Program outline

Trading Post is a supercharged game of information gathering, haggling and building trust - an excellent icebreaker or conference interlude. The ‘trading post’ in question is the wild and lawless town of Dodge City in the 1860s - a time of great opportunity, and yet where disaster awaits the unwary and the ill-informed.

How It Works

Possibly our most versatile activity, it can be played by 12 to 800 people during a conference, pre-dinner, or after dinner. It is particularly successful as an event that will break down barriers and unite groups while reinforcing the key principles of negotiating.

Learning and development outcomes

A quick and clever activity where teams negotiate and trade to maximise their returns. Although this is a competitive exercise, the most successful teams are those that collaborate with others to build win-win outcomes while at the same time focussing on their own bottom line results.  During a review process, winning strategies are shared and pertinent learnings are applied to the workplace.
