methodology

At Spille, we design playful and creative meetings and workshops that inspire teams to truly connect, strategize, and become aligned.

We engage each individual in the room through participative play, dialogue, and visual problem solving.


How effective are your meetings and workshops right now?

imagine and play

Your employees and teammates are yearning for a more playful and intimate experience at work. They want to get out of their routines and connect with one another through meaningful experiences to explore a shared future together.

Do your workshops usually involve some folks in the room dominating the airspace while others hesitate to speak up? Are people burned out on PowerPoint presentations? Maybe there are varied power dynamics and a variety of learning styles, and you want to engage everyone.

100 % Participation

use more of your brain

Up to 80% of your brain cells are connected to your hands. When you create with your hands (vs. just talking), you are activating much more of your brain.

Communication is faster when you can see others’ ideas, not just hear them.
