Teams apply business skills playing the role of a news team
Making The News…for two to three hours teams will literally create "front-page news", with a team building challenge that goes beyond the headlines and gets to the real story of your conference messages. This fun, fast-paced and energetic team building challenge will take your team out of their comfort zone and drop them into the world of newspaper publishing. The task sounds simple.
All the teams have to do is create the front page of a newspaper that reports on the day's conference. But the teams will have to do much more than just get the scoop. They will have to name their newspapers, complete a number of articles, create a cartoon, design an advertisement and even write a 'business forecast'.
This will be a powerful shared experience that will get your delegates thinking and talking about where the business is heading - and one that will be remembered long after the event.
An engaging solution to consolidate your conference content or explore pertinent business issues. Making the News focuses collective creativity on whatever is relevant to your company, such as managing change, visualising the future, reaffirming company values or intelligently questioning policy and practice. Good project management is required to meet tight deadlines throughout the program. Each team’s creation is displayed at the activity venue and can be taken back to the workplace to form a roadmap for future actions.
This exercise often asks people to project news into the future. It presents a useful vehicle to explore elements of your own CSR statement: predicting 'tomorrows news' provides a great sounding board for participants to explore their impact on the environment and what steps can be taken to maintain a committed CSR policy.
