The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviews board game junky and famed speaker Richard Mulholland.

Richard Mulholland started his career as a Rock music roadie, operating lights for bands such as Iron Maiden and Def Leppard.

Today he’s the owner of Missing Link, South Africa’s largest presentation firm.

Mulholland, a highly regarded speaker, regularly addresses South Africa’s largest corporations and guest lectures on courses for The Cape Graduate School of Business (GSB), and the Gordon Institute of Business Science (GIBS).

He’s a board game junkie.

And he reckons you should be one too, if you want your business to succeed.

Say what?!

The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviewed Mulholland for his weekly “The Science Of” feature.

For more detail; listen to the interview in the audio below (and/or scroll down for quotes from it).

I realised… if I played games the way I run my company I’d never win… I played my business to not lose…

Richard Mulholland, Missing Link

The ‘victory condition’ is the condition on which I measure your success, or failure… Businesses struggle with this...

Richard Mulholland, Missing Link

I have 900 board games… There’ll be 3000 games released this year…

Richard Mulholland, Missing Link

You don’t need gamification in your business…
