We are a diverse, dynamic team of learning professionals, who are dedicated to building RSVP Design’s reputation as a leading global player in the field of experiential learning.
Our support comes from a network of fellow practitioners and academics who keep our work grounded and informed.

Geoff has a lead role in RSVP’s Learning Design business & is one of the founders and owners of RSVP Design. After many years of using the outdoors as a learning environment, Geoff has progressively moved his professional focus towards the design of experiential educational content. Much of his time is spent working with major corporations and business schools around the world. Geoff is responsible for much of the functional design of our experiential learning tools and alongside Ann, the creation of new experiential learning products and programmes.
Anne is one of the founders and owners of RSVP Design, originally providing a huge amount of support in the background to the rest of the team from administration support in terms of finance, to training delivery and supplier and customer administration. She now lends her artistic talents to the layout of many of the facilitator guides for our products, and layouts for our marketing and product component materials.
Nanette moved from working in the background for RSVP Design from 2003 to very much in the foreground in 2018! Originally Nanette helped manage our payroll and provided book-keeping support on a consulting basis but we were delighted to welcome her into a permanent role with us as Finance Manager to provide much needed support. Nanette manages our Finance function, ensuring our customers get an efficient invoicing process and that our online shop provides accurate information. She also ensures that our staff and suppliers are paid accurately and on time.
Kim first joined RSVP Design back in 2006 after graduating with a BA (Hon) in Marketing. She took a break when her daughter came along in 2013 but returned to the RSVP team after a few years. Kim manages Sales and Marketing activities for the business. She has a firm knowledge of all of RSVP Design’s training tools and supports customers in helping them with their learning requirements. Kim is also responsible for coordinating our online and in person product demonstrations and workshops and she will often be the first point of contact for our customers.
Based in our HQ in Paisley, Graeme has been working with RSVP Design since 2016 and manages our product assembly section and fulfilling customer orders. He tries to ensure that both our International Distributors and our HQ always have an appropriate level of stock on hand to fulfill rush orders! He does this by liaising with all our suppliers and keeping our materials arriving regularly! He also ensures that all customer orders are packed securely and dispatched on time!
RSVP Design is a trusted partner for impactful experiential exercises in leadership development in our courses at IMD. RSVP Design’s experiential exercises provide participants with hands-on, immersive experiences, enabling active engagement and profound reflection. By simulating real-world scenarios, their exercises allow participants to practice and refine their leadership skills in a safe and supportive environment. What sets RSVP Design apart is their ability to suggest exercises to meet our course objectives and participant profiles. On the rare occasion when they do not have an exercise to hand, they take the time to understand our challenges and work with us to design exercises that directly address our needs – RSVP Design’s amazing “T Trade” exercise was the product of collaboration between RSVP Design and IMD faculty.
There is no doubt at all about the value of RSVP Design’s contribution to this project. The residential programme in Ireland at the start of the project was a defining moment in the team’s success and the total training investment was less than 0.01% of the project cost yet was highly significant in achieving our business results.
What’s terrific about working with people at RSVP Design is their willingness to problem- solve with you. They go the extra mile to help you find, or refine, existing products that will help you design Wow! into your educational experiences. So helpful and easy to work with.
I am focusing on a leadership project on university campuses in Kenya. My work includes team development for students, and a company that provides team development for corporates. The goal of the company is to raise funds for the projects I run on the university campuses. I ordered two sets of Webmaster and Colourblind several years ago and LOVE your products! They have connected with everyone, both students and the corporate companies. I decided to try more of your products as I have found so much value in the other two. Thank you for creating such amazing products! :-)
