“The Summertown team took to the water on 14th November for an eco tour through the Mangroves in Abu Dhabi. Organised in partnership with the Emirates Wildlife Society and Noukhada Adventure Company, the Summertown team paired up for a morning of Kayaking and learning about the unique eco-system of the mangroves. The tour highlighted fascinating aspects of the local wildlife and the measures currently being undertaken to protect this environment. The tour was enjoyed by all and provided a great opportunity for employees to get together outside of the office for a team building day. It was the first of a series of employee events that Summertown’s HR Manager, Esra Kayhan, has organized ‘It was a great event. The team had a lot of fun, the kayaking was new to many and provided a challenge, and the team learned a lot about the environment at the same time’. “
“Being actively involved in the Kayak adventure team building retreats for Emirates Steel, we found the retreats perfect for building a sense of “team” amongst oft times quite disparate groups of employees. However, they always left the next morning tired but elated, more connected, more motivated and empassioned about their teammates and their company…something we always found near impossible to achieve by conventional teambuilding courses in training rooms. We would thoroughly recommend other companies look no further than Noukhada as they bring the experience, the skills, and the expertise – especially in way of the teambuilding consultant who facilitates the event. It’s seldom you would have the skills of an MBA-MBTI trained facilitator with 10 years of Corporate Training Experience and an obvious passion for the outdoors facilitating such an adventure retreat. Thank you Noukhada!”
“Thank you very much Mark for the attached, it is fantastic! Thank you again to you and the team, for a fabulous day, it was very professional, and a lot of fun for the guests, they had a great time! I look forward to working with you in the near future.”
