Overseas Expedition Delegate

…successfully gained promotion and more able to deal positively with stress and time management

“The trip to Namibia helped me realise the values that are truly important to me. I had time to think about myself and work and how I would, should and did, deal with different styles of management and leadership. I didn’t realise how much the trip had helped me until I came back home, to put it simply it was an amazing journey both physically and mentally.”

Personal Impact

…business conversion rates improved through enhancing personal impact and communication skills

“The course has opened people’s minds to looking at different ways of interacting across departments and their requirements. It has created far more effective means of communication because people are now able to empathise. The course was particularly appropriate with regard to our new product development project. It has helped a lot in getting different people’s input across a range of skill sets from production to technical to marketing.”

Leadership Development

...leaders have become commercially focused and developed strong, practical leadership skills.

“It’s been really good. I’ve been able to understand how some of the behavioural and commercial elements of leadership can be used in any situation so it’s easy to transfer back into the workplace. I would definitely recommend the programme with Farscape. It’s really supported our leadership development.”

We shared the adventure of a lifetime and one which I hope I will be able to do again. It was an experience which I think anyone would benefit from – I’m still finding out all of the ways that I have grown and developed and can’t wait for the next adventure!”
