What People Say about Us

What happened over those 2 days [of training] was amazing – we took real-world problems that Luke encountered (with the names changed to protect the guilty!) and applied Innovation Games® to solve them. It was less about learning the games, but more about learning to solve a problem with gaming.

Paul Dunay
Former Global Managing Director Services & Social Marketing, Avaya
Wanted to say that I enjoyed your Amsterdam Innovation MasterClass. What I realized is that I have purposely banned games, especially computer games, from my life, when I started my professional career more than 20 years ago. I did not want to waste my time in games, was my thought at the time. You made me rethink and revise my decision. I now understand that games, especially serious games, can provide a new insight to a challenge that I would otherwise never be able to achieve. Let the games begin.
