Exercise Deep Heat

What is Exercise Deep Heat?

Exercise Deep Heat is an event where participants can gain an insight into what it’s like to lead teams, in a pressurised but safe environment, applying theory to practical and complex situations.

The overall effect is designed to develop an attendee’s self-awareness of their influence in group and individual situations as well as their self-confidence. The exercise has a humanitarian aid theme running through it where participants work in a neutral environment to better identify learning points.

This exercise is not physically demanding so potential attendees should not expect to be run ragged through the day, the exercise can accommodate attendees with disabilities. Much of the day focuses on practicing leadership skills within a very supportive environment.
