We’ve all sat through one before — that obligatory company Christmas party where everyone simply showed up at a restaurant and had a meal together, the managers gave short speeches and offered a few rehearsed jokes, and people of varying levels of inebriation had a go at karaoke, until the employees started leaving on their own or with their own small groups, one after the other, signalling the end of the party.

The murder mystery is certainly the most unique of any event, as it surprises all the participants with a murder in their midst. A few weeks ago Nova 96.9 called upon us to collaborate on their “Revenge” themed radio contest which they decided should be staged as a Murder Mystery harbour cruise. One lucky participant even won a trip to the Hamptons! (Hear the winner be announced here.)
Thanks to our fantastic suppliers Cloak and Dagger, the night went off without a hitch, with regular facilitator Damon participating as one of the actors. Jonathan and Alex of cloak and

Some of the most exciting elements of Team Bonding’s Amazing Race events are the completely spontaneous and unplanned things that happen along the way.

Rather than sticking to a rigid schedule with certain outcomes like many similar team building events, the Amazing Race challenges allow participants to explore their fun and creative side, all within a light hearted competitive environment. No approach to solving a problem or a challenge is considered “wrong”. As a result, participants often surprise themselves with the truly creative and fun

Choosing and planning a successful office Christmas party can sometimes be a challenging role. This is because everyone usually has a different idea about what makes a great Christmas party. In the past, depending on the size of the office or corporate group, organisers had little choice in terms of type of event they could choose – it would normally end up being a dull lunch, where you get stuck talking to the 3 people who are sitting near you and don’t really get to know anyone or have any fun.
