Trudi Boatwright

Experience Designer. Facilitator. Play Specialist

Trudi is a rare mixture of Experiential Learning, Design Thinking, Performing Arts and Play. She has spent over 20 years taking people like you on playful journeys. 

After many years designing experiences for people to truly engage in learning, from prisons to police forces, accountants to agile teams,  she is now on a personal mission to show the world that being playful is more than childs play – it’s a powerful primal tool that connects us and helps us comprehend things. A power we are only now beginning to recognise. 

With a Masters of Design Futures and as faculty at the Institute for Experiential Learning, she shows you a sneak peak behind the curtain at how she’s used her roots in theatre making to dazzle and connect people and found ways to use this for strong, strategic organisational outcomes. 

She’ll be leaving her ‘jazz hands’ at home too. This is a personal invitation to digest the nuanced skills she’s spent 20 years perfecting. And she can’t wait to share it.
