The invstr team is on the road again. This week we’re in Coventry.

MARK FAULKNER (Game Manager, invstr): Here we are in sunny Coventry. We are basically going to be doing a gamification or finance workshop for these students of Coventry University.

Okay guys, let’s go!

MARK FAULKNER (Game Manager, invstr): Ok so just arrived here we are at Coventry business school. So we’re about to go into the room and get ourselves set up. Let’s go!

Today’s event has been organised by Coventry University’s economic society. Mark is here to host a workshop which hopefully will engage the group with the invstr app.

MARK FAULKNER (Game Manager, invstr): What we’re trying to get out of this, I guess, is a collection of happy people at the end of it. People that have learned something that they weren’t expecting maybe or I’ve certainly learn something new who have a good appreciation of what gamification can achieve and how they can potentially get themselves more involved in financial matters because I mean this is an important subject that matters to everybody. We all spend money in some form or another.

But it wasn’t all work. The group was treated to a huge pizza delivery and overall the workshop seemed to be a hit.

STUDENT 1: I thought it was really good, really informative like the fact that it was interactive as well. I wasn’t just speaking who’s getting involved. We had to do a little workshop and  think of ideas. It’s very engaging as well.

STUDENT 2: Yeah, I’ve got a lot out of it as well because it kind of relates to my studies.

STUDENT 3: Very insightful because I’ve used other trade simulators before but this one seems a lot more user-friendly.

It sounds like Mark did a good job too!

STUDENT 1: I thought Mark was great he got everyone’s names right and I find it hard to remember everyone’s name. He has a lot of knowledge on things around the financial markets as well. It’s quite impressive that he knows a lot about other stuff as well as the games.
