Based on the global, smash-hit television series The Dragons Den, The Dragons Lair is a team building exercise that packs both fun and challenging exercises into a single day of activity. Participants are split into teams and encouraged to conceptualise, research and create a brand new product idea that can be brought to market. After this painstaking and time sensitive effort, these ideas must be presented in the mighty Dragons Lair before an assorted collection of industry experts!
The format for the day is fairly straightforward, as participants forge teams and set about creating their conceptual idea. The processes and challenges involved build towards a dramatic climax in the Dragons Lair environment, where their idea will be presented and appraised in a forthright and often brutal manner. Here are the key elements involved: -
• Planning and Research: The key to developing a viable product idea is good quality research, as this helps you to appraise the market, demand and unique selling points of your concept. This requires teamwork and leadership, as each team member must fulfil a clearly defined role and works towards a collaborative goal.
• The Presentation: Before your team enters the oppressive Dragons Lair, you must bring your research and information together in a slick presentation. No stone must be left unturned as you develop your written presentation, both in terms of your own preparation and the inquisitiveness of your expectant dragons!
• The Delivery: As anyone who has ever watched the Dragons Den will testify, the process of pitching to potential investors can turn established businessmen into quivering wrecks! The Dragons Lair is a similarly intimidating environment, where business ideas are placed under the most intense scrutiny. Be sure to select your most slick and confident presenter for the challenge, as otherwise even the most innovative ideas can be trampled beneath your feet!
With imitation dragons, innovative themes and qualified instructor to help you bring your creative vision into life, The Dragons Lair will inspire your team to communicate, collaborate and execute swift decisions under immense pressure. Not only this, but it will also enable them to recreate a once in a lifetime television experience that will stand the test of time.
