A Major International Swiss Bank Takes on Jambar Team Building’s Wild Goats Challenge
Jambar Team Building is proud to announce the addition of a major international Swiss bank to Jambar’s list of clients who have completed the Wild Goats Challenge.
12th February 2014 at Clarke Quay, Singapore— Fifty-six employees from a major international Swiss bank gathered at Clarke Quay to partake in the Wild Goats Challenge. Pioneered by Jambar Team Building, the Wild Goats Challenge is an interactive trivia game played on tablet computers which requires teams to complete various tasks in order to accumulate points in a competition against each other.
After the participants were brought together for a photograph, as a prelude to the day’s activities they were separated into teams to play a round of Untangle, a game where teams work together to form a circle by unravelling a knot of arms and hands.
Then given a short brief by Jambar’s Barbara Maneschi where she explained the gameplay, teams quickly found themselves scrambling all over Clarke Quay trying to complete various tasks, such as having to take photographs of objects or themselves in specific poses, while answering trivia, in order to earn as many points as they could within in an hour and a half.
One of the highlights of the game was the Acting Scene, where teams had to re-enact a scene from the 1986 film “Crocodile” Dundee. The challenge was made more difficult by their having to create makeshift props out of the resources they had on hand, and participants had to stretch their creativity and imagination in order to satisfy the task’s requirements before they would be awarded points.
Another highlight of the game comprised a task where teams had to collaborate with their competitors in order to spell the word ‘Singapore’ using their bodies as letters, a task designed to promote co-operation over competition.
As the game reached its conclusion, the participants retired to their office to make their toilette before being ferried to TungLok Teahouse at Far East Square, where they had their taste buds tempted by a scintillating selection of exquisite Chinese dishes. Concurrently, the participants had their eyes treated to a photograph montage compiled by Jambar Team Building, and prizes were given out to all who had done exceptionally well during the course of the day.
At the conclusion of the whole event, everyone was left in high spirits. Representatives further commented: “We would be happy to recommend Jambar based on the very professional approach demonstrated and the success of the activities.” It was truly a great afternoon and evening which was enjoyed by all.
