Play Talk


In contrast to our workshops, where play speaks for itself, we also speak on behalf of play and capture audiences with stories (and science) of how play can change our lives. We usually try to talk about the joy of play, mindset shifts and play as a personal and organisational development tool but somehow play always manages to get the better of us and we lose control. Except for when we want to be serious, of course.

Would you like us to come and talk at your event or within your organisation? Send us an email at with a subject like “Can You Speak?” and that will get the conversation started. =)


Some example titles of talks we have given (or could give) are:

– Why Do Children Stop Playing and How Can Adults Start Again?
– How Play helps to build a sustainable culture in a postmodern organisation?
– How Can We Create a Community Culture Around Play?
– How to Construct a Future School System Built on Play?
– The Science of Play: What Does the Latest Science about Play have to Say?

Play Walks

This novel concept is our own invention and it combines play, walking in nature and being together as a group. Think walking holiday in a beautiful setting and combine it with play and you won’t be too far off the mark. Our first play walk will take place this autumn (location TBD) when 20 people or so will walk together with us for one week. Every day, there will be some walking, some play and some space for talking about life, play and everything in between.

There are still places left for the play walk this autumn! If you think this is something you would like to do, send us an email at with the subject “Play Walk” to let us know that you are interested. We will then get back to you with more information once the route and other details are confirmed.
