Student Feedback "I recommend this workshop for everyone who likes activities and practical learning. Teamwork, leadership and effective communication are essential skill sets that are required in the corporate world out there and this is a fun way of learning and understanding them." "This workshop was not just physically challenging but required strategic thinking and it forced us to move out of our regular thinking process and think outside the box. It was a great way to learn about leadership, communication and strategy."
