I want to express my many many thanks to you and your team. For METRO Cash & Carry Vietnam it was the first time that we did such a team building event. Target was to improve the communication between the different departments and the teamwork in our fast growing organization. The challenge of your team was to do this with 30 Senior Managers and 5 Board members means the preparation of this meeting was crucial for the whole success.

Today I can say that the event was much more than an interesting day. The whole team benefited from the learning and experiences they made: How to communicate in a better way; how to motivate my staff and how to improve the teamwork.

Again, thanks a lot and we will see again!

Mit freundlichen Gruessen / Best Regards

Uwe Hoelzer

"Embers Asia did an exceptional job of organizing an action-packed team building event for Nike's annual company trip. Nike typically integrates the passion of sports and adventure in corporate gatherings, so we were very happy to find resources to support our objectives in Vietnam"

General Manager, Nike Vietnam

Our management retreat at Dalat was a particularly successful experience, and the combination of fresh air, convivial atmosphere as well as professionally organized set of events by EMBER, really helped to gel the group. The camp-out on the first night was a great backdrop to getting out of the workplace and discovering aspects of each other we scarcely get to experience in the office.

"The Embers Team developed a very fun and dynamic program which not only exposed our Fellows to the skills that they would need to survive in a top graduate program in the U.S., but which also established a strong group cohesiveness. Additionally, Embers staff members were very professional, knowledgeable and great to work with. This is the third year that we have utilized their services to develop a team-building program and both years it has been well-received by our fellows and highly recommended for next year's group."

Lynne McNamara

Acting Executive Director & Director of Programs, Vietnam Education Foundation (VEF)

We are really pleased with the way you worked closely with us to design the program, and the way you and your team ran the event. We had fun and excitement from the games and a strong impression from the debrief following each activity.

For the success of our Binh Chau event, I would like to say thank you. We greatly appreciated your active working attitude and professional organization style. Not only from the field visits for the best place but to the arrangement for the team activities, we have had a great experience. Our staff also liked your games very much as they were not merely muscle games but the players had to think over and work together to find the best solutions for the games.

In developing the team building portion our National Sales Conference we wanted to create a new activity which would challenge, encourage cooperation and be fun for our sales team. Embers gave us several options and after we selected the Scavenger Hunt program they personalized the program to suit our needs. The program included using the Dalat setting and local history to make the activity unique. The program was extremely detailed which required good organization and implementation which the Embers team were able to do well. The sales teams experienced a new activity and enjoyed seeing the different parts of Dalat. I will definitely use the Embers team again to organize our next team building activities. Their creativity and professionalism is top notch.

Embers is the team building service provider of choice for the ScanCom Group. Over four years of extremely innovative events conducted in mountain, beach, and urban environments, Embers never failed to generate new and exciting approaches to leadership training and team building retreats for us. We loved the programs so much that we even flew our entire global sales network to Vietnam for a dedicated event with Embers. And most importantly, safety is always first and foremost in all the activities, which is critical to a fun and memorable experience.

I strongly recommend Embers Asia if you are planning a teambuilding event in Hanoi. FYI, they provide training in other parts of Asia too. I went through some proposals from their competitors, most of which were mediocre. I could give you some for comparison if you need it.

Ember-Asia's strengths:

  1. Responsive - Kim responded to my email in a day, while her competitors took days / weeks
  2. Innovative - Their concepts were similar to their competitors yet they were capable of unique style in activities
  3. Simplicity - Activities planned and instructions were simple but it did encourage participants to think (I especially like the blind-blocks!)
  4. Good Structure - Facilitator spent about 45min with me to understand my team and their job nature before the teambuilding
  5. Good Debrief - Facilitator took 1.5 hrs to do a good de-brief. And he spent another >30min analysing the results. He made an effort to end the teambuilding on a high note!
  6. Good facilitator - Quote my superior Neil, Dylan has a passion for his job! I think all participants benefited
  7. Good English - Company in-charge and Facilitator speak good English. This is important as language is a problem, specially in Hanoi
  8. Reasonable price - They work with a local agency and provide good transportations and English-speaking local guides I would not hesitate to consider Ember-Asia in my future trainings in Asia.

I am certainly recommending them to my other counterparts who handle events.
