Eija introduces case-studies based on her experiences on implementing a novel virtual brainstorming environment into corporate world.

We believe in integrating business, science and artistic thinking. Our approach implemented in AltoGame design and concept is rooted in Eija Mäkirintala’s research work and her long experience in creative top-performance & well-being training and coaching. The method used in AltoGame exploits latest scientific multi-disciplinary findings in action-based learning. It also makes use of arts-derived interventions.
