Our team is made up of Innovation Champions and Play Advocates who believe in innovation as a driver for change.
Each of us comes from different backgrounds-we are a diverse and multifaceted team! We have worked individually and as a team, in different areas of the innovation field for various years.
These experiences have allowed us to push the boundaries of what’s possible to train and empower individuals and organizations to develop their full capacity to innovate. These in combination with our passion for play led us to develop the Playnnovation framework. A new framework that has the potential to drive change and innovations in any organization.
