Serious Fun Workshop with our good friend Mark Collard from Australia

Mark Collard, best-selling author, adventure programming expert and founder of playmeo, is touring the United States this Fall to deliver a series of one-day training workshops.

Mark is one of a handful of trainers endorsed by the IATF.

Nothing beats first-hand experience, and that's exactly what Mark offers you and your team in this seriously fun, activity-based training.

Specifically designed for people who work with groups, this unique one-day workshop will show you how to design and deliver remarkably powerful programs that are easy to deliver and rewarding for everyone involved.

Jam-packed with inspiration and practical advice, the 'Serious Fun' workshop will:

  • Present dozens of highly successful group activities that have universal appeal, require few if any props and relate directly to your program's key learning goals;
  • Model a simple yet powerful four-step sequence called the Difference Model that is proven to create incredibly fun outcomes for any group;
  • Explore critical program design and facilitation skills such as how to engage your unwilling participants, how to manage difficult behaviours, and how to exceed your group's expectations.

BONUS #1: receive a complimentary one-month subscription to, the world's largest online database of group activities.

BONUS #2: preview Mark's forthcoming book, Serious Fun, due in November.
