Kai Dickens thought he has his dream job of running a children's summer camp. After taking a few bereavement days off for his father's unexpected death he came to a boss that expected him to jump right back into work. He realized that he couldn't work in an environment that cared more about the work than their employee's happiness and wellbeing.
Since then Kai has made it his mission to create better workplace cultures within companies using play as a tool with his company Playology (currently going through a revamp). He speaks, trains and consults on the topic of play and coming home to your inner child.
