Business Poker

A review of our workshops (some of them)

September 29, 2015 - Business Poker for product managers (english)
Business Poker - Team building before strategy meeting
A short workshop with a poker game (2.5h) with Claudia Chinello

After a brief introduction, where everyone presented himself with a little story, the group got a texas hold'em poker explenation and while playing we discussed business topics. After two and a half hours, the atmosphere was excellent and the two most outstanding players were awarded with a small price.
Feedback from the customer:
"Dynamic, informative, with a lot of fun and very good team feedback. Miss Chinello is efficient and flexible in organizing the workshop and introduced the team perfectly into the theme "business poker". The workshop is perfect for a team of 7-10 people, Claudia Chinello's tips from the pokertable are a good basis for the discussion of business topics. I can recommend this workshop."

March 14, 2015 - Spring Conference JCI Estonia in Tartu
"Want to succed in business? Play Poker!"
Workshop and short poker game (total time 1.25h) with Claudia Chinello

The participants learned what poker is and also what it is not or what it not should be. We can use a lot of valuable poker strategies in our daily business work. And we should recognize if our counterpart will try to manipulate (bluff) us. If we have a good product, we don't need to bluff. But others maybe try to sell us things in a way, that we hardly cannot resist to buying them. By bringing the "playing mindset" in, we can have more fun and be more successful in our entire life - not just in business.
