Northgate says...

"A great activity with multiple uses - project planning, leadership, teamwork, interpersonal skills and much more. Crucially, presentations are a real focus as most teams 'show off' without taking account of the needs of their target audience - their potential sponsors."

‘Antarctic Challenge’ and ‘Houston, we have a problem…’ are both great training tools that we find highly effective.

If you're looking for an activity that facilitates teamwork, communication and problem-solving, then 'Antarctic Challenge' is the one for you! We used this training pack as part of our Early Career Professional Development Away Day to focus on developing all these skills. The pack has high quality materials and resources, which engaged our colleagues and supported them in completing the task. It tested communication and time management skills as all members of the team had to work together effectively in order to present a solution. Overall, a brilliant training pack- highly recommended!

'Antarctic Challenge' is a great training activity! I've used it for years with executive groups and really appreciate the realism and complexity they have to deal with.

'Antarctic Challenge' is great for practising working together as a team on complex projects. The last group I ran it with was a group of Management Associates and they loved - and hated - it at the same time! A tough challenge - it resulted in pitches to a senior leader panel and went down very well.

I completed a training on planning with Shell Brunei using 'Antarctic Challenge': the participants enjoyed the story and dived into the game with confidence. As a trainer I was impressed too. They took it really seriously and felt a great sense of achievement after completing it.
