What does play mean to you?

Play is as important as sleep and as powerful as purpose.

We know it’s bold. But there is evidence that play leads to better performance, as does quality sleep. Play also boosts motivation, like having a clear sense of purpose. Don’t worry. We’re here to revamp your understanding of play and make it work for you.

Play is the most enjoyable way to build resilience and deliver results

Who doesn’t want to love life more? We know what it’s like trying to hold it together when you feel rubbish. But we’ve also experienced how reimagining life through play can help show the way, at work and beyond. So we now diagnose resilience and prescribe play to enable success – whatever that means for you.

Connecting the dots with simple but powerful data

An organisation is ultimately a gathering of humans. A harmonised view of all levels in your system is powerful. You’re only as strong as your weakest link.

Empowering you to create your own solutions

For change to take hold, it has to come from within. We provide insights and tools. But everyone needs the time to design and test their own solutions.

A lean but growing network of playful partners

Collective intelligence is essential for success. We’ve spent time getting to know people around the world and finding the right players to support you.

On a mission to put ourselves out of business

To play is to be human. Once play is understood and valued again, our purpose will be fulfilled. And so our next adventure will begin.

Could play help you be at your best?

Tzuki Stewart and Pauline McNulty achieved lots on paper, driven by society’s idea of what it means to be successful. But behind the scenes it was a rocky road. Something was missing. After years of research and self-discovery, they have found the answer. Play.

Tzuki and Pauline united around the notion that play is misunderstood and undervalued in adulthood. They believe play can tap into the hidden potential of people and organisations, bringing more joy to life and work.

Playing startups together

Pauline asked Tzuki if she wanted to explore the concept of play in early 2020. It all began as an experiment. Both play in their own way. Pauline’s imagination starts the creative vision and Tzuki’s discerning energy brings it to life. So far, everything’s going rather well. It’s handy they have a wealth of corporate experience and credentials between them too.
