Build a Model
Build.. Tell.. Understand..
LEGO®️ is much more than just a toy! LEGO®️ SERIOUS PLAY®️ is an innovative methodology using LEGO®️ bricks in consulting services, as a tool to challenge business ideas and strategic objectives. The method was developed by global management experts in collaboration with LEGO®️. Since the early 2000s it has been used by some of the most innovative companies in the world, among which: Microsoft, Harvard, Google, Pfizer and others
As a creative leadership development consultant, with many years of experience in the industry and academia, I bring with me an in depth understanding of the creative process. In 2016, I was qualified in London as a Trained Facilitator by the Global Association of LEGO®️ SERIOUS PLAY®️ methodology. Since, I have facilitated workshops worldwide for business and academic clients, among which: King’s College London, Regent’s University London, Media Exchange, ZEGO and others.
Each time I facilitate a new workshop, I am amazed again of the power of LEGO®️ to connect people, drive innovation and out of the box thinking. The LEGO®️ SERIOUS PLAY®️ methodology is great to include in an away-day activity, as a few hours workshop to drive the creative process or to explore a problem in team.
