Invent a team game - Laurence Wood

We have built the basic framework for a new team learning game. We have templates to speed things up to create a professionally presented card deck. The rest is up to you...

Delegates will create, test and refine a new team game. Its aim will be to help teams to continuously improve. It also needs to have useful instructions and informative packaging.

The end product will be a shiny new deck of cards designed by you, which we will send to everyone involved for free - fresh off the production line. Delegates can also opt in to be credited as co-creator in the online instructions.

A 90 minute hands on session for anyone interested in innovative ways of enhancing their teams. Creative folk will especially enjoy.

The meet-up will be at Campus North in Carliol Square, we'll aim to start at 6:30pm. There will be beer and soft drinks and we'll have pizza too! Thanks to our sponsor Scott Logic (http://www.scottlogic.com/).
