Play at Work: Releasing human potential through play with Portia Tung

"The School of Play" founder Portia Tung for an interactive mini-adventure on the science and history of play this November.

Are you frustrated by an unhappy and cynical workforce? Do you feel swamped by poor quality deliverables that no one wants? Do you dream of doing more of what you love and enabling others to do the same?

If your answer is "Yes…" to one or more of these questions, then it's time to act swiftly before unfulfilled daily work gobbles up the last bit of play potential in you and your colleagues and stymies forever your chances of doing valuable work in a meaningful way.

Join Portia Tung, Playmaker 001 and founder of The School of Play on a whirlwind interactive mini adventure through the science and history of play and how play is essential for adult development, well-being and a happier, more effective working life.

About Portia Tung

Portia is Playmaker 001 and the founder of The School of Play. She is also a play coach, storyteller and wish maker. Portia's pursuit to realise human potential has led her to the vital discovery of the importance of play in adults. The School of Play is an opportunity to share the latest research on play and offers unique and trans-formative experiences for all of us to lead happier and more fulfilling lives through reconnecting with our playful selves.
