We had a wonderful experience with Conundrum Adventures. We learned a lot about the town of Oakville (i.e. have never seen that white, fancy, carved out, wooden bench before!) and just enjoyed a relaxing, but fun-filled afternoon working out the challenges, bumping into each other along the way and laughing with each other as we tried to keep everything secret from the other teams!

 

The Conundrum staff were excellent in their various roles and kept us guessing while being fair to each team. The challenges were organized very well and included for us a lot of searching, reading, observing, listening and running around as fast as we could to beat the deadline back to the starting point. All in all, it was a great team-building adventure and one we would certainly recommend to others as well as participate in again.

A terrific learning experience for Healthcare of Ontario Pension Plan (HOOPP)!

 

I would like to thank Conundrum Adventures for providing my colleagues at the Healthcare of Ontario Pension Plan (HOOPP) with a well-organized, memorable team building event.

 

Conundrum Adventures’ Lynn efficiently organized us into small groups and gave each team the information and materials necessary to compete in a Royal Ontario Museum-wide scavenger hunt. Each team had to quickly organize a plan of attack, pool expertise, gather knowledge and capitalize on the best in each and every member.

 

Everyone rose to the challenge and had a lot of fun along the way. It was a great firsthand lesson in the dynamics of teamwork.

 

The following are highlights of the exceptional feedback we received from this event:

  1. “BEST TEAM BUILDING EVENT EVER!”
  2. “Getting to know and interact with [team] members I don't normally work closely with.” “Everyone had an opportunity to participate, since the trivia was not focused on one set of skills or knowledge. There were games on history, math, memory…”
  3. “Working as a team, and having fun. We didn't win the game, not by a long shot, but we worked on it together and had fun while doing it!”
  4. “The wrap-up was a good way to bring it all together and make it a learning experience.”

 

Thank you to Conundrum Adventures for their creative approach to team building and for organizing an extraordinary event for my colleagues.

After experiencing the outdoor adventure, I would describe Conundrum as a very unique team building resource that creates camaraderie between co-workers!

 

My goal when researching team building activities for my group was to find something that was different...something that would be a first for everyone involved....this goal was certainly achieved as soon as we hit the streets of downtown London!!

 

Our adventure was captivating for my entire group, which included a variety of roles, personalities and backgrounds!! I loved seeing the friendly competition that was happening between the teams!!! Overall, my expectations were exceeded and I would highly recommend Conundrum!! Thank you Teresa and the entire Conundrum Team for a fun and memorable day!!!

I just wanted to let you know how much our group enjoyed the Auction Fever activity. I was so impressed with the ingenuity of the game itself, and the professionalism (and fun!) with which it was carried out.

 

I also really appreciate everything that you did to make this an effortless activity for our planning committee to bring to our table.

 

We’ve received many kudos which should all go to you and your amazing team! Here is a sample of some of the more interesting comments:

 

“Best team building event so far.”

“I genuinely enjoyed this activity! I loved that it really did encourage team participation, and the puzzles and auctions were challenging and fun. I also loved that no one was singled out or embarrassed. This was a great fit for our group.”

“Best team building event I've attended. The fact that there was problem solving was the key and that is what we do in our jobs everyday. Very enjoyable.”

“It was the most fun I've had at a team building event.”

“I really enjoyed this interactive, collaborative, and strategic activity.”

“Fun activity, allowed everyone to work together”

 

Thanks again!

Our Retirement and Sales and Marketing Teams had undergone significant changes in 2010/2011 and as we were bringing everyone together from across Canada and from both disciplines for a business meeting we wanted to round out the day with a fun team building activity that would allow participants to get to know one another better.

 

Conundrum definitely fit the bill. They tailored the event to our time frame and devised ingenious puzzles that drew on the various talents and interests of the group.

 

The puzzles took us on a tour of downtown Oakville, starting at the restaurant where we would eventually end the day with prizes and a relaxing dinner. They were organized, professional and engaging. Our group agreed that this was one of the best team building activities they had experienced. I highly recommend Conundrum and would definitely use them again.

Our session focused on inter-team communications, and Lynn did a great job in facilitating discussions and inter-active activities that helped to build employees’ understanding of one another’s’ preferences.

 

The “Conundrum Adventure” was the highlight, and brought together the learning on communication styles to life, in a fun and collaborative way.

We've struggled to find a team building event that would appeal to everyone on our very diverse team. Over the years we've tried several things, with varying degrees of success.

 

Running a Conundrum Adventure was a great solution! The wide variety of puzzles included in the Adventure ensured that there was something for everyone. Your program offered our team a fun opportunity to work with one another outside of the office and learn about ourselves, our colleagues and the value of teamwork. One request, please. Remember the puzzles you used with us this year - we'll want a different set when we do this next year.

Our team thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to get outside, explore Toronto, and work together to solve the challenging puzzles you put together for us.

 

Our Conundrum Adventure posed many of the same challenges that we face in our work environment - we needed to plan, strategize, prioritize, and definitely needed to use some creative thinking in order to be successful!

 

Thanks for running such a fun and well-organized event.
