Tailor Made Briefs for defined target groups and locaton

Measurement is by NET PROFIT so key is Risk Assessment - spend more money / time building a larger raft that will carry more team members - or "go for it" with a small and hopefully swift and stable raft!

One of our design rules for tasks that involve water is to include important roles for people who don't want to go in the water! In this task planning, budgeting, forecasting, building, monitoring, supervising and supporting are all important. Each brief will also be tailor-made to the venue and level and type of challenge required.
