome, with the volume and vibration – it was brilliant!”|

Uplift Events are very professional and engaging.”
John – Cash Converters
|“It was great to be able to find an activity that everyone could participate in and have fun with no matter what their background, age and interests. This is one of the few activities we have run as an organisation where have had full participation by all staff members.|
Although there was some hesitation before the day, after the event the feedback was very positive with many staff wanting to do it again! It offered a great opportunity for staff to work as part of a team and provides memories and photos for the future.

It was well organised and the coordinator, Chandre was great.
We were able to choose the tasks, the location and the distance from our starting point.
They were just happy to oblige on all fronts.
We will definitely use their services for our next conference.”
Joel – Clemenger Field Marketing
|“We host a team-building event for our 50 staff every year, and the challenge is on every year to raise the bar higher than the year before. We definitely succeeded this year.|
The team at Uplift had the right balance of keeping a diverse bunch of personalities organised without feeling as though we were being ‘managed’.
They kept everyone involved and injected a sense of fun and good humour into the day.
Our team really enjoyed working together in different groups. They saw different sides to each other and loved the friendly competition.
We would definitely recommend this activity and company to others.”
Sam (Group Operations & Marketing Manager) – Clicks IT Recruitment

It is obvious Jess has a passion to deliver successful outcomes.

We will definitely be using Uplift Events for future team building functions.”
Sophie – Club Marine Insurance
|“Thank you and your staff for providing my team at CoINVEST with an outstanding experience last Friday.|
The ‘Amazing Race’ is a fantastic team building event and provides a chance for teams to work together to solve challenges while getting plenty of exercise and seeing parts of the city of Melbourne that perhaps they wouldn’t see.
But most importantly it provides fun.
We asked you to provide an event that encompassed all of our corporate values at CoINVEST, namely: Mateship, Creativity, Kicking Goals, Go For It, The Bigger Picture and The Vibe. The ‘Amazing Race’ covered all these and more.
I would also like to compliment your staff who provided help and organisation at each checkpoint. They added to the fun.
Once again thank you for the day. I will certainly be coming to Uplift Events for our next team building exercise.”
John (Chief Executive Officer) – CoINVEST
|“The Coles Marketing team absolutely loved the Prison Break event, run by Uplift Events.|
Your team were fantastic to work with from the very first call; nothing was too much trouble, even with last minute attendee and timing changes.
You were professional, always helpful, and remained flexible throughout.
The event itself, held in the Royal Melbourne hotel old police jail cell, was a fantastic mix of entertainment and team-bonding, and the food and drink menu following the event was enjoyed by all.”
Mendy – Coles
|“Many thanks to you and your team for organising the Amazing Race team build event for Coles Logistics last week. The feedback from the whole team has been incredibly positive, with the event providing a fantastic talking point during dinner that evening.|
I was particularly impressed with your ability to adapt/accommodate the many last minute changes we threw your way, from the constantly changing headcount to the delay in the start time. Your team took everything in their stride, and were an absolute pleasure to work with. They’d make excellent logisticians.
I would absolutely recommend your company to anyone contemplating hosting a fun, active team build event, and sincerely hope to have the pleasure of working with you again in the future.”
Shona – Coles Logistics
|“We had loads of fun on Friday. Everyone is still talking about it this morning – as has been the case over the weekend. We are certainly spreading the word. We saw parts of Melbourne some of us didn’t even know existed, others that have changed so much. Will certainly encourage many of us to venture back into Melbourne CBD. Thanks for a fantastic experience. It was a great way to celebrate our achievement, as a team.”|
Debora – Coles
|“We have held 2 corporate events with Uplift Events (both Melbourne Amazing Races) and were impressed on both occasions.|

|“A big thanks to Con and the team at Uplift Events for organising our staff social function, the Amazing Race!|
Everyone had a really great time and worked well together in their teams. The challenges were perfect, enough variety to get everyone involved and able to show their skills in the different activities. The feedback from the staff throughout and after the event was very positive, with some people saying they had never seen so much of the city!
The event was very well organised and just the right time duration for staff. The lead up to the event went smoothly and Con was a great help in organising the event to work for us, shortening the distance and working with us to complete the race at our chosen location in time for dinner.
We will definitely be referring Uplift Events and their professional staff to colleagues and friends for future events. ”

Natalie (Account Manager) – Corporate Housing
|“Thank you to you and your team for the City Survivor event we participated in last week.|
This event was a reward to staff who played a pivotal role in a huge project we have just completed after many years of hard work. We saw this as an ideal way of not only saying thank you to them but also allowing them to participate in a group event where they would have to work together once again as a team.
The results were fantastic. Everyone had a great time and it was interesting to watch the different dynamics in the various groups. We had a lot of laughs and would certainly not hesitate to use Uplift Events again for another event.
Thanks again Sam.
Have a wonderful Christmas.”
Ivanka – Costa
|“Thankyou so much to everyone at Uplift Events for making our team building day such a success.

One of a number of activities we are running to help improve communication and cross functional working.
They now have something in common and a shared experience to talk about. Started greater team interaction.
Great communication and planning by the team beforehand. They delivered everything and kept me on track too.
Definitely a talking point everyone attended really enjoyed themselves
Jude – CSL
|“I would like to personally thank you for your assistance in setting up this event. It was absolutely fantastic and have been told by many of the Directors that this is the best team event we’ve had to date so that’s saying something!|
I’ve had rave reviews from all of those who attended, it really was a great day. Lauryn, Russell & Carly were fantastic hosts and made us all feel really welcome. Some staff were a little apprehensive to begin with but after some practice and coaching from Lauryn and the team we were all really excited to get the competition underway!
Greg the caterer was great, everyone was impressed with the bbq – just what we needed on a cold day!
Thanks again Sam, we look forward to working with Uplift Events in the future.”
Marnie – Cummings Flavel McCormack
|“I recently organised my staff Christmas party through Uplift Events and we had an absolutely amazing time! We took part in the Great Pursuit which had us laughing and smiling our way across the city. The challenges kept us on our toes and was a great way to have fun whilst also building on our team work and communication skills. My colleagues and I are still talking about it now almost two weeks later. If you’re looking for someone to host your next function don’t look past Uplift Events, I promise you won’t regret it!”|
Kimberley – Dandenong Ranges Childcare Centre
|“The event met every hope I had for it and more! We had an absolute blast and people can’t stop talking about it.|
There were a few hesitations from some people going into the event in terms of physical activity requirements but they were quickly forgotten as the event got started and every single person only gave me rave reviews.
There has definitely been a greater sense of cohesion amongst our staff as a whole. And lots of communication an laughs in terms of telling each other stories about what happened during the event etc.
Customer service was absolutely outstanding. No request was too much or too difficult, and support was given every step of the way. There was constant ongoing communication from the event organiser from the day I asked for a quote until after the event.
All information provided was very well detailed and thought out. It left me with very little questions as to how the event was going to proceed and what it would entail.
Staff went above and beyond ensuring that our experience with Uplift Events was an enjoyable one. They were friendly, supportive and professional.
There was a good mixture of challenges and activities, that covered a variety of topics and utilised a range of different skills to get everyone involved.
The challenges definitely pushed us and made us think, keeping us on our toes but not to the degree where they ever felt impossible.”
Kimberley – Dandenong Ranges Childcare Centre

|“I would like to thank you and the Uplift Events Team for putting together such a wonderful team building event for our branch. Staff are still talking about the program and everyone has remarked on the excellent organisation of the event and how much fun we had.|
From our point of view, the day provided us an opportunity to interact with different work colleagues across the branch and I must say, we were all so pleased with how well the teams melded together and managed to provide performances beyond all expectations. Almost everyone has said they did not expect the event to be so much fun.
We are already planning a future event.
Please pass on my thanks to your team.”

|“I am writing to thank your organization for their efforts in organising the Melbourne Amazing Race team building exercise for Department of Immigration Wardens during April.|
Feedback from the participants has been very positive from both a personal and professional level. Although I knew the exercise was always going to be a fun event where our Wardens are rewarded for their voluntary work throughout the year, I have been very surprised at the feedback in relation to how this exercise has changed their thinking if confronted with an emergency situation.
I have spoken to our management team about the event and they seem interested in contacting you should they be looking at a team building exercise at a later time.
Thank you again for your support, and hopefully we can be in contact in the future.”
Graham (Security Manager) – Department of Immigration
|“There is a wider understanding of one another’s strengths and a stronger motivation to work as a team.|
Great work ethic, motivating instructor and felt she had a good knowledge of the various artworks.
It was a really great experience, brought the team closer together in order to problem solve and identify each other’s strengths.
It was challenging although achievable, the end result was great and higher than our expectations.”
Maryann – Department of Justice and Regulation
|“Uplift Events facilitated a positive team building day for the Unit. The activities completed on the day supported working together, thinking strategically together to complete the task, building motivation and goal orientated outcomes. It was well organised and professional.|
The business unit- CCS was a well functioning team in the first instance. the team building activities on the day strengthen some of our good practices and allowed staff to mix with two business units as we regularly interchange staff between the two units. This was important.
Pre preparation for the event was positive, aligned to DOJ organisational objectives, and well timed within the allocatd space. Uplfift events were flexible to also work in with a broader agenda.
Very professional and responsive and would highly recommend Uplift for other team building events. Most enjoyable and challenging which involved planning, organising, working together to achieve the end result. This is the second occasion we have used Uplift events and we have the service delivery has met our expectations.”
Donna – Department of Justice & Regulation
|“Thank you to the team at Uplift events, a very professional, friendly and fun team that made a very positive impact on our mid-year development conference. I spoke to Sam and said our focus is about customer experience, strategy, budgets and entrepreneurial spirit and he and his team delivered an amazing program for the team. We all had a great time and were able to tick all the boxes with creative challenges that Uplift developed that were customised for us. It was one of the highlights of the conference and I highly recommend Uplift to add value to your next conference or team building event! Thanks again form he whole team @ DI bella Coffee!|

The feedback from the team has been all positive. The Melbourne Amazing Race ® proved to be a great team building exercise, which was enjoyed by all. I would have no hesitation in recommending Uplift Events to other departments and companies.

Challenges were great which were able to identify the different personality types amongst each team.”
Cathy – Elite Customer Solutions
|“On behalf of EMC I would like to thank you for organising and running the Melbourne Amazing Race ® for our corporate team building event on the 13th November 2009. I would like to provide some feedback about our experience.|
From the initial contact with Uplift Events the communication and planning leading up to the race day was very professional. During my planning I was forced to make some late changes and was also delayed providing information leading up to the day of the race. Your coordinator was very flexible and able to accommodate all of my requirements. The race itself was run smoothly and the Uplift Events team spread across the various stages were enthusiastic and friendly. The comments I received after the race was that the experience was more fun than they have expected and they had participated more than intended. Others commented that the blend of physical and mental activity made this the best team building activity they had experienced.
One core theme stood out during post race conversations, which was the enjoyment of visiting parts of Melbourne never seen before. The variety of locations and diverse activities meant this theme was apparent for those who had spent a great deal of their life working and living in and around the city.
Apart from the enjoyment I got from the race itself, the most pleasing aspect for me was that expectations were set and met throughout my interation with Uplift Events before, during and after the event.”
David – EMC Australia
|“All of our staff were really excited to participate & worked well in teams with people they don’t often spend a lot of time with.|
Key Areas Comment: Our teams all worked reasonably well before the event, but we do feel that this event has helped their motivation & communication considerably. I think there is some improvement that is immediately obvious. I hope it is maintained.
The Uplift Events team were fantastic to work with. The level of communication and professionalism was amazing!
All of the information provided meant that all I really had to take care of was allocating the teams. I very much appreciated having the pressure taken off me for this event.
The team were amazing! All our staff have commented on how great they were in keeping everyone on track & motivated.”
Sallie – ENERNOC

A big thank you to Conant and Sam, you can see they love what they do and it really made for an awesome evening in which everyone got really involved, competitive and more importantly had FUN. I had a visit from Sam after the event where he dropped off a USB of photo’s and a small gift. Aside from the little things like this, I would highly recommend Uplift Events. You will not be disappointed! Once again, thanks for an awesome evening!”|

You and your team did a fantastic job of organising it. From start to finish, it was a very smooth experience. The tasks that were set out were diverse and could be completed by everyone with varying fitness levels, but most of all they were FUN! It was a great team building event. Your staff were always smiling and very helpful. The photos taken of the day, were really good and not one person was missed!
Since our department had such a fantastic time, I have already recommended Uplift Events’ Amazing Race to another department in our company, who are very close to booking it! I will recommend Uplift Event’s Amazing Race to anyone without hesitation.

We found Uplift Events to be accommodating, attentive to our needs and expectations, flexible, engaging and importantly you delivered on your promises.
The high-energy event ‘The Great Pursuit’ chosen and implemented was in line with our brief of providing challenging tasks that promote collaborative problem solving, accountability, encourage leadership as well as healthy competition. Equally it provided our team with the opportunity to have fun!
We would have no hesitation in using your services again for future team building events and would be pleased to provide a recommendation upon your request.”

We saw an immediate improvement that hopefully won’t revert back over time.
Very easy to work with, we had no issues at all. Chandre and Jessica were on time, very professional and ran the activity very well.
Chandre and Jessica were excellent. We really enjoyed working with them. They ran the event very well, were on time and very efficient with their set up etc.”
Tamara – Geoscience Australia
|“Just a quick note to thank you and your staff for your AMAZING efforts in pulling together our Melbourne Amazing Race on 7th September.|
Right from the initial contact until the last team crossed the mat, everything ran smoothly and no request was ever too much.
Your professionalism, knowledge and coordination of our 75+ group was brilliant – you certainly helped to achieve one of our aims of the National Sales Conference and that was to help build on a collaborative team and get people talking who have never met each other before.
As an ice-breaker to the beginning of our conference – the rest of the conference was highly productive and very engaging from each of our market groups, despite a few who pulled up a bit sore the morning after.
Being able to arrange such an event whilst in Sydney and you in Melbourne and it still was very professional and enjoyable is an absolute credit to yourself and Uplift Events.
We will definitely use Uplift Events again and will recommend anyone do the same. The cost, the organisation and the completion of the entire event was nothing short of AMAZING!!”
Joanne – George Weston Foods (Jasol Division)
|“Thank you millions Uplift Events, for a job well done and giving us our very own GMK Centric Amazing Race experience. It was nothing short of what you’ve promised to deliver – a fun and enriching experience for all. It was definitely an all-time for us and, dare i say – deservedly one of the finest races we’ve done. Everything from organizing, to the event itself, to the post-event service was just excellent. Teams were properly amped up kudos to your dedicated staff members whose contributions were unconcealed through their enthusiasm and professionalism. All in all, we had an absolute blast competing and racing around the city. All this, handily encapsulated in 6 letters – WINNER.|
The event which was organized with a notion of team-building in mind, successfully drew out the individual personalities, qualities and skills while putting them into best use in a team environment (not to mention under the constraints of time and fierce competition). Aside from those, it has helped us achieve plenty of nuanced motives such as bringing out the competitive side of some, challenging ourselves in ways we’ve never done before, thinking on our feet and making the right decisions, compromising and encouraging team members, testing our fitness levels, and triggering the inner determination in ourselves.
It was all smiles, so goes without saying really.”
Nicole (Social Club VP) – GMK Centric Pty Ltd

A big thank you to all your staff, they were all friendly and helpful and your organisational skills enabled the event to run smoothly.

|“We had the Uplift guys come and run the City Discovery at our school with a bunch of over 100 Year 9’s.|
They did an amazing job from the planning stage right through to the event itself. Jessica and the staff were professional and friendly and went out of their way to assist us.
Uplift took care of everything and there was very little for me to organise.
On the day they did an amazing job, keeping the students entertained, challenged and learning while having fun.
In conversations with the students since it is clear to see they learnt a lot about working in teams throughout the day and have reflected on how they could improve when working in teams again.
Exactly what we were after!
I would have no hesitation recommending Uplift Events for any school or company looking for an engaging event to boost teamwork.”

The event was very professionally organized by a very cheerful team of people and everything went smoothly and according to plan. We would highly recommend this as a company event – it definitely involves a lot of team work and you get a chance to see a lot of Melbourne.”|
Anita – Hospira
|“We can’t thank you enough for all the work that you put into not only organising our Survivor challenge, but really making the party possible in the first place! We would not have had a venue if it weren’t for you and we really appreciated all your guidance in putting on what definitely turned out to be a night to remember!|
A few of the guys who have been around HOYTS for a while said that it was the best Christmas party that they had ever attended, and even after the activity to just be able to hang around in the park with some food and music was pretty great.
On behalf of the team here at HOYTS Chadstone I would like to extend my sincere thanks to you for your work on our 2017 Christmas event. From coming to you with a skeleton of a vision, you were able to put together an amazing event that exceeded all of our expectations.
Your assistance in finding a venue, arranging the relevant permits, coming up with backup plans and helping us to liaise with our other vendors was invaluable. We were able to relax and focus on the leadup to our busy Christmas period in the office knowing that our party was in good hands!
On the day itself the set up could not have been easier, again we were able to enjoy the party as everything concerning our event was taken care of. While some of the staff were initially hesitant about the non-traditional choice of Christmas party, it was great to see everyone in attendance fully participating and the smiles by the end of the event made it evident that the night was a massive success.
We look forward to working with you again in the future and again would like to thank the entire team at Uplift Events for going above and beyond to deliver a great event.”
Georgia (Management Team) – Hoyts

On the whole it allowed everyone to participate at their own pace making it an enjoyable event rather than a competitive event.”|
Kylie – LMA Pacmed
|“We recently participated in City Survivor to outwit, outplay and outlast fellow colleagues in our team building activity. We all had a great day filled with lots of fun challenges and laughs. Well done to Sam and the team at Uplift Events for conducting such a well organised, professional and fun event.”|
Narelle – Lockwood Partners
|“We hosted the Melbourne Amazing Race with Uplift Events as a team building exercise for our team. It was a great way to kick off our National Conference and we we’re very impressed with Con and his team. They were accommodating, helpful, professional and creative. The event was very well organised and a massive success – the entire team had a blast and enjoyed getting to see Melbourne! We believe the event catered to people of all fitness levels and allowed everyone to get involved. Con and his energetic team of hosts did an exceptional job on the day. We would definitely recommend Uplift Events to others! ”|
Simona – L’Oreal
|“A great day was had by the Year 10 students at Loreto Mandeville Hall as they participated in the Great Pursuit in Melbourne on Friday 6 May 2011. The girls enjoyed all stages of the event and were excited about being given clues and challenges with which to navigate through the CBD. They valued the trust given to them and the independent decision making required to successfully complete the day’s activities. The day promoted team work, communication skills, problem solving skills, leadership skills and orienteering skills. It was a busy, exciting and fun-filled educational day.|
Uplift Events were very approachable, flexible and efficient in planning this day for our students. Regular contact between us was maintained in the lead up to the event to ensure the smooth running of the day. Uplift was very professional in their approach and worked very well with our students during the actual event. The staff were encouraging, kind and cheerful with our students.
After the completion of the event, feedback was sought from us and the administrative matters were completed very efficiently and in a timely manner.Our students thoroughly enjoyed the Great Pursuit and certainly found the experience unique, educational and fun! For many students, this events was the highlight of exploring and learning about their own city.”
Margaret (Year 10 Co-ordinator) – Loreto Mandeville Hall
|“Thank you very much for organising the Melbourne Amazing Race for Lucid IT. Everyone had a great time and enjoyed the challenge of solving the tasks and getting to the next location. Thanks also for emailing the photos so quickly and for sending the CD.|
I hope we have an opportunity in the future to participate in another race!”
Sue-Mei – Lucid IT
|“Thanks so much to you and your team for making our event so great – the bookie especially (whose real name I’ve forgotten, sorry) was fantastic and really went the extra mile, going to each individual to take their bets (as the lunch was predominately seated) and helping me with making announcemenets/steering the group to the right place at the right time.|
I really appreciated it, and I could tell that the guests really enjoyed that aspect of the day.
He also dealt well with a change in running order/location (as the boat company changed their timings on the day, which was frustrating) by quickly getting to a new starting location on the day.
And thanks to you for being so communicative in the lead up to the event, and keeping us on track with the various deadlines – that always helps when managing an event with lots of elements.
I would definitely use you guys again, and recommend to others for their events.”
Jennifer – Maddocks
|“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.”
Amanda – Maddocks
|“All the staff thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon. I have had nothing but a positive feedback about the events/staff. I will be advertising this in our Manningham Fortnightly Newsletter.”|
Daniela – Manningham City Council
|“Working with Uplift was fantastic – all of the preparation ran like clockwork, with Sam and his team keeping us up to date with all of our organising. Nothing was ever too hard for the Uplift team 🙂|
As we are a school group, planning is essential. Uplift was fantastic in making sure that we had all of the information given to us, and they also made sure we had sufficient time to get our kids organised with choosing teams and getting forms signed.
All of the team members were really enthusiastic and took the time to make sure our students had a great time.
All of our students (and teachers) found that the challenges were creative and catered for different strengths and abilities.
It was important for us that everyone had an opportunity to contribute, and Uplift offered us that.
This is the second time we have worked with Uplift events, so we had high expectations 🙂 But the team met everyone of those expectations and we all had a great time.”
Kristi – Maranatha Christian School
|“On behalf of Marie Stopes International and Marie Stopes International Australia, I would just like to say a big ‘thank you’ to yourself and your team for putting on such a fun activity for our Christmas Party this year.|

Some of the best upbeat staff I have worked with.
Answered all questions plus more in a timely manner.
Really good investment. Would recommend this to anyone.”

|“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.”
Louise (Remuneration & HR Analyst) – Medibank Private
|“Last Week the Year Eight cohort at MGGS were fortunate enough to participate in an ‘Amazing Race’ style day which was run by Uplift Events as part of our Year 9 transition day. After a quick explanation of the rules, we were allocated our groups and then the race began. First we had to jog to Federation Square as quickly as we could without using public transport. That was the first challenge as we were not all ready to exercise first thing in the morning! The day consisted of us visiting places such as ACMI, the National Gallery of Victoria, Eureka Tower and the Botanical Gardens. Although these are all places most of us were very familiar with, we saw things in a different light when we had to search for specific things in order to answer the questions on our list.|
We came to realize the importance of teamwork when we were in the Botanical Gardens and somehow our group was separated when one half lagged behind and took a wrong turn. It took us a while to find each other but we eventually did through teamwork!
My favorite activity of the day was a memory challenge where we had to run to look at some images a few meters away, memorise as many as we could and then run back to the group and try and place the pictures on a board in the correct order. It took my group around three goes to finally get it correct but it required a lot of team work and gave us a few giggles too! The overall day was very exciting, a lot of fun and definitely challenging. It was a great bonding experience for everyone and helped me get to know some of the girls in my year level better that I don’t usually hang out with. I would thoroughly recommend this activity to everyone!”

|“The Melbourne Real Estate ‘Social Club Committee’ would like to thank Sam and the team at Uplift Events for putting together such a great event!|
The communication on the lead up to the event was incredible, and the overall success of the evening and feedback form the team was positive We cannot wait for our next Survivor event in October!!”
Adriarna – Melbourne Real Estate

All the best with the event this afternoon, you have a beautiful day to work with!
Speak soon and look forward to booking in an event for next year.”
Adriarna – Melbourne Real Estate
|“It was fantastic, all staff loved it!|
No immediate improvement as all staff work very well at the moment! But it was great to do an activity with some staff that we don’t get to spend much time with.
I loved dealing with Jessica across all areas of the booking! She was attentive, very responsive and lots of fun in person when I met her. She has lots of energy which I think matches the activity!”
Andrew – Melbourne Sports Health Group
|“Thank you very much for recently hosting The Great Pursuit activity for the Melbourne Stars.|
Your staff were so wonderful to work with and made arranging the event extremely easy.
The activity was very different to anything we have done and created a lot of laughs for the team and enabled them to work with other people in the organisation they might not have previously.
We will definitely recommend Uplift Events to other organisations looking to host team building activities.
Megan – Melbourne Stars
|“Mercedes-Benz has worked on a project with Uplift Events by activating the Great Pursuit for 100 employees. Not only was the planning and organization perfectly managed and performed in a timely manner, throughout the whole event, Uplift staff remained professional and were easy to deal with.|
We can highly recommend Uplift Events to organize your teambuilding activity to get your employees out of the office to enjoy Melbourne and its surroundings.
We were so pleased with Director Conant Eng and his enthusiastic team that we have already re-booked them for another event.
Lara (Event Marketing) – Mercedes-Benz

Thank you for a job well done!”
Louise – Mercer
|“Our team thoroughly enjoyed their day breaking out of Pentridge prison. We are a fairly new team who had just been through a re-structure and change of management so we were keen to participate in an event that would get everyone outside of their everyday environment and learning more about their work colleagues.|
This activity was perfect! It got everyone involved in different way, and ensured we had a lot of fun doing so.
Thank you to you and your team.”
Bree – Metricon Homes

Renata – Millward
|“With a varying range of physical and intellectual capacities within our teams, Uplift Events created an event that was inclusive and most enjoyable for everyone involved.|
The photos given to us from the day clearly demonstrates what a wonderful time everyone one had.
Thank you again for your flexible and professional service given by all staff!”
Julia – Mind Australia
|“Everyone had a fantastic time at the Paparazzi event organised by uplift events. People were talking about it for days after and commenting on how much fun they had.|
We are a very cohesive group anyhow, but I believe it has helped improve this even further, and for people across different areas to get to know their fellow colleagues.
Very professional and all questions answered as required. Very pleasant to deal with
Everything went to schedule both before event and on day
Fabulous fun. Not too hard, but difficult enough to make us have to think a bit.”
Mark – Minifab
|“The event was thoroughly enjoyed by those who participated. A great way to get outside and see Melbourne after a full day of conference formalities. Because the teams were mixed with people from different states it was a great way to communicate and connect with people that you wouldn’t normally.|
Fantastic. Sam was always in close communication and frequently in order to ensure that everything we wanted to achieve out of the event was confirmed and we were comfortable with the challenges and time frames. The staff were helpful and dealt well with a crowd that were clearly suffering from hangovers! Pricing Comment: The event was very reasonably priced given the effort of uplift event, particularly with creating the new challenges requested by Mirvac.”
Stefanie – Mirvac
|“I am writing to thank you for running such a fantastic event for our group on Saturday. Your team were friendly and professional and the whole event ran very smoothly.|
The feedback I’ve received so far from participants has been overwhelmingly positive. It was a great chance for people to rise to challenges, encourage each other, work together, and celebrate their achievements along the way.
I would wholeheartedly recommend Uplift Events and the Melbourne Amazing Race for any group looking for an engaging, fun, challenging, team-building experience.
Thank you once again.”
Annie – Mission Australia

Alicia – MJC Partners
|“It has meant more people are now communicating with the broader team as they now know more people.|
Sam and the team were excellent. We had a long time frame between making a decision but Sam remained professional and keen to help throughout the whole process. The staff on the day were very helpful and friendly.
I thought the team did a great job in explaining the rules and helping along the way.
I thought the challenges were all very good and a great mix that did not take people too far our of their comfort zones.”

Would recommend to all.”
Taylor – Monarch Institute
|“The staff of Mont Albert Primary School participated in The Great Melbourne Pursuit, organised by UPLIFT EVENTS, on Wednesday 2nd February 2011.|
The idea for participating in this type of event was to foster team work and staff morale as well as being able to spend time together away from our usual work environment.
The day turned out to be highly successful and far exceeded our expectations as to the participation by the staff and the way that they all approached the challenges with 100% commitment. By the end of the event everyone was cheering the efforts of each team and laughing about the experiences they had just gone through.
The success of the day was due to the excellent organisation by UPLIFT EVENTS and the positive interation with the event staff on the day. The event staff was always smiling and happy to see you at each challenge and they offered encouragement throughout the day. They made everyone feel like they were winners!
The pre-event information was easily obtainable and gave us every opportunity to organise the teams and pass on relevant details to the staff. Conant was helpful at all times and always returned calls or messages.
I would highly recommend this event to any organisation or group who were looking to develop morale and teamwork, whilst having a great time doing it. It was extremely well planned and organised and ran like clockwork. Every staff member had a fantastic time and it was the perfect way for us to kick start the new working year. We haven’t stopped talking about it!”
Andrew (Assistant Principal) – Mont Albert Primary School
|“We would like to offer a big thank you to Uplift Events for the incredible organization of our Amazing Race event. The staff was so efficient and friendly, they made sure our day was full of adventure and fun.|
The race started on time, and everything was set up and ready for us at each new location. It really felt like we were participating in the television series for a while, with decisions to make, puzzles to figure out and physical challenges to participate in.
The Melbourne Amazing Race was a great idea for a team building event, with each team having to work through challenges together to make it to the next destination. The race certainly brought out some teams’ competitive side – as I’m sure you saw!
All 13 participants had an immense amount of fun, and it’s been the topic of conversation all week!”
Kaye – Moreland City Council
|“Team really enjoyed the event / the setting and had a lot of fun. Teams seemed to work well together and have fun in the process.|

It was a very well organised, professional and incredibly fun team building event. My team and I thoroughly enjoyed every activity and greatly appreciate how flexible it was to tailor our event.
This was not the first time Uplift Events has hosted events for NAB, and it certainly won’t be the last. We look forward to organising future events with you and your team!
Benny (Customer Products & Services) – NAB
|“A huge thankyou to Conant and the team at Uplift Events, for facilitating our team building afternoon.|
Our ‘Office Olympics’ event was highly worthwhile …….. the goals the organising committee set before the event were achieved and most importantly people had fun. The feedback on the day and post the event has been very positive, and we have found that this has had an ongoing positive reflection and influence on how the team interacts, which is wonderful.
The event was extremely well organised and everything on the actual day ran very smoothly. The staff helping on the day of the event were very friendly, as well as professional. They were eager to help out, regardless of what the request was for.
This was also true in the lead up to the event. Con especially did a great job helping us plan the location and activities for the day, and most importantly he was open to our suggestions and feedback about the finer details.
We would have no hesitation at all in recommending Uplift Events to NAB teams, or other businesses thinking of a group or team building activity.”

We would definitely recommend it to others for team events.”
Vanessa – NAB Test Capability Unit
|“Thank you so much for hosting the Prison Break Activity for our team at NAB on Monday January 13, 2014.|

Thanks again and we look forward to working with you in the near future!”
Yoke-Ching – NAB Unsecured Credit Portfolio Management Team
|“Good communication flow with the event organiser. Con was very good at ensuring we had everything that we needed and also provided us with a cd of photos and a thank you note post the event. Thoroughly enjoyed working with Michael and Georgie on the day. Feedback from the team was that everyone enjoyed the event, it was fun, different and meant that they could relax and enjoy rather than a brain drain. The event ensured that we worked with people from different areas/states.”|

I have already seen the attitudes between a couple of team members change in a positive way.
Sam was fantastic throughout the booking process and leading up to the event. The staff on the day of the event were fantastic as well. The staff were positive, friendly and informative. We couldn’t have asked for more.”
Aaron – Nufarm
|“Hey Sam – thanks so much for a wonderful day yesterday! The feedback has been brilliant and there were lots of smiles and laughs all round last night!|
We would definitely look at using your company again next year perhaps trying out one of your other programs.
It was great working with you and your team and look forward to doing so again in the future!”
Ellie – Oates
|“The staff at Oatlands would like to say thank you for running the Melbourne Amazing Race ® for us. You organised the event so well that everyone was able to participate and enjoy the fun of the day. It was, to quote many of our staff, the best team building day – ever!Everyone enjoyed themselves, the variety of activities entertained us all and your organisation was terrific.|
Your staff was friendly, helpful and a credit to your company. Please say thank you to all of your staff from all of our staff.”
Jayne (PD Co-ordinator) – Oatlands Primary School
|“Our experience of the Uplift Events “Pentridge Prison Break” was a very positive one. We are an office of 60 staff members and I wanted something that was both fun and challenging to start off our Christmas celebrations. I was not disappointed.|
I booked the event and firstly, I was impressed with the level of communication, support and information that was provided prior to the day on all areas such as documentation to be completed, how to get there, where to park, the best clothing to wear, what to expect with regards to fitness levels etc. It made coordinating the event from my end very simple and fluid.
The day itself was something special. Again, very well organised. The staff there were professional, helpful and fun and definitely added to the experience. The puzzles, problems and activities were “both fun and challenging”, as I had hoped for.
The icing on the cake was definitely holding the event at Pentridge. The atmosphere and surroundings enriched the activities and definitely helped everyone bring their criminal “alta egos” to life!
Thanks again for an amazing day (and the photos)!”
Emma – ObjectMastery
|“Thank you very much to yourself and the team for a fantastically run event. I have received really great feedback from our staff who participated.”|

Paige – Olympus
|“It was so much fun, very rewarding team building event.|
It was a sponsored event so we were lucky enough to not pay for the event.
But I am sure it was well worth it for our sponsoring company TRANSITIONS.
My team won overall, I put it down to working together and aiming for a funfilled day.
Tanya – OPSM
|“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.
Trang (Team Co-ordinator) – Optus
|“It was an excellent way to build team spirit and get to know some of our staff and Melbourne better.|

So many team members commented on what a fantastic event it was! The enthusiasm of the Uplift Events team definitely made such a difference, Jessica was a great facilitator.
What a great way to work together outside of the office in a different and fun way, I would highly recommend.”

Rob also told me after the event that it was a good idea to have a team building event such as this. And most important, God heard my prayer for good weather!
I never doubted that the team would have fun and would take away good memories, especially that we had so many foreign participants. So thank you!”
Felicity – Pacific Hydro
|“Everyone who participated has commented on how well the race was organised and how diverse the challenges and instructions were. Nothing was too easy or too hard which made it a challenging day that provided a valuable team building exercise.|
The day was organised so effectively and thoroughly that it was a delight for myself as the PacStrat organiser to not have to think about what needed to be done and enjoy the race just as much as the rest of my colleagues.”
Jennifer (Executive Assistant) – Pacific Strategy Partners
|“You guys were so helpful and really easy to work with. With a short timeline you pulled together a great event.|
Happy to pay that money for all of the work you guys did.”
Sarah – Parkville College
|“We all had a great time and your staff were fantastic and ran our function beautifully.|
We can’t thank you and your staff enough. It made our lives much easier to know that we didn’t need to entertain staff, you guys took care of that for us.
We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you and your services to anyone that asks.
Have a fantastic Christmas and thanks again.”
Beccy – Paul Sadler Swimland
|“Just wanted to pass on a big thanks to you and you team for creating such a fantastic afternoon on Friday. The office is buzzing today and people can’t wait to see the photos.

Adele – Parsons Brinckerhoff Melbourne Social Club
|“It is with much enthusiasm that I am writing to recommend the services of Uplift Events Pty Ltd.|
Our company were looking for a team building event that would bring staff together and build moral. I came across Uplift Events Pty Ltd by running a google search and we were not disappointed.
Our company choose to put our minds to a Prison Break experience which was held on site at Pentridge Prison D Division. Con & Xavier were our facilitators and they made the experience a very fun and definitely challenging one.
Con was very organised and communicated well to the lead up of the function. Documents and requirements were sent out to me with a time line and expectations. Very well-oiled machine.
On the day of the event both Con and Xavier were at the venue way ahead of us to ensure everything was set up and ready for us to break-out. Nine tasks were set for our group to conquer. Some were very challenging so the bribes came in handy.
All staff involved had a great time being that we were all very competitive people, they liked that we were out of our normal working surrounding and could slip into our prisoner alter egos. The event is still being talked about several days later.
I would definitely be using Uplift Events again going forward as they have plenty of different programs to offer.”
Gloria (Administration Manager) – Pickles Auctions
|“Just a quick message to say ‘Thank-you’ for yesterday. Everyone had a great time and lots of fun! We would definitely highly recommend you to anyone.|
Thank you once again, and we hope to do it again sometime in the future.”
Maria – Pinewood Primary School
|“I’d just like to take this opportunity on behalf of Pitcher Partners, to thank you and your team at Uplift Events for a fantastic day last Tuesday.|
The team here at PP are still talking about what a great event you and your team put on, and how much fun they had – I’ve even know that quite a few of them (including myself) will be signing up for your public event in October.
Not having worked with Uplift Events before, I’d like to thank you for making the organising of this event extremely smooth and easy.
Looking forward to your October event!”
Leigh-Anne (Personal Assistant) – Pitcher Partners
|“Well executed and the Uplift team put loads of energy into the day. We thoroughly enjoyed it.”|
Adele – PlanGrid
|“Thanks for the Melbourne Amazing Race that you ran for us during our teambuilding day with our client. It was such a different activity to ones that we normally consider, and the result was something that anyone could participate in.|
The event was very well organised by your friendly staff, and the challenges were at each stage a lot of fun and very creative.
Well done and thanks for a great afternoon.”
John (Offshore Projects Supervisor) – PSN & Esso Australia
|“The Uplift Events team were a pleasure to work with to connect over 100 participants on our Mentoring Program for a fun, interactive team-building and networking digital event “Team Lockdown”.|
Uplift were very flexible and willing to assist us to pivot the delivery of a face to face event to an online offering to provide value for participants on the program.
The communication was very clear and easy to follow for participants, who all enjoyed the variety of challenges, ranging from sing-alongs to riddles! It was a great night had by all (with some cameo appearances by kids and pets!) It’s great that we were able to connect people in a meaningful way whilst we’re unable to be together.
Thank you to the team at Uplift!”
Allyse – Property Council of Australia
|“Amazing engagement, smooth running with over 100 attendees all using the same tech!|
Jessica was full of life, enjoyed the little highlights at the beginning of the Zoom chat.
Challenges were all different, allowing all team members to show their skills and have a go at something that they may not have done before.
Incredible to work with and the assistance of moving a face to face event into a virtual one was done with ease!”

|“Our Murder Mystery experience with Uplift Events at Montsalvat was first-class.|
Jess was a pleasure to work with from organising the event, being flexible to our needs, and then delivering a great experience on the day.
We all loved the team building and would use Uplift Events again in a heartbeat!”
Sarah (Marketing Manager) – Provision
|“Thank you to Jess and the Team at Uplift Events, for hosting our Murder Mystery Team Building Event.|
Feedback from the teams has been awesome. They loved it!
This style of team building makes the participants realize that they need to leverage the strengths of their entire team – not one team member can solve the problems alone.
I highly recommend Uplift Events to host team building experiences. We would absolutely use them again.”
Kylie (Executive Assistant) – Provision
|“The team at Uplift events have helped our team of 80-100 people on two occasions now host what were seen by the whole team as the best events of the year (and when there are Christmas parties involved this is huge!).|
This year, Sam and the team were proactive in managing our Amazing Race event where even though there was light rain on the day- the team came ready with complementary ponchos for us all and helped us navigate the city in the not-so-satisfactory weather conditions.
Could not recommend Uplift more.”
Vinnie – PricewaterhouseCoopers
|“Dear Uplift Events,|
On behalf of PwC’s summer Vacationers, I would like to thank you for an extremely engaging and memorable event that was enjoyed by all. Con and the team were full of energy, were well organised and the feedback from our participants was amazing. We’ll definitely be using them again in future!
Kat (Campus Advisor) – PricewaterhouseCoopers
|“Dear Uplift Events,|
A huge thank you for hosting our most recent social event, The Melbourne Amazing Race. You guys did an awesome job, and were incredibly accommodating especially catering for such a big group. The day was very well organized, the race was creative and certainly kept us on our toes.
The fact that on Monday morning people were STILL talking about how much fun they had is a reflection of your wonderful efforts
Once again, thank you!!!”
Serena – PricewaterhouseCoopers
|“Thank you guys as well, the event was certainly well received by everyone and all had a fantastic time.”|
David – QMetrix
|“The team at Uplift helped us run an amazing corporate kidnapping for the company event. The Uplift crew are very professional, friendly and know what they’re doing! They provide nothing less then 10/10 service and the activity was absolutely fantastic. Thank you Uplift!”|
Juliana – QMV Solutions
|“I would like to thank everyone from Uplift events for creating a wonderful team offsite for REA Marketing group.|
The Prison Break event ran smoothly, was challenging and most importantly, was a heap of fun! The feedback from the day was incredibly positive, I think everyone enjoyed creating their prison alter-ego a little too much!
Thank-you to the wonderful staff who ran the event on the day, their enthusiasm and eagerness to help was wonderful.
The setting at Pentridge Prison was a perfect place to get into character and witness the history the place has to offer, while the event was a cool way to integrate new employees.
REA enjoyed the activity as it created an environment where everyone had to work together to achieve a common goal. Great for team bonding, would highly recommend!”
Mia (Executive Assistant) – REA Group
|“22 of our staff competed in Uplift Events Great Melbourne Pursuit recently and people are still talking about it.|
From first contact to crossing the finishing line Uplift Events were professional, accommodating and flexible.
The course was structured to our company’s objectives ensuring each station was productive whilst also being enjoyable for the participants.
I have no hesitation in recommending Uplift Events ‘Great Melbourne Pursuit’ to any business wanting a different way to bond and grow their team/s”
Henry – realestate.com.au
|“The team had a fantastic morning with the team from Uplift Events. All were unaware as to what they would be doing that day, so it was great to see how enthusiastic they all were to participate. Upon finding out they were doing Prison Break, there were a few cheers which was great to hear.|
Sam was fantastic in leading the event, his energy & enthusiasm for what he does is awesome. He made the group feel very comfortable with his easy going & friendly nature. It was a fantastic day had by all with feedback from the team afterwards saying how much fun they had.
Thank you Uplift Events & Sam for all your help & work in hosting the event, it was a great day had by all.
It was great to have the two groups mixed with people from different teams to get to know each other & also understand their strengths & weaknesses & how to work together as a team. From a managers perspective it was great to see who took the lead to motivate & get the team going.
Sam was very thorough with the information he sent & the follow up calls also. He made sure to have the paperwork I needed to keep track of. Was great to also have a call just before the event & follow up afterwards.
All the feedback I have had from all who participated was positive they all had a fantastic day
Everyone loved the activities as it got to test their minds a little & think about how to solve the problem
Will definitely look at another event at some point next year for the teams to do.”
Soula – Reliance Petroleum
|“Dear Uplift Events,|
Thank you all for providing a fantastic day!
The RMIT Great Pursuit certainly lived up to expectations. The challenges were mentally intriguing and at times even physically demanding. Students scurried frantically all over the CBD, while still maintaining a pace that introduced them to hidden gems and laneways, as well as mainstream attractions like the Eureka Skydeck and Strike Bowling bar at Melbourne Central.
Multiple students described it as the best thing they had been involved in at RMIT University. The event was structured to our needs and the flexibility to change the structure of our event and the challenges involved was fantastic.
We are hopeful that with the success of this year The Great Pursuit will become an annual event on our calendar!”
Jason – RMIT Link Sport and Recreation
|“Rowben Consulting have utilised the team at Uplift Events on 3 occasions to date. We are consistently impressed With the level of service, the organisation and can-do attitude of the staff, and the energy that is put into each event. We would recommend using Con and the team for your next corporate event, we know they will be seeing us again!|
Tracee and the Team at Rowben Consulting
|“The event exceeded expectations with fun and challenging events that encouraged team collaboration.|
Chandre was our event facilitator who was more than helpful leading up to the event and during.
All activities were unique and intriguing allowing everyone to work towards their strengths.
As stated, Chandre was extremely helpful and could easily be contacted for any questions. All correspondence received was professionally communicated and easily understood.
Uplift Events provided a great team activity in which everyone could complete in the comfort of their homes. As these are difficult times for everyone during the matter of COVID-19, Uplift Events still provided a great opportunity for our organisation to undertake our team building event without being in person.”
Daniel – RPS Group
|“Dear Uplift Events|
A big thank you!
Rubi Shoes had the pleasure of completing Race around Melbourne recently & we were beyond impressed, the level professionalism & engagement of our team members & Uplift events was fantastic. Uplift were so energetic & fun, injecting just enough competitive spirit into the day. The tasks assigned by Uplift events were adaptable to all, a colleague commented that they loved that both the physical & mental challenges. We all really got to know each other a little better with a new appreciation for one another which was our objective for the day.
We would highly recommend this amazing team building activity.”
Kylie – Rubi Shoes
|“The event was fantastic to round out the school year. It definitely exceeded expectations.|
We were so pleased with the event and the way that the activities brought the group together.
The year level are much more cohesive as a whole.
It was very easy given Jessica’s communication and the information provided.
The staff were fabulous.”
Kiri – Ruyton Girls’ School
|“Recommendation – The Great Pursuit|
A huge thank you to Uplift Events for running a fantastic Great Melbourne Pursuit for our team.
The program was thoroughly enjoyed by all participants and has been voted the highlight of our annual company event this year.
From a team building perspective, the format gave our diverse group of employees from different countries, regions and departments, the chance to get to know and have fun with colleagues they wouldn’t normally work with. We were delighted to see the laughter and camaraderie in the teams, only a short time into the pursuit.
The energy and enthusiasm of the Uplift team was infectious, engaging and engrossing even the most sceptical of employees.
The problem-solving challenges and friendly competition brought together the entire team in a fun and inclusive way and the team spirit continued well after the event was completed.
The Uplift team were organised, professional and accommodating and the format they designed was perfect for our large and diverse group. We all had a fantastic afternoon.
I would happily recommend Uplift Events to other organisations and I look forward to working with them again.”
Fallon (Director) – Sable37
|“On behalf of the team, we would all like to thank you and your colleagues for making last Thursday such a great day for us all. We had the perfect weather for the occasion, and though some of us (perhaps most of us!) were hobbling stiffly around the office the following day, our bodies not used to all that physical exercise, we all had a lot of fun. Some of the highlights were visiting the ACMI theatre and discovering hidden treasures around Melbourne which many of us hadn’t ever known about before. I think the owners of the Korean Restaurant on Little Bourke Street got at least two visits from team members during the day! Every one was proud of themselves for completing the event.”|
Nicola – Sacred Heart Mission
|“Overall brought out the competitive nature of the teams and allowed them to communicate and collabroate as teams. Communication has improved and also feeling part of a team. Overall, the girls were extremely professional and upbeat at the same time.”|
Kim – Schneider Electric
|“On behalf of my team at the SEDA class of Sunshine, we would like to say thank-you for helping us run a successful event to a large number of participants!|
Our experience with you has been one to remember and we are glad to have had the chance to work with such an experienced and professional events company.
Given the chance we would work with you again, and have no hesitations in recommending the company to other students in the Sports Development Program to use Uplift Events to aid with running their event.
When we were selecting a company to run our event with, Uplift Events stood out amongst a large group of companies, not only with their competitive prices and flexibility, but along with the vast experience and range of events that they can provide.
Overall, our experience with the company is one we will carry with us, not only for the rest of our program, but for years to come.
Thank you Uplift Events!”
Sherridan, Stan & Dylan – SEDA
|“I am writing to thank you for the professional organisation of the Melbourne Amazing Race event that our team undertook this week. Your staff were very friendly and engaging, and always eager to help and support – I am sure that you are proud of their commintment and passion.|
Our team undertook this event as a part of a larger team development day, and all of them have provided positive feedback about the organisation and activities of the day. The team felt greatly rewarded by the many team achievements that were made on the day, and particularly of the fun nature of the event. It was a welcomed relief from the varied experiences that our team members have every working day in palliative care.
Thank you again for your support, and we look forward to renewing our association again in the near future.”
Mark – South East Palliative Care
|“I would like to thank you and Sam on such a wonderful Murder Mansion experience. Uplift events were such a delight to work with.|
So easy to book with and I appreciated your prompt follow ups and replies to my questions.
The event itself was fantastic. Being in a mansion brought the event to life and seemed to make everyone put the extra effort in to solve the crime!
It was very well organised and the puzzles were challenging enough to promote the teamwork we needed.
It was great that you and Sam were there to give a little hint if needed. Even trying to solve the mystery at the end was challenging but so fun.
I received so much feedback after the event and all of it positive! Everyone had such a great time and they mentioned that it was great to see how their coworkers excelled when challenged in this way. We learnt a lot about each other!
Overall, the Murder Mansion experience was fantastic. Uplift Events did an awesome job organising this for us. I cannot recommend Uplift Events enough!
We will definitely be contacting you again for our next event.
Thank you to you and Sam again,”
Cheyne – Shaw Contract
|“I just wanted to thank you again for the wonderful day on Saturday. It was our second amazing race with you guys in 3 years and was a blast again. None of the activites were repeated and the new ones were just as much fun and challenging. Despite the windy and threatening conditions, everyone really enjoyed it. Your staff were again, friendly, helpful, encouraging and professional. I thoroughly recommend Uplift Events to anyone considering their services and look forward to the next function we book with them.”|
Shawn – Shawn’s Swim School
|“Thank-you so much for the great day you organised for us last week. The Melbourne Amazing Race far surpassed any expectations we had about the event. We were all looking forward to it, and often when you are looking forward to something so much you are let down, but this was not the case with this race. It was so well organised, you had plenty of staff, who by the way are a credit to themselves and asset to your business, they were so friendly and supportive.|
The tasks were varied and enthralling. They suited all the participants from my company down to the ground. I can’t believe how much we did in 3 hours (under 3 hours for us winners!). The finishing point was well chosen and we are even considering holding our Christmas function there. The trophies and prizes are a great momento of the day. Then there was the follow up with the results sheet and a CD of photos taken by your staff on the day sent out to us.
I have been telling everyone how great it was and will have no hesitation in recommending Uplift Events’ Melbourne Amazing Race to anyone. Thanks again for a great day.”
Shawn (Manager) – Shawn’s Swim School
|“The Corporate Olympics facilitated by Uplift Events for our team building event was a success. It was exciting, fun, engaging and got everybody to competitively work as a team.|
Con and his team were professional and organised throughout the whole process up to the day of event, which was a reflection of its success.
We will definitely consider other activities and events that they have on offer in our future team building events. Highly recommended!
With many thanks”
Jason, Jack and Almira – ShineWing Australia – Tax Division
|“Uplift Events were professional and efficient while we were organising the event. Uplift Events did provide us with enough information leading up to the event which was fantastic and made the event run smoothly. The staff were fantastic and made sure everyone was having a great time.”|
Jason – SICK Pty Ltd
|“UpLift Events ran a very smooth and engaging event for my team. We undertook the Masterpiece Painting Activity – it was very well instructed and coordinated. We couldn’t have asked for a better team to run our team building event. The whole process with UpLift Events was incredibly stress free and made my job so much easier! Thank you again Uplift Events, we can’t wait for our next team building day to try out another one of your events.”|
Monique – Simplot Australia
|“A big thank you to the Uplift team from Simplot Australia for yet another fantastic Melbourne Amazing Race ® event. It was the 2nd time I personally had participated in the race & thoroughly enjoyed both events. The fact that they were completely different was fantastic. I loved the eating challenge this time round (can you tell that I wasn’t one of the team members who had to undertake the task?). A credit to you Sam & your team for yet another highly organised & well run event which was thoroughly enjoyed by the whole group. A great way to see Melbourne landmarks & attractions (some that you don’t know exist) & build camaraderie with your fellow work mates along the way. We will certainly be back again & highly recommend this event to others.”|
Lisa – Simplot Australia
|“Thanks again for an excellent and very well organised afternoon. We all had a fantastic time and will be recommending this to the other Simplot departments. The activities were a great blend of both physical and mental tasks, some quite challenging.|
Amanda (Senior Food Technologist) – Simplot Australia
|“The Amazing Race was brilliantly planned and executed by Uplift Events. They tailored the race to our company values and understood our culture. We love working with people that get us! This is an outstanding way to spend an afternoon!”|
Tina – Slack
|“The Uplift team were excellent, and developed a comprehensive and fun program that tested SMEC’s senior managers’ problem solving and teamwork capabilities, while providing an interactive tour of Melbourne’s city landmarks. The SMEC team certainly enjoyed themselves, and have hopefully found the experience useful for improving cooperation and communication. Uplift, and Sam in particular, were exceptionally helpful when it came to organising our event. Sam responded quickly to all enquiries, adapted the program to suit our location needs, and was most helpful and professional in every aspect.|
All information was provided well in advance, and we were given a clear understanding of what was required from us in order to help facilitate the event. Once completed, Uplift took over organisation and management of the program completely, leaving us with nothing to worry about.
The Uplift staff were enthusiastic and very helpful, and the feedback received from participants was that they assisted in every way possible to make the event interactive and fun.
Pricing Comment: Good value for money, as Uplift organised, facilitated and managed the entire event. Very little was required from us, and the follow-up service and provision of photos from the day was an added benefit.”
Sibyl – SMEC
|“Smenco Pty Ltd was organizing an event that all their staff from Melbourne and interstate could participate in and enjoy. We googled various business’s that could do a team event and we came upon Uplift Events.|
From the outset Sam Tram from Uplift Events was interested in helping us organize something that everyone could enjoy and was mindful of our budget and what activities could be done with the mix of people that we had. We did the Melbourne Amazing Race and I could not have wished for a better event.
This was done in the Melbourne CBD at the end of July 2018 and was hosted by Sam, Ky, Luke and Ling. If anyone has watched the Amazing Race on TV it is based on their format but done locally in the CBD.
We had 5 teams – very competitive I must add – that thoroughly enjoyed the activities and the sense of competition that ensued. All the challenges were fun and everyone was able to join in and work through them all. We finished the event at Beer Deluxe in Fed Square where we organized lunch and refreshments.
Everyone had a fantastic time – all the interstate staff commented on how well it was organized and how much fun we all had. The event has been talked about constantly since and how much it was enjoyed.
I can HIGHLY recommend Uplift Events to anyone – you will not be disappointed. Next year we are looking at doing the murder mansion event and if the Melbourne Amazing Race is anything to go by then it will be memorable.
Thank you Sam and your team for a truly enjoyable experience.”
Tanya & Vesna – Smenco
|“Everyone enjoyed the activity and I found it saw people working together rather than against each other.|
It is a little to soon to tell, but I hope this will help those that are not confident in showing their skills a boost to step up.
Everything was great. The communications and directions were fantastic.”
Simone – Sopura
|“Thanks so much for Sunday everyone has been raving about it and there has been a lot of banter & gloating on facebook about the results, I have no doubt you will get a number of referrals from our event.|
Thanks again to you and your team for such a great day. Was really well run and everyone was most impressed.
I’m looking forward to getting the cd, we’re going to put a number of photos on our facebook page and website.”
Kirsten (Regional Manager) – South East Podiatry
|“Jessica and team were fantastic – everything ran smoothly and the guys had a fantastic time.|
Feedback was overwhelmingly positive.
Great to work together in teams with a bit of a competitive edge – made for healthy rivalry.
The guys loved being in mixed teams with people they don’t always work with.
Great communication, everything ran smoothly.
Communication was great.
Felt very looked after and like we could trust Uplift to execute the event well.
Very friendly, professional, fun and helpful.”
Megan – Southern Cross Austereo
|“I would like to take this opportunity to thank both yourself and the Uplift Events team for providing Southern Health with the most memorable day of team building.|
The Southern Health team at Stepping Stones work with young people with mental health issues which often provides a challenging and stressful place to work and a day of fun competition was the perfect way to bring the team closer together.
The professionalism of your team made the day run smoothly and assisted our team to be 100% involved in the activities without having the stress and difficulty of organising people and activities.
Around the work place I am still hearing people talk about the day. The activities we completed on the day were ideal and the vast variety ensured that people were stimulated which then encourgaed people’s participation. One particular activity involved a great deal of team work and problem solving and is an activity that we will now provide in our program for some of the young people on the unit.”
Tanya – Southern Health
|“The event was run extremely smoothly and professionally, and all staff involved got a great deal out of the event! We have had an immediate improvement in team cohesion and communication. Fantastic to work with, will use Uplift again and recommend them to other businesses. Very engaging, lively and happy people!”|
Dani – Spotters Shades
|“I just wanted to send a quick note to say thank you for organising an awesome team challenge event for the STIEBEL ELTRON Christmas celebrations 2016!|
You’ve done a great job and I very much appreciate all the effort you went into. Right from the start you took over, went down to the Point Nepean National Park to check out the area, always sent messages about the current status and any information I needed etc. Great service, very friendly staff and perfect organisation! I am happy to recommend Uplift Events to friends, colleagues and everyone looking for a fun group adventure.
We haven’t done an amazing race before, and the whole team fully embraced it. What a great afternoon! Thank you so much from everyone at STIEBEL Australia!

Renee – Stihl
|“Ky is simply the best to work with! We used Uplift Events for our 2019 Christmas Party and Ky was hands down the easiest vendor I’ve ever had the pleasure to work with. She was super organised and was always available for all my questions.|
Originally our team had planned to do a surprise party which consisted of The Great Pursuit around Melbourne CBD and would lead us all to a yacht party down the bay. Ky worked with the yacht vendor to make sure we were able to set up properly and had adequate time to do the race and wrap up before we took sail.
Unfortunately for us, our party was on the hottest day of the year (reaching 47ºC) and we had to do a last minute switcheroo of events. The week leading up to the party, I kept a worried eye on the weather. Once we realised there was no change (c’mon Melbs, really?), Ky was easily able to accommodate a new event for us at no change of cost and at our allotted time.
We ended up doing the Brick Master Challenge. The Brick Master Challenge was super fun and a great team building activity.
From my understanding, we were one of the first to take this challenge on. We played with our entire company (40 people) in 6 different teams. We were able to work in different teams and bring out our creative side.
Our team had an absolute blast! Ky and Sam were great at facilitating and judging our ludacris creations.
They were even so accommodating to help out with the reveal of the yacht party by allowing us to build boats for the final round.
10/10 would recommend and we hope to work with Ky and Uplift Events again. A huge thank you to Ky and Sam for a wonderful party and team building activity!”
Makeila (People & Culture Manager) – Stile
|“Just want to thank you for a wonderful event. You made the process seamless.|
All staff thoroughly enjoyed themselves and was great to all participate in something a little ‘different’.
The weather even held out – although hot!
Thank you again, we will be sure to consider one of your other events/services for any future activities,”

Kate – St Margarets
|“We wish to express my support for Uplift events.|
St Monica’s Primary School has engaged the service of Uplift events twice over a three year period.
Our purpose in involving the staff in the “The Amazing Race” and “Paparazzi” events was essentially to develop team building. We wanted teams to develop effective communication and use various strategies to solve problems within a fun and non threatening environment.
Uplift Events provided the perfect structure to achieve our goals.
We found Uplift Events to be thoroughly professional and organised. They were efficient and demonstrated excellent communication leading up to the event and also on the day.
We highly recommend the services of Uplift Events.”
Janine – St Monica’s Primary School
|“Thanks so much to Chandré from Uplift Events for hosting our belated Christmas party on the evening of 18th Jan 19.|
A very professional team from Start to finish and made the whole organizing process a breeze.
Staff took part in a Murder Mystery at the St Kilda Mansion and everyone had a great time trying to work out the Murderer.
Great experience and highly recommend.”
Annelle – Sunlover Heating
|“There were a few in the team who were not overly keen with the idea of team building at ‘Pentridge Prison’. Since participating they have been talking about how good it was! It was successful as we had fun together. Very professional, fun and prompt with sending pictures of the event. Would recommend to anyone. Staff were great fun and helped get the team into the spirit.”|

We were looking to create a collaborative, fun environment that allowed the team to take a break even though we are in isolation and have to work from home, and the event did exactly that.
Facilitator was very organised and ensured we were ready on the day of the event.
Could not fault the event organiser, Sam. Always responded to questions in a timely manner and was flexible with requests.
We have used Uplift Events previously for a couple of events. Found them to be well organised.”
Leonie – Telstra
|“Thank you to Uplift Events for organising and facilitating a quality team building activity – The Great Pursuit.|
The team at Uplift Events was really proactive, and easy to work with.

The staff were fun and friendly, and everyone who participated on the day had a great time – despite the windy weather.”
Clare – Telstra
|“I wanted to write and officially express my thanks for hosting and facilitating an Amazing race day for our Melbourne Office staff.|
I have received all the photo’s and there are plenty of laugh’s and smile’s all round, as the participants watch them play back on our big screens in each breakout area across four floors!
Your company did a fantastic job and the day went like clockwork. I have received many thanks from various people as we pass on the floors and I really have to thank you and your team, for the way the day all panned out.
The event achieved its purpose, to boost morale and make it known we have an amazing work place, it really is a better place to work. Also staff that have never spoken are now talking and laughing about the day in the lifts!
Everyone is talking about ‘next year’ and I will definitely be in touch with you again, if I get the go ahead.”
Dale (Senior Project Manager) – Telstra
|“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’.
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.
Sharlene (Business Specialist) – Telstra
|“On behalf of the Telstra Team — Corporate IT Solutions, I would like to thank you and your team for a fabulous event.|
This was the best event we’ve had, your team were friendly and well organized which made the whole event seemless. The feedback I have received from staff was ‘Amazing and so much Fun’.

Shakira – The Royal Children’s Hospital Foundation
|“Con and Sam were always very approachable and helpful when we sought information.|
The staff were consistently very professional and helpful, and obviously genuinely wanted us to have a great time.
Excellent and lots of fun.
It was excellent value for money and not over-priced; however, we had a bit of a struggle as a not-for-profit (not for loss!) organisation.”
Sharon – RDNS
|“The team from Today want to thank you for hosting our end of year great race across the Melbourne CBD.|
Uplift helped to make this the smoothest and least stressful event to organise of 2019.
From day one, you really bent over backwards to accommodate every request and ensure that everything ran seamlessly.
The cherry on the top for our involvement was the charity element, where we scavenged for presents to include in a Christmas hamper for the Royal Melbourne Children’s Hospital.
Feedback from the team was very positive, with many participants mentioning that it was the best end of year activity we had ever had.
Thank you so much!
Clare (Studio Experience Manager) – Today

Clare – Victoria Police
|“HomeConnect would like to thank you for providing us with a brilliant team-building day!|
On behalf of the team, I’d like to extend my gratitude to you and your colleagues for providing a stimulating, entertaining and meticulously organised event. As a new team and a new program, HomeConnect hadn’t had an opportunity to get together and bond in this sort of setting – Paparazzi was the ideal setting for us to finally do so! Ultimately, Uplift Events has provided us with the perfect opportunity to get to know one another outside the work setting. It was an invaluable experience.
Without a doubt, we’ll be referring Uplift Events to our colleagues and to others within the organisation.”

|“The event met and exceeded our goals for Vistaprint. We were looking to have an event whereby our employees had a great deal of fun but also got to know each other better. We wanted to encourage team work, open communication and cohesion.|
Fun was had by all and the teams worked together very well. Every one enjoyed the event and participated with enthusiasm.
The event was well organised, games well executed, Uplift had a safety focus which was excellent and the teams had fun.
Chandre and Sam were excellent. I was kept informed and assisted throughout the process allowing for a smooth execution.
The staff were attentive, professional and helpful.
The activities were very good, catered to all levels of fitness and were thoroughly engaging.
A number of employees have ‘thanked’ the team for putting on the event and stated how much they enjoyed it.”
Annie – Vistaprint
|“The feedback from the event has been fantastic. Literally everyone loved the afternoon and thought it was a great team building exercise. The 2 hours was a perfect period, and drinks and nibbles at the pub went down well afterwards.”|
Judith – Viva Energy
|“Although it was -8 in Melbourne that morning of the challenges they were fun to locate and my team worked together to navigate the city and its surprises.|
Great variation in the challenges / activities. Clearly achievable time-wise and without having to board any tram.”
Narelle – Viva Energy
|“Exceeded expectations, even some of the more cynical staff admitted to being pleasantly surprised.|
It has opened up the lines of communication a bit since then.”
Kate – Wakool Shire Council
|“We write to express our appreciation and gratitude towards the team at Uplift Events for conducting a fun, well-organised and well-structured event for our group.|
The Assurance division had a fantastic time and we’ve received plenty of positive feedback regarding the activity from our team.
Thank you again.”
Brad (Partner) – William Buck
|“Thank you very much for all the work you’ve put in that allowed us to have a great team building event.|
Right from the start our competitive sides came out and the race was on. All teams had a great time racing through the city and solving the tasks. Having said that, a number of people found it rather challenging to do a lot of fast walking / running, although they didn’t actually need to as public transport was a good alternative (especially trams) and it may have been an illusion to think running will get us faster to the next destination.
I really liked the strict, smiley, helpful and occasionally forgiving nature of the all the staff at Uplift Events. I thought the race was…. Just right. Not too long, not too short and covered a good range of tasks something for everyone. Even as the LUCKY LAST team…. It’s a team building exercise I would happily do again. It was about the journey and experience – which was a lot of fun.”
Thanks again from all of us.

|“Uplift Events ran a Murder in the Mansion at our Christmas function. What a great time we had. The team were very professional and the event seemed to run seamlessly. I would definitely recommend this company to run your next work function.”|
Kirstie – Within Australia
|“Thanks for hosting a great day even though the weather did clear up in the end, your team did an outstanding job and managed to keep this wild bunch tame. We all had a fantastic day.|
And I really appreciate that they cleaned up afterwards and put all our furniture back to how it was.”
Ashlee – Wood & Grieve Engineers
|“Thank you for last Friday. I believe the event was a huge success with the team enjoying the afternoon.|
I look forward to receiving those photos and sharing with the team.
You and your team were fantastic and it was a very smooth event with 100% satisfaction.
Many thanks and I look forward to hearing from you soon.”
Rose – Woolworths
|“Just a quick note to thank the Uplift Events team for providing a very entertaining afternoon for the compliance branch at WorkSafe. All of my colleagues have commented on how much fun it was. You and your staff were friendly and professional and this added to the informal atmosphere that we were trying to achieve”|
Emir (Investigator – Compliance) – Worksafe
|“The team enjoyed the day and worked together well!”|
Scott – Wyndham City Council
|“Thanks again to you & your staff for an all-round brilliant day. Everything was run professionally & smoothly from the preparation stage through to the actual day and allowed for a fantastic end of year function. The challenges were well thought-out & well organised, & traversing the city opened the eyes of many staff members to parts of Melbourne they loved but had never experienced before.|
I’d strongly recommend the Melbourne Amazing Race ® to anyone & I’m looking forward to more details on the public event”
