Welcome to the Toybox! Come play!

Hey there! Welcome to the Toybox 😃

I’m Cat and I’m passionate about helping you to make learning more fun.

I truly believe that if people can enjoy their learning experiences, they will also remember and act on them more too! And as facilitators and trainers that’s what it’s all about right?

So I’m here to help you make that happen.

In the Toybox you’ll find a selection of games and activities, all designed and ready for you to plug them straight into your workshops. You’ll get all the materials you need to use them straight away – instructions on how to set up and run them, handouts, slides, timings etc (what you get varies depending on the activity).

I want to make it easy for you, to save you time and to help you design workshops you can’t wait to deliver.

Want to try a few freebies out and see what my style is like? Sign up to the Playschool.

Ready to dive straight in and get the lot? Buy the Toybox BIG Bundle!

The Card Shop

The Card Shop is an activity that helps illustrate the importance of change management within organisations. It is designed to replicate poor change management by making people feel uncomfortable, frustrated and uncertain as they progress through each stage. They will then discuss the impact of this on them individually and begin to understand why change management is important.

Change the Conversation

Organisational change is hard. It's even harder for those who feel the change is being 'done to them'.

It can be hard to have useful conversations when people are feeling negative about the change. And even harder to get them to accept, adopt and recognise the benefits of it.

But wouldn't it be great if you could?!
