IET YPS Malaysia Teambuilding 2022 in Penang

IET YPS Malaysia Teambuilding 2022 had been successfully conducted. The aim was to foster stronger bonds among YPS members and let them be inspired and motivated through sharing sessions and exciting outdoor challenge activities. It was held from 27 to 28 August 2022, in Penang. The event consisted of two parts, namely, “Part 1: Networking and sharing sessions” and “Part 2: Teambuilding challenge at ESCAPE Park”. A total of 16 participants attended, consisting of 11 YPS members and 5 On Campus members. Other than that, two IET Malaysia Main Committee members, Dr. John Tan and Dr. Jeen Khor, attended as special guests.

The teambuilding kicked off at 3pm sharp on 27 August, with a briefing given by Peter Ling, the organizer of the event. A simple ice-breaking session was conducted next. No physical teambuilding had been done in two years due to the COVID pandemic. Hence, the teambuilding became the first time most YPS members met face to face. The ice-breaking session was filled with laughter and joy, as participants got to learn more about each other. Then, there was a mini foosball competition, and the top three teams were given small soft toys as prizes. The participants also played various board games, while chit-chatting and networking with each other. After that, Dr. Ivan Ling, the current YPS chairperson, conducted the YPS Malaysia Monthly Meeting (August). He expressed his gratitude toward the members for making the effort to come for the teambuilding event. Among the items discussed during the meeting were event updates, phases of team development, reasons of holding a physical teambuilding, upcoming opportunities for YPS members, and YPS 2022-2023 goals. The goals include forming strong team bonds among committee members, re-engage with the On Campus groups and their advisors, encourage fun and engaging activities, work closely with the local network, re-establish local On Campus recognition awards, and reconnect with other local professional bodies. After the meeting, Ts. Daniel Vong gave a sharing session on “Introduction to Professional Registration”. This is followed by a sharing by Dr. John Tan on his IET journey, including how IET has changed his life and how his experience had led him to win various awards over the years. He also gave out several signed motivational books during his talk. Dr. Jeen Khor talked about the opportunities for young professionals in Malaysia and how they could be leveraged to transform one’s life and build an outstanding career. Day 1 ended with a BBQ dinner session.

On day 2, the participants woke up early and prepared breakfast, before departing for ESCAPE Park. Once arriving at ESCAPE Park, the team was greeted warmly by the park facilitator who gave a briefing and provided each participant with an ESCAPE Challenge Card. She then explained that a medal would be awarded if the participant completed at least three Adventureplay challenges and three Waterplay challenges. On a side note, ESCAPE is a theme park with exciting rides and games hosted in a natural environment. ESCAPE re-introduces the play and values of yesteryear so to inject reality into a world overdependent on an isolation-inducing electronic lifestyle. Through “Low Tech, High Fun” challenge activities completed in a team setting, synergy and team spirit are achieved. ESCAPE Park is also the home to the world’s longest waterslide and the world’s longest zip coaster. It was no doubt a wonderful outdoor teambuilding experience, which was non-existent in virtual team meetings.

Positive feedback was received from all participants, and they hope more exciting events like this would be organized in the future.
