Where it all started

Businessgames originated in 2002 from the passion of ‘making boring things fun’ and ‘making difficult matters more comprehensible’. Over twenty years ago Gijs developed his first game in his attic room. Now, he is surrounded by a team of inspiring professionals, each with a different background. Part of our team excels in guiding groups during live and online performances. Others develop playful custom games for the most diverse issues and customers, and some work on the right ‘look and feel’ of our game material. In other words, a balanced team of go-getters, who are happy to work for you with a lot of passion and expertise.

With all our knowledge and experience we can promptly react to your questions. We believe in doing it perfectly.. or not at all! This means we get more than half of our business by word of mouth. Has this made you curious to discover more? Do not wait any longer and contact us. Call us at +31 76 515 53 49 or send an email to info@businessgames.com.

Loes de Coo

Operational Manager

Every day since 2018, I am standing with a big smile in the Businessgames workplace. I translate the customer demand to a live or online Business Game. I can give free rein to my creativity and the game facilitation gives me a lot of energy. In addition, I look after the production of game material and I am the point of contact for our suppliers. Outside of work I like to seek out fun with friends and family and I call myself a real ‘Burgundian’.

Celine Dekker

Graphic Designer

At Businessgames I make sure that the creative mix of the lay-out, typography, color and images in every game is aesthetically pleasing, clear and on-brand. It always gives me a great feeling when a design is in its final stages and used for its intended purpose. Alongside my creative work, my vocal cords and green thumbs also regularly come into action at the office.

Creativity flows through my veins. This is something that I can apply every day in my function as project and event manager at Businessgames. From my past as an professional athlete I’ve established a drive to get the best out of myself and the people around me. With a touch of (bad) humor and my supportive nature, I work with my colleagues to deliver qualitative games for our customers. Creating a game from A to Z and facilitating it is the reason I enjoy my work on the daily.
