Major Global Financial Company - Asia Senior Management Conference
Objective - The objective for the group was to redefine the ongoing strategy for the region. Think8‘s role was to facilitate this process to ensure that the objectives were achieved. The process involved small and large group interaction with presentations over the two days.
Outcome – “I believe we have achieved a considerable amount over the past two days. There is now a lot of work to do to ensure a successful implementation. This is the first time we have used an external facilitator and I would like to thank Ray for his work in guiding us over the obstacles without expressing his own opinion, a trap that facilitators often fall into”.

Major Regional Hotel Group - Singapore
Objective - The objective was to create a higher level of communication and teamwork between the senior management group and department heads. The basis for the three days split 3 x 1 day was each person completed the MBTI which produced, as it invariably does, detailed information on how individuals interact and how departments interacted between themselves and the senior management group. An appropriate comment arose when the Marketing Director unprompted said “Now I understand why Marketing and Finance don’t always see eye to eye ”.
Outcome - “ We have discovered a lot about ourselves in terms of teamwork, communication and problem solving. We now have a much clearer understanding of how we can move forward to create both a much improved work place for our staff and that must lead to an even better guest experience. I would like to thank Ray for leading us through this fascinating and fun filled project.”
