Let's Rise Together!
Spice up your next conference or team gathering with healthy doses of FUN & CONNECTION!
People attend conferences not just for the content, but to connect with people in person & have a good time! So next time your members/attendees come together, don’t just sit & wait, hoping that networking will happen automatically.
Unlike typical networking events, LevelUP focuses on creating real connections through activities that help people get out of their comfort zones, sincerely connect, and find ways to support each other.
When we lead with generosity and genuinely want to support others, we create stronger connections and professional friendships that last a lifetime.

How It Works
LevelUP is the ultimate way to hype up a conference or retreat with CONNECTION & FUN! Through multiple rounds of connection games, facilitated conversations and networking tips, participants will learn what it means to network in an AUTHENTIC way.
This FUN authentic networking session can take place right in your office or at any locally scheduled event, conference, retreat, etc. All materials provided and teams of 8-250+ can be accommodated. There are 4 components in creating a more joyous and connected team:
- LevelUP Card - When the participants arrive everyone will get a “LevelUP Card” to fill out. which includes their goal, current challenge and 3 gifts they can offer to others.
- Authentic Networking: Multiple rounds of facilitated ‘authentic networking throughout the 2 days. Each round will consist of:
i) FUN Group Icebreakers Games: (partners or in small groups) to break down barriers, create team bonds and get to know each other.
ii) A ‘Deep’ Question’* to answer to connect on a human level
- Lead By Giving: Timed exchanges using the LevelUp Cards (partners identified through games). Participants will present, exchange and support each other though their LevelUP Cards.
- Fun Finale: Finally we run one final fun team building session to end on a positive high energy note!
*E.g. of ‘Deep Question’ : ‘How do you Motivate Yourself?’ ‘What Are you Most Grateful For Right Now?’ ‘What’s the Best Gift or Advice you’ve ever received?’

Working with Luis was a pleasure! He is a total professional and our team loved the full day Storytelling PLAYshop we did with his team. I would highly recommend him!
Thank you to Luis, Phil and Emmy for a fantastic PLAYshop! We had so much fun while also learning the importance of positivity, engagement, communication and achievement. After three long years of working through the pandemic, this was a great way for us to reconnect, destress and simply have fun. We have not laughed like that in a very long time. Thank you!!
We had FUNdamentals come in to do a Teamwork PLAYshop with our team for half a day. It went better than I expected and I had high hopes! Our employees loved it, our management team loved it and we definitely plan to use their services again! The activities were very relevant to our company and our team and brought us closer together. Thank you so much!
Our store management team completed the "Teamwork" PLAYshop during our national conference. Our team bonded while learning and playing. They were engaged during the 3 hour session and left feeling energized and ready to take on one of their toughest seasons! Between the facilitators positive attitude, the engaging and educational content, and truly "fun" activities, we highly recommend this to anyone looking to reactivate that team spirit, especially after years of remote working.
The Psychological Safety session was great. Luis & Philip were really engaging with high energy and able to engage our participants easily. It was a great session with them.
We booked the Recess Playshop for our team of roughly 150 people. It was a great way to get people moving, interacting and reconnecting. ESPECIALLY after being remote/hybrid for so long. Our team can be a little introverted but the funcilitators got them engaged and having fun with ease. We loved working with FUNdamentals of Play! Thanks for making our team building so fun!
