Rapid Response Command Tasks

Rapid Response is a self-discovery day where participants learn about global issues and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), understand how to contribute to society and make a difference, and understand how their business might “live out” the SDGs going forwards.

The participants work their way through a series of challenges / disaster relief scenarios in teams whilst trekking.  Each team has a facilitator who will patrol the challenges, brief the team and watch / assess how they do.  The challenges could include getting water to an area devastated by fire or building a bridge destroyed by a recent earthquake.

Once each team has successfully overcome all their challenges for the day, they trek back to the rendezvous point (along with their vital cargo – dry and intact) to be debriefed, given time to reflect and receive feedback and recognition.

Rapid Response is normally a one-day activity – but it can also be run in a multi-day format.  It requires an outdoor location – the bigger, the better.  Each day is 8+ hours.

A Rapid Response day caters for 20+ participants.  The participants are split into small teams of c.8 people so each person has the opportunity to lead a task at some point in the day.

The skills gained include:

  • Strategic thinking
  • Communication
  • Problem solving
  • Collaboration
  • Leadership
  • Agility
  • Resilience.
