The Great Networking Game


THE GREAT NETWORKING GAMEIt's not what you know and it's not who you know but what value you can add that often makes the difference! Successful people have great networks. They don't know everything but they do know who to ask and how to help others get what they want.

This game is facilitated over 2-3 hours. The game can stand alone or it can provide a high energy and interactive start to conferences and all workshops where the outcomes relate to 'adding value to others'. A minimum of 10-15 people is required. As many as 500 participants can play the game as long as space permits. Specific technical and logistical equipment is required.

Delivery Methodology
The game is very interactive and enhanced with music, colour and frequent changes of pace. An effective cycle of learning is blended into the process catering to all learning styles.
Participants are encouraged to actively involve themselves in the game and the discussion at the end of the game. The debrief is designed to draw out key learning points for individuals and teams. Open discussions help each person to decide on why, how and when to apply what has been learned. At the conclusion of the game individuals are given the opportunity to expand on their personal experience through reflecting and committing to specific actions.
This approach provides individuals with the ability to change behaviours and attitudes and to transfer learning to their own work and life situations.
