Overview:
Inspired by the story of Phileas Fogg’s adventure, ‘Around the World in 80 Challenges’ is an exciting journey across the globe, featuring 80 challenges representing different countries around the World.

With no rules and time against you, this enjoyable shared experience requires teams to race through 80 completely ludicrous activities, collecting air miles for their successes. The team with the most air miles at the end of the event will be crowned the winners!

With a large variety of tasks at varying levels this event offers a little something for everyone and encourages teams to work together, plan their time and skills wisely while acting quickly. Bon voyage! 

Format:
The event starts with each team receiving a team pack that includes details of the 80 challenges. As there are no rules to this event, teams need to manage their skills, time and decide how to tackle each challenge (whether five heads are better than one?). The day finishes with all teams coming together, where fun prizes are awarded to the winning teams.


The Objectives:

  • To demonstrate issues related to team dynamics, problem solving, time management, organisation, and leadership under time constraints
  • To demonstrate that teamwork gets better results than working alone
  • To practice priority and time management skills
  • To stimulate creative solutions

Results:
With more challenges than can be done within the time, will the team use their time and resources to the best of their advantage – of course they will… won’t they?
