Comments from Participants

“To the great rafting team. I don’t really know how to explain such a trip to an outsider. It has highs, lows, pain and pleasure. But at the end of the 219.5km paddle, it was such an exhilarating experience that the tough sections were quickly forgotten. It was an experience of a lifetime. The Leadership coaching is a must for anyone in business. I have been to many business courses, and this was the best I have been to by far. It is a must for anyone wanting to improve their business. It is SOOOO good I will be sending my key staff on the next one, and doing it myself again next year. I can’t thank Matt, Ellis and Mike enough.”  Andrew Taylor

“The experience from the rafting trip has given me real clarity and perspective on how to implement different ideas and processes to get the best out of my business. The success is speaking for itself, giving me more time to focus on the business. When is the next rafting trip guys?”  Wade Bachmann

“When I first started the expedition I was debating if adventure and business would mix, by day 2 I was very surprised how open and receptive I was.  I was very relaxed during our rafting trips, and yet very alert and responsive to absorbing the business ideas, experience and wisdom from both the course leaders as well as the real life experience from my rafting pairs. I can honestly say I left the trip with a real sense of personal development, but more important, I left the trip with more ambition for my business as well as enthusiasm to develop my personal growth.  The peace, the sense of calmness and relaxation on the river mixed with the surrounding elements and views has developed an anchor in my mind that has associated the personal business development with a memorable moment.  This all may sound a little hairy fairy, but believe it – it’s true.”  George Roberts
