playmeo creates simple, yet powerful training workshops & resources that help people connect.
We love working with motivated leaders who are responsible for the wellbeing of others because, like us, they know that strong relationships amplify the results of whatever they are trying to get done.
Over the course of his 30+ year career, playmeo’s founding director Mark Collard has delivered 2,000+ training days for 100,000+ people in 11 countries and written 5 best-selling books.

Every idea starts with a problem. Ours was clear: people long for social connectedness but need to be convinced that interacting with others is not going to threaten or embarrass them.
This is where fun weaves its magic.
You see, when there’s no fun, people find it difficult to engage, and when there’s no trust, they pull back from participating.
At playmeo, we believe everyone has the right to feel valued and that they belong.
We are passionate about the use of group games & activities to facilitate this process because they are a powerful (and thankfully, attractive) way to help people interact, build trust and connect more meaningfully with others.
Everything we do is designed to inspire, equip and empower you to use interactive group games & activities to help your groups connect.
Our programs and resources are etched from an intimate understanding of how hard it is to lead a group sometimes – from the unwilling participant to unproductive teams and always being expected to produce more with less (time, money, resources, etc.)
Our elite team of contributors – many of them best-selling authors and expert practitioners in their own right – have been there, done that, and share what they have found that works.

There are no shortage of books, websites, videos and training practitioners who will teach you dozens, if not hundreds, of fun games and activities. And this is fine. Very few, if any, however, will help you learn the skills and strategies to understand how to leverage these activities – together with critical group facilitation skills – that make a difference.
Today, with school and corporate budgets under constant pressure to squeeze as much value from every dollar, every program has to justify its existence. Having fun just doesn’t cut it anymore.
Don’t get me wrong – fun is fundamentally related to your ability to engage a group and invite them to step outside their comfort zone – but it’s not often enough to make a difference.
All of playmeo’s resources feature a powerful approach to education and recreation, where wellbeing is the central character and fun is its most potent weapon. This approach is best known for its ability to engage people, connect them, strengthen relationships, develop team skills, etc.
Imbued with an experiential-based learning methodology, our resources are designed to help you learn the skills and strategies you need to make a difference in the lives and performance of the groups you work with.

It was one of a series of nonsensical words Mark considered when he was looking for a name for his new online platform of resources. It had to be less than 10 characters long (it is seven) to form a short domain name, and it had to include or feature the word ‘play.’ The word playmeo happened to be available.
For a while, the seven letters of playmeo were captured in an acronym (which was soon forgotten) – but it still didn’t mean anything.
