I really enjoy public speaking and training people on gamification! Recently I have been speaking at various conferences and running training about gamification. Conferences and training are a great way to engage with people from a lot of different backgrounds that work for a lot of different industries but have a similar interest like gamification. I have spoken at Gamification Europe Conference in Brighton, at Gamification Turkey Summit in Istanbul and I have run various training sessions all over the world. I am always looking for new opportunities to travel and meet more people and share my ideas and experiences related to gamification!

The other thing that excites me is running LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® workshops. My final project for my MSc degree at the University of Brighton was on crowd sourcing strategy inside an organisation using gamification. Out of that project a five stage strategy model was born that is the beating heart of the Build your future with LEGO workshop where I use LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® to help people work on their strategies. I have delivered that workshop for several organisations in house and also at conferences like the Brighton Summit for people working in different businesses. The feedback was great every single time and the interaction between the participants and the results we got from these workshops were a huge reward for me. My framework was helping people design better strategies and I got to see it happening live! 

Great crowd in Athens with lots of experience on gamification!

The strategy workshop proved invaluable to myself and my co-director. We covered a lot of ground very quickly, guided by the unique process and would wholeheartedly recommend it to every leadership team.
