Introduction

Beunite organized the kick-off meeting and team building event for Atlas Copco in Thailand's Khao Yai National Park from 11th to 13th January 2017. Khao Yai is located approx. 150 km North of Thailand's capital Bangkok. It was the forth consecutive year that Beunite organized Atlas Copco's company outing in Thailand or other countries in South-East Asia.


The group of about 50 people stayed at Lilawalai Resort, a fantastic adventure team building venue, with 625,000 square meter of land ideal for outdoor activities and walk rallies.

The company outing started with a 1.5-day meeting and conference, where internal issues were discussed and strategic decisions were made. The adventure team building was scheduled on day 2 and 3 of the conference.

Theoretical survivor game

The team building event started on Thursday, 12th January at 1 p.m.  with the theoretical survivor game. First, a team leader was selected by each team.  In theoretical survivor, delegates were put into a hypothetical situation of a plane crash.


Out of 20 items for every day survival, the team had to discuss and decide 10 items that were most useful in case of a emergency landing in the middle of a forest. The group could keep the 10 items and use them in the activities to come.


Items for survival included matches, newspaper, candles, cloth towel, spade and many more.


Once the 10 items were selected, the teams were asked to decide on a spot to build their tent.
