3 Good Reasons to Come to PlayTank

If you’ve landed on this blog, I’m guessing you recently heard about PlayTank. You may be wondering, “What is it? Should I attend?” Great questions! You’ve come to the right place. In this blog, you will learn what PlayTank is and 3 good reasons why you (yes, you!) should attend.

What is PlayTank?

PlayTank is a 90-minute event for professionals to network and explore leadership topics through the science of play. Research shows that play activates areas of the brain associated with creativity and learning. It also releases neurotransmitters that boost our positive emotions.

In many cases, adult learning environments can feel stressful, serious, and tense. At Ziksana, we use play to create environments where adults feel excited and safe to take risks. PlayTank is an opportunity for you to experience what it’s like to have a playful mindset as you learn and connect with others! 

3 Good Reasons to Come to PlayTank

  1. Boost Your Energy & Optimism 

Wondering how to bring energy to a team or how to manage stress in your team? PlayTank will give you new ideas and perspectives! Play triggers the release of neurotransmitters like dopamine that elevate your mood, reduce stress, and accelerate your ability to learn new things. 

At PlayTank, adults get to be their silly, imperfect, and creative selves. This type of experience provides a much-needed break from the stress, anxiety, and worry that wears many of us down on a daily basis. Ever heard that laughter is the best medicine? It’s actually true, and we guarantee that you’ll laugh at PlayTank! 

  1. Connect with Other Professionals For Real 

Have you ever been to a professional networking event where making meaningful connections felt like hard work? Not at PlayTank! It is our business to help you make authentic connections with others through memorable, shared experiences. 

By playing together, we get the opportunity to show up as our authentic selves. Play has the uncanny ability to cut through the typical small talk and forge a direct line to a deeper connection in the workplace.

  1. Challenge Yourself, Productively 

If you’re feeling some hesitancy towards the idea of playing, then PlayTank is a fantastic opportunity for you to challenge yourself! Many adults limit their learning opportunities by being hesitant to engage in new experiences, especially if they don’t know exactly what to expect.

The willingness to try something new is an essential part of being a successful professional and lifelong learner. Challenge yourself to try something new and experience the power of play firsthand!

We love bringing people together through play and building connected teams so much that we offer PlayTank at no charge! That’s right – it’s FREE!
