Rogue Trader hunted down by Mobile Phone

Rogue trader treasure hunt in BrugesBlackberry and chocolate may seem an unusual combination, but it meant victory was sweet on a team building weekend in Belgium - as petroleum traders from Shell used their BlackBerry® smart phones to ensure a 'rogue trader' got his just desserts in Bruges.

Treasure Hunt at Bruges The finger of suspicion was pointing at a refinery in The Netherlands where it was believed that money from unauthorised trading in petrochemicals may be fuelling a lavish lifestyle for one of its traders.

Six 'insider suspects' had been identified from a rogues gallery and the pressure was on for four teams to flush out the rogue.

A frantic chase around Bruges ensued. Clues were drip-fed to teams via their smartphones while out and about, leading to a mad scramble to be first to collect the photographic evidence, piece together the identity of the rogue trader and establish how much the unscrupulous dealer had cost the company.

It was great interactive fun and the incentive of seeing their performance on a live league table throughout meant that some teams were almost as unscrupulous as the rogue trader they were seeking!
