Playful Words

Hear how our experiential learning programs are changing the way we work and connect

“Dara Simkin and Project Play have absolutely created a spark and turned on a creativity culture within our organisation. We arranged for Project Play to come and hold workshops for 150 of our employees and the feedback was outstanding and we have seen a number of the tools and takeaways continue to show up across our business to unlock new ways of collaborating and building on each other’s ideas.  Our corporation leadership team is now aware of the power of “Yes, And….”, and we have seen multiple teams introduce play into their organisational rituals.  We’re excited to continue to partner with Dara and Project Play to continue to unlock the creative potential of our company.” Jake Spiering, Executive Director and CFO, Chevron Australia    

“Dara is amazing, she’s nothing but energy, she brings herself all the time, she’s very present and — delightful is probably the best word.” — Brendan Boyle, IDEO Partner

“What a great experience and what a great way to unleash some creativity. We learned the power of fun and the key takeaway is how we can get caught up in structures and process and bureaucracy and it taught us that play is a great way to create energy, create innovation and build relationships to connect with each other.” - Carolyn Bell, Executive Director Epworth Healthcare

“It was through play-based learning that the team were able to uncover and have some conversations that they might not have had so naturally and easily, that happened through their interactions of LEGO or improv that loosened their rational thinking and opened the space for different conversations.” - Elizabeth Fritzlaff, Senior OD Consultant, ME Bank
