“The class required teamwork and collaboration in order to prepare a meal of the calibre that we enjoyed. We liked the casual nature of the cooking class, the way that each step was explained in detail and was designed to enable even the least experienced in the kitchen to prepare a gourmet meal. Much more beneficial than just taking my team out for dinner after a day in the meeting room.”
“I’ve had very positive feedback from everyone who participated. This event allowed the group to network with some of the people they don’t engage with regularly.”
“I just wanted to let you know that all of our clerks and lawyers have been absolutely raving about the class last night! They all commented on how amazing you were at running the class and they had such a fantastic experience. Thanks again, we’ll definitely be back.”
“The event absolutely, above and beyond achieved the outcomes we were looking for. It was a relaxed jovial atmosphere with a casual fluid approach, keeping us fully engaged.”
TOWN OF VICTORIA PARK LIBRARY
“We wanted a relaxed night together to just hang out as we’ve had a big year at work. We definitely achieved what we set out to.”
“It was so easy to deal with MoT in the organisation of the day, we were kept informed of the arrangements, everything was ready and ran perfectly on time and it was a great, fun day which our team enjoyed.”
“For us, corporate events are a thank you to our customers and their partners, who often get forgotten about. The cooking class is a perfect way to combine entertainment while learning something new.”
“We all had SO much fun and the team were still buzzing on Monday morning. Thank you for making the event so easy to organize from start to finish and looking after us so well on the night. We are grateful for the care and attention given with regard to food allergies.”
CBA PRIVATE BANKING
“This was perfect for our team size, everyone felt that they had active participation. We all took something away from the class and the topper, of course, was getting to eat the delicious meal afterwards.”
CHAMBER OF MINERALS AND ENERGY OF WESTERN AUSTRALIA
“We were keen to have staff engage with each other outside of the office environment and mingle with staff who they don’t usually work alongside. It’s been a topic of conversation since the event.”
“We had such a good time and everyone really enjoyed the event. It was probably one of the best team building events we’ve done from a ‘working together’ point of view. It allowed for good rapport, banter and cohesiveness.”
“The evening was a great success and everyone has expressed to us how much they enjoyed it. The Italian theme for the night was a hit! Thanks for all your assistance and I hope to be able to continue this sort of experience for our Travel Agents in the future.”
