The Naked Ape PLAY Workshops

Our Naked Ape PLAY workshops are designed for transformation. A huge drop in empathy has resulted in disconnected teams, cultural erosion and blockages to innovation. This impacts on the bottom line and longevity of any business.

Our focus is on personal development in group workshops - emotional intelligence, productivity, collaboration, creativity and simply being human.

We believe PLAY is the ultimate tool for human connection and the number one driver to facilitate change. What it means to be human is ever more important and we’ve developed bespoke services to help organizations thrive in its pursuit of emotional and social intelligence.

Prepare to be transformed!


Why play?

The PlayLab was excellent. Naked Ape took a gathering of brains, pioneers in their fields and got them out of their heads and into their bodies, rewinding time remembering what it was like to feel curiosity , awe and wonder. A group of strangers fully dropping their guards, laughing and enjoying playing and figuring out solutions together in your lighthearted but meaningful Play Lab, helping us all remember we are children at heart
— Brenda Baccus, New York
The PlayLab workshop was full of humour, play and inspiration. It was so fun to improvise, to remember yourself in childhood, to make up a story and play! It was especially interesting to play with people whom you know in a completely different context. Amazing framework for finding new impressions and ideas!”
