About the Team-Building

This unique team-building opportunity allows you to take your whole team away for a couple of days to teach the non-techncial staff about the oil and gas epxloration, development and production industry whilst, at the same time, improving the quality of communication and bonding between team members.

The team works together on a series of exploration challenges and innovative exercises to find oil and gas in Dorset. The geology in Dorset is very inspiring and the facilitator, Peter Granger will provide brief instruction and each outcrop. The technical staff are encouraged to continue this teaching in small teams. At the end of the challenge teams are asked to present their evaluations, prospect ideas and possible drilling locations - but with one proviso - only the non-technical staff are allowed to present.

The team-build also includes a working oilfield model to demonstrate petroleum geoogy principles as well as a few fun exercises to help the bonding. A team dinner is arranged on the final evening.
