Meet the team and understand our values.
We have built a team around a deep understanding of Insights Discovery.
A balanced team to build brilliant board games.
Our glorious leader, Founder and Managing Director, Elliot Symonds, recognises that he needs to be surrounded by those who can challenge him. They also have to have a deeper understanding of finance and business strategy than he does. Which, to be fair, is already vast and extensive.
