Exeter Business Network Members Sampson Hall “Oil the Wheels of Industry”

Sampson Hall

The Castrol global vice presidents, including the senior vice president, enjoyed the delights of the Camel Estuary as they tested their cohesion and communication. The client brief:

“I want an activity that: involves everybody; is more than just an outing (e.g. simply a bike ride); does not require much, bus/car travel; requires team effectiveness (that’s the theme of the week); contains moments of lack of clear solution and/or changing resource/aim; requires resource deployment decisions, requires some idea generation, gives opportunity for self-imposed constraints (innovation is a current theme and, within that, avoiding premature evaluation is a factor)”.

Sampson Hall designed a bespoke exercise to challenge this experienced and influential group both physically and cerebrally. The team included the functional heads of all Castrol’s discrete disciplines and had flown in from all round the World.
