Case Study - Yahoo! sees The Big Picture

In order to celebrate their 10th anniversary in Hong Kong, leading web portal Yahoo! engaged Team Building Asia to top off their celebrations. Held at the popular casino resort MGM Grand Macau, the team of engineers, marketing and technical staff completed Creative Juices and The Big Picture.

A showcase for Macau, The Big Picture involves participants being divided into smaller groups, each responsible for painting two canvases. They were given plans for what’s to go on the canvases but there were elements missing – to maintain excitement. One canvas is drawn and the other is blank.

The Yahoo! teams had to liaise with their neighbours to find out how to complete their canvas, get the right colours and join up the lines correctly. All this networking took place, while at the same time team never knew what the whole painting would look like.

After some tactful paint swapping and creative artwork, teams made their way outside to have a coffee and complete the back to work debrief. At the same time our team of event marshals put together the canvases for the unveiling.

Shortly afterwards, participants came to witness their fruits of their work as the canvass came down to the explosion of party poppers, streamers and their own cries of excitement and amazement.

This huge art installation is now proudly on display in Yahoo!’s corporate offices and each participant was given a smaller souvenir glossy copy of the specially created artwork for Yahoo!’s very special celebration.
