Used By Teams To:

  • Add some FUN to a virtual conference, team meeting, retreat or event!
  • Connect team members organically and authentically
  • Relieve stress & promote mental health / workplace wellness

How It Works:

Virtual PLAYshops are completely remote and can take place while your team is working from home. Teams of 8-100 can be accommodated. There are 3 components:

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.

2. Positive Psychology

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


Interactive and FUN virtual finales that will be sure to have the team grinning from ear to ear! Think: Virtual Rock Bands, Epic Group Speeches, Dance Parties & More!
