Here’s what our clients say
My sceptical team was adamant that we didn’t have an artistic bone in our body. Simon gently coaxed our inner artists to the surface and in no time we were budding Picassos. Once we were let loose with the acrylics there was no stopping us and we painted three impressive canvasses worthy to grace any wall. We all loved the day and I highly recommend it to anyone as a team building exercise or just to relax and have some fun.”
Business Systems Manager
I really enjoyed the session. I thought Simon did a great job as a facilitator to bring people along the journey. I felt very supported even though we ended up doing something which would normally make a lot of people feel very nervous. I think the ‘building’ of the activities helped with this too – i.e. from a little piece of creativity on your name label through to a big painting piece - but with a group to work with was fantastic.

Many thanks again for a great morning. We all got lots out it and feel much better equipped to be facilitators who connect visually with our participants. Thanks again. Am looking forward to practicing my new graphic facilitation skills - and to our paths crossing again.
The brief was to help make our team event fun and interactive. And that’s exactly what we got! The “Taste of Tuscany” menu gave us more food than we could eat. The dishes were easy to prepare, looked great and were very tasty. Our chefs, Franchi, Simone & Alessio were really entertaining and went to a lot of effort to ensure we all had a great time”.
Customer Management Team
Just wanted to give you some feedback and thank you for Wednesday’s event in Melbourne. A lot of people have been letting me know how much they truly enjoyed the function, in fact the comments have ranged from ‘best Christmas party ever’ to ‘I’ve never had so much fun at a work function!’ It really was amazing, you guys did a fantastic job. It was fun and lively with so much excitement, interaction and energy in the room. I think it all worked perfectly and I
couldn’t be happier with the result. You and your team were absolutely fabulous and I have to say, exceeded all our expectations.... by far!!!! Thank you so much, please pass on my best
wishes to your team and I hope to be ale to work with you again in the future.
Just a quick thanks again for our event. As soon as I entered the room I was impressed with the atmosphere that had been created. The “getting to know you” was a great way to get the group motivated for a fun social night ahead. Our chefs for the evening were fantastic - Entertaining as well as informative! The girls were in stitches most of the evening and having the three men being so much fun certainly was one of the main contributions to making our event a success. The night was much more than just a cooking experience. The food was outstanding. There was enough variety to cater for everyone and no one had an empty belly at the end of our meal. I would not hesitate in recommending Visualfunk to other colleagues and will certainly be in contact again when the opportunity arises.
Thanks so much, and please thank Lucas too for a wonderful day on Friday. The day was both valuable and enjoyable. Your energy, style and humour was very engaging and enabled the whole team to get in touch with their amazing creativity, to have fun, to step outside their comfort zone and create their very own masterpiece. I would highly recommend you to any team looking to experience a team day with that extra special difference. For us it was a great way for people to get to know each other better and to bring our organisational values to life in a creative way. The fact that we all now have such colourful and meaningful artwork to hang in our office is a constant reminder of an amazing team day. Thank you for making it seem effortless, I really do appreciate how much hard work goes into delivering something that works so well.
Human Resources Manager
I just wanted to thank you and Krissy for last Friday. It was a great success. We had such a great time and I have had some fabulous feed back. Once again many thanks you were great at hosting the evening and getting everyone involved during the day (not that we needed much of a push).
Thank you for the afternoons event. The team thoroughly enjoyed it. The activity pushed the team outside of their comfort zone and proved that we all have the creative ability. I have spoken to our HR department regarding the afternoon and will pass on details as discussed.
Regional Corporate Accounts Manager
Team feedback on our recent Boot Camp is in and the favourite activity of the two day event by far was the ‘Team Masterpiece’ that you facilitated. Many participants were very unsure to begin with but it didn’t take long for you to gain their confidence and get them actively and cheerfully involved. The team interaction throughout the session and sense of achievement at the end was simply outstanding. And it was a lot of fun! We look forward to hanging our Team Masterpiece in pride of place in the office. Thank you!
Australian Operations Manager
Just wanted to thank you again for the efforts you put into helping us pull off a really successful day. It was great to work with you and we’ve had so much positive feedback - it is really quite overwhelming. I think the mix between some inspiring speakers and your interactive challenge really helped make the day. So well done.
The Spastic Society
The day was excellent and all enjoyed it. Both Chefs were very good and made the day enjoyable. I would have no qualms recommending Visualfunk to all of the GB teams. Well done.
Business Improvement and Strategy, Gallageher Bassett PTY LTD
Just wanted to say a big thank you for presenting your workshop last Friday. We all had a great time and it went off really well. We will spread the good work around GIO so hopefully some more work will come your way!
laims Product Design Customer Development
Visualfunk provided brilliant facilitation breaking down the barriers many of us felt with our artistic abilities. We all had a great day rediscovering the artist inside and linked it back to how we work together as a team and what we aim to achieve. Brilliant day!
Environment & Sustainability Officer
I wanted to write to you to say thank you for making our Planning Conference a huge success. After two days of the serious business it was clear the group was ready for a little fun! Everyone enjoyed the activity immensely and we had 100% participation which is rare and all feedback received was totally positive and it’s all people are still talking about. It definitely topped off the conference and made it memorable and put everyone in a great frame of mind, not to mention it makes my job a lot easier as it’s part of my role to arrange something that everyone will enjoy. We look forward to working with your team at Visualfunk again in the future!
I wanted to say a big thank-you for your facilitation and workshops at our conference last week. Your facilitation at the conference, helped keep the “energy” in the room – something which is hard to achieve – especially in the “grave-yard” shift directly after lunch. Thank-you for also “stretching our staff” so that they can learn to think creatively. It will be interesting to watch them put the things that they have learnt from your workshops into practice.
Sanitarium Development and Innovation
Our team building exercise was superb from start to finish; seamlessly linked to the themes of our planning conference, the sessions were energetic, stimulating and the results were amazing. It is without doubt the best team building session that I have been involved in and I would have no hesitation in recommending Simon and his team to any other organisation.
Simon did a fantastic job at getting even the most reluctant participants to translate their ideas and values to the canvas. In a supportive environment, he got us to put aside preconceptions of our own artistic abilities and the activity really brought together people who hadn’t had much contact previously. It was an extremely fun day that the team still talks about regularly and I would highly recommend Visualfunk to anyone.
Professional Services Manager
I would like to say that everyone at the workshop thought it was great. In fact I can almost guarantee that you will be getting more work from us in the future. You did a great job. You’re attitude and approach was perfect. Thank you for your efforts.
National Sales Manager
A huge thank you to Visualfunk for a creative, productive and above all FUN day! The team enjoyed the process immensely. I thought that Simon broke down everyone’s creative barriers really well and everyone got involved and totally forgot they originally thought they weren’t creative. I would highly recommend Visualfunk to anyone looking for a fun, creative and effective teambuilding session.
Consumer Insights & Strategy Manager
The Visualfunk facilitator joined in on the laughs and his communication skills were excellent. Instead of just explaining the activities we were doing he actually showed us what to do. I thought he was excellent at getting everyone involved and ensuring that everyone felt comfortable with the activity they were doing. The fact that he had a laugh with the group eased him into facilitating us.
Marketing and Communications
I would like to thank you again for the Tantalising Tuscany experience that we had this week. It was just what our team was looking for and was the absolute highlight of our offsite. It was so refreshing to do something so fun and unique and the facilitators Simone and Filippo were just fantastic. We have all been using our new found skills this week at home. Thanks again and we are already looking forward to working with you again later in the year.
Vice President Asia Pacific
This is the very best team building exercise I personally have ever experienced. I actually gained a closer relationship with a couple of the group I had previously had problems building rapport with. Thanks so much Simon, I believe you have found your calling, not just in creativity and facilitation but bringing a whole bunch of people together that would not normally associate. Thanks again for a wonderful experience.
QLD Management Team
We needed a creative and exciting way to bring two very different groups of people together. Visualfunk designed an experience that really broke down barriers early - helping our youth mentoring program get off to a flying start. Simon and his team took 14 teenagers with cerebral palsy and 14 adult mentors from the ING Foundation and brought them together through the experience of creating artistic masterpieces. Simon is a natural at helping people relax into the experience of doing something that for many was completely out of their comfort zone. But it is in this space of risk and creativity that the team is formed. Great job Visualfunk!!
The Spastic Society
Wow! What an impact our 2 days with Visualfunk has had on our team. The team is constantly thinking outside the square for business improvement ideas. This is an absolute strength to this team and Sanitarium and we are already seeing the business results. Well done Visualfunk and we can’t wait for our next session in April.
