Who & What?
Playmeo is an innovative online platform of resources that helps experiential educators, teachers & camp leaders lead remarkably fun group games and programs that make a difference.
How & Why?
We believe that fun group games and activities are one of the most powerful (and attractive) ways to help people connect, and strong relationships amplify the results of whatever you’re trying to get done.
To this end, Playmeo is best known for hosting the world’s largest online database of group games & activities, and offer a variety of professional development resources to help people (like you) create remarkably fun programs that make a difference.
Playmeo’s free ebook shares a glimpse of this approach, and we hope you enjoy it.
Playmeo works best with motivated leaders and educators who don’t know where to start, or are looking for new ideas to engage their participants, strengthen relationships or simply have fun.
Playmeo’s specific niche is experiential educators from large private, independent schools located in the major centers of the world. That said, Playmeo can help thousands of classroom & PE teachers, camp leaders, corporate trainers, outdoor educators, conference organisers and youth leaders in 165 countries around the world.
Playmeo offers a wide variety of useful resources, including:
Online tutorials for beginners and experienced practitioners;
Hands-on, practical training and professional development workshops; and
One-on-one ‘fast-track’ coaching programs.

Our Point of Difference
The difference about Playmeo and its resources is captured in four words – more than just fun.
There are no shortage of books, websites, videos, and training practitioners who will teach you dozens, if not hundreds, of fun games and activities. And this is fine. Very few, if any, however, will help you learn the skills and strategies to understand how to leverage these activities – together with critical facilitation skills – that make a difference.
Today, with school and corporate budgets under constant pressure to squeeze as much value from every dollar, every program has to justify its existence. Having fun just doesn’t cut it anymore. Don’t get me wrong – fun is fundamentally related to your ability to engage a group and invite them to step outside their comfort zone – but it’s not often enough to make a difference.
All of Playmeo’s resources feature a powerful approach to education and recreation, where fun is its most potent weapon. This approach is best known for its ability to engage your participants, or strengthen relationships, or develop team-skills, etc. Imbued with an experiential-based learning methodology, our resources are designed to help you learn the skills and strategies you need to make a difference in the lives and performance of the groups you work with.
Our resources are etched from an intimate understanding of how hard it is to lead a group sometimes – from the unwilling participant to unproductive teams and always being expected to produce more with less (time, money, resources, etc.) Our elite team of contributors – many of the best-selling authors and expert practitioners in their own right – have been there, done that, and share what they have found that works.
