Dragon's Den - Outdoor Pursuits
Ideal for graduates but great for any team.
Would your staff be able to deal with our unique approach to the TV series Dragon's Den? We have put together a simple format for your team to have a go and see how they would cope with sweating it out in the boardroom - presenting their idea to our very own Dragons. In the spirit of our outdoor adventure ethos we'll give your staff the opportunity to participate in one of our activities before setting off to produce a presentation for their business idea that will set Leicester Outdoor Pursuits Centre above its competitors.
Once all the pressure is over and presentations are done the groups can celebrate on one of our activities before we announce the winning team. Key aspects of the day include:
- Research skills learning about the outdoor pursuits industry
and Leicester Outdoor Pursuits Centre
- Teamwork skills including managing a project and delegating
keys tasks and roles within the team
- Cooperation and communication bringing together different
contributions to a final outcome
- Presentation skills and keeping to a specific brief
A typical package would be as follows:
Your job is to come up with a new activity or enterprise for the Centre.. Key points to consider:
- In keeping with the Centre's ethos

*Groups will use laptops to work on (either supplied by us or they can use their own). They can deliver a PowerPoint presentation but are warned to make it interesting. Groups are also given flipchart paper and pens. An Instructor is there on standby should they want other items for their presentations i.e. activity equipment, art and craft materials etc.
*Notes are allowed for the presentation and all group members must be involved – this will be part of the assessment.
