CASE STUDY: Icebreaking for a new team – American Express 23 April 2019

American Express's Talent Attraction & Development manager wanted a three hour activity to help a new batch of 25 trainees to bond and have some fun on the second day of their induction week in July 2018. I customised my Newsroom Bootcamp to focus on key workplace skills that would bridge the gap between university and workplace --no-nonsense deadlines, attention to detail, listening to others but making a decision too. Talha Sheik, one of the participants, wrote to me a few days later: "Your training was very helpful - within this week, I've faced situations where I've had to 'talk more', and 'speak my mind' and I've used what you shared with us. Best of all, it didn't feel cheesy or vague, as you would normally expect when people tell you 'I can make your life better'!
