Feedback from the tour guests: 

Top rating tour.   The PA’s make it possible, great way to get to know your work colleagues.

Great to interact with fellow staff, the amazing race was good,

Loved the Thai culture. Thoroughly enjoyable and exhausted, Utterly outstanding food




Tour host:

We focus on the S,M,A,R,T, goals set by the group/employer.

Each member interprets that differently according to Time constraints, Energy levels (before and during), Collaborative skills (synergy), Personal wants and needs. If we correlate the feedback to “pre defined objectives” the result is an overwhelmingly success.

RE: Bangkok Aussie exec tour - Bootcamp - 2011-02

Hi all, great to be back at work with renewed enthusiasm NOT!
Just thinking about how soon I can get away on the next holiday
Thanks for making me feel more than welcome in your group tour
Great teamwork event ‘Race around Bangkok’ by the winning ‘SNACK ATTACK’ team, for those not fortunate enough to be on my winning team ‘L’ is for lost, late, last, losers
I had a fast and furious time and look forward to the next trip
Aaron - I think the lovely ladyboys like you but that’s Ok up to you, only in Thailand
Sarah - impressive bartering, are you thru customs yet?
Jacqui - not sure if you actually meant that I looked like a Koala bear at the Tawandang Brewery dinner but I could be mistaken (lost in translation)
Jacque - of all the people to bump into early morning on the streets, I was actually just coming home not going out
Katherine - old guys can still party hard it’s just the recovery that takes a bit longer
Phil very impressive package you have worked hard to put together, accommodation and location hard to fault, cannot overstate the food I was constantly delighted with the quality and cost
Arwee, Noi and Amie (PA’s) are a great asset to this tour helping make the most of the fast track trip
I now feel confident with the knowledge and experience gained that I shall look forward to taking my family on a trip to Bangkok, oh the shopping to be done
2011 Songkran may still be on and my son Cameron wants in this time
Thanks for showing me the memorable Thai smiles

The best things in life, aren't things.

Live simply.
Give more.
Expect less.

This group achieved most everything beyond the previous groups

was it becoz of them?
was it becoz of the benchmark set by the earlier groups
was it becoz of the Thai P.A. team intuitive skills

Successful Management is merely the art of Motivating people!

I had to join so that I could share the wonderful experience that I had.

Thanks to Phill (Lucky) and the Thai girls for such an amazing time.

My only regret is leaving such a wonderful city and team.
