The theme “breaking barriers” goal is to enable the newly set of elected officers to know each other and be comfortable with each other, work as a team and make everyone participate and share their ideas to achieve the team’s goal to win.
Two inspiring and motivating leaders of PHASE, BENJUN BUAT – 2019 President and ROUNELL DEMAISIP – 2019 External VP, initiated the event.
Some highlights of the event are the different set of games and some prepared food. The participants (officers) are divided into two equal groups, team A and team B. Each team needs to come together, discuss things among themselves and work together towards the realization of one common goal. Goals have to be the same. Every team is formed to achieve a predefined objective and it is the responsibility of each and every member to contribute their level best and accomplish the assigned task within the stipulated time. Team management activity ensures that all team members work together on a common platform for a common purpose.
