All you need to know...

After an initial briefing and introduction from our KDM Event Manager, your teams to embark upon a voyage into the unknown with this table top based strategy and communication challenge.

Allocated into teams of 5-8 members, each team member receives a ‘persona’ for the event along with that character’s observations, thoughts and opinions on the shipwreck situation.

'

The Details..

As the teams travel around the island (via map tiles) they will continually need to assess the potential merits of heading in one direction over another, earning food, water and supplies by successful planning. However, death can come quickly on this shipwrecked island, so all the team fail and have to restart the task should any of the team members succumb to the following dangers: 

  • Crocodile attack, Swamp poisoning, Starvation or thirst

One thing is clear… good communication is definitely an art. This task will challenge your participants to be concise, accurate and to think through a changing set of circumstances to succeed.   

The team that is successfully rescued first will enjoy the accolades of their colleagues and a KDM winner’s medal per person.

Please see the following selection of images taken at a recent Cast Away team building event – strategy and communication are key to escaping the island!

“Graeme, Rich & Matt did a great job and brought a lot of energy to the room. Very well organised! Informal feedback from the players was very positive. If we get any further feedback from the participants will let you know. ”

University of Nottingham , [5] star rating

“The members of my team really enjoyed the Cast Away activity at the Away Day and joined in enthusiastically. I spoke to Craig before he left to say that I had been really pleased with all of my communications with KDM and that every part of the process had been dealt with very professionally. I think Craig explained how the event would run very well on the day, dealing professionally but empathetically with one team who were determined to take the wrong route on the Cast Away map several times! ”
