    "The Play2Lead program was very well received by our colleagues. Many reported increases in self-awareness and self-regulation and enjoyed the daily nudges to find better balance between work and self-care. It was inspiring to see the high participation levels. Activities in the program that were especially well received included the reframing of their negative thinking to more positive thinking, and the different self-care activities they undertook including new things they learnt during the Circuit Breaker."

    "Play2Lead has been a pleasure to work with to help us engage and prepare a segment of our workforce to help them re-skill as part of our Digital Transformation Intiative. Engagement for this mobile app was high and sustained through the pilot, and we were pleasantly surprised how open our participants were with sharing their challenges and how willing they were to build Resilience & Growth Mindset. We were also surprised how digitally savvy our participants who were mostly over 45. Even though this was only a 6 week intro, our self-assessment surveys indicated that there were improvements in both resilience and wellbeing. 100% signed up for technical courses so that they could be ready for new roles."

    "We selected Play2Lead to be our microlearning platform provider after scanning the market and finding that other products did not meet our specific program delivery needs. Since 2019 we have built and run our pilot sponsorship program and two successful programs on the Play2Lead platform.


    The key thing that stands out for us is Play2Lead's responsiveness and can-do attitude. Whenever we have questions or queries, we know that Theresa and her team will jump in and help us out...we're not technical experts and Play2Lead has been a pleasure to work with over the last 18 months, making our journey from concept to pilot and commercialisation much earlier than expected.

This is assuring when I recommend to my clients a tool that they can independently engage in to grow healthily in mental well-being. Feedback has been positive especially from clients who have been working from home in the new normal environment. "

    Product Knowledge Training

    Engage & Measure Learning of Your Field Force!

    It can be quite expensive to bring together your sales force and channel partners to teach them about your latest products and solutions. So why not make it fun, leverage their natural competitive spirit and measure the uplift in product knowledge? You can even start measuring

    what your sales force know before your face-to-face training, as well as compare the knowledge levels of those that attended your face-to-face training with those that didn't or were relying on e-learning (which probably has low take-up rates). You can then focus your attention to the sales people that need the training most. Companies like Samsung have used our platform repeatedly to engage and measure learning for their field force.

    Safety/Compliance Training

    Making BORING training FUN!!

    Boring compliance training is typically DEATH by Powerpoint. You can keep your participants awake by injecting pop quizzes throughout the session and rewarding them with prizes as they climb up the leaderboard. We also have Virtual Reality immersive training for Construction Site Safety and Warehouse Safety - Hazard Identification - fully integrated to our gamified mobile microlearning platform.

    Values-Based On-boarding/ Orientation Training

    Keep your new employees excited & aligned (NOT bored)!

    Mix up your on-boarding training with quick pop quizzes so that your new employees stay engaged during on-boarding training (which can feel like information overload)!


    And if you really want to shake things up, we have partners that can help you create a Virtual Reality content that will help your potential and new employees experience specific functions and geographies across your company. You won't need to have representatives from the different departments talk to the new recruits. Your new recruits can more easily connect with each other as they participate answering pop quizzes and polls during the training. More importantly, you can arm their team leader or manager with what the new recruit doesn't know so that they can bridge the knowledge gap quickly.

    "I was recently in a position where I’d lost my way with my job and not only did I not know how to resolve it, I couldn’t really identify what the problem was. I found Theresa to be personable, smart and insightful. She provided astute feedback, tools and guidance which were all immensely valuable. But importantly, she created space where I could work through my own thinking. I developed a greater understanding of my strengths." COO of a fintech company who transitioned to COO of a media company.


    “Theresa is extremely passionate, energetic and dynamic. Her expertise in Tech and Mobile platforms is obvious and invaluable. She challenged us to think outside our typical paths of experience, pushing us into unknown and sometimes uncomfortable areas but with great motivation and guidance...” Co-Founder of Edtech Startup.


    “Theresa is a great listener who can help guide you through finding solutions to problems where you thought there might be none, or even highlighting a problem in a completely new angle.” CEO & Co-Founder of social impact startup.

    Our stack consists of Javascript, React, NodeJS, PostSQL. Our main focus is on building a dynamic web platform for users on both desktop and mobile devices. At the right time, we will be building in machine learning and data analytics/visualization into our platform.

    What we are looking for

    Passionate Engineers.

    Your ability in learning new technologies is way more important for us than years of experience with specific tech. However, as we are looking for core team members at this moment we are only considering candidates who can kick ass with tech not just play with it in free time. Our Tech Stack is Javascript/React/NodeJS/MongoDB.


    If you’re attracted to startups because you think you’ll cash out big soon, don’t bother applying. We want only passionate technologists who are truly out to better humanity. Our vision is to transform how employees learn so that learning is fun, measurable and impactful. Don’t bother applying if you don’t like working with corporate customers, or you don’t have a growth mindset. You actually care that what you are building solves the customers’ points, and you can empathise with them.

    broken image

    Fail Fast, but smart

    You take calculated risks and take responsibility when you make mistakes, and are comfortable failing fast and learning quickly from them. You must have a stomach for taking risks, which in a startup world, includes the uncomfortable feeling of doing something just to keep the lights on, but being mindful of the choice we made, and still having the focus on the overall vision.



    broken image


    We are looking for self-driven individuals who can plan their day and deliver on time with no reminders and nudging. You are comfortable with making decisions and balance what data you can get, speed required for the decision as well as your gut. You take responsibility for finding the balance you will need to sustain the rollercoaster journey that is the startup life.

    Play, As a Team

    OK, I borrowed this one from Atlassian. As the CEO & Founder, I can be intense about delivering great products. But I also deeply care about people and relationships I build. I want my team to help me build the culture that reflects what we are building – I want us to always have FUN doing what we do, just as I want our customers to have fun learning. Whether you end up being the Lead Developer, the CTO or one of our talented engineers contributing to the team, you take pride in your work and sharing what you’re learning with your team. You also want to contribute to building the team culture and are always on the lookout for talent that may one day join our team.

    broken image

    Be the change you seek

    This one from Gandhi…which Atlassian borrowed;) Don’t bother applying if you’re the person who after a meeting wants someone to take notes and spoonfeeds you, or you’re the person that when something goes wrong, looks first at blaming others before looking at themselves for what you could have done differently. If you are the person who typically asks when you don’t understand something, then you might just be the right person for us. Are you the type of person when if you see something that doesn’t work, you have the courage and resourcefulness to make the change that you think is required?
