The basic principles behind our packages;

Communication – We create an activity which highlights the importance of good communication in team performance

Problem solving/decision making – We give the team a problem in which the solution is not easily apparent and requires the team to come up with a creative solution.

Planning / Adaptability – This shows the importance of planning before implementing a solution

Trust – this involves an exercise which engages the team members in such a way that will induce trust between them.

Survivor

This adventure is set on the Urupukapuka Island overlooking the breath taking Bay of Islands.  This is tribal warfare! In this adventure your teams have to work together to overcome physical and mental challenges, to see who earns the title of “CHAMPIONS”. May the best tribe win! A highly vigorous, stimulating exercise based on scavenger hunt principals but including dynamic challenges, and adrenalin pumping activities, you will be challenged to solve complex problems, overcome obstacles, carefully utilise your limited resources and rely upon your teammates for expertise and support.

The teams work towards unraveling clues to match a puzzle – related to your business or corporation. 

There is some water, some hills and some good old fashioned fun – for those not physically up to it the team building is adapted to include them and maximise their skills – all still working as a team.

What DHL had to say…

Our team of approx. 50 were looking for something different and exciting to do for our team building at conference this year. I am extremely lucky that I was passed onto Tracy at Blast as she definitely nailed what we were looking for. The detail Tracy and the team went into to make the team building specific to DHL was awesome. They were very attentive throughout the duration of the activity, helping teams where needed. The feedback from the team has been amazing, with almost everyone mentioning that this was one of the best team building activities we have done (and they have completed a lot of team building activities).
