Gamification. Game-based learning. E-learning. All terms you’ve most likely come across in relation to staff training. But how can they impact your business?

Are they all the same? Just how effective are these ‘games’ in getting actual results? Both for engaging your staff, and for moving the needle on your KPIs? And with remote training and onboarding now a daily reality for millions, is gamified-learning really a substitute for teaching face-to-face?

Join gamification pioneer, author, and international speaker Yu-Kai Chou in conversation with Attensi Co-CEO and cofounder, Trond Aas, to address these questions and much more.

Yu-Kai Chou – President, The Octalysis Group


“Gamification exists to create a business value. It uses entertainment as a means to an end, to accomplish greater things.”

“24% of any company is actively disengaged. They’re not just passive, they proactively don’t work hard. Motivating them is a strong aspect [of gamification].”

Trond Aas – CEO & Co-Founder, Attensi


“Great gamification leads to repeating the content. Driving repetition and triggering emotional responses really assist in making gamification very impactful.”

“What is it that you want to impact? What are the parameters you want to move?… Gamification done well should impact your KPIs.”

Group classrooms are not an option for the foreseeable future.

❌ E-learning software is too linear, too restrictive, and does not engage like an interactive format should.
