Our clients make it happen!
We’d be nowhere without our clients. They represent an amazing mix of products, businesses and cultures, but they all have one thing in common. They “get” that when you take care of your team, the business takes care of itself.
Our Clients Are Our Best Ambassadors
This is what they say…
“I would like to express CFI’s extreme appreciation for the manner in which your guides handled our companions’ program in Banff…We are very pleased with the high quality of the work, the excellent creative input and dedication provided by all of them. The program was a huge success.”

Christiane , Professional Education, Hoechst Marion Roussel
“Steve Hobbs was an excellent facilitator; the exercises were challenging, thought provoking and insightful, and made us a more cohesive and effective team. Our group gave the Team Building Exercises top marks on our meeting evaluation form.”
Larry , VP & Advertising Sales, Readers Digest
“Thank you for your excellent leadership and trip planning which made our company back country trips a real success. Your company handled every aspect of our trips in a very professional manner.”
“On behalf of my client Novartis Pharma Canada and myself, I would like to thank you for writing a wonderfully successful scavenger hunt for our group. I understand from my on-site staff that Susan was terrific to work with, the client was very happy with the result and everyone had a great time. Thanks for making it all possible and making us look good in front of our client.”
Angela , Program Manager, Wynford Motivates
“I really liked the way you and Les approached every Agenda item. You two were enthusiastic about everything and always smiling. This body language really was infectious and helped to break down the pre-Retreat attitude I (and others) had. As you know, we all know one another quite well, so we didn’t need ‘icebreakers’, we needed enthusiasm for the task and you brought that to the sessions. ”
L. Sullivan, Government of Canada
“Thanks. I should say well done! You have received rave reviews from my colleagues. Everyone seemed to have a great time and they were very impressed with the coordination of everything. Will definitely keep you in mind if we do another event in Calgary/Banff.”
Vanessa , North American Payment & Loyalty Purchasing Manager, Shell
“I would not hesitate to enthusiastically recommend this “playshop” to anyone looking for a powerful teambuilder/energizer. The session flew by and the outcomes were well worth the time we invested in it. Mike has found the perfect balance of science, art and spirituality – a difficult task indeed. All afternoon staff were commenting on how much more they felt connected to each and the organization. The stress we were feeling with only 5 working days left until students arrive evaporated and was replaced by energy, enthusiasm and excitement.”

Principal: The Edge School For Athletes
“Recently I participated in the full day CSI challenge offered through Experienca. The entire group of 13 enjoyed it very much and are still talking about it two weeks later. We all learned some very interesting things about each other. As organizer of our team event I was responsible for booking the day with Trent Schumann. He made the process extremely easy and it was a pleasure working with him. At the last minute Trent was asked to do an introduction to team work from an organizational effectiveness perspective and a debrief of the day. He took this request in stride and performed the task with ease and confidence. I look forward to participating in another event with Trent and his team!”

“Judging by the feedback I have received the team day was very well received with learning’s around each others leadership styles, communication and working together as team members. Most of the group was still talking about the team day several days later which speaks for itself. Thank you and we look forward to working with Experienca again in the future.”
Cliff , Suncor Energy
“Just a little note to say thank you. You both did an amazing job last week: the challenges were fun yet meaningful; the discussion allowed everyone to participate; and almost all of our diverse expectations were met. I know from talking to all the people here that they really took a lot from all the activities. I really appreciate all the effort you took to make sure that our experience was tailored to our needs, plus – now I know how to Flambe!
I hope that we can work with both of you in the future.”
Kaya , BSc
Science Alberta Foundation
“I wanted to pass along my sincere thanks for the impressive high tech scavenger hunt that you facilitated for our group from Enbridge Pipelines in August. The many puzzles, challenges, problems and riddles that you wove together for our competitive teams kept them hustling down to the final whistle. Both you and your team were very organized and enthusiastic which greatly enhanced the experience. The diversity and creativity of the hunt allowed all team members to contribute utilizing different skill sets lending to a collective sense of achievement. Since the event I have received a lot of positive feedback from our team all sharing the sentiment of how much they enjoyed the hunt. In fact, I think my only complaint would be that our team didn’t win. Thanks again and I look forward to more Experienca events in the future.”
Morgan , Enbridge Pipelines
“Many thanks to you and your team for organising such a fabulous team building workshop for our Ad Sales team in Bangkok. The theme of the offsite was team building with focus on working in a highly competitive environment, changing the rules of the game and focus on new ways of doing things and the workshop truly delivered the promise
The activities were well thought through and it was a bonding and learning experience for the teams and people from different locations to work together on interesting activities which would “challenge the thought process” and get them to think outside the box and stretch themselves to do things differently.
We had great feedback from the teams and they said that this was the best team building workshop they ever attended.
Kudos once again to you and the team and hope to work again in the near future.”
Vivek , Executive Director Marketing, Asia Pacific, Turner Entertainment Networks.
“Thank you for organizing the Urban Scaventure hunt for us! Once again, you and your team have done an outstanding job in coordinating the activity for us. We had a blast!!
I received great feedback from our group, it really brought out the team factor and made us think “outside the box”. This was the perfect activity after a long day of meetings.
I especially want to thank you for customizing the program to meet our needs; I know it was a bit difficult to work around our crazy agenda.
Thank-you once again and we look forward to our next adventure with experienca!!”
Nancy , Shell Chemicals Americas Inc.
“I would like to express my appreciation and gratitude for your excellent leadership and planning of our recent teambuilding events in Banff. As this was our team’s first teambuilding session, there was quite a bit of apprehension, mixed in with excitement, as the day approached.
Your organizational skills and challenging scenario set out for our CSI program were second to none – everyone had fun trying to out-smart each other.
Our evening spent “working for our dinner” at the corporate Ironman Cheff Cooking poriton of our day was truly exceptional and a wonderful bonding experience for the whole team.
Our team still reflects back on the entire day with smiles and nothing but positive comments.”
Sanders Lee, Executive Chairman, Hopewell Capital Corporation.
“We wanted to take this opportunity to thank you and your team for the wonderful event that you put on for our Staff Appreciation Day. We appreciated your professionalism and friendliness as well as how your team interacted with us and worked to facilitate the event in the time allocated. All who attended had a lot of fun and found it to be a great team building event. Here are some quotes from our staff:
“A wonderful way to interact with your co-workers; mentally and physically.”
“… very well planned and a lot of fun. All the tools provided, the helpful hinds and direction given the the individuals at each crime scene were great, not intrusive. Just the right amount, delivered without giving anything away.”
“… good team building. I would love to do something like that again.”
“It was great fun.”
Thank-you again and hopefully we can work together in the future.”
Dana , MacPherson, Leslie & Tyerman LLP
“[We] would like to thank you for organizing such a fabulous event for our annual team building day. The Scavenger Hunt was so much fun for all, we had a great time navigating through the streets of Calgary with your intricate clues. The feedback from our staff was that it was a great time. They found the activities both challenging and fun. It was a great day for us to get to know one another better and in different ways as well as to go outside of the box for some of the challenges. Your staff was terrific to work with. They were fun, outgoing, helpful and very organized.
Thanks again for a fabulous day and we will certainly use our company again in the future.”
