Recce for Corporate Outdoor Training

Hotel in Lonavala

Hotel in Lonavala

Retreat heritage was the hotel that client had booked for a weekend. As per the discussion, two sessions in a day, before and after lunch were planned with total 6 team building games and few energizers. Next day company was planning overnight Pawna Lake Camping in Lonavala.
Conference hall

Conference hall

Two days before, we went for a recce to know the area available for activity. There were two conference halls; one large and one small. To our surprise, there was no lawn area. We asked the HR of shipping company i.e. our client to please confirm the same. We came to know that we can’t conduct lawn activities. So we requested to keep parking lot empty which was quite long rectangular stretch. Also, we planned to use swimming area for few activities. Overall, our recce helped us a lot to plan activities within the limited area. This reduced our pressure till the event date.

Breakfast

As usual, our team reached before time with all equipment and set up material on Saturday morning. After breakfast, we kept the activity sets ready. However, I asked the manager to keep the parking lot empty so that outdoor team activities would be conducted smoothly. Team arrived one hour late. But everyone was quick to grab some bite of bread butter, before entering conference hall. Team was very much eager to start with the team outing and so was the Instructor.

Everyone assembled in the conference with the sluggish feeling. To make everyone energetic, facilitator planned some fantastic energizers. After which, he took indoor craft team building activities. During this session, all teams were trying very hard to earn maximum points. Water activity was the most enjoyed by everyone.
