How it works

In this business simulation experience, each team takes the role of a rafting company hoping to lead a successful ‘first descent’ expedition down one of the world’s great rivers.

Teams must quickly learn the ropes and develop a strategy. They then embark on an (in-game) 15 day expedition down the river, where they aim to earn ‘feel good factors’ and ‘food cards’ by completing various challenges along the way. Ultimately, the team which can adapt to this exciting challenge, completing their expedition successfully and with the highest net profit, will win.

While it might seem quite simple, concealed within the game is a clever mechanism that requires teams to assess their understanding of customer satisfaction. To be successful, they must acknowledge how to value it and how to achieve it.

During the planning and execution stages, teams are also deliberately supplied with more information than any lone person can manage, so effective information management is crucial in creating the best outcome for clients. Further still, participants must also balance their budget to ensure the best customer experience is delivered while remaining profitable. All in all, River Runner might seem like a bit of fun, but the experiential learning runs deep.

Learning Outcomes

Change and Growth

The effectiveness of teams is always in a constant state of flux. Teams grow, they shrink, the dynamics change. To keep teams moving towards their optimal state, we have devised a set of experiences that helps manage their performance. We draw on the power of leadership, empathy, cooperation, and problem-solving to help deliver change.


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.
