Our business simulations are fun and engaging experiential learning activities where participants deal with challenges similar to those found in the workplace. An effective simulation challenges our knowledge, emotions and skills, just as any work environment would.

In simulations, participants experience the common tasks of communicating with customers, managing budgets, developing stakeholder relationships, changing markets, etc. Participants work as individuals and in teams to consider and discuss possible solutions to the challenges they face.

They offer instant opportunities for feedback and reflection in a way that traditional classroom or online training cannot. This allows for immediate insights into our behaviour and the impact it has on those around in our workplace.
