MindBlown: Evolution

I had actually already handed in my notice.  I revoked my resignation as a result of doing this experience –
that’s how powerful it was

Senior Leader, Global Fintech, Feb 2024

The Future of Learning is Immersive

MindBlown Evolution combines the best of immersive theatre, escape rooms, games & technology together with the latest in behavioural science, psychology & group dynamics to create a whole new approach to personal & team development, which we call Immersive Development Experiences (IDEs).

Why Immersive Experiences?

True transformation and learning doesn’t happen in a passive classroom – people only really learn through doing and experience.
Extensive research has shown that fun, play and immersion in an activity are the key to effective learning and long-term retention.

As well as being enormous fun, our immersive games were designed to be the perfect environment platform for every participant to experiment, make mistakes, reflect, and apply newfound knowledge. With our activities, the learning sticks. 

Our activities have been specifically designed to replicate and address real business challenges, including:

  • Fostering effective communication and collaboration across your teams, departments and global locations
  • Breaking down silos within your organisation
  • Encouraging staff to surface business (and personal) issues with honesty and confidence
  • Creating environments that encourage freedom to experiment and learn from failure, leading to adaptable individuals and businesses
  • Embracing of new perspectives and conquering fears
  • Promoting a culture of leadership, empowerment and personal responsibly

The experiences have been crafted by true world leaders in their field. Our team includes immersive experience and event creators, the world’s best escape rooms designers, bleeding edge technology deployment providers and masters in behavioural science & group dynamics.

Your taking professional development and mixing it with games & immersive experiences has been
the best professional learning experience I have ever been on
