What’s really happening at Agile Games?

What creates an amazing conference, meeting, or conversation? Among other things, the ability to be honest, well-structured, and naturally calibrate to what is right here and now. Agile Games focuses on creating the most well-adapted interactions possible. What happens when we turn that lens on ourselves? When we take a look at the conference, at who we are in this space, and what we really want and need to say? This session will be a full dive into experiential authenticity, focused on making our time at Agile Games as productive as possible, and demonstrating games that can be used to safely bring forth truth in any meeting or social situation.

    Hi Sara - our 150 minutes sessions are planned to be on the first day of the event in the afternoon.  I noticed that you mentioned this session should be on day 2 or later.  Would that fact diminish the session value too much, or could it still be done?

      Hi Tom! Do some event attendees already know each other? If so, afternoon would be fine. This workshop just requires some degree of shared prior experience and trust, so if the group is totally new to each other and just starting out, I'd probably submit a more getting-to-know-you kind of workshop. But I think this one would be interesting to run!

        There will be people there that know each other as we get repeat attendees, and we usually have several companies that will send groups/teams to attend.  I could not give you a real estimate, but it will be a mix of both those who know others and others that do not.

          Okay. I'd love to run the session, then. I'm happy adapting it if I get a different idea of how people are interacting and what they need throughout the first part of the day.
