    It was a good opportunity for me being a new comer in the field of HR. Either I participated in activities and interactions with guys fully or not it doesn’t matter to me because I learnt a lot from them. I captured my weaknesses which I’ll have to improve and will. 

    Rubina, Kanwer and Suleman, I say special thanks to you. I didn’t even think I was being observed by these guys but they did and advised me on how to improve my skills.

    Thanks a lot to all.

    An experience I had never expected to be soooo memorable! What a spirit of community & fraternity all participants demonstrated, thanks to the facilitators.

    The activities made us come out of our comfort zones & bonded us in a way never imaginable.

    I don’t take back memories but rather bonds that will last an eternity.

    In terms of HR, this networking will help us professionally in terms of exploring best practices.

    One of my greatest experiences and adventures ever and a memory that will never be forgotten. Connected with old & new people on a whole new level. Best fun activities that inspired friendships and teamwork in unconventional ways.

    Thank you all for everything.

    Ehab Sajjad,

    The claim truly stands true, i.e. "An experience of a lifetime." 

    Loved every moment of the experience. The idea was not to lose or win but rather and most importantly to show up. To face the fears and try an attempt to overcome these.  

    Every moment was a new path to self exploration & every exercise was worth attempting. 

    Keep up the good work! 

    Maria Abbas,
      

    These 3 days with all these new people I met and can now call my friends has taught me the beauty lies in living in nature, something incomprehensible to me before. 

    I have learnt resilience, teamwork and caring for each other beyond yourself. I’d like to give a special thanks to PSHRM and Karavan Leaders for giving us truly the most beautiful memorabilia to take back home.

    The greatest moment I ever had! Fun, enjoyment, adventure and most of all great learning. Learned teamwork skills, negotiations within teams, motivation and decision making. I loved the HR Boot Camp where I found humble, caring friends and lots of adventure. I would love to come back and participate in the Boot Camp again. Kindly continue this PSHRM.

    These four days of my life are going to be a part of unforgettable memory for me. 

    All of these combinations of direct and indirect learning, all the fun we had, mountain climbing, trekking, raft building was the most amazing thing of the trip. 

     The amazing people I met and in a span so short became very good friends.  

    Thank you.

    The moment I see a donkey anywhere in the world, ill recall all the memories of this amazing tour 

    Hats off to the entire team organizing this event. It was ideally planned and executed! All activities were framed towards learning, dealing with organizational problems & issues, team building, change in tough times, handling issues keeping in mind others feelings.  

    I personally enjoyed the whole trip!

    An extremely rewarding & fun experience.  

    All the activities had a learning lesson and that taught us a lot. I have discovered quite a lot of things about myself, made a lot of friends that will be long lasting. 

    Will miss it all & everyone.

    It was a wonderful experience, challenging & thrilling at the same time.  

    Survived it and gained a lot of self confidence when it came to pushing my mind over body decisions especially when we went for hiking & ended up dancing in front of the boot campers & judges.

    Loads of fun & got a chance to meet a lot of good human beings having HR as a common factor amongst other things.  

    Good HR Guru exposure & experiences shared making us feel like a close family out for a camping adventure. 

    Looking forward to keeping this family in the future. 

    Best of luck

    This Boot Camp has really made me realize the importance of challenging myself and adapting to change, no matter how difficult. The experience was phenomenal. I met new people and learned a lot about listening to people and the struggles that everyone has faced in the past. Thank you so much, I will definitely take what I have learnt to the workplace.
