Pete Smith has been involved in facilitation since 1971. Belonging from South Africa, his passion to go beyond as a learning and development guru began at university when he was appointed as a tutor in Philosophy. His career has spanned HR, Management Consulting, Marketing, Lecturing and Entrepreneurship. In all these disciplines, he has played the role of a Facilitator. Fifteen years ago Pete started Teamgel, a company focused on facilitating LEGO® workshops aimed at making business teams more efficient and effective. Through exclusively designed LEGO® trainings and workshops, he has trained around 1000 professionals from Europe, Africa, South Asia and Middle East.

He strongly believe in achieving a shared bond (team building) and promoting experiential learning. This is done by reaching a state of flow, the ideal platform for LEGO SERIOUS PLAY.


It is a team problem solving and decision making methodology using LEGO pieces to think metaphorically in order to access collective wisdom and turn it into committed consensus ready for action. All along the way the methodology LEGO SERIOUS PLAY itself strengthens the team’s shared bond in a similar way that LEGO SERIOUS FUN does.
