How it works

In Bean Around the World, teams play the part of coffee traders managing their supply chain. This business simulation game puts participants at the heart of the complexity in negotiating supplier relationships and ever-changing customer demands.

Teams make money by buying coffee from suppliers, trading with other syndicates, and then selling their coffee blends to the customer (hopefully) at a profit. The experience covers an in-game period of three years, with the winners being the syndicate which the most cash at the end of the third year.

This trading game is sure to stimulate and energise any conference programme and is highly effective at helping to generate fresh ideas and approaches to participants’ day-to-day work. It captures the essence of issues like short-term success versus long-term strategy, risk management, win-win negotiation, managing supplier and customer needs within a complex supply chain, and the power of good information gathering.

Learning Outcomes


Improving collaboration across a team is probably the number one way we can help to improve a team’s performance. If you don’t communicate, you can’t collaborate. We start with communication and get it flowing, then get everyone working together. We have found that creating long-term change in the way teams collaborate can be as simple as getting them into a creative frame of mind. Whether the team task is to work together or compete is up to you.


Our experiences to identify and bring out leadership qualities revolve around either creative and collaborative practices or competitive challenges. These tried and tested techniques delve deep into team dynamics and how individuals respond to them. We have also developed a core set of highly effective interactive business games. Our interactive games mimic real-world scenarios but with a bit of fun thrown in for good measure.
