Bulbb exists to help individuals, teams and organisations unlock their hidden potential. We do this by creating meaningful dialogues in playful facilitated workshops and meetings – using LEGO® Serious Play® and other playful techniques – that stimulate creativity, breakthrough thinking and psychological safety.
We work across strategy, team development, innovation, service design and change – whether in standalone workshops or as part of a wider initiative within your organisation.
We also run hands-on leadership sessions at conferences and seminars that rapidly give delegates the opportunity to play with ideas and have deep conversations that go beyond the usual networking.

About LEGO® Serious Play®
LSP is a facilitated thinking, communication and problem solving method for use with groups. It uses LEGO bricks to build stories about the intangible ideas you work with in your business and brings them into the physical world through the use of metaphor and play.
Participants are led through a series of questions developed to suit the purpose of the workshop. Each participant builds his or her own three-dimensional LEGO model in response to the facilitator’s questions using specially selected LEGO bricks. These 3D models serve as the basis for group discussion, knowledge sharing, problem solving and decision making.
LSP taps into new neuroscience discoveries and the link between hand and brain. It draws on extensive research from the fields of business, organisational development, psychology and learning. It builds on learning theories of contructivism and constructionism – that we can build new learning in the mind by building in the world.
What this means in practice is that everyone participates all the time, thinking with their hands, listening with their eyes, surfacing knowledge they didn’t know they had and collaborating to create new shared knowledge.
