    The activities were truly fun. Particularly enjoyed the quirky challenges which made us get over our inhibitions like performances before colleagues or letting the fun side of our personalities show through photos we'd prefer to keep to ourselves. The time constraint and need for coordination amongst team members really fuelled our creativity both as individuals and as a team.

    I would balance between 8 and 9 and 10.... The design you worked with us on, helped align the session to the team needs...the biggest USP of FocusU is the ability to engage with the participants through the energy level of the trainers and the nature of activities. I would certainly recommend this BOMs as a breather for teams who are too bogged down. it serves well to break barriers and encourage collaboration.

    We had a virtual team event with approx 80 members for 90 mins. Every member was kept engaged with the initial ice-breaker games followed by the actual game, Vaccine Hunt. All our team members enjoyed it a lot and were thrilled while solving the hunt. I strongly recommend FocusU team for such virtual company team events. Our senior members in the team were also very positive about the overall event and had extended appreciation and kudos to Focus U team. Many thanks Focus U team for making our event successful and memorable!! Good Luck!

    On behalf of Airtel, I would like to extend you a heartfelt THANK YOU! The webinar titled “Discover your Creativity” conducted by you on 19 February, 2021 was highly enriching and effective.

The participants had many questions that you answered with patience. We would be more than happy to have another session in the future with you.

    It was magical, the response from the entire team was that this was the best thing that has happened since the lock-down. This is the best fun virtual team building activity we have ever done. Thank you FocusU team for the hardwork, behind the scenes and on stage, you totally rocked it. We are looking forward for another thrilling activity with FocusU team.

    I would like to begin with thanking you with the immense support we received from FocusU as our extended team for executing this virtual event. We received support from your team at every point, from managing the breakouts to engaging the audience during the DJ session. The team was quick with responses and made sure at every step the communication was clear to make sure nothing goes wrong at the time of the event. We would like to thank each and every one of you for helping us executing this without any hitch. The final AV stole the show and it was very beautifully curated in the short time span we had in hand. Thank you so much! Look forward to working with the team in the future.

    AMAZING! Loved it. I smiled for 2 hours straight and it was exactly what I needed. I wouldn't have changed a thing, It was nice to escape from my day to day work and have fun with my colleagues. To be honest, I'm normally anxious about taking part in team building events but this was so relaxed with lots of fun at the same time. THANK YOU!! If only it lasted longer 🙂

    Mind over matter Challenge was meticulously organized. It was very engaging and refreshing for all the participants. We received a series of positive feedback as to how these challenges have been impactful and energizing to kick start the day. Each Challenge was well thought out keeping all our current state of mind. There was a mix of fun challenges as well as fitness and a few of them made us all nostalgic. Overall, it was fun to have been introduced to such a Challenge to bring the best out of us all. Keep up the good work as always.

    This holistic approach offers a new decision-making framework that managers in a variety of enterprises, cultures, and countries are using to help ensure that the decisions they take are economically, socially, and environmentally sound. I recommend this course for both functional and technical leaders.

    The item that took this class from a social learning experience to tangible training was the quantitative tools that were presented. These will allow me to focus my decisions in a manner that is justifiable and defensible. Any decision maker that might be called on the carpet needs this training to defend themselves and their decisions in a quantifiable manner.

    Just wanted to thank you on behalf of our Khan Academy India team for the super energetic session today! You really made us feel that we were all in the moment and being virtual didn’t matter! The entire team is super excited about the final production and we will join your zoom invite for Monday for about 15-20 mins to watch it and soak it in together! Once again, thanks for truly delivering a fantastic experience and thank you FocusU for suggesting Beatbox Acapella as I know we had multiple discussions on this!

    “Thank you to the FocusU team for conducting such a great activity for our team as an internal session. The activity (random act of kindness) was fun, motivating and engaging. During these challenging times when all of us are trying to cope up and adjust to the new, the activity made us realise how we can contribute in the smallest of ways and bring a smile to others. It truly did lift up the spirits of our team. A great digital activity and very well managed by your team."

    “Thank you for the great experience yesterday. Overall, I would give a rating of 9/10 and would also recommend FocusU to everyone I meet. Some qualitative feedback received from others: - The program was very nice - Didn’t know how the 2 hours went by - It took our mind off work – created an #escapemoment that all of us need - The FocusU team was very enterprising, with high passion and energy levels - The application of zoom in and zoom out done at the end was sharp and very relevant Thank you once again for organizing this so smoothly and helping us boost the team morale, have fun and drive engagement further. Look forward to more such sessions in the future."

    "I would like to congratulate and thank you for helping PVMI with such an engaging and fun session for the summer interns as part of their Induction. You already had various options for the session in mind when we were planning for the induction in our office. But when Covid19 situation led to the lockdown, you were able to quickly suggest us other options, which could be done on a virtual manner. It was wonderful working with the team who were ready with the entire flow of the program from Day 1 and were able to execute it exactly how we had planned the sessions to be. The session held true to what we at PVMI stand for – Fun, Connecting and Enriching.
    Even in a virtual session they were able to maintain the mood as we have got used to during FocusU physical sessions. Last but not least, I would like to thank them also for helping us with such a beautiful video and posters of the interns. They were always available to help us make the video and the posters look perfect. The entire management of PVMI was really appreciative of what we had to show at the end of the session.
    Thanks to the entire team of FocusU who made it possible and helped us in giving a very differentiated experience to our Interns”

    "FocusU has been a truly wonderful partner to work with and our experience in collaborating with this fabulous team has been consistently brilliant! At a critical juncture for our organization, we were hit by the onset of the pandemic requiring us to truly be agile to convert our planned engagement from a F2F format to a virtual one connecting almost 300 colleagues. The FocusU team embraced this as a challenge and their sheer efforts to develop a virtual solution that would be eventually run for the very first time in our organization – the MusoMagic challenge – are praiseworthy and actually one in a million! So thank you FocusU!"

    I am writing this as an extremely satisfied and delighted customer. We at Zentron Labs have a very young team. Many of our team members joined us directly from campus over the last five years. Zentron is the only professional life they have experienced. We also have a multi-disciplinary engineering team, spanning the entire R&D and Operations spectrum of assembly, application, procurement, mechanical design, product design, optics, algorithm development, hardware and software design. Our challenge was to get the entire team working together as one, demonstrating a high degree of ownership and stretch. For this, we needed a program that was highly engaging and fun at the same time. Fun, since having fun is one of our values.
    I am glad to say that the team from FocusU, did a terrific job in delivering to the brief. The team was completely energised and highly charged up. We can see that the team bonding has gone up considerably after the event. I must specifically add that the professional way in which the program was conducted was truly noteworthy, including tools such as a video that captured the highlights being played back to the team almost real time. Thank you guys. Look forward to many more engagements.

    It forced me to learn and grow in spite of dealing with my busy schedule of juggling between work and a new-born back at home... you not only helped me understand new concept in merely 15 mins span to 30 mins., but also challenged me to think through different issues I feel, I should deal with. I should get them sorted mentally in my mind first than in real life... Thank you for helping me GROW my knowledge...

    On Behalf of GSIF leadership, I would like to thank FocusU team for the powerful team building workshop conducted last Saturday.
    The whole process of pre-planning, material delivery, organizing instructions, venue visit etc, was done seamlessly.
    As observers,it was amazing to see the energy rising with each activity and continued so till closure. The event was very will timed, the debriefs were very specific and applicable to work life, the execution team was very professional, yet engaged with our employees very well.
    Really appreciate Antara and team for such a fabulous workshop.

    First of all, thanks to FocusU team for all support and conducting memorable offsite.
    This is was the best offsite we ever conducted in last 4 years. Employees were really happy and sent appreciation to us. This is was not possible without FocusU team. Few of the employees have already recommended name of your company to their connects in industry which I think gives a feedback about your team.
    Rating will not justify the efforts of your team because of their effective planning & execution from prior to offsite and start to end, connecting with people in every activity with full on energy, emotionally touching their lives and the closure on the last day with surprise gifts like videos/photos etc. from your team to all of us.
    Special thanks to every member of the FocusU team who conducted this workshop for us.

    FocusU facilitated a 2 day 'Stepping into Coaching ' workshop for a group of us senior leaders from CGI. Their session was engaging and gave us insights on improving the effectiveness of our leadership. They ensured that the program was interactive enabling easy flow of thoughts and perspectives through out the program. I would recommend this program to anybody looking at growing as a coach leader.

    The enthusiastic team of Focus U has partnered with Avery Dennison India for about 4 programs within a span of 1 year spanning different audiences. While the Pixel Challenge helped us bring the team together for the reinforcement of our new corporate Values, the Celluloid challenge forced our young management trainees to put on their creative hats to demonstrate how these values affect their work. We have conducted several team building events at different locations for our off-site tours where activities like 'Geo Caching challenge' are a great medium to get diverse teams working together.
    Their USP is their agility, creativity in execution and ability to deliver under ambiguity. I know I can never go wrong with Focus U when I wish to conduct an impactful session that leaves my team members energized and inspired.

    My overall experience as a learning consultant was definitely perfect and I would surely recommend FocusU within my network. Content for the two series of workshops on Leadership challenge was apt for our new managers and added a lot of value. It’s truly a happy moment when your participants walk out of the training with positive experience and especially when they state that the concepts or stories were relatable to their workspace. Truly value your promptness and commitment throughout this journey and the Facilitator was without any doubt one of the most grounded and knowledgeable trainers I have met. Thank you for partnering with us and I am sure we will continue with this partnership in the future.

    Focus U has provided us excellent team building programs which are tailored to the needs of our organisation. They have succeeded in creating learning experiences which are specific and relevant to the particular needs of our organisation. Their facilitators allow attendees to interact, while learning skills and knowledge which can be applied to their individual roles.

    I found Emergenetics to be a tool that goes beyond slotting the team into straight jacketed boxes but rather helps us understand personalities basis their thinking and behavioural patterns. The tool has great application when it comes to putting together a project team or choosing which resources to pick for a specific kind of task. Within a team it can drive awareness of what preferred thinking and behaviour modes are and hence allows individuals to improve on the least preferred thinking and behavioural modes.
    The app is a great reinforcer and allows the team to share and collaborate among each other in a fun way! All in all – a great tool that I would recommend for any intact team to use to work efficiently.

    30th October 2018 was a day full of learning and experience with the FocusU Team. This was the first session conducted for our Leadership team where we learnt the concept of Growth Mindset & Accountability. As a People’s company, everyone knows and understands the concept, however the kind of activities and experiential learning programmed by the FocusU team added an element of excitement and gave us enough room to think and play around it.
    As one of the prime takeaways, we learnt the principle of See it, Own it, Solve it and Do it. Great effort was put into make the overall session very logical coupled with the de-briefs after summing up each activity.The session got wrapped up with a team picture and a short video of the experiences captured by the team in a nutshell. The TrueBlue India LLP team wishes you all the best for the future inventions in the Learning and evolving world of success.

    The Laughter Yoga session was wonderful. The session was very intriguing and exciting. The agenda was to make everyone feel at ease and completely keen to get involved and lose their inhibitions. Thank you FocusU, it was the highlight of our mental health Awareness programme. Something so different, fun and beneficial to staff stress levels and overall health.
    It was such a joy to have the trainer’s amazing energies with us and thanks for passing it on!!!!

    I have been working with FocusU team for a while now and their ability to respond to the brief in a precise manner is commendable. Every time there is necessity to do a training intervention, the first choice and the obvious one for us is FocusU and that’s primarily because they have understood our teams much better and the brief’s get executed seamlessly, in other words, FocusU is now an extended family in our business.
    Talking about the recent intervention of Holistic Wellness and Team Olympics, the enthusiasm and energy that the activities generated was exhilarating. Everyone really enjoyed the experience, taking part in activities they would have never dreamt of!
    On behalf of THE HINDU, I thank you for one more fantastic and an unforgettable experience for the team… Looking forward to another working opportunity with you folks.

  •  compnany logo

    Thanks FocusU team for yet another insightful and truly engaging program. I wanted to call out three specific instances that stood out for me in my recent experiences with FocusU team:
    There was a specific need for YCOM 3.0 induction plan to not only get the newly elected group to trust each other but also enable them to think out of the box. The design recommended by you and the speed of understanding the need ( multiple check points for YCOM vs single intervention) was a wow experience! The actual execution of YCOM induction – many of the members spoke about how much the first program helped identify each other’s strength and put their vision in action. Your Facilitator adapting his travel plan to ensure continuity and delivering the second half of the program as well is much much appreciated! I also wanted to call out the ILEAP experience – we brought in several changes in the design right until the actual delivery of the program. The spontaneity with which your Facilitators pulled all of it together while maintaining a seamless experience for the participants was incredible.
    Last of all, wanted to thank the team of Focus U who come in and work largely in the background, without whom the experience would have been nowhere near the perfection we witnessed at each event and program!
    Big thanks to all team members involved in these two projects in recent times!

    "Wanted to appreciate and acknowledge your and your team's efforts in conducting the 11 NHMP batches in the last fiscal.
    A few highlights of the year gone by w.r.t the session on Building and Leveraging Workplace Relationships – a) From all the concepts covered in the session, the concept of currencies got spoken about the most in the participant reviews. It has helped our participants to collaborate better with their cross-functional team members b) Your openness & promptness in working on the feedback shared with you as we were conducting the sessions is commendable. The change made in getting the participants to come up with their own case study and getting them to use it during the workshop has been a wonderful value addition in driving application of learning.
    Look forward to working together and further enhancing the impact of these workshops."

    "I was part of the Leading Change training program and would like to share how much I enjoyed attending this training. This is the second training program with you. FocusU has always made the learning’s more interesting. The topics are converted into activities and the learning from the activities are then discussed as topics which makes us to relate it in real time. The best part is there is no PPT in the training and the team is always courteous enough to take our inputs for any discussion. A Facilitator is definitely more knowledgeable than the people who attend the training. But the key is for you to hold your intelligence within yourself and get down to the level of attendees. This what makes you “The Trainer” and FocusU does this the best. I would love to attend any of the future trainings conducted by FocusU and I would also surely encourage my team members to attend any of the trainings conducted by FocusU."

    "The intervention that FocusU designed was brilliantly relevant for our Management offsite. It was even better in its flawless execution. The entire day, through a battery of varying exercises got us to smile, laugh, put our thinking caps on, connect but above all reflect constructively about some of our key issues. The facilitators kept the energy and encouragement going but knew exactly where to step back and allow the conversations to move forward unaided. We had great fun. We earned great insights and secured our feedforward plan. "

    "FocusU was a simple Google search for me. Having said that, there were other training firms whose details also showed up. But right from the time that I established my first contact with them to the time that I am writing this feedback, there has not been an instance where I had to follow up with their team. Extremely proactive, understands their clients needs and this is the best part - They customize the training requirements really well! Each activity that they conducted was done really-really well. Extremely innovative - the props that they used were very simple but the value that each activity added was outstanding! The best part was a power packed debrief. They are simply amazing to say the least. A Ten star rating isn't enough to summarize the value that they added to the participants who attended. I wish the team all the very best for all the efforts to deliver a memorable training program."

    “The team had a great experience at the engagement session! Would say this is easily one of the best sessions I would have attended in a long time – the mix of fun and messaging was perfect and can easily notice the change in attitudes on the floor. Well done, pls. convey my kudos to the rest of the team as well.”

    “We had an excellent training program conducted by the team @ FocusU. I found the team full of energy and enthusiasm. The sessions were led with tremendous gusto ensuring participation of each member in the amazing activities surrounding the program. The messages were driven home through a very intuitive process of games in practice followed by theory sessions throughout the two days. The process of taking immediate feedback and discussion with members resulted in participative and experiential learning. The MasterChef session at the end was like the proverbial “icing on the cake” with team-spirit and team bonding displayed in action. Overall, the entire supply chain finance team had a wonderful and memorable time with some excellent learnings for each and every everyone. The results post the programme were amazing considering that each and every member of the SCF team started implementing a common goal via collaboration , customer centricity, taking the portfolio at a high level through cross selling various products.”

    “I had an amazing experience for all four days and am sure it was same experience of my colleagues who attended the session. The concepts of bringing new ideas on to the table, igniting critical thinking, understanding the team in a better way through activities and taking the whole group along the course was amazing. Overall it was a fabulous and well-structured, object oriented training.”

    “We did a teambuilding program for our Global Team. We really could see a huge shift from the first day when people were hardly interacting with each other and post the program, we could see that members from all nationality were comfortably in interacting with each other and really did bond well. The FocusU team, through their structured, wonderful session really added a lot of fun and broke down invisible barriers. Also their logistic arrangement for material for activities is superb where we did not have to worry about anything.”

    "At the very outset, I would like to thank FocusU on behalf of my management team for having organised a memorable team-building program for the Teleflex India management team, and for our senior leadership team from APAC. As the leadership team of a fast paced medical devices company in India, we have an arduous, and at the same time- an immensely enjoyable challenge, of consistently out-performing the industry in India by a significant degree. In parallel, we have to ensure that the task of organisation and culture building continues, given our long history of having existed in India as a rather ‘placid’ joint venture company where any kind of change was an exception! Put both together, and you have the perfect situation of an organisation that really needs change management, and needs to build a team that works closely together with high levels of synergies. While team building is a long journey for any organisation that wants to pursue it in letter and in spirit, what team FocusU managed to achieve in a day for us was to act like a ‘catalyst’. You managed to run a deft script designed to make us think, understand ourselves better- as individuals, and as a collective, and helped us understand our individual and collective inflexion points that would help unlock our untapped potentials. All this- in a day’s work! Thanks once again for organising a workshop high on energy, and the ‘fun’ quotient: It resonated very well with our core value of ‘Fun at work’!"

    "A big thanks from the entire FCM team of Marico for conducting such a memorable workshop! The FocusU Team did a great job in creating an informal and casual atmosphere which was perfect for the kind of sessions that were conducted. Though the team has been working together for over a year, the team has obtained a greater understanding and has developed a renewed sense of bonding. The program was simple in design, energetic and stimulating with exercises that were both fun and informative. The highlight of the program was the sharing of life experiences which was conducted with remarkable ease and affability. Just while we thought the program had come to an end, we were pleasantly surprised with the recap video and photographs. It is safe to say that we have now been upgraded from colleagues to friends. This one-day workshop will not only go a long way in enhancing effectiveness at the workplace but has also created a strong human connect amongst the team. We look forward to have many such workshops in the future."

    "Thank you for giving us a unique opportunity to get to know each other and experience our team in a different set up and circumstances. Those 3 days spent in Palampur were awesome, amazing, full of laughter and positive emotions. Sometimes we forget just to hold on for a minute, look around us, enjoy life and see behind a colleague a human being with emotions, sorrows, crazy hobbies and undiscovered talents. Thank you for giving us a three-days-break and perfect conditions to grow together as a team."

    "Wanted to drop in a note and thank you for the fabulous activity conducted by FocusU team yesterday for our All Hands Meet. Not only was the activity extremely engaging, it also brought out the relevant de-brief we were looking for around change. Needless to say, the participants enjoyed themselves a lot. FocusU team was extremely professional in ensuring the set-up etc. was well in place before we kicked off… This is even more commendable given this was a last minute thing… Great work and do communicate our kudos to your team as well…" Rakesh Prasad | Manager, Learning & Development | India Global Delivery Center "I cannot praise the Focus team highly enough.

    "A fantastic experience. The way, it went was amazing and I was able to correlate many things on what I am doing right and also I was able to re-align on what I should be doing to stay in line with 'reality' :). In fact, I have already suggested to many others to make this training as a “must attend” training irrespective of their title group. Whether it was the trainer or the content I am not really sure. But I would say, I thoroughly enjoyed it and liked it - without any second thoughts! Great job done by the FocusU Facilitators – I would be eager to attend few more sessions if done by them on similar or other interesting training topics."

    "“Learning by doing” is the most efficient tool to improve the process and give opportunity to think out of box!!!!!!
    In 2 days session, I have learnt huge amounts of approaching the different ways of thinking and have enjoyed every single one of your session. I’d like to say what a complete “eye-opener” day had been for me. It truly was brilliant, I enjoyed every minute. It was exactly what I needed in the run up to such a huge personal & career development and I have walked away with the confidence and the determination to get on.
    Objectives were clearly stated from the start. I gained a greater knowledge of thinking on different ways and ideas. There are too many good points and case studies which gives a nice flavour to the workshop. The course was very relevant to my job and will help me in most aspects of my work as well as life. The workshop was very enjoyable and worthwhile from both a professional and personal perspective.
    The facilitator gave the learning messages across by breaking everything down into simplified sections as it was very informative and practical. It will also help bring about profound change in the way we interact / deal with our process or people. The knowledge imparted by the facilitator was immense, intensive and inspiring. The methodology used was unique. The sessions brought about innovation and creativity in the way we do things and the way we want to do things, in other words “Sharpening our Axe”.
    From start to finish, the standard of venue and food was excellent, facilitator lead an innovative and inspiring session to the group, keeping us busy all day to pack in as much as possible. By covering many aspects, including interactive activities, sharing personal experiences with each other really helped to cement our knowledge on the day.
    Thank you for giving me this opportunity to enhance my skills in such a vibrant learning environment. Now it’s time to put it all into practice. We left with the reminder that the edict to "Act locally but think globally" is still relevant."

    "I had heard rave reviews about FocusU from my colleagues and I reached out to them for team building activity for our year end party. It was organized on a weekend and when the employees arrived an hour late, energy and spirit was extremely low. I was very worried and concerned that the workshop might be an unsuccessful attempt in trying to ensure that everyone has a good time and also achieve the objectives of communication, trust and teamwork. However, all my concerns were put to rest with the high level of energizers conducted by Focus facilitator, which got everyone moving and interacting. The Cooking Challenge was the cherry on the cake. It demonstrated tremendous team work, planning and coordination, not to forget everyone having fun in the entire process.
    The day was full of energy, entertainment, fun, engagement and generated required enthusiasm. Thank you Focus TEAM for the power packed day."

    "As an important and defining step towards focused Leadership development at International Union Against Tuberculosis and Lung Disease (the Union), South-East Asia office, FocusU helped us design and conduct the initiation workshop with the Senior Management Team. We needed a competent, experienced, confident and flexible partner to pair with us on this journey and FocusU team performed with excellence. It was not easy to keep a group of highly experienced Doctors and seasoned professionals engaged through the two days. FocusU team did a great job navigating the group with confidence. FocusU team also added the element of colour and fun through the pictures and videos they captured. We all enjoyed and therefore learned through the process with lots of laughter, fun and new insights. FocusU is now working with us to conduct our Annual Staff team building meet with 100 staff members at Goa. Working with the same team, I am sure, will be a pure delight for all of us!"

    "We have never seen an activity which is so power packed and which generates loads of energy in the participating teams. The activity challenged the grey cells and the brawn alike since it was a perfect blend of creative and physical strength. The Juggernaut Challenge generated a sense of healthy competition within the competing teams. Each team took pride in the fact that their Juggernaut had to pass the test of durability, performance, utility and of course look pretty. While the challenge was on, we were pleasantly surprised to see the perfect coordination of the intact teams, the way the tasks got distributed amongst the team members, the way the elements came together to build the final cart, I mean, it was a treat to watch. Kudos to Focus team for coming up with such an amazing challenge and bringing us closer as a team."

    "It's always a difficult task to energetically engage the Sr Leadership team in team building activities. As most of them have been to many such workshops in past and the first feeling is “Oh! Not again”. My compliments to Focus team on creating such fresh approach and innovative activities. This completely gives a new possibility to Executive Engagement and team building workshops.
    For us this was the 2nd session with FocusU, and I was a little sceptical initially if the impact will be at the same level as of last time. My compliments to the lead facilitator and the Focus team for making this experience a WOW experience yet again. The day was full of energy, engagement and generated required enthusiasm. The learning in the process was natural and not forced. Thanks Focus team."

    "We have done similar exercises in past so I can honestly tell you that our experience with FocusU has been among the best. Let me get into a couple details: Pre-event discussions: FocusU team were very accommodating during discussions and negotiations. We made changes, additions and requests and they were honored with minimum discomfort. Ice breakers/energizers: Very rarely has an energizer been as elaborate and 'energizing' as the actual activity. Focus team conducted them so well that the entire team was super pumped after each one, even right after lunch. Activities: Focus Team kept it engaging and crisp. It was interesting to note that your prop usage was minimum (especially with the x-fit activity) but the impact, fun and learning was high. I also need out call out our appreciation for adding on an extra activity in the last minute. Thank you so much! Trainers: Focus Facis did a fabulous job of keeping the spirits high, breaking the ice and keeping the group together. I particularly like the way you mixed up the group with the 'pick your closest coworker' trick 🙂 When it comes to activities, the experience is only as good as the trainer so the success rests in the conducting and monitoring - hats off to you guys because we couldn't have asked for a better experience!"

    "I attended the “Leading for Success” training program and wanted to share my feedback. It’s a 2 day training program and I can say it was less than 3 hours of class room session and the remaining hours were full of practical session. The best part is, we were all asked to perform multiple activities and concepts were explained by observing us during the course of the activity. So there was no boring class room kind of lecture and the learning was from your own action.
    As I already informed, I have attend this training like 2 years back and I am sure I did not enjoy the training as much as I did now. Many thanks to you/ L&D for organizing this type of session and do pass on my special thanks to the FocusU team for an interactive session.
    I think it might be worth to spread the word that it’s an all-new training however just carrying the same old name, so that some old lads like me gives a try."

    ""LEADING FOR SUCCESS" – One other brilliant session. Thanks a ton to CGI for creating a platform to explore. I thoroughly enjoyed the two day session! And I would like to share my experience with all of you who are keen 🙂 The overall objective of this session is to give an insight on the introspection which gives a lead to handle you according to the situation, team, work culture, environment. It was beautifully captured through the MBTI® psychometric test results, which is a personality test to understand dichotomies. It's like reading yourself through the mirror!!! If the 4 dichotomies are captured carefully in day-to-day activities, we shall be able · to build trust and confidence · to understand, communicate and advance the learning style · to discover suitable opportunities · to handle constructive conflicts · a role of feed forward. I truly appreciate all the effort taken to keep us energetic through multiple activities. I would like to extend a special mention to the FocusU training team for organizing and executing the session so perfectly possible. I would recommend everyone to participate and benefit from the session as early as possible. Opportunity may knock only once. It is never lost. Someone will take the one you miss. "The best preparation for tomorrow is doing your best today." So guys ENROLL 🙂 Thanks again!"

    "We have been depending on FocusU for more than 6 years to conduct team-building sessions and exciting outbounds for our managers & employees. The SoapBox challenge done with racing cars brought an innovative challenge to the team. It is not just about building a car and decorating it. Or for that matter racing it on a small track by choosing right drivers, pit crew and cheer leaders. It is a lot more about team work, creativity, communication, performance, collaboration and finally the excitement of winning, all rolled into one. I would strongly recommend everyone to go take the SoapBox challenge and spend a day learning with and about their colleagues."

Although we had originally planned to try out one of the technology based team challenges, I am glad we went by your recommendation of the Dominos Challenge. The team had so much fun, while experiencing learnings from each other and the activity itself. The way the insights were tied in together by the Facilitator to the other session learnings during our offsite was truly splendid. In all, a great team building session with so many moments of wow, from the energizers, to the video sharing right after the activity and the team pictures shared at the end.. We loved it all. Many Thanks to your entire team."

    "I would like to thank FocusU team for putting up an excellent Sr. Management intervention (AGM – AVP level) -“Regional Executive Program” using their Leadership Challenge construct. The program was aimed to develop Yamaha leaders embodying Yamaha brand. The intervention included conducting a diagnostic and designing the workshop to suit the need of the target audience, which the FocusU Team did impeccably. The part that stands out for me is their ability to design the content and inclusion of relevant activities in each section which ensured the experiential way of driving the learning. The team was full of energy throughout and had amazing coordination, making every single session a power packed one!! Their USP is the unique FocusU way of conducting the workshop with elements of fun with learning. Here are some responses we received from our senior personnel:- 1. “Experiential Learning with latest concepts, these activities were novel and something that we have not come across earlier. Overall a near perfect learning experience. 2. “All the sharing of this session are very important. I am touched in many ways” 3. “Each and Every one of us were fully engaged throughout” 4. “The way the training program was structured was very nice- Essentially learning with fun and games, broke the ice with fellow colleagues from other departments” 5. “Very happy with the way it has been conducted and facilitated” FocusU team, we wish you all the luck and hope we have some more power packed sessions with you for our employees."

    “Our brief to FocusU was that with the large number of changes in the Regional Leadership Team of the CD South Branch at HUL, we need to really get to know each other, build trust and commit to the big bets that we have for our business this year. Being a cross-functional team with people so diverse – in age, backgrounds and experiences, geographically dispersed over 4 cities – this was crucial. They understood this and customized a day-long workshop for us which was so much fun and met all our objectives. I was super impressed by their ability to adapt to our ever-changing schedules and to integrate the activities with the setting (i.e. the backwaters of Kerala). Members of the team who have attended several sessions conducted by Focus before, couldn’t help but wonder how Focus is able to reinvent itself every single time and meet a wide range of objectives for teams of different sizes and backgrounds.”

We have realised that there is a ‘Focus’ way of working and one ends up experiencing Fun, Professionalism, Learning, Action, Achievement while achieving the outcomes of the workshop. The Facilitators helped us build our strategy for this year using Lego Serious Play which the participants thoroughly enjoyed. We could see that the facilitators had complete command over the facilitation technique and were even able to tailor it to suit our unique requirements. They were flexible, accommodating, understood the problem at hand and offered solutions proactively. On the ground, the workshop experience was exhilarating for all participants where some quoted that the time flew as they worked and had fun, we achieved the outcome and felt motivated. Above all a great team which has a lot to offer. All the best!”

The message of “collaboration” and “innovation” was brilliantly portrayed through this painting activity. The entire session was meticulously planned and executed.

The team has come back extremely motivated and charged up which was the desired outcome of the workshop. Various activities which were well thought through and executed helped everyone open up and ensured active participation from everyone.

    "Within just 2 minutes of our interaction with the FocusU team, we got convinced that our decision to go for new trainers will not be wrong decision. They explained the activities so passionately that in that half hour of discussion with them we were already day dreaming of our offsite day.
    Then the D day came and we met our 3 awesome Facilitators. They swayed us away from our daily work pressure with their warm and infectious smile and extraordinary energies. We did celluloid challenge and oh my god it was super super fun. For that 90 minutes we all were living our hidden childhood dream to be an actor or actress. What’s commendable is they imbibed our company values in those activities so everyone is having fun but not forgetting the values that we inherit. It was out first time with FocusU but I am assured this is just the beginning. Now people in the team look forward to activities because of the fun we had because of the Facilitators from FocusU. Hats off to the team for doing such a wonderful job and inspiring many others including me to take up the task of making others happy by doing great work. Once again a big thanks to all of you."

It is a difficult task to design an intervention for levels from an officer to an Associate General Manager, that too from varied backgrounds and locations. Your team's commitment, dedication and effective partnering with us in terms of understanding the organisational values & the desired outcome - have set unparalleled benchmarks as every batch passed by. Thank you so much for your efforts.
    It's really commendable to see how you all organize your efforts and inspired our team members to orient, channelize, present and pioneer. You were all truly amazing and demonstrated extra ordinary skills in all your activities, presentations and involvement. The way you gave tips with fun directly went to the participating employees mind and heart. In fact the last gathering of From Spark to Sparkling Reality - Coming Together and Making a Difference was a soul stirring experience for the participants. You truly uplifted the spirit of participants, and they were very energetic, enthusiastic and positively charged with a new perspective while leaving the venue.
    I am confident that these positive seeds will germinate and be nurtured to grow in coming times. Do keep up with your outstanding contribution and performance. Wish you all the best for your future endeavours."

    “I have never received such overwhelmingly positive feedback from each and every participant before for any other program! Even the typical critics came proactively to thank me for organizing such training. But the real credit goes to FocusU of course. Unlike typical training filled with slides, theories and handouts, FocusU brings in a different way of learning while enjoying participation. Their use of simple activities to relate with key learning points makes learning more effective. No wonder participants found it instantly convenient to identify key learning points and action plan at the end of the session. Moreover, the level of energy, positivity and enthusiasm the trainers exerted within the participants was brilliant. I believe FocusU India Ltd has more such learning interventions to offer which Unilever Bangladesh Ltd will be keen to explore. We look forward to building a lasting relationship with one of the most dynamic training solution providers. All the best to Focus for their future endeavor.”

They have the ability to connect the content and activities to the unique challenges faced by the team thus making the content all the more relevant.

This is one of the best, action packed learning and engaging team-building workshops I have planned. It was really important that FocusU needed to understand fundamentally as to “Whom” and “Why” this program was put together. Our objective was not only to have fun and bond together, but more so, set the tone for the team for what was going to be a very challenging year. Focus has done such a good job of seamlessly weaving our objectives into their activities.

I cannot speak too highly of their professionalism, organization skills and their ability to deliver an absolutely fabulous event for our company! They kept us fully informed right through the process and even took the time to ask questions on how to get the maximum benefit from the event to ensure we really had the best possible day! I liked the fact that they took time to review our company, find out about us and then recommend activities which would suit our needs and our organization right down to wanting to fully understand the purpose and reason for doing the event in the first place!

    "What started as a search for a training vendor on Google in 2012 has come a long way with several identified FocusU interventions over the last 2 years. We have had 8 custom designed interactions for channel partners to sales & staff teams. In each offsite intervention, we have achieved our stated objectives of Learning & Development - like Team building, Collaboration, Decision making in uncertainty, Drive for results, Shared vision etc. among a very diverse group of people.
    The experiential learning programs have immensely helped us in getting back learning’s to the work place. The methodology of engaging the participants has given an opportunity to open up & work together to achieve common goals. We have felt that our employees are more convergent, collaborative & motivated. The impact of such outbound programs have resulted in achieving higher sales productivity. The Facilitators deserve a special mention & appreciation - for the way they have led the programs in their unique styles. With a calm & focused demeanor, they have maintained high levels of energy & fun at all times in the programs. In the end, they ensured the learning’s were understood well! Overall, it has been a wonderful experience full of infectious & memorable moments. "

However, I can speak on behalf of every individual present that not only did the FocusU team exceed our expectations; they did a wonderful job in actually bringing together and creating friendships amongst a very diverse group of people. The FocusU team really put a lot of thought into each and every exercise, and at the end of each session there were only smiles and laughter amongst our team members. A special mention for the “Pixel Challenge” – I think it was a brilliant exercise and the end product, the painting that we created as a team, is something we all are very proud of!

The FocusU Team helped us build collaboration and creativity through the Celluloid Challenge, a movie making exercise. Additional ice-breaker sessions, on-the-go team photographs, move editing and awards all added to the overall experience and celebration as a group! The entire team at BMGF thoroughly enjoyed the experience of creating short films and watching our creation on screen! Not to forget, the enthusiasm of FocusU to keep up high energy and laughter around the room! Thank you for a great experience and we wish you the very best!”

    "The FocusU Team facilitated 2 four day management cum fun, pan company offsites. They were absolutely fabulous! They didn’t just overcome our initial apprehensions about such outdoor learning programs, their achievements went beyond our expectations. They helped achieve all our defined objectives: create employee connect with our strategy, vision rollout, facilitate meaningful team and pan company relationships and have A LOT of fun!
    Each activity they proposed turned out to be a success. The Domino activity was a particular favourite of all - it was fascinating to see a two hour activity bring out the best, and worst, in people. That made the self reflections very valuable. It is easily one of the most impactful group learning experiences.
    The entire Focus team was completely committed from day one. They are very thorough and professional, have a great can-do attitude and gelled very well with all levels of people in our organization. They have a great company DNA and its been a pleasure working with them.
    Focus, we are looking forward to engaging you again. Wish you all the best."

    "We need a high energy program which makes each member truly belong to the team”. This was the brief we gave to FocusU team. At end of the program we were glad we decided to go with them, because all the activities that the team did were high on energy with a specific focus in mind. At the end of the program we came out as a better team, knew so much about each other. There was lot of trust, bonhomie and 'can do' attitude at the end of the session. Thanks to FocusU for the excellent program they tailored for us!!"

    We chose FocusU for a day of fun filled learning for our coaches and facilitators. From the design stage itself it was a partnership all the way to create a program just right for the IndiGo way. The Focus team listened in carefully to understand the nuances and execute to perfection. Our objectives had to be met through play. The final experience was delightful – full of laughter and bonding. The Geocoaching activity was a memorable and powerful tool with many ‘A-ha’ moments directly applicable to any result oriented workplace. The facilitation was exemplary. Role modelling is the best form of creating learning and the day created an experience from which our own coaches and facilitators may evolve.

    We have been working with FocusU team for more than a year now. They have always delivered to the objective set out with perfection. They have always brought new ideas and exercises to help deliver the message and achieve the objective. Lego Serious Play for instance is an extremely powerful tool which we have used for team visioning sessions for teams both on business front and on team norms front. The entire exercise using LSP is engaging and helps brings out various aspects of discussion on the table in a non-threatening way.

The program was light, highly energizing and had plenty of Infectious memorable moments for Team DHL and Focus.
    Will we team up with these guys again? You bet we would. A special word of Thanks to all the Focus Team members for being a part of this wonderful Journey”

    FocusU team did a marvellous job for the IAMAI's recent conference in June 2012 at Lalit Srinagar. The "film making" workshop was a tailor made idea for all us CMOs who comment about agencies' creatives on a regular basis. The well thought out and well executed exercise was carefully coordinated within 4 hours, which is remarkable given that it involved ideation, scripting, shooting and even editing followed by judging. And I really appreciate the involvement of each of their four team members who had a wonderful sense of humour. Cheers and keep up the good work guys.

    On behalf of Tarayana, I would like to thank the facilitators of FocusU for the scintillating sessions of teambuilding and leadership skills. We commend their ability and skills in understanding the needs of the client and facilitating learning through fun and experiential activities. The exercises during the workshop provided us with an opportunity to reflect and assess our performance and enabled us to explore our strengths and weakness in working as an individual and most importantly, as a team member towards fulfilling a common goal.

    When I first saw your huge clientele that included companies from AT&T to Adobe,Deustche Bank to Ernst & Young,Nokia to Raffles Hotel, Apple Computer to Oracle; got a notion that do large companies keep coming back since you're the best at what you do, or have you turned out to be the best at what you do because large companies keep coming back? And to find out, appointed your company to hold a team building event for my leadership team and believe me that list will grow bigger as the FocusU team has certainly exceeded all expectation at our recent team building event at Goa. l can confidently say that "WOW!" is the impression your TEAM has left on our employees. The facilitators really hit the mark with their presentation. Their facilitation skills combined both learning and FUN and brought the purpose of the team building event full circle. It is our responsibility as Leaders at Collage Group to carry on our Culture and keep the SPIRIT alive and well. I feel as though with your team’s help we have successfully driven that point home with the 2011 leadership participants.

    I want to thank you and your team for a wonderful one day offsite on team building for our freshers. This is the first time we did such an intervention and I am very happy we chose FocusU to partner with us. The session has achieved its intended objective of driving the message of our core values, the need for team spirit, and has left the participants with a perspective about themselves that they perhaps did not have. And while doing so, it was tremendous fun for the youngsters. The day was planned very well, the takeaway sessions useful and the energy of the facilitators infectious. The approach you’ll used was thorough, conceptually grounded and very professional. Great work guys! The feedback we’ve got from participants has been very positive and enthusiastic with demands for more of the same! Best testimony I guess! We wish you all the best and look forward to working with you again.

    I would like to thank FocusU for organizing the team building in a short span of time which turned out to be a great fun filled learning exercise for the entire team. The FocusU team ensured the energy levels of the team remained high throughout the day. All the activities planned through the day ensured maximum interaction amongst all participants. Given that we also had our client as a part of this exercise, we were a bit anxious on how the event unfolds. But the team was able to handle a cross cultural team with ease. We could feel the difference in the attitude of team members right away, we went in as 3 different teams and by the end of the day it was 1 big team. The videos and photos captured throughout the day will ensure everyone remembers this team building for time to come.

    Thank you and FocusU for delivering a good quality training. I really appreciate the time management, level of expertise & knowledge of facilitators, the energy created and most importantly, which I found was definitely your differentiator - the course design and debriefing. All the training needs identified / specified were met. All the three trainers were very professional; the use of technology was also very good. In a batch of 96, they kept everyone together and focused as well - And all this in such a short notice. Thankyou once again!

    It was a pleasure working with FocusU. Right from the first conference call, their ability to understand what the client needs was absolutely on target. Our engagement with them were on two programmes- One for the Senior Leadership Team and the other for our Extended Leadership Teams. Within the available time, they did an awesome job of simulating the experiential learning and facilitating the sessions. The top five reasons as to why I would engage them again will be: 1. Ability to understand the customer and empathize with them. 2. They are willing to walk the pathway with the customer and hence the flexibility comes in as a huge relief in a world of stereotype, fixated trainers. 3. They carry out their work with absolute passion and it is contagious! 4. Willing to correct the course when required 5. Very professional approach and there is a great comfort dealing with them. They are in a very nascent stage in India, but it does not take away any depth in terms of the quality that they bring to the table. Wishing them the very best!!

    "The Fire walk and the Glass walk activity conducted by FocusU was excellent!! This event definitely displayed the concepts of teamwork and communication that we were hoping to achieve. Firewalk and glasswalk made the team realize that they can push well past their current mental and physical limits and help them break-through physiological barriers that may be holding them back from their true potential. The feedback was extremely positive from all involved and it was a great event came together well. Well done TEAM Focus!!!"
