Adventures in Excellence – What Our Clients Are Saying

But don’t just take our word for it…Check out what our past clients have said about the teambuilding programs with Adventures in Excellence.

“We had an amazing team building experience. Our leader Mark was extremely professional and fun and really made our experience enjoyable. We build a Quinzee which took a lot of teamwork and strategy which are areas our team can definitely improve on. Needless to say, we had a lot of fun and left the exercise with a lot to think about. I would definitely do it again!”

Brand Heroes Inc.

“The smartphone scavenger hunt was a fun and successful teambuilding event. All team members really enjoyed the experience and Mark was a great leader. Great activity to get people moving, working as a team and using creativity.”


“Mark was an awesome leader in terms of our team building activities! The mixology course was a great way to start the retreat and the Smart Phone mission was a ton of fun! Having the video of the experiences was an amazing way to end our offsite. Thanks for everything – stellar!”

MackKay CEO Forums

“This is our 2nd and now annual event for our Young Executive Group and this year’s event surpassed our expectations. It is not an easy task to design a 2 day team-building event for 30 individuals of differing backgrounds and to be inclusive of everyone and keep the team engaged. The event we designed this year was fantastic and I am getting great comments from everyone who participated. Some of the members who missed attending this year are really feeling like they missed out. Our goal is to create an environment that enables the team to connect; build relationships and to challenge themselves – through this experience they grow as individuals and we strengthen our organization. Already thinking about next year…”

“The Build-a-Boat event wildly exceeded our expectations. The level of engagement from all participants, the enthusiasm of the Adventure team, and the fact that everyone is still buzzing about it, speaks volumes about how successful this event was. Well done!!”

“Mark and Danielle offered us an experience like none other. Our teams loved all of the challenges and was the highlight of the conference. They want them to return to future conferences and we would love to have them as well. Truly a wonderful experience for everyone. They loved these activities over the spa and the spa was amazing. Thanks again!”

The Smart Phone Challenge was great for all levels and had us working as a team through some incredibly fun challenges. It was a great success and enjoyed by all! Thanks Danielle!”

Molson Coors

“Very organized and well thought out. Great team building and so much fun! A wonderful way to bring a group of people who work together to work as one team. The challenges were tough but doable and forced you to lean on your team which is the point! Mark and Danielle were amazing leaders and very helpful making sure our group had an amazing time, and we did! Highly recommend!”

COOK Medical

“Mark did a great job of mixing low and high impact activities so that all levels could participate. He did a great job of explaining to the group what was happening and he did a great job of staying in touch with me, the conference coordinator, to ensure all bases were covered. We all had great fun!”

Molson Finance

“This was our tenth annual sales conference and we like to make many changes to keep it fresh and interesting for our team. As commissioned agents, keeping them focused can sometimes be challenging. Mark and his team did an outstanding job and ROCKED the house. We will definitely be trying another Adventures in Excellence event in the future.”

“The perfect start to the retreat. Partners and Lawyers enjoyed the Mixology teambuilding event and are still raving about how much they enjoyed themselves. Mark and his team executed the perfect events.”

Oatley Vigamond

“Mark was fantastic! A pleasure to work with, although he really did all the work! He was a great speaker and really got our people worked up and raring to go. The feedback from our people was that they loved the team challenge activity and it was integral in making this year’s conference the best one ever! I really hope that we can work with Mark and team again next year, on a new event!”

Seasons Retirement

“Mark was fantastic through the entire process! He used our companies Core Values to design each station activity which really make it personal. The activities were fun and challenging, we can’t thank this group enough for the experience they created for our group!”

“The boatbuilding was THE highlight of the retreat! Our entire team had so much fun with this exercise and thanks to you everyone was engaged. We still laughed about the floats and especially the fearless racers at the bonfire that evening. This was a great team experience and I think this story will be told often. I also heard a lot of positive comments regarding the hiking/biking/canoeing activities. The weather – of course – was fantastic, so everyone was able to enjoy the fantastic scenery and fall colours.

Thank you for making this a success! It will be hard to beat in the future…”

“Our experience was wonderful! It really made some aware of others personalities, likes and beliefs….we actually used some of the strategies in Saturday’s meeting. It went VERY well. Upon returning to work Monday I have made us a wall….with each color, and their write up from the book that you had given us with the strengths and weaknesses, along with our names as to where we fit in. It will help us when we are dealing with each other and internal issues. Also, we felt very welcome at Deerhurst and enjoyed our time. The rock buggies were awesome! Thank you so much for the workshop, and organizations…if I could recommend any place of employment with communication problems…they shall go and see you!

Thanks again from all the staff!!!”
