My guest on this week’s episode, Dave Blum, transforms different places in the world into living board games. He is the Founder and CEO of Dr. Clue, a team-building treasure hunt that builds trust, camaraderie, and empathy within the teams of some of the largest organizations in the world. His games give team members a common goal outside of the traditional office environment. He created his unique business based on what he thought he could contribute to the world. I’m grateful to have been part of Dave’s inspiring and creative organization early in my career.
