Dear Douw ,
EXXARO NBC TEAMBUILDING SESSION 2013 AT BASS LAKE IN PRETORIA
I wish to thank you for your teambuilding support presented to my
team on the 25th and 26th April 2013. The feedback I have received from
all the participants is encouraging and positive. Your contribution
in the lifting up of our operational performance from where we were
in 2010 to where we are today is priceless.
We at NBC are very proud to have been associated with your undivided
attention and support.

It was a stunning day! Everyone gave input in my team and everyone
enjoyed it thoroughly. Well done on the thought and preparation for
the “Mission Impossible”! It has so many synergies with
how we should think about preparing and executing tasks that I constantly
think about it. PS you should consider making the packing up of everything
afterwards a part of the exercise too.
