Marko Rillo
Marko had the idea to write the book and was Sean's co-author.

Marko's passion for and early adoption of the LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® method led him to establish the
SeriousPlayPro community website that now has over 2000 members.

Marko first heard about the LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® method at a conference with serious play guru Professor Johan Roos in 2005.

In 2007 he started his
doctoral studies at the University of St. Gallen in Switzerland where a former Imagination Lab research fellow professor Claus D. Jacobs became one of his academic mentors.

Marko participated in one of the last LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® certification training sessions that was provided directly under the auspices of the LEGO® Corporation. He has facilitated at tiny start-ups and international multinationals, he has also helped create a vision for a country.
