Corporate Snakes and Career Ladders is a business simulation that helps you navigate the ambiguity between theory and practice as you encounter real-life scenarios. When you play Corporate Snakes and Career Ladders, you will take on the role of Carmen Spinoza, Corporate Communications Director of a world-class multinational. Your goal is to help the Executive Team make the right choices.
In this two-hour workshop, you’ll be presented with a series of communication challenges which you need to resolve as a team. You’ll also go through the elements of the Global Standard and apply them in a business situation.
We know that we learn best when we experience things, when we are having fun, and when we get a chance to reflect with others: these are the three pillars of its design.
We invite you to come and play to:
• explore real-life high-level organisational dilemmas
• understand your influencing style
• understand the skills to be an effective strategic adviser
• have fun whilst learning.
Date – Wednesday 28 April 2021
Time – 9.30am – 11.45am (2 hour workshop, 15 minute break)
Venue – The Atrium at The Hub @ Docklands, 80 Harbour Esplanade, Docklands, VIC 3008
“Part board game, part simulation and a whole lot of fun, this is a great learning experience. Comms pros who want to develop (or challenge) their strategic business or consultative skills should start right here.”
Tim Harrison, Communications and Marketing Director
“Corporate Snakes and Ladders is such a clever, innovative and engaging way of using the IABC Global Standard to inform personal career decisions and professional dilemmas, using the backdrop of a snakes and ladders board. As participants it made us think about what is right and what is easy (from a communication sense) and challenged us to think about organisational politics and manoeuvring. Congrats to the team for a great concept!”
Neil Griffiths, Global Head of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
