1. Group Games

Fun and interactive (improv-influenced) games that are designed to get teams to break down barriers and learn about themselves and the group at large. Includes a gameshow wheel for extra fun!

The research behind what makes life worth living and aims to discover and promote the factors that allow individuals and groups to thrive.

“Luis’s PLAYshop had our whole team interacting and bonding in the most fun ways possible! The valuable information on innovation through the lens of play and mindfulness is already paying dividends for our marketing team!
PLAYshops push you to grow as a team & have a great effect on team morale and the workplace environment. Highly recommended!"  - Marketing Director
"PLAYshops changed our team! Not only did their performance increase but they laugh more, they work more as a team, they go out of the way to help one another and the gratitude that they show is beyond my expectations. The positivity in the office is undeniably the best its ever been! They don't fear obstacles now, they love the challenge and celebrate together playing games from PLAYshop when they have overcome them. I highly recommend Fundamentals of Play and especially Luis as a facilitator. Change the way your employees think and have some fun!"
- Cassandra Harvey, North American Sales Manager, Intrepid Trave 
"Luis worked with me on a short timeline to deliver an excellent workshop that was extremely well received. It is evident that Luis is a well organized, client focused and engaging facilitator.
He delivered a fantastic relevant workshop for my sales team  with a great balance of skill introduction and practice (play), while having an amazing time together."

What a great PLAYshop! Participants really enjoyed themselves, let loose and learned some new awesome things. Great concept with fun and learning merged perfectly.
-  Barbara Kuzel, Social Committee Lead, EY
Our team and our company as a whole has gone through a lot of changes and rapid growth. The Teamwork PLAYshop was a unique & amazing way to  bring everyone together to learn and have fun as one team. We learned how to adapt to change, have a positive attitude  &  work better as a team. What a great program!  
Donna Bramley, Director of Salon Development, Marc Anthony Cosmetics
"PLAYshops are incredible! As a team, you learn about the research behind concepts like mindfulness, positivity and teamwork that can have a real impact at work and at home.
Best of all, you actually experience the concepts first hand through fun games and activities,  making the knowledge more relatable beyond anything that a lecture or book could do.
- Michael Allcock, Director of Design

"We took our grade 12 leadership students to a Playshop and they LOVED it! Luis was able to seamlessly incorporate the concepts of positive psychology into play, improv, and creativity.
The overall message the students took away was extremely valuable and many of them started putting in to practice techniques they learned the very next day! We will definitely be taking them back each year."
-  Teri Osmond, Leadership Manager
