Mark Collard

I'm an experiential trainer and I run a professional development company called 'playmeo.' I help teachers and corporate trainers design & deliver remarkably fun educational programs which engage students in their learning and make a powerful difference in the lives and performance of their groups and organisations. I am the author of two top-selling activity publications 'No Props' and 'Count Me In,' both of which are sold worldwide. In late 2014, I published my latest book 'Serious Fun' which describes my unique experiential methodology.

In 2012, I launched - a searchable online group games database which features 270+ group games & activities, each with step-by-step instructions, video tutorials and lesson plans.

Professionally, I hold Bachelor of Business (Accounting) and MBA degrees, and am listed as an 'expert witness' for adventure-based activities on the Victorian County Court register.
