About Virtual connection labs

Join us for our LIVE 75-minute workshops and experience Play on Purpose in action. Each month, learn interactive, engaging VIRTUAL exercises that create connection from leading facilitators and experience designers. 

in each session we will
  • Experience 2-3 virtual exercises centered around a specific theme
  • Take a peek behind the curtain and discuss tips and variations on facilitating these games in virtual environments
  • Build real connection to other practitioners in the field using these techniques

This was the best workshop/connection lab I have ever participated in. Today was my first time participating, and I will definitely be joining again! I feel so much more knowledgeable on how to gage unexpected technical issues, be more present in the moment and mindful of my surroundings/others, and more confident in facilitating and speaking up as well. Amazing experience! 10 out of 10.

“I am in absolute love with the Virtual Connection Labs. I always walk away feeling inspired and refreshed. A must attend in learning how to connect in this virtual world.”

Christina Chateauvert, Employee Experience Designer and Founder, c.c.design LLC

Adam was a wonderful facilitator! I felt so connected to the whole experience, to the group as a whole, and to my partner that I shared a breakout room with. I really appreciated the way he led the experience, artfully moving us from one activity to the next, with thoughtful transitions and with an energy of safety and creativity. I loved the different forms of sharing and dialogue and the way the chat was used to enhance the experience. It was especially powerful when two different attendees read out all our reflections, which felt like a collective burst of energy. The activities were fun and meaningful and now I have cool artifacts to reflect on. Thanks for an unexpectedly great hour-ish of my day! <3

Roz Duffy, Intuitive Action LLC

“This was SO fun! Afterwards my whole family (who were two rooms away) asked ‘what was going on in there!? What were you laughing so much for?’ LOL what a great thing to be asked.”

My first Virtual Connection Lab on creativity and it was super fun! Our facilitator, Romy is great at prompting engaging questions and planning activities that sparked our curiosity. It was a wonderful experience, and thank you Romy for bringing such lively energy and unleashing our playfulness once forgotten. I don’t want to grow up! 🙂

Neng Mohd, Creative Director

The workshop was WONDERFUL! Stellar content, facilitation, creativity, conversation, & community!
