Nick Gianoulis is founder of The Fun Dept.—a consulting and training company that has been featured on CNN, BBC News, The Washington Post, TEDx and numerous other media outlets, and has clients ranging from Fortune 100 companies to those with as few as 10 employees.

Known as “The Godfather of Fun,” Gianoulis began his company after experiencing firsthand the enhanced culture and business results of fun during his 20-year corporate management tenure with a company that embraced a work-hard-play-hard culture. Gianoulis is also co-author of “Playing It Forward.”

His company has delivered more fun in the workplace than any other company in the world. Gianoulis believes building brief, consistent and engaging activities into the corporate culture is more important than ever thanks to the presence of millennials, who will make up 75 percent of the workforce by 2025.
