    ​Project Play

    Project Play's play-based programs teach the skills and mindsets needed in a rapidly changing world.

     

    We believe work can be better and here’s how:

    • Bring down turnover costs by engaging and empowering your people.
    • De-risk creativity to encourage experimentation and challenge "business-as-usual".
    • Improve collaboration across chronically-siloed teams and departments.
    • Assist high-performers with stress management, productivity and resilience.

    With play, we give ourselves the ability to adapt to change — opening up new ways of thinking, working and leading.

  • Selected Adventures

    "To say 'yes' is to make a leap of faith, to risk oneself in a new and often scary relationship"

    The Moth Melbourne StorySLAMs

    Est 2015

    I've repped NYC's The Moth in Australia since 2015, as Local Producer, running over 75 open mic StorySLAMs (and counting)! Over 700 storytellers have jumped up and shared a story from their own lives with a room of strangers.

    It's a magical event and very close to my heart.

    I am also known to get up and share a story of my own from time to time.

    Kaospilot

    2019

    In early 2019, I was introduced to the Kaospilot methodology of learning design.

    Oh boy - "transformational" is an understatement!

    After completing the local Masterclass in April, I traveled to Aarhus, Denmark to further my experience at KaosHQ. I am hooked!

    I would recommend this training to anyone who develops programs of learning - whether online or in person; adult or child.
