Over the past 15 years, we have developed an extensive network of international colleagues and affiliates who use our products and support the development of our exercises. Many are exclusive representatives of our products and tools and have translated or reset the game in their locales.

We are fortunate to include these people as our friends and most pleased that they find our products and approach to be useful within their own consulting and training businesses.


We have a number of collaborating organizations throughour India, offering both large event deliveries as well as consulting and train the trainer programs.


Our Japanese associates, Work Happiness, have done a complete Japanese resetting of

People's Republic of China

My good friend Michael Nelson is an American who has been living in China for many years and has recently relocated to Beijing. Formerly working in training and development with Nokia, he has closely collaborated with me on what are The Silk Road Series of exercises. The first of these is his adaptation of Dutchman into

The Silk Road Adventure! - The Search for The Gold of Loulan

We have a number of our other exercises available for delivery, including South China Sea Quest and Everest!

We've run this in a couple of different versions. Michael can also deliver the Pro Version of Dutchman in Chinese and English, simultaneously, which makes for a very interesting cross-cultural team building event.
