Why Choose Directors of the Extraordinary

Home > Why Us

Programs founded in science for experiences that are anything but textbook

Our processes are founded in behavioural psychology, peer learning and the science of gamification.

Studies have shown that immersing people in an experience significantly increases information retention – and at heart, we all crave the connection and engagement of being at the heart of an experience.

We’re deeply unsatisfied if we’re doing something that someone else has already done. That innovative thinking drives our business forward – creating new ways for teams to connect through discovery and fun.

Where extraordinary fun meets extraordinary function

We use interactive design techniques to craft experiences that engage people in new ways. This approach does more than break down barriers – it creates a safe space for creative expression and encourages positive problem solving. Combined with our game-changing approach, it drives lasting memories, information retention, genuine connection and personal change.

Studies have proven that experiential learning – where your team are immersed in the content – improves retention. By gamifying (yep, it’s a thing) the learning process, we’ve helped hundreds of teams to connect with their company values, with their purpose and with each other through experience-based learning that shines a light on the diversity of talent in every group

From passive to active participants

Immersing staff, customers and students in personalised, interactive, engaging experiences that take them from passive observers to active participants is the new frontier. Today, putting your people in the centre of an experience is the secret sauce to creating organic engagement and social media shares, and cements learning retention. Interactive experiences give you the power to activate your brand and change how your people work, learn and play.
