I just wanted to take some time to thank you and the facilitators – Berwin and his team – for an amazing and fun-filled experience. Kudos to Berwin for his professionalism and enthusiasm. Kannan for entertaining us and accommodating our requests during the last charades challenges and generally to the rest of the team for consistently maintaining high spirits and ensuring the whole group was engaged and involved at all times. We had a great time bonding and being out in nature for a change – it was a new experience for some of our expats, who really appreciated seeing another side of Singapore. So thanks again and please convey our appreciation to the team!

Thank you for all the effort and the planning that made the ONES event on Saturday a roaring success. We are very pleased with the smooth and safe conduct of the beach challenge as well the amazing dinner.
-ExxonMobil Engineering Asia Pacific

We are so impressed by the excellent work of Sasi and his TEAM, Magenta, Peter and Berwin that until now the church has not stopped talking about how fantastic they are. Many of us still have not get over the fun and the joy. The activities were simple but the delivery by Sasi was powerful and impactful.

As we do not have enough, we would like Sasi and his TEAM to lead the Ice Breaker(Energiser) again next year (2018), for our Church Camp from 10 to 13 Jun, and again in Johore.
-Covenant Vision Christian Church

Berwin and team did a great job and our teams were highly engaged, reflecting on learnings while enjoying themselves bonding with each other.

FOCUS Adventure is fortunate to have this team and I will certainly recommend your company and Berwin as the FAcilitator to others!

Thanks.
