Defensive Driving

Safety first in Shakespeare country
VENUE: The beautiful villages around
CLIENT: Large national employment agency
EVENT: Element of an internal company conference
The event was staged to form the second day of the conference based in a country hotel outside Stratford.

The morning was given over to a lecture by the Advanced School of Motoring on advanced driving skills and road safety, which was accompanied by a video film presentation.

After a buffet lunch the group was divided into teams for the afternoon competition. This took the form of a car rally following a set route through the Warwickshire countryside. The teams had to solve cryptic and photographic clues plus undertaking various challenges including tests of the driver’s skills. The morning lecture had been a useful reminder of careful driving which was important for this event.

There was great competition and rivalry from the teams as they followed the route, which ultimately brought them back to the hotel. Prize giving took place after a well-earned break before they enjoyed a great dinner to conclude what had been a very successful and enjoyable conclusion to their two-day conference.
