Keynote. Playful Thinking, Daniel Teitelbaum
Special Guest Keynote Speaker
Our Keynote Speaker this year is the multi-skilled Daniel Teitelbaum, lead facilitator at Playful Thinking, radio broadcaster*, comedy cabaret performer, an Associate Teacher of Design at Monash University and Chair of the Board for Tiny Non-Profit, an organisation dedicated to project led advocacy for sustainable living and dignified housing for all Australians.
Play shapes the brain, opens the imagination and invigorates the soul” Dr Stuart Brown. In this keynote, Daniel Teitelbaum will convince you that play is more than fun and games. Our drive to play is at the heart of how we make meaning, is essential to our self-expression, guides our values and defines our communities. Discover how powerful play can be in your life.
Daniel leads people to discover playful tools from education, game design, theatre, philosophy, psychology and science to apply to the challenges of modern organisations and groups. Look forward to Daniel igniting Valbec’s Conference with playfulness on November 25th, 2021.
