Motivate your team

Fast-paced, high risk environments, share many common factors with the corporate world. Success or failure relies on core principles like leadership, resilience, teamwork, high levels of trust, and an honest reflection upon mistakes made and lessons learnt. Give your team a head start through insights into a unique career of critical lessons learnt in some pretty extreme environments. Lessons that they can apply to everyday, and to corporate life. Your audience will be engaged in an interactive, relaxed and memorable day.

Motivate your team through stepping into a different operating environment and banking some key messages from your day.

Get alignment in your team through some of the global back story. Alignment is key - always welcome robust discussion, test and challenge new thinking but strive for alignment.

An extraordinarily different back story

Learn through story. We will weave your deliverables and entertain your group by picking from a plethora of global adventures which could include;

"Coping in Crisis" - Learnings from being banged up in a Tanzanian Jail

"Baby Kahu" - The kidnapping of a baby, a 10 day drama that gripped the nation and a 3 million dollar ransom

"Having clarity of purpose" - Planning and executing a hostage rescue in minutes. An "explosive story" and a team driven success

"Teamwork & mate-ship" - 6 months in a conflict zone. A small isolated team of different nationalities with little support, working to save lives & make a difference

"Doing the right thing" - Challenging the status quo when lives are at stake. A simple concept - put people first
