Illustrate the concept of team synergy with Beyond the Valley of the Kings, a challenging adventure simulation that focuses on decision making under pressure and the importance of team-building. Participants experience first-hand the advantage of working as a team when they realise that the results achieved as a group out-measure those of any one individual.
An exhilarating hot air balloon tour seemed like the perfect way to see the wonders of Egypt. As you and your group gaze out at the breathtaking views of the valleys far below, a sudden gust of wind cuts the tranquil excursion short. Soon the balloon is uncontrollable and crash-lands in the endless white Saharan sands.
With blinding sand storms and a temperature drop of 40 degrees likely, can your group make a plan for survival and strive for rescue?
Beyond the Valley of the Kings is an excellent exercise for strategic planning teams and those who must think quickly in urgent, high-stakes situations.
