Strategy Day – Serious fun!

Play Nation + Strategy Day Retreat = Serious Fun!

The Play Nation events team was engaged by our client to organize their strategy day retreat that was held in Sentosa in the month of September. In consultation with the organizing committee, a full day of activity was planned for the day based on strategic presentations by the company’s leadership team as well as original programming designed by Play Nation.

The highlight of the day’s challenge is a real life escape game designed specially to the client’s request.

The game represents a client project that teams have to work together to complete to leave the ballroom. The unique aspect of this game is that while each team tries to be the first to leave the room, they must work together with competing teams representing other departments within the company to solve the puzzle and make their escape!

Upon making their escape, teams must make they way through a series of challenges at the beach. Each of the station is designed to enhance team bonding among the participants as well as to represent some of the common challenges they face working in a globalized economy.

To round off the strategy retreat, we had a prize presentation at the ballroom for the best performance teams in the games. Soon, it was time for dinner at the lounge with a sumptuous spread and plenty of wine to end the day on a high.

A three piece live band also performed for the guests, with many of them singing along to many classic songs and popular tunes!
