Event Information

Two teams have to communicate by emails and by holding meetings in order to achieve their shared goal. Neither team knows what the other is up to – though they do make assumptions, and these can be fatal!

The objective, for both teams, is to plan routes around a number of pubs that will maximise their joint score of points. But just how long will it take them to realise the vital point that the tasks they’ve been set are slightly different?

They have two methods of communicating – emails, using a single computer placed between the two groups, and face-to-face meetings every 30 minutes. At the meetings only one member of the team can speak – and there’s the added task of communicating details of each other’s flag! Teams submit their plan and the computer provides results and an assessment – plus a (revealing) transcript of the communications!

" The Kaleidoscope Team were superior to most I have experienced. They were very professional but also friendly. They gave excellent feedback and gave us detailed analysis about what had happened through the event."
