September 5, 2015 arrived with glorious weather in Taiwan's capital as months of planning, site inspections, emails & conference calls merged into the moment of truth and the celebration of 25 wonderful years for the team from Rabobank Hong Kong!
In Motion Asia were appointed the team building vendor for the wonderful occasion and the task of delivering a fun afternoon of team building, sightseeing and fun via our Xinyi Amazing
Customized with a start point at the Dianshuilou Restaurant near Taipei Main Station participants working in teams of 8 had to first travel via the local MRT system to the Xinyi District. Once in the Xinyi District teams had to navigate to 21 different checkpoints and complete a range of activities requiring teamwork, leadership, trust, communication, creativity & thinking outside the box.
Activities included local food challenges, singing challenges, creative photos, trivia, low-level adventure and much more.
Xinyi is famous for a host of attractions and sights and the Amazing Race course incorporates checkpoints at some of the best including:
Teamwork is critical to success and participants are required to assign team roles to ensure the maximum utilization of time, knowledge & skills. Not only do the teams work amongst themselves but are also required to integrate with the local community with checkpoints requiring participants to 'find their twins'. Racing to beat the finish deadline teams had to once again board the MRT system and make their way to the Sherwood Hotel where race packs were collected & surprise shopping gifts gathered.
The evening program saw participants transfer to the Taipei district of Bali on the banks of the Tamshui River and the appropriately named Waterfront Restaurant'.
With an open layout and central outdoor area for cocktails overlooking the river the guests excited reflected on the Amazing Race Challenge in anticipation of the upcoming results and prize giving!
Team 'Rabo Racers' took out 1st prize with a total of 445 points and received gifts and applause for their superior teamwork and problem solving skills. Well done the Rabo Racers!!
With dinner served, the birthday cake cut and drinks flowing it was a truly memorable night for a wonderful group. Happy 25th Birthday Rabobank!
