HOW IT WORKS
The China Culture Challenge takes up to 4 hours and is played live, with 2 trainers, in teams. It is suitable for 6 to 15 participants.
The game consists of 3 rounds, getting more complex on the go. In each round the trainers provide you with relevant key knowledge by means of presentations and videos. Your team capabilities are then put to the test in quizzes, scans, business challenges and pitches.
Correct steps and smart decision-making will be rewarded with money (¥) and buy building blocks for your own skyscraper! But save some money too because the game can have some surprising turnarounds, just like in China-business…The team with the highest skyscraper after 3 rounds wins!
Discover your strengths and weaknesses in this upbeat game and find out whether the sky is the limit!
WINNING IS GUARANTEED!
Because your reward is a fresh set of business skills, so needed in today’s China.
