It was thumping drumbeats, thrilling camaraderie, and splashing good fun for #TeamISG Singapore during the Dragonboat Team Cup Challenge 2018 organised by trade supplier, MTM Solutions, and co-sponsored by ISG.
Held on 7th September, the team of 20 was thrilled to participate in a competitive dragonboat event situated at the scenic Kallang Riverside Park.
The seventh running of this year’s competitive dragonboat event also included a charity component in support of billionBricks. Through this event, teams fundraise to distribute weatherHYDE extreme weather tents to help save the lives of the homeless.
Despite the torrential rain, more than 200 other people from the real estate industry gathered together to watch the teams compete against one another whilst enjoying the company of industry peers. Some global industry players involved include CBRE, Cushman & Wakefield, Hassell, JLL, Turner & Townsend and also Gensler.
The 200 metre races were organised in five heats followed with a final competitive round against contestants from each heat. However due to the increased frequency of rolling thunder and lightning ripping across the skies, the event had to be ceased after the last heat to preserve the safety of everyone present.
Kelvin Hon, operations director of ISG Singapore said: "It was an amazing team effort and I felt that the whole team did really well. It is a great way for the team to head out, kick back, socialise and equally motivate and encourage one another – it is a true value of teambuilding.”
