The Firing Squad

Firing Squad team building gameThe Firing Squad is inspired by BBC’s The Apprentice. It’s a team building event which achieves the impossible: it puts the fun back into being fired…

“Sir Arthur” is looking to hire someone new in his organisation. He doesn’t want just any old rubbish: he wants the best.

In teams, you’ll be given a series of lively and enjoyable tasks to carry out: your chance to show Sir Arthur what you’re good at before he tells you what you’re good for.

At the end of each task, the winners receive a treat, the losers an ultimatum: talk your way out of trouble, or you’re fired!

As Sir Arthur so cleverly puts it, “Winning is all about winning.”

Have you got what it takes?

This activity is very adaptable. Exactly which tasks people are given is something we can arrange with you. We like to keep them short, sharp and fast moving but longer challenges can also be incorporated. The Firing Squad can also become an “umbrella” under which a variety of other team building exercises take place. To quote Sir Arthur once more, “What I say goes except when it doesn’t. That’s when it stops.”
