Pierre Devriendt, Senior Consultant and Trainer, Staff & Line Management, France

I recently used 'Lost in the Wilderness!' with a 10-person team. There was a very lively atmosphere where everyone felt committed and gave their very best to contribute to a relevant and shared decision. My appreciation of the game is excellent, particularly because the goal is not - as in most games of this kind - to make a list of useful things to take on a risky trip, but rather to make a decision about whether to go or to stay. In short a simple but powerful activity.

Julia Roberts, Internal Trainer, MHR

We use 'Lost in the Wilderness!' in our line manager assessment days; the best things about Northgate activities are the ease of facilitation and the learning outcomes.

Michelle Hardwick, Learning & Development Trainer, Weightmans

We used 'Lost in the Wilderness!' for our new Apprenticeship cohort. It was high energy & fun!

Georgina Bullock, L&D Assistant, JBA Consulting

I used the Northgate 'Lost in the Wilderness!' activity on a Graduate Networking Day and it went very well!

Anand Lobo, Founder and Chief Mentor, Epignosis

I loved the 'Lost in the Wilderness!' training activity. The participants were initially indifferent - they thought it was like their MBA game Lost at Sea, but once they realised that they had to come up with a plan and not a list, they were enthused. I am looking forward to using this again whenever I get the chance.
