Herve Joseph-Antoine, Global Managing Director of Pacific World comments, “Pacific World was challenged to deliver a programme which would not only promote team spirit, but also exceed the high benchmark set in Sydney in 2006. In order to achieve this, the team introduced an innovative teambuilding approach in Kuala Lumpur. “

Catherine Chong, Country Manager Pacific World Malaysia added : “We introduced the “KL Challenge”, which involved a photo hunt and an outdoor activity that provided our participants with the opportunity to explore Kuala Lumpur.  In addition to this, we also coordinated an activity where our attendees could build bicycles for orphans and give something back to the community.  This was the key difference from the past teambuilding held and one of its kind that the client find difficult to match in future.  We achieved a 100% attendance rate for the KL Challenge with all 350 participants from the Sales & Marketing division of Medical Technology industry worldwide attending.”

The client complimented the success of the programme stating, “The team building programme was in particular, very well received and will be quite difficult to top for any future event this division holds.”
