Game Frame: Using Strategy for Success

Friday, May 13
12 p.m. (PT)/2 p.m. (Central)/3 p.m. (ET)
A Live & Online Broadcast

For Beyond 50's "Personal Growth" talks, listen to an interview with Aaron Dignan. He makes a unique and compelling case for how digital gaming strategies can be applied to corporate performance. He makes strategies of video gaming immensely approachable - if not mandatory - to growing a business. Many bosses, teachers, and parents fall prey to fear-mongering and worry that games are at best a useless distraction, and at worst a serious impediment to learning and productivity.

Painted CavesLabyrinth: A Soul's Journey
For Beyond 50's "History" talks, listen to an interview with Jodi Lorimer. Find out about the Labyrinth in the Paleolithic. The first modern humans in Paleolithic Europe painted the labyrinth journey to the Otherworld on the walls of deep caves (in photo above) over 32,000 years ago. Ancient shamans mapped the route of the labyrinth revealing the complex minds and spirit of a sophisticated people. To understand the significance of this mythological symbol requires that we dig into the very core of human experience and tread the paradoxical paths of belief and biology, history and myth, and discover where they cross over into transcendence, at the Center.

Gaming for Peak Performance
Pac Man
Beyond 50 encourages you to tune in and join in the conversation with Aaron Dignan of "Game Frame." Business owners and managers can learn the Art of (Video) Gaming Strategy to produce peak learning conditions and accelerated achievement.

If you've every experienced burn out or boredom at work, then find out how to address the root cause of it through the psychology of game mechanics.

According to Dignan, we may be living in the Golden Age of Games. That is, this may be the last moment when games are still relatively distinct from real life and the rest of our media landscape.

The ground has already started to shift beneath our feet. If you played Pac-Man in 1975, you weren't thinking about a Pac-Man movie or comic book spin-off. You weren't reading about Pac-Man being acquired in the "Wall Street Journal." Nor were you connecting with friends halfway across the world inside the maze of the game. And you certinly weren't accessing Pac-Man multliple times a day from your numerous mobile devices. You were just playing a video game, pure and simple. For better or worse, the days of pure and simple are numbered.
