Making The News

Creating front-page news can assist your team in understanding the importance of conference values in just a couple of hours.


Introduce your team to the fast-paced world of newspaper publishing for an experience that’s hot off the press.

What is Making the News? 

Making the News is a team bonding/building exercise that invites delegates to get creative. The challenge facing each team sounds simple; they must create the front page of a newspaper reporting on the day’s conference events. Just like a professional news team, they must identify the big stories and, following cryptic leads, find the vital information that will break them wide open. The teams will also need to send reporters into the streets to track down subjects for interviews and capture the perfect award-winning photograph based on supplied criteria.

Each team’s creativity is brought into play as, in addition to writing a number of articles, they must name their newspaper, design an advertisement, write a ‘business forecast’ and even create a cartoon.

Each team’s front page is printed large-scale and put on display for the whole group to see. Upon completion of the challenge, these can serve as a valuable feedback mechanism in illustrating how effectively key messages have been interpreted and understood.

How can it help your team? 

Making The News allows delegates to demonstrate their understanding of the conference messages as well as providing a platform to express their own views, opinions and suggestions relating to the business. Teams creative sides shine as they deliberate the best ways to get their message across.
