Are you ready to supercharge learner engagement and level up learning outcomes?

Visionary Learning | Deliberate Creativity | Gameful Experiences

What did you learn today? I think this is one of the most important questions we can ask ourselves each day. 

By staying curious and continuing to learn each day, anything is possible.

GamiCon 2018 was a blast!

Even if you didn't get to join us for this year's GamiCon, it's not too late to listen in on the episode of Gamification Talk Radio where Monica Cornetti had me on as a guest to discuss the real world events that my GamiCon session was based upon. You can also listen to me chat with Rob Alvarez aka Professor Game on his podcast (OK, you can actually listen to me giggle a bit too, because it was such a fun experience). 

There will be more about the event in future blog posts, but I can also bring my GamiCon session, the 4 Cs to an A+ Learning Experience, to your event or organization so you can explore how to help your learners be more engaged and have better learning outcomes. 

40 Gameful Days of Summer

Over the summer I completed a personal challenge of sharing gameful design tips on live, unedited video for 40 consecutive workdays. You can catch them on my IGTV channel or on YouTube in the 40 Gameful Days of Summer playlist.

Even with all this going on I still have openings on my calendar throughout 2018. If you need a speaker for your event or group, I'd love to talk to you and see how we can work together to make learning better for your learners.
