Teamwork and communication skills with Shelterbox Australia
A Shelterbox Response team is made up of highly-trained volunteers that may have never met each other. They come from varying backgrounds and different countries. Clear and concise communication is essential in a disaster situation but also can be problematic due to damage to infrastructure and the remoteness of the areas in which they work. This ShelterBox exercise is designed to show the importance of developing team roles and communications plans whilst remaining task-focussed and calm under pressure. It’s also designed to be fun! I hope you will join us.
