RAF AIR CADETS
‘This equipment has become a leadership and team building ‘game changer, for the RAFAC. The quality of training and equipment that is now available to our cadets as a result of the Mobile Challenge Course is in stark contrast to the splintered planks of wood and rusty oil barrels that went before it. Challenge Academy provide a highly professional service supported by high quality robust resources that are fit for purpose and suitably pitched facilitation training. Everyone that has experienced it has bought in to the concept and there is genuine excitement about it’

St Benedict’s School of Performing Arts
‘The training day was carefully structured to allow skills to develop through warm-ups, simpler to more complex tasks and group review sessions. The trainer was engaging and inclusive and knew exactly how to get the team out of its comfort zone to work harder, faster and with improved results. A good time was had by all and the team left having made fresh discoveries about colleagues and knowledge about themselves’

I loved the ‘aha’ moments linking to business needs, management actions and leadership skills.I’m very excited about the potential impact the BOC can have not only in Fitness First but UAE.
