What our clients say

Eibhlin Prendergast

Bayer AG

“The Long Game with associated masterclasses was the best training that I have undertaken. I really enjoyed the practical and theoretical aspects of the training.
We were given the opportunity to develop our communication skills during the course and I have found opportunities to apply the learning both in my work and in home life…

Chris shared a lot of theory and gave us many useful tools to help us question and classify available information. What I found of most benefit was his approach to continuously make small changes and observe the outcome.

I could not recommend the training more highly.”

Olga Krutalevich

Bayer AG

“My experience with St8 of Play has been awesome! It is a mix of short academic studies, much practical learning and emotionally driven phycological therapy in the fields of communication, information analysis, situation awareness, and leadership.

I am so grateful to Phil and his team for the development of a growth mindset. Every participant finds their way to be efficient and successful. No doubt, it is a valuable investment to my personal and professional development.”

Denise Boehme

Bayer AG

“A great training for me is insightful and fun while doing it and – similarly important- has a recognizable sustainable impact in my everyday (work) life. The LongGame provided by St8ofPlay is such a great training!
The combination of a welcoming and safe environment, fun and exciting games, informative master classes and 1:1 feedback over a period of several months, enabled me to grow my leadership confidence as well as refine my conversation skills particular in challenging interactions.”

Christian Peschanel

Bayer AG

“I think The Long Game is a program that provides great skills in analytics and influence. We have been searching for something like that for quite some time – happy that we found it now at St8 of Play.

And our issue managers keep telling us that it provides value, not only for the big challenges, but that it has changed their everyday workstyle as well.”

Our impact: The Long Game

In February 2022, we completed the Long Game, a 6-month training program with a cohort of Bayer Local Issue Managers. Now months later, we asked them to tell us about the impact that the program had on them.
