"As a regular attendee of innovation conferences I was really amazed by the novel approach of the Change Play Business event. Due to the extensive preparation and professional guidance by the organization I quickly noticed that all the teams were truly immersed in this one-day creative journey. If you want to sparkle innovation within your organization, attending Change Play Business will be a great firestarter!"

Despite the run against the clock, the organization was excellent. Speakers, facilitators and trainers were the best and most inspiring I have met over the last few years."

"As an experienced facilitator of business workshops, when I saw the ambitious plan for the day, I must confess I was quite skeptical. I was wrong! Not only the whole programme was fulfilled but even more: all players were engaged and I didn’t catch a single negative comment, like the usual chats on corridors and toilets! Well done!"

"Companies should give their back teeth for this game to stimulate and build camaraderie in their teams or company."

“The game allowed me to think in a more experimental way, rather than focusing on the outcome. I found the exploratory approach very useful as business concepts are often not set in stone and should be something fluid and reactive to changes.”

Were your ideas challenged?
"Very much, more than I was prepared for, to be honest."
And how do you deal with it?
"I just accepted it. I am a green badge, so I am kind of a conservative person, but in the end I was completely out of the box!"
Do you see the benefit of Change Play Business in organisations to get the best out of employees?
"In the organisation I work for, yes, definitely yes. And I think most of the others the same. They do help, because it challenges the employees to think differently. It’s important."
How excited are you with your new project/new idea?
"It's brilliant, we came up with some really good ideas. It's kind of eye opening to see how just throwing the dice could actually give us such great ideas. And we came up with something that aligns quite well with everybody with what we are all doing in our daily work."
If you had to choose one tool you used today, what would that be?
"Putting together the business model, those questions where they are asking the key partners, key suppliers, etc, that also focuses the mind. The dice kinda gives you the space to do blue-sky thinking, and then that bit focuses your mind into thinking who are your partners and what do you need to do and all that."
