Of all interjections, by far the most exciting,
The most propitious, the most promising,
Is not “Eureka, I have found it!” — no, there is something better:
It’s the one that starts with “Wait a second… How peculiar…!?”
Humor is to work what peanut butter is to jelly:
Fine on their own — but nicer together, you’ll agree!
Of course, you can’t laugh at everything, and not with everyone.
(I have a joke about this, but I’m not sure it’s a good one)…
The Three Musketeers were right: When you help your neighbor,
When you think about the group, when you help each other,
It’s the whole team that wins — so come on, let’s go,
It’s high time we follow the Musketeers’ motto!
If you try to understand the other person’s feeling,
Moving forward together becomes very natural.
Let’s stop judging for a minute, and let’s try something new:
Put yourself in my shoes and I’ll put myself in yours.
The first step toward being your best self,
Is to admit your mistakes and set them aside.
No self-pride, no ego — it’s hard, let’s be honest…
It takes a lot a guts, but it’s the key to happiness.
We are all different; it’s in our nature.
This basic truth inspired our very own scripture:
Make fairness and justice the center of our world
From the simplest of our acts to the loftiest of our words.
The great Confucius once said something along these ines:
“Get a job you dig, man — then it won’t seem like a grind.”
(He put it better than that, but, you get the gist:
A dedicated worker is a thing not to be missed)
Creating means suggesting, showing, discovering,
Breaking down the barriers of imagination …
On a simple piece of paper, you write — and keep writing,
Using that pen of yours without hesitation.
We’ll deal with everything to comply with requirements,
Schedule, budget, timing, number of participants:
But in no way does this mean that we’re exploitable…
Let’s be reasonable — we’re only human after all!
Launching the agency
It’s the year of Our Lord 2011.
Five brave founders embark on a mad adventure.
Our Holy Grail: developing a 2.0 game to explore Paris with glowing tablets.
As a budding high-tech agency dedicated to team building, we proudly launched Pursuit Gaming, transforming neighborhoods – or even an entire city – into a massive playground.
We created a new range of indoor games, such as Wine Gaming, which invites the player in the world of wine tasting while solving a thrilling crime investigation.
At the same time, we work to infiltrate international exhibitions to identify teambuilding and training agencies abroad that may be interested in our skills, tools and know-how.
This is how our partnering strategy began.
The international family grows
Fast forward to the year 2016. There are still no flying cars, but we now have 30 partners around the world ! That’s a multicultural network that enriches us every day and allows us to respond to all your requests in an effective and relevant manner.
Openness innovation and collaboration: these are the key words of the partnership strategy that we have established, the basis of our global network (and ultimately, of our domination of the universe).
The development of Serious Gaming
Renowned brands such as L’Oréal, for whom we have now organized 180 events, trust our ability to explore new horizons (factory visits, employee training, customer journeys, communications about company values…). We became aware that our clients might have more ambitious needs – beyond “simple” team-building activity – which would allow them to involve their collaborators at a deeper level, such as by solving business problems. To respond to this need, we created the Change & Serious Business Unit and the customizable Escape Games.
A new look for a new life 2.0
A new site, a new logo, new game modes integrating VR technology, and an expanded Change & Serious Gaming offer…
The adventure continues, and our ambitions keep growing.
