LEGO® Serious Play® and other playfully productive approaches with Richard Gold
To engage a group of teammates consider how engaged they are in the meeting. Are you leading a session that includes everyone? Are they listening? Are the participating? Do they care?
Have you created space for playful engagement? Well here is Richard Gold to give a juicy way to add value for all next time you bring people together. It all starts with a safe environment.
Here is a little about Richard;
I am an experienced business consultant and manager with a blue-chip international background, working at senior levels in strategy, digital transformation, proposition development, innovation, customer experience and marketing in media, healthcare, heritage, leisure, financial services and public sectors – among others.
I started out as a journalist and magazine editor in the media trade press before completing an MBA at INSEAD, and switching to consulting. In 25 years as a consultant, I have worked as principal in KPMG’s strategy consulting practice; as head of interactive media at world leading brand consultancy Wolff Olins; and as an associate director at digital transformation consultancy Transform; in addition to several years working independently.
I am now an independent consultant with a focus on helping organisations and teams to release the hidden potential of their people though emergent approaches to strategy, systems thinking and building psychological safety within teams.
A certified facilitator in the LEGO® Serious Play® technique, I have founded Bulbb which uses playful techniques such as LSP and Applied Improv to support clients in strategy, change, team development, leadership development and project management. Bulbb’s clients have included Novartis, Kier, Mencap, 02, eon, London School of Paediatrics and the MoD, among others. In a world that is that is changing at an accelerating pace, I use purposeful play to help organisations and teams solve some of their biggest issues.

Try out Speed Learning as a culture enhancer with Lloyd Lawrence
Lloyd has been a knowledge management practitioner for seven years, after discovering it in 2014. Prior to this Lloyd had a solid background in IT support, spanning over 20 years in a wide range of industries and multi-national organizations.
Having experienced the success that knowledge management brought to an IT support team in Airbus Australia Pacific, Lloyd found his new passion! He took up an opportunity to perform knowledge management at an organizational level for Airbus in Australia when they upgraded their ISO9001 standard to the 2015 version. This involved his first foray into developing a Knowledge Management framework. This framework included tools that help an organization preserve knowledge when staff exit, prevent costly re-work, reduce organizational risk, fast track projects and unblock tasks holding staff up.
In Lloyd’s current capacity working for a state government agency in Australia, he continues to hone his knowledge management skills while coordinating knowledge flows and facilitating sessions to improve support outcomes, build working relationships across teams and geographies, unblock tasks and preserve organizational knowledge. In this time, he has also been called upon in a consulting capacity by other Australian State Government agencies and even Auckland Police in New Zealand.
Outside of work, Lloyd likes to contribute to global knowledge management sessions and initiatives and is very passionate about permaculture and traditional food preparation methods such as dehydrating, fermenting, sprouting and sourdough…though perhaps not so successful at times!
