Warwickshire County Cricket Club approached WAKTU for a bespoke and challenging away day in the outdoors that addressed a number of objectives set by players and coaching staff. We received all of that and a great deal more, with players returning stating that ‘this was the best and worst day of their lives’! This says as much about the thrill and satisfaction of conquering fears, challenge, and competition, as for the depths some of the players had to reach to find the inner strength required to pull them through the day. This is not just the ‘off the shelf’ experience of many other providers. Tom and his staff went the extra mile (literally) to ensure that our Academy and Emerging Young Players were challenged in exactly the right way – be it mental or physical. Highly recommended.
I had the pleasure of working with Tom during our pre-season camp in November 2015. The full process from the initial planning and preparation through to the delivery and evaluation was meticulous and professional throughout. Tom’s communication skills and his ability to engage a varied audience enables him to motivate and inspire both large groups and individuals within the same setting. It was good to see how the processes put in place by Tom on the day facilitated the bonding of the group as a whole and a large part of this was down to his interaction and leadership of other staff members. Tom is a driven and highly motivated individual who takes great pride in the preparation and delivery of the tasks he is involved with. His excellent communication and interaction skills allow him to achieve all goals that he sets for himself and others around him.
We brought 20 of our School Prefects for a WAKTU Leadership and Teamwork day at the start of the school year. The day was at a breath-taking location (shores of Lake Windermere), the WAKTU staff were superb and we had a hugely worthwhile and rewarding day. The program our pupils had was enjoyable, challenging and they learned so much about themselves. They came as 20 individuals and left as a team ready to lead our school. I would thoroughly recommend WAKTU to any school. We will certainly be using them again.
A superb challenge and everyone had an amazing time. Many people overcame fears of height, water and driving at 35 degrees and what we did notice was the most negative people became the days champions……Thank you WAKTU, we’ll see you next year!!
We wanted to celebrate Housing Units’ 70th birthday in style and help those less fortunate at the same time. Tom was recommended to me by our charity partner, Kidscan Children’s cancer research. I discussed that we wanted to create an event around the 70 theme and Tom created an amazing unique 70 mile challenge for our team which involved a mountain run, cycle ride and kayaking down Windermere. None of us are super athletes but Tom and his team helped us prepare and achieve our goals and at the same time raise £10,000 for our charity. We were all super nervous about being able to complete the event but Tom believed in each team member and motivated each of us to also believe in ourselves and what we could physically achieve.
The week after the event, all of us are on a high about what we have achieved. It’s created a great sense of team achievement and lasting memories and laughs. The location and scenery for the event was amazing and WAKTU have provided us with a video of the event which captures the moments perfectly. The design and delivery of the whole event was seamless from beginning to end. Not only are WAKTU the friendliest bunch of people you will ever work with…they are professional and motivational. We are already thinking of what our next challenge could be but this would take some beating! Job well done Tom and team.
