Haka team building event: This year’s company conference for the Faccenda Group will be one to remember for a long time to come. The company wanted their annual conference to feature a business focused activity in the afternoon that would get everybody bonding and thinking on their feet. Last year they opted to go with our Team Apprentice team building event, but this year they wanted something a little different.
The chicken processing company decided that a drumming workshop would be just the thing to rouse their delegates and get everyone participating and having fun. Drumming workshops are a great tool for improving listening skills and working together to achieve their goal.
It turned out that the Faccenda Group were complete novices when it came to drumming, but they soon became adept at working together to create their own unique sound. The session may have taken the delegates out of their comfort zone, but it quickly had everyone at ease with lots of noise, laughter and of course, drumming!
The fun didn’t stop there, in the evening the guests had just enjoyed their main course when suddenly, in burst 4 authentic Haka masters, all in traditional Maori dress. They performed the Haka and then spoke about their passion, their sense of belonging and how they combine to achieve – the Haka channels the energies of their tribe. These are the real deal, not people pretending to be Maoris, these guys are descendants of those that wrote the Haka that we use. The guests absolutely loved it and then they found out they were going to learn the moves and the chants, they embraced the experienced and the event finished with the room being split in half and each half going into a tribal face off with each other – to see which tribe would succeed.
The feedback from Faccenda was as follows: ‘What can I say!? Friday’s events were enjoyed enormously everyone; drumming fitted our theme perfectly and the Haka went down a storm. Thank you so much for your guidance and outstanding organisation.’

This really does have to be one of the friendliest venues we’ve worked at, everybody seems to be genuinely happy and nothing is too much trouble. Customer service is excellent from the lovely reception ladies through to the technical support guy. It makes our life as events people a lot easier when you have a team of venue people who want to help you succeed. I’d certainly recommend the venue for future clients.
