China is changing rapidly and constantly.
THE CHINA CULTURE CHALLENGE:
build your own skyscraper
This fun and informative business game, with three training levels, leads you across what you need to know about performing well in China.
Find out whether you and your team have the experience and wit to navigate this turbulent market adequately. Your knowledge and understanding of China will be quizzed and your experience put to the test during an exciting and challenging game.
HOW IT WORKS
The China Culture Challenge takes up to 4 hours and is played 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 (¥).
Each round there is time to “Reflect and Play”. Reflect: assess your business skills and conclude your own strengths and weaknesses. Play: Buy building blocks so you can actually build 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.
