Adventure Development

We take a different approach to the corporate away day than the average outdoor adventure company. We understand that businesses can no longer afford a ‘jolly’, and instead they are looking to reap the rewards of learning by experience, reflection and goal setting.

We have teamed up with learning and development company Leaderful Action to ensure that your event is designed to meet your specific learning and business requirements. The facilitators at Leaderful Action have impressive professional and academic qualifications, as well as wide range of profiling reports to accelerate learning. These include:

  • Insights Discovery® for individual and team effectiveness
  • EQ-i 2.0 for measuring and developing Emotional Intelligence (EI)
  • MTQ48 for measuring and developing Mental Resilience
  • Belbin® for understanding and allocating team roles

They also have extensive experience working with leaders, managers and teams at all levels, across all sectors. We combine this with our knowledge of the outdoors, health and safety and adventurous activities to create dynamic and valuable challenges.

What Our Customers Said...

Our aims and objectives were 100% met.  Seeing the team’s profiles explains problems and feeds solutions.  Very enjoyable too – thank you!
Wyn Giffiths, Director, Pinnacle Group
Taking time out from the office environment for training is always a hard decision when that time is often billable to clients. The short programme delivered by River & Ridge will provide benefits to the “team” and to the company longer term, having demonstrated how focusing on EI skills can improve performance of individuals and the group. The blend of outdoor exercises were fun but importantly provided an ideal setting to quickly highlight how EI was used well and how focus on specifics can improve performance – importantly long term after the session.
