Johannesburg Team Building Event – Nedbank Minute to Win It

TBAE recently had the honor of facilitating and coordinating Nedbank’s Minute to Win It team building event in Johannesburg. The event took place at the Sand River Guest House in the Rivonia suburb of Johannesburg.

Nedbank is one of South Africa’s largest banks and has its headquarters in Sandton, Johannesburg. The Nedbank Group actively seeks out and pursues opportunities to help communities, develop and grow small businesses, foster job creation opportunities and contribute to the overall development of a sustainable and strong social system in South Africa. Nedbank has earned the reputation of being a leader in sponsorship marketing being prominent in sectors such as golf, soccer, road running, sport for people with disabilities and various strategic sponsorships.

The venue for this team building event was the tranquil setting of the Sand River Guest House in Johannesburg. This venue is ideally located within walking distance of the Rivonia business centre where you will find banks, hairdressers, shops and restaurants. Sandton City, Fourways and Monte Casino are a mere fifteen minute drive from the venue. The Sand River Guest House has a beautiful grass area surrounded by trees and overlooking the river. This area is ideal for outdoor team building events such as Amazing Race, Corporate Fun Day, Sports Day and Tribal Survivor.

The Sand River Guest House also offers indoor team building facilities in the form of an air-conditioned meeting room. The room seats 10 delegates around a boardroom table or 15 delegates seated in cinema style. Indoor team building events such as Art Workshops, Minute to Win It, Noot vir Noot and Drumming can be held here for smaller groups. Nedbank’s Minute to Win It event took place in this meeting room.

TBAE’s Minute to Win It team building activity is based on the Minute to Win It television series. Participants have to complete various activities within a minute with the difficulty level of the activities increasing as the game progresses. Common household products such as plastic cups, cd’s, nails, cookies and even pantyhose are used to complete certain tasks. This is an extremely fun event and causes lot laughter with crazy activities such as Back Flip, Dizzy Mummy, Elephant March, Face the Cookie, Penny Hose and Spoon Frog.

Feedback from Nedbank:

“I would just like to thank you for your outstanding service that you provided to us for our team building yesterday. I must say that you 3 guys were very friendly and professional and really let us have so much fun. Will definitely be referring your company to the rest of our department.”
Rehana Hedinger, Nedbank
