Gold winner Team Building Asia is credited with delivering a significant number of team building events across the Asia Pacific region to more than 100,000 training participants, including across Hong Kong, Singapore, Macau, Shanghai and Taipei.
The Vendors of the Year awards, organised by Human Resources magazine, is a long-running annual vendor rankings report that recognises the best solution providers in Asia – starting out in Singapore, and this year extended to Malaysia and Hong Kong.
In the first year of the VOTY research in Hong Kong, all winners were determined on a two-tier selection process. First, the finalists were identified through an extensive online survey of HR managers in Asia on their preferences.
These finalists then submitted documentation to verify their credentials, which was validated by a panel of more than 19 HR leaders from some of the region’s largest employers.
In effect, for every category, the very end users of such services were the ones who made the critical decision of selecting the best.
In the 2015’s Vendors of the Year (VOTY) awards in Malaysia, D Jungle People picked up the gold award, Lawrence Walter Seminars bagged sliver and the bronze award went to Fish Camp Learning.
With more than 15 years of experience in the people development industry, gold award winner D Jungle People has developed and implemented a range of solutions designed to help organisations achieve their peak potential.

THE MPA TEAMBUILDING CHALLENGE
The School of Accountancy of Singapore Management University organised its first Teambuilding Challenge for Master of Professional Accounting (MPA) students on 9 October 2015. The full day event at FOCUS Adventure, Sentosa, brought the participants closer
With much excitement and fanfare, the event kicked off with an ice-breaker session. After overcoming the initial awkwardness, everyone soon relaxed and warmed up to each other. Participants were then divided into teams for the Geocaching Challenge – a race where teams had to pit their skills in strategic planning, resource and time management against other competing teams in order to win. Armed with navigational devices, participants worked in their teams to scour the island for landmarks and clues. At specific checkpoints, they also had to perform physically exerting challenges posed by their facilitators.
In the afternoon, indoor games such as ‘Blindfold Shape’ and ‘Key Punch’, aimed at mirroring real life corporate situations were played with no less enthusiasm.
Finally, to relive the day’s events and reinforce the message of ‘What builds Success?’, the class was treated to an exclusive video screening of the day’s happenings captured by the FOCUS Adventure crew.
Despite the physical and mental exhaustion that followed, the participants enjoyed themselves immensely and declared it a day that they would not forget. MPA student Jiang Wei felt that by taking the classroom outdoors, it relieved “us of a lot of the pressure and tension brought about by our coursework”.
The indoor games left a particularly deep impression on MPA student Zhang Wendong, Kenrick. His take-away from ‘Blindfold shape’ was that it “emphasized the importance of a common understanding and strategic planning to achieve a team’s goal”. While the second game “demonstrated how people tend to restrict themselves even when the rules were lifted and how important it was to be flexible.”
The majority of the participants, like MPA student Li Xiaolin, relished the chance to make new friends and get to know her MPA course mates better. It was a memorable and enriching experience for all and many were already looking forward to similar events in the future.
