Learning design

Customised training that stimulates development

Flow – a state of joy, creativity and total engagement. We all know this feeling of being so absorbed in an activity that everything else fades to the background. This is our goal.

By influencing attitudes, developing skills, changin behaviours and building relationships we help people to live better lives at work and beyond.

At the heart of our bespoke course design processes are powerful exercises that combine learning and development within an immersive experience. These go far beyond the “five-minute ice-breaker” which is often offered as experiential learning.

Our solutions involve challenge, creativity and unexpected situations that change mindsets, shape behaviour and facilitate skills practice.

We design learning for:

L&D and HR teams

We partner with L&D teams to co-develop experiential plug-ins for their in-house programmes, or create fully bespoke programmes.

Managers and team leaders

We support managers and leaders in reaching their goals, equipping them with tools, ideas, motivation and confi dence. We also work with their teams to strengthen relationships, communicate messages and build sustainable culture.

Communications departments

Design of experiential solutions for internal and external comms, or CSR initiatives. Our customised learning experiences have been created for corporate teams, customers and members of the public.


Universities and colleges offering executive and professional development courses use our services to develop highly interactive simulations and exercises to help embed academic learning into everyday practice.
