Over the course of three days, participants face physical, mental and creative challenges designed to take them out of their comfort zones – in situations very similar to those which arise in the business world.

You will be tasked with problem solving and idea development, using your communication skills and initiative to motivate yourself and team members through demanding and unfamiliar situations.

You will be pushed beyond your limit; inspired to go that extra mile and ultimately achieve things you never thought possible.
