Topaasia games are the best way I’ve seen to conduct a quality and goal-oriented discussion session without an external facilitator. The game quickly directs the conversation to the right themes.

Playing helps to effectively identify risks, opportunities, and strengths. Things identified through gaming can be put into practice quickly.

An excellent way to achieve dialogue. I would recommend to anyone who wants to get people in their organization to discuss with each other and bring their own ideas to the daylight.

Santtu Seppänen, VP of Sales, Trustmary Finland Ltd

Topaasia has a pre-thought process and it makes it easy to get even a bigger team to discuss. However, the job will not be left to the level of the discussion, but the process directed to the most important issue (topaasia) and to think about concrete measures.

Tarja Ihalainen, Chief Renewal Officer, Technology Industries of Finland

Topaasia helps to create a snapshot with a dialogue where players participate by choosing views and by justifying their own choices. In addition to this, in very short period of time you get to concrete action points
