Dear officers and senior Adult NCOs,
You are cordially invited to the Officers Retreat 2011.  Details of the event are as follows:
Date:        15 October 2011 (Saturday)
Time:        2pm to 5pm
Venue:      Decoder's Cafe
                Blk 320 Clementi Ave 4 #01-15 Singapore 120320


1.    To identify challenges facing the organisation (or the zone) and to brainstorm ideas to resolve them.


2.    To create self-awareness of officers’ current practice and to help create paradigm shift in the way things are carried out.


3.    To learn and improve on the way they communicate with each other, particularly their own teachers who used to teach them, as they are now taking the role of officers, to work with their teachers.


4.    To create self-awareness of the developments in the education scene in order for them to work closely with the school/teachers in order to benefit the cadets out there.



1.    Using game-based activities, to instill bonding between officers from different schools, coming together for this retreat and to know each other better.


2.    Using SWOT analysis to identify the challenges and solutions that the organisation (or the zone) is facing, and to brainstorm for ideas.


3.    To be able to get ideas from “3rd-party” on how to improve the way we officers work, by inviting guest-speakers to the retreat to share their experiences.
