Play fosters creativity, confidence and engagement. It builds strong teams and drives innovation. But how can you turn play into a business?
About this event:
Play is a verb that's mostly associated with under the 12s corner. As adults, often our 'play time' tends to become more Friday night drinks and perhaps a yearly festival adventure. But what happens when adults get the chance to innocently play year-round? And where can you find such playful experiences in Auckland?
