Generous Giving

Values determine behaviour. If you want your team to behave well this activity is a powerful way to tap into their values and demonstrate that with ingenuity, courage and a worthy goal, teams can achieve extraordinary results.

Teams are given a £100 cash budget and told to come up with a way to distribute every pound in the most generous way possible.

Each team is filmed throughout and scored on the number of people positively impacted, the creativity of their idea and the impact their initiative has on the community.
