Mi Swaco Build-A-Bike team activity in Houston TX Mi Swaco a Schlumberger Company based in Houston Texas, brings together twice a year, the best of the best involved in the Program for Accelerated Career Training (PROACT).

M-I SWACO is an industry leader of products, services, and expertise for managing your drilling, completion, and production operations. Whether drilling offshore West Africa, managing drilling waste in Kazakhstan, managing the production of a North Sea reservoir or working in mines in Wyoming, our customers depend on M-I SWACO to help them complete their job on time, at cost and without undue challenges.

Most of these young engineers just finished training at Mudd School, they actually learn to make mud for drilling purposes. They started the day with a Creating a Team Culture program. The focus of this workshop was exploring personality temperaments and the strengths of their team members. They finished the day with the Build-a-Bike ® program.

M-I SWACO Combines Fun Class Team Building with a Charity Team Activity in Houston.

Amber who organized the day for this group, especially liked the group sessions we did for the 28 leadership principles. Topics covered included building rapport, reducing and resolving conflicts, gaining enthusiastic cooperation, and building strong confident leaders. 

This is exactly what this group needed! — Amber, M-I SWACO

Benjamin is the manager that oversees this group. He was involved from beginning to end and was a very thorough judge. This group who works very hard proves they also play hard, so energetic, funny, outgoing, and focused. The group was moved when they realized the children were coming to get the bikes.
