Explosives and spaceships, connection and fun with remote playable games

Connection and positive energy do not flow automatically in a remote team setting.
Instead, you need to create practices that create connection between team members. And let them have fun experiences together.

Sometimes we are just low on energy. This makes collaborating, remotely or otherwise, a bit ineffective and certainly it’s not fun. One way of tackling the problem is using energisers and games are pretty good ones at that. But how to make that work remotely?

Easy! By playing games that work well in a remote setting!

In this free interactive webinar we get some hands-on experience and talk about the benefits of fitting some gaming to your remote collaboration efforts!

The webinar will take place on 14:00 EET (13:00 CET) on Friday 27th of March and lasts 1,5 hours.
