Case Study – Officers training conference

Savings in first 12 months


Staff rated the sessions as ‘good to excellent’


Staff reported increased connection to their colleagues

“We need to make a real difference – so can you make it REALLY different?”

Force Four were asked by BP Shipping to run four, 3-day workshop conferences over a 2 year period, with the following goals:

  1. To re-connect the sea staff teams with each other and their office based colleagues.
  2. To devise workshops around 7 major business issues that encourage interaction, learning and feedback without boring the delegates
  3. To keep the whole learning conference fast paced and energised


To deliver an increase in overall satisfaction of the delegates above 95%.

Delegate Profile: 200 delegates of multi-language, multi-cultural diversity but predominantly Indian (50%), Polish and English Sea Staff Officers (170pax) and UK Office

Meetings were also held with all BP training workshop owners and the following workshops were devised:

Topic 1 – Diversity & Inclusion

Topic 2 – Maintenance Strategy

Topic 3 – Catering Hygiene

Topic 4 – New Builds

Topic 5 – HSE Safety Culture Session

Topic 6 – Working at Height

Force Four collaborated closely with each workshop owner and unique workshops such as The Rat Trap, Ship Jigsaw and D&I Graffiti were subsequently conceived and designed by Force Four.

The Rat Trap was a full stage set build and facilitated by Force Four sourced actors, designed to encourage officers to identify Catering Hygiene issues that could prevent ship’s from sailing and costing the company £m’s.

Force Four designed the agenda, running order and facilitated all workshop routines.
