I came across PlayAction International while scrolling through Twitter. Something about the organization caught my attention and I felt called to send them a message to connect and learn more. I quickly received a response from the marketing team and was connected with Murielle Maupoint, CEO of the organization and my guest this week.
In this episode, we discuss leading through COVID, what play is and why it is critical, not only for child development, but for workplace cultures. We chat about creativity and how following your curiosity can lead to better performance, both individually and as a team.
I am a Dreamer. I am a Do-er, I am a Believer. I believe every one of us can do things we never imagined possible. I believe we each have far more power, courage and passion than we give ourselves credit for. I believe the world can be a better place. I believe we can each make a massive difference to our lives, those of others and the world through our individual and collective thoughts and actions. I believe that we have a responsibility to make this life the best life we can possibly experience. An inspired and inspirational life full of passion, purpose, love and fulfilment. My aim is to facilitate and motivate as many people as possible to stop existing and to start living!
Recently recognised as Inspiring Leader 2020 for outstanding leadership during COVID.

About Play Action International
We work in disadvantaged communities, focusing on enhancing children’s learning, development and access to education through play. We take an innovative child-centred approach to education and use the power of play to transform the lives of children through our play programmes.
We work with some of the most vulnerable children and communities in the world, supporting children living in extreme poverty and those experiencing danger, displacement, conflict and natural/humanitarian disasters.
We work with children, parents, caregivers, teachers, community leaders and NGOs to highlight the importance of play and enable them to integrate play-based initiatives for enhanced education, health and development outcomes.
