CASE STUDY:

A not-for-profit Domain registration organisation

Objective:
Generate comfort and confidence in dealing with future market and organisational uncertainty.

Delivery:
Conference

Solution:
A whole day conference for all staff themed around preparing for future uncertainty. The set and stage were a full scale replica of the 72’ race yacht; the back of the main room was decked out as a ‘Yacht Club’ for meetings with the Trustees and on the ground floor a full size interior plan was laid down depicting life ‘below deck’. Keynote presentations, interactive breakout sessions, fun challenges and the finale were all themed around preparing for the next leg of a round the world yacht race. Content covered: Crew roles and responsibilities; the external environment; competing; cargo and strategy planning. Every delegate filled in their own ‘Competent Crew book’ with notes for future reference.

“I thought today was a really good day and built on so many of the important areas we have agreed are essential for the future. I loved that it was focussing on us being in the one boat and not internally competitive. It was an imaginative choice and delivered on all fronts. Beautifully organised and delivered. I would like to say thank you … for a great day."
