A NEW outdoor leadership centre at the national football centre will make the site an 'even more attractive proposition' to visitors.

St George's Park chairman David Sheepshanks made the statement as he cut the ribbon on the new part of the £105 million facility.

He revealed that he hoped that the new addition would also help develop future generations of 'winners'.

He said: "At St George's Park we are committed to developing winners.

"Be it in sport, business, or our daily lives, we are challenged with barriers that prevent us from achieving our goals.

"This new outdoor leadership centre will help equip those who visit us with the decision-making and delegation skills needed to succeed.

"Not only will the outdoor centre help develop winners with integral leadership skills, but it has everything in place to be able to help challenge whether a team's commitment, trust and risk-taking meets the requirements of their role.

"It will help our clients learn both key individual and team-building skills for everyday working life." The facility includes a 40ft climbing tower and a variety of high and low rope activities.

The centre, which also offers 15 different leadership and team exercises, an archery range and a laser combat zone, has been developed in partnership with Grahame Robb Associates, whose clients include HSBC and the London Business School, to develop high-performing individuals, teams and organisations.

The new outdoor leadership centre will be used by both sporting and business clients staying at the site, with coaching courses and organisations in and around Burton also expected to be regular users of the facility.

Rick Chattell, site director for Grahame Robb Associates Ltd at St George's Park, said: "The outdoors provides an excellent platform for developing individuals, teams and organisations and St George's Park provides the perfect setting."
