He has seen how the power of play opens people up to new connections and how it can change the environment of a school or a corporation.
When asked about the power of play, Geoff will tell you “play is like a really catchy song. You hear it and start humming along and the next thing you know, a bunch of people are singing along at the top of their lungs!”
