“It was obvious from the comments and feedback we received from our attendees that yours was a presentation well worth attending. The general consensus was that yours was an educational and entertaining session that involved the audience in a fun and competitive way. Your product is something that they, and I, found incredibly new and innovative to the already arms length of team building opportunities out there.”

CNW Group

“For our annual sales conference, we were looking for a captivating guest speaker who could talk to the team about the convergence of traditional and new media. Doug Walker was a perfect fit. Doug shared his experiences with the Rock Paper Scissor society, explaining how a traditional news release ignited a viral online campaign that turned a simple event into an international phenomenon. Following this amazing presentation, Doug facilitated our very own RPS competition which was a great way to kick off our three day team building conference. Doug’s session was relevant, educational, energetic and lots of fun.”

TD Waterhouse

“We recently hired Doug Walker at the World RPS Society to run a Rock Paper Scissors tournament for us at TD Waterhouse. This was a networking event to develop a strong working relationship between two separate divisions in our organization. The RPS tournament was a fantastic and unique ice-breaker for people who didn’t know each other very well. It quickly got people from the two divisions interacting in a fun environment. This type of informal interaction leads to improved morale and better staff communication, and provides a great foundation for working together as a team moving forward. I highly recommend the services of the RPS Events for corporate functions and events.”
