  • My favourite event of 2015 - Maximillion
    Trump Turnberry The client GE Aviation was looking for something that was different and added a competitive edge The Air Rifle shooting definitely brought out the competitive side with a joint award going to two top marksmen whilst the Falconry provided an elegant different experience in some glorious west coast sunshine GE Aviation left us some fantastic feedback Read it here Thomas our Wildgoose Scotland Manager s favourite project was building and delivering the Ballantine s Edinburgh Explorer The brief involved bringing a historical story to life throughout the streets of Edinburgh and gamifying the life of whisky pioneer George Ballantine it was a really great project to work on Ballantine s is a really strong brand and had loads of interesting content to work with The hunt also included a trip to National Register House and the participants were a great laugh Read about its success here Sandy our Learning and Development lead comments that It was a real pleasure to be involved again with the University of Edinburgh Business School this year for the Building High Performing Teams residential programme for their full time MBA cohort a highly motivated group of students from across the globe The programme comprised a tried and tested mix of indoor and outdoor experiential team based elements combined with facilitated scenarios and workshops and input sessions which related to the implications and applications of Belbin Team Roles from a personal inter personal and course related perspective Oh and not to forget one of our great GPS enabled Checkpoint Challenges Although we were lucky with the weather on Day Two this year note to self to remember the anti midge spray for the 2016 programmes UEBS again provided some great feedback Read it here For Jonathan the muscles behind Maximillion s operations his favourite

  • Our New Year's Resolutions - Maximillion
    edge a little When and how Watch this space Glen I am going to rinse and repeat one of my favourite quotes of all time We will chase perfection and we will chase it relentlessly knowing all the while we can never attain it But along the way we shall catch excellence Vince Lombardi I intend to chase perfection in the hope I catch excellence along the way Sandy As of 8th Feb 2016 I will be a Sheep in the new Chinese year of the Red Fire Monkey According to Master Tsai on the Chinese Fortune Calendar web resource Sheep is connected to a farmland of the summer Monkey is connected to the wind of the fall The duty of the farmland is to grow plants and crops The plant needs the help of wind to spread the seed The wind of the fall can help crop to ripen Therefore Monkey is a good job helper to Sheep Sheep and Monkey are good partners of the cooperation Monkey can help Sheep to fulfill their business goal When Sheep meets Monkey a shy Sheep will prepare to get in the spotlight John With just 33 munros left to climb I am warming up for a new challenge to preoccupy myself in the coming years My challenge will be to climb all fifty of the principal 4000m peaks in the Alps within the next ten years An average of five a year does not sound much but you can often go to the Alps for a week and be lucky to climb just one given prevailing snow and weather conditions So this years resolution is to embark upon that challenge and add five to my running tally of eight Thomas My resolution is to toughen up I have 3 long distance

  • Review of the year 2015 - Maximillion
    of the year We welcomed Danielle Kydd to the team in March and she has been a valuable asset learning the ropes very quickly and adding value to every event Furthest we travelled Ackergill Tower in Wick provided the idyllic setting for a Highland Games and Bond evening for a group from France Certainly made a pleasant change from driving to Manchester Birmingham or London Strangest phone call Searching for a replacement dwarf for a circus themed event Biggest disappointment Coach arriving 1 5 hours late to collect the clients with no apology they had been held up on an earlier transfer We have worked with a wide range of suppliers and venues to help deliver all our events over the year and must express our thanks to them for working with us to help deliver memorable events for the right reasons for all our guests What will 2016 bring Glen is our Activity Centre Manager and since joining the company in March he has been driving forward our MadMax Adventures and Turnberry Adventures offerings Glen says Contemplating a review of the year normally evokes thoughts of financials or percentages and whilst we enjoyed an all time record month in June with our Quad Bike Safari remaining our most popular activity I felt that some more random factoids may be of interest So in no particular order 2015 has seen MadMax and Turnberry Adventures Welcome over 2 900 intrepid adventurers Host 90 4 4 Off Road trails in our Landrover Defenders Run over 235 hours of Quad Bike Safaris approximating 950 miles Have over 13 000 arrows shot in our Archery ranges See 22 300 clays shot We look forward to another fantastic year and some more impressive factoids next December Thomas is our Wildgoose Scotland manager extraordinaire and he comments 2015 has been a great year for Wildgoose Scotland with loads of interesting new games content and event styles We kicked off the year with a big event for Calderys in Lisbon and later in the year ran an Amsterdam City Explorer We created several bespoke challenges including a partnership with the National Trust for Scotland on a public David Livingstone Centre game the Ballantine s Edinburgh Explorer and a unique GPS enabled 4 4 off road driving challenge in Land Rovers through the Perthshire hills We ran over 60 events 8 featured over 100 participants and several were used to support our Checkpoint Challenge format Our greatest achievement of 2015 was that over 90 of participants were blown away or their expectations were exceed by their Wildgoose experience We re hoping to better that in 2016 so watch this space Sandy is our Learning and Development lead who also provides us with some brilliant facts A solid year for Maximillion L D as we strengthened existing relationships with UEBS Axis Shield and Boehringer Ingelheim re engaged with previous clients like NFU RBS Group and GE Oil Gas whilst enjoying projects with new L D clients including Bett Homes
