Today our Toastmasters Club went for a team building event outside Beijing. The pictures I am using here are from our CCTMC president (thanks for taking such nice pictures). It was a typical package with games on the bus. Then we were requested to make a team name, team flag, team slogan, team song and team pose. Our pose resembled how Toastmasters drives the fear out of anybody who wants to speak in public. I am sure that is clear when you have a look at this picture:
After that we did the „trust the team“ game. This picture is really nice:
Then we went to the „overcome you fear of heights“ game. We had to climb up a pole, stand up on it (and it was really shaking in the strong wind) and then jump to a trapeze that was hanging far away.
As only one of the organizing guys was belaying (the second one had to take pictures) I jumped in to make sure that the people who climb up the pole were actually secured on 2 points.
And then we went to the typical team building event of laser tagging. That means you dress up in army clothes, get guns that say „Made in Chna“ (yes there was the „i“ missing) and then shoot each other. I did feel closer to the team mates on my team as we had the same goal of killing all the others. But I still do not really get how this will help the team…
At night I went to a Ladies Party at a friends house. That was really cool!
