The training and development your people
need to kick butt in the face of rapid change.


Serious play. 
Serious results.

If you want to change the world of work, you've
got to throw a better party than your competition 

We're here to help your people learn the skills and mindsets needed to face the pace of rapid change with confidence, giving you a competitive advantage that sets you apart from conventional, outdated business practices (and your competition).

A vibrant bunch of experience architects, learning designers and improvisers, we design and deliver programs, workshops, and events that disrupt the norm.

Playing outside of mainstream employee development and leadership trainings,

our passion and expertise in facilitation and purposeful play means we're supporting you to attract and retain top talent.

Because employers who play have employees who stay. 


Play isn't about trivialising important issues; it’s an invitation to approach things with a mindset that values adaptability and curiosity.

We believe our collective future depends on it.

We Help with Engagement

"At the end of the day they won't remember what you said or did, they will remember how you made them feel."

When your people are engaged they consciously connect to themselves, their work and their colleagues. True belonging transforms ordinary teams into extraordinary forces. With a sprinkle of this magic, communication and collaboration improve, psychological safety and trust flourish and performance and productivity inevitably rise.  

We Teach
Adaptability Skills


"Adaptability is just play in a fancy suit."

Adaptability is the art of skill-fully navigating the twists and turns of change, embracing the boundless realm of flexibility, and continually expanding our knowledge and growth. Play urges us to experiment with audacious ideas and embrace failure as a remarkable chance to learn. This empowers your people to triumph over uncertainty with confidence.

We Spark New Ways of Thinking

 "We can't solve the world's biggest problems with the same thinking we used to create them."

Stretching our mind to think in new ways allows us to embrace curiosity, tackle complex challenges and conjure up innovative solutions. Play is the creative catalyst for this, inviting us to explore uncharted territories and leap beyond the status quo.

What Clients Say About Play


Carolyn Bell
Executive Director 
Epworth Hospital

What a great way to unleash creativity amongst the team. Our leaders learned the power of fun and our key takeaway from the day was that we can often get caught up in structures, process and bureaucracy and through play we can create energy, innovation and build relationships to connect with one other. 


Jake Spiering

Chief Financial Officer


The team have absolutely created a spark, turning on a creative culture within our organisation. The feedback was outstanding. We have seen a number of the tools and takeaways continue to show up across our business to unlock new ways of collaborating and building on each other’s ideas.  Our leadership team is now aware of the power of “Yes, And….”, and we have seen multiple teams introduce play into their organisational rituals.  


Margaret Tope


Vic College for the Deaf

The workshop was fun, engaging and created the opportunity for staff to share and learn about each other in a safe space. The discussions were rich and you could see staff were having ‘aha’ moments as they gained deeper insights about each other. This new knowledge will definitely add stronger context for building our collective efficacy.
