What they said:
"We haven't felt like a team, until today"
Tessa, sales team
Who they are
This global medical technology company provide innovative healthcare and medical solutions. The south east region sales team is pretty new and has grown from two to seven people in less than a year. The product they sell is complex and the market is competitive. Team members come from diverse backgrounds, and all work remotely. The team want to spend time together away from the office to get to know each other.
How do we communicate with each other, so that we can work together better?
After a morning of making shelters and fires in the woods to connect everyone, at the afternoon campfire workshop the team came up with a range of practical ideas of how they can work with technology better, introduce monthly calls, and share information and knowledge more effectively.
Client: Think Productive
Location: Nature reserve, London
Group size: 10
What they said:
"Being outside four walls really helped us, as an already close group, to connect in a deeper way. Being in nature gave us permission to be more open and honest, with ourselves and with what we were hearing.”
Elena Kerrigan, MD, Think Productive
Who they are
Think Productive transform the productivity and wellbeing of leading organisations around the world, through time management and productivity training and workshops. They are a fully remote team.
How can we communicate better as a team?
What can we learn from that to help our clients communicate better internally?
The day starts with immersive listening exercises around the fire, to build empathy and awareness, and then we use nature as a reflective metaphor to help the team answer their questions and make meaning together. The day prompts the leadership team to think about how to communicate change proposals in a more collaborative way, and showed a really clear need for a new training product - which they have since created.

I often hear a lot about strategy, but rarely get a chance to discuss with Dave (the CEO), it was great to be able to make my voice heard and have a decent conversation with him, without notifications and a crammed meeting schedule getting in the way!
Ryan – Team Lead
An amazing day, we were thoroughly inspired by the whole experience
