Can you take the heat, crunch the numbers and use your buying power to be crowned victorious?
Teams will be issued with a start-up loan to invest and then with the fast pace associated with the Stock Exchange, they must begin to trade. Keeping their eyes on the ball, teams will be offered shares at various prices from 20 companies across several industry sectors.
The real fun begins as the share prices begin to fluctuate. Share prices are displayed and altered live on a giant trading board. The person trading on behalf of each team will wear a brightly coloured trading floor jacket to aid identification.
As the event goes on, the goal posts will move through a series of world and economic changes, disasters and scandals. These are gradually presented to the teams in the form of newsflashes (presented on a large screen), newspaper releases, emails and phone calls from the trading desk.
Teams will have to analyse the information that they have been provided with and use it to formulate their business strategy, being careful not to put all of their eggs in one basket.
Lasting from 1 to 3 hours, Stocks & Shares is a fully flexible team building event which is both great fun and mentally challenging. It can be run as an evening event or as a standalone traditional team building activity.
We are not trying to make any comparison between trading and gambling...however the team might also enjoy one of our Casino Night events!

- All event management
