Rattlesnake Canyon - Effective sales and team management

Profiting From The Railroad! Knowing how to build effective partnerships and having the conviction to do so, despite hurdles, provides a significant competitive advantage. Our team building event Rattlesnake Canyon brings both these priorities to life.

The Corporate Team Building Experience

RC-Session-Participants tradingAs the dust settles, it appears that a gathering has converged down in the valley, outside the General Store in Rattlesnake Canyon. Despite the howling winds on the plains, it is clear that the Sheriff is passionately speaking to the crowd about something of great importance.

The Settlers and Merchants of Rattlesnake Canyon have been offered a challenging proposition. The locals have four weeks to secure all the materials necessary to build a railroad as well as acquiring a camp and supplies for the workers.

This fast-paced powerful program forces participants to face the challenges and rewards of real market scenarios. As the sights and sounds of the great frontier surround them participants maximise profit through a series of buying and selling transactions where rapidly turning your inventory is key.

What The Experience Brings To Life

Participants achieve an understanding of throughput of both goods and services and an appreciation for the value of less tangible resources such as ideas, information and trust.
