This learning can then be transferred back to the workplace to improve the performance of the individuals involved. If you would like to improve the perfomance of your team or simply have...

Great Welsh Activity Weekends The great Wales activity weekend is becoming more and more popular all the time. People are starting to realise that while an activity weekend on the continent can be a fun experience, a home grown one is usually a better experience.

Speleology is the scientific name but caving is the common description. Caving or speleology is the underground exploration of natural or man-made caverns. After the oceans caves are one of the most fascinating environments known to man where it is still possible to participate in original exploration.
