Team-i Training - partnering with Devon Chamber of Commerce
Kai Horstmann, leading Exeter Chiefs player and a veteran of over 200 top flight games of rugby, is heading up a brand new series of training courses for business which gives an insight into the teamwork and planning strategies of his career and how they can be applied to the workplace.

Devon Chamber of Commerce members is being given an exclusive opportunity to take part in the series of courses at a discounted rate before they are formally launched in the region.

In partnership with two experienced business leaders Tim Thurston, former managing director of Archant Life, publisher of Devon Life and Andy Cooper, former editor of the North Devon Journal and currently editor of Devon Life, Kai has developed a programme that takes the following key learnings from professional rugby and shows how they can transcend into your business:

Kai will lead the learning programme with keynote appearances from professional rugby players on courses.

Kai said: “I am truly excited to be launching this series of training programmes, which will emphasise the importance of having fun and working hard as a team to build success in business.

“I have been fortunate enough to play in some successful teams whose culture and planning strategies have led to success on the field, none more so than my proudest moment when I played in the Exeter Chiefs’ Aviva Premiership winning side at Twickenham last May.

“A successful on-field team in rugby can only be achieved through proper planning and teamwork. There is no doubt these skills and strategies can be transferred to business and I look forward to helping firms build a bright future based on the experience I have.”

Team-i have partnered with Devon Chamber of Commerce to run an introductory course from their Talent working hard together programme, at a special partnership rate.

The course will cover the key elements of a high performing team and how they can transcend into your business; how to create a winning culture and the importance of good leadership.

The course will be delivered by an experienced business leader with a keynote appearance from professional rugby player Ollie Atkins.

Courses are running between 10:30 and 15:00 on  

Thursday 19 April at Exeter Racecourse

Thursday 21 June at Park Hotel, Barnstaple
