work with me // masterclasses and workshops to shake things loose
My masterclasses and workshops are for teams and organisations that know there's more to work than ticking boxes and cashing checks.
Through the primal power of play, I help them shake things loose. Together, we explore ways to create better, connect on a new level, and play your way to a brighter future.
"How do you make fundamental changes to your organisation of 150 people after 22 years of the same way of working? Nancy introduced us to it playfully. She took us to the edge of our comfort zones, mirrored and created awareness. Now, over 2 months later, colleagues are still taking about her games."
Marie Groenhof, Manager Greenhouse/Horticulture at Achmea
When Nancy started working in our company, we were a traditional online tour operator. Today we are a 100% agile -eCommerce organization with self-supporting teams. Nancy helped transform and shape our current environment. For me, she is a motivator 2.0. She can really reset a company.

It's time to experience the scientifically-backed power of play.
In a workshop and masterclass, you and your team will experience the ways in which play can bring measurable, impactful and positive change to the way you interact, think, and create.
Together, we'll delve deep into the dynamics of playing games, in custom-designed sessions perfect for professionals looking to shake things up and get things moving in a new and better direction.

Do you have a particular idea in mind for a workshop or masterclass for your organisation? I'd love to hear it!
Equally: no idea where to start, except that you know you'll need to start somewhere? Let's chat.
Warning: masterclasses and workshops might have unexpected side effects.
You've gotten this far, so it seems fair to warn you.
You and your team may experience lowered stress levels, more creative thinking, and a strange feeling of empowerment. This is an inevitable consequence of the re-connection of your two cerebral hemispheres as a result of play.
Participants have also reported getting up for work with renewed energy in the morning.
You may also find yourself running around, dancing, giggling and waving your arms about during my workshops and masterclasses. Please do not be alarmed, it'll pass eventually.
