Help People Connect

Opt in. Mark Collard created an entire database of games for Playmeo, but key to all is the invitation to choose to participate. Once we make that choice, we enter in to a different type of connection with others.

Mark Twain is said to have observed “work consists of whatever a body is obliged to do, and that play consists of whatever a body is not obliged to do.” 

Mark Collard is an experiential trainer, author and founder of playmeo.com, a popular online platform that is best known for hosting the largest online database of group games & activities in the world. As one of Australia's most experienced and respected trainers, Mark creates simple, yet powerful workshops and resources that help people connect. He has written five top-selling books including Serious Fun and his latest No Props No Problem.

Speaking with CEOs, executive coaches, and other business leaders, Mary Hendra explores what “play” can look like in professional spaces, its impact on us and our organizations, and how to integrate a little play ourselves to build more compassionate and creative workplaces.
