Major Raajiv Wanigasekera
Founder / Director Training & Operations, Chief Facilitator Outdoor Training
Raajiv met Mihirini when he participated in a training program conducted by Corporate Druids way back in 2013. When he began conducting his own adventure based education it was a no-brainer to collaborate with him. His creativity in designing team based, fun and educative activities is truly inspiring and effective. We often collaborate on team building workshops, where Corporate Druids works with the team on the softer skills of team dynamics/development/building and communication skills and Raajiv brings his magic to the learning process in outdoor adventure based learning. Its a great partnership.
