About Power of Play:

Bored of Boring Meetings? Tired of tired employees?

New studies in neuroscience have identified the Power of Play as one of the best methods to create engagement, increase performance and supercharge creativity and innovation. In a word, play is MAGIC.

Roger combines his background in education and performance, with current studies in neuroscience to demonstrate innovative techniques that incorporate elements of play into education, meeting, and team programming. As an advocate for the participatory model, Roger will showcase how to weave together learning, networking, and fun using interaction, theatrics and friendly competition.

The session not only talks the talk but walks the walk; participants will experience first hand some of Roger’s recommended activities resulting in a wildly entertaining and a surprisingly profound experience. This session is ideal for your opening keynote: it puts participants into the best headspace for learning and networking for the rest of the conference.


  • Tangible strategies to incorporate play into the most important aspects of work and life
  • Design your work environment, training sessions, and meetings to encourage knowledge retention and create a safe environment to share new ideas
  • How to reverse society’s concept of play so that you can use play to create power
