At some point in our careers, 1 in 3 of us will run our own business. Those of us who do, often talk about the buzz we get from it, the sense of achievement we feel when things go well and the fun we have along the way. And yet, all too often, the way we approach teaching and encouraging enterprise does not get any of these elements across.
This is where BoomBizzTM is very different.
Inspiring people to see and do business differently, BoomBizzTM is a fast paced, hands-on, energetic business simulation which has a proven track-record at encouraging enterprise and business skills. Used within a wide variety of settings and situations, BoomBizzTM has the capacity to be effective within organisations, schools, community groups and prisons.
BoomBizzTM is an innovative simulation which challenges participants to:
- Work together as a team, making effective decisions - fast!
- Manage their purchases of raw materials
- Manufacture high quality products to their customers' specifications
- Sell them to the customer
- Monitor business performance
- Make improvements to their business to enhance profit
- All within strict time constraints
The result is usually fast, often furious and always fun!
Delivered by business owners who have considerable experience of working with entrepreneurs at all levels, typical sessions take 2.5 hours to play and can accommodate between 15 and 175 participants at a time (facilities permitting!).
