Imagine if I told you, you didn’t need to be in a boardroom, using a white board to strategise and solve problems?
Imagine if I told you that you could find your answers in the street.
When you’re looking to create something new, fresh and memorable for your people, you don’t need to look as far as you think. There’s inspiration right outside your office. If you know how to find it.

This is how the experience unfolds....
Choose a Question.
Each person chooses a question they would like some fresh thinking. This can be a mix of questions or a question a team needs an answer to..
Tune up your senses.
Members of the group are guided through a series of short exercises that are designed to “tune up” their senses so they can tune into themselves and the world around them.
Gather + Share.
At the end, the group gathers together in a facilitated strategy session and, with the help of a trained Facilitator, shares their experience by reflecting on what happened, what they learned and how they might apply the insights and inspiration back to the question they brought with them
Look for Answers.
Each person then sets off on their own Quest in search of insights, ideas and inspiration that will help them answer their question, paying attention to the signs, signals, clues and invitations they receive from the streets.
This is ended off with a facilitated strategy session over lunch.
You will also receive notebooks, pens, as well as a memory stick, on which we will capture all of your ideas, insights and steps forward from your strategy session.
afternoon spent applying insights and ideas that emerged from the morning WalkshopTM so
