Here's what Ron Roberts and ACT can do for you:

  • Provide services at whatever level you want: ACT can design a brief game or exercise on a specific topic or a week-long supplemental simulation to form the core of your training workshop.

  • Work from where you are now. ACT can help you plan an experiential workshop from scratch or add activities to accompany and enrich your training, presentation, speech or your complete workshop.

  • Work in a variety of formats. Ron had invented over 50 different interactive experiential games and learning experiences. (He currently holds 6 patents and numerous trademarks on original games that are sold nationwide). ACT creates training games, simulations, role plays, card games, board games, toys, videos, Musical CD’s and instruments, original songs and poems, large group games, and any combination of formats to suit your needs.

  • ACT’s games allow for full deep frequent debriefs Many games designed by other companies are mindless, physical exercises or games that are basic one level. Simplistic games that do not relate to the teaching goals and objectives. ACT’s Games pose dilemmas and challenges that have multiple solutions at multiple levels depending on what the player reads into it. Often programs require both tactical and strategic analysis, and are mentally stimulating. Players do not always experience the moment of truth in the first game round but struggle for just the right amount of time to achieve success.

  • ACT’s games keep everyone fully engaged. Ron Roberts maintains total control and involvement and builds key factors into the design. All participants are challenged to explore learning, “get the skills they need” at the level that they are ready to assimilate, and are forced to see themselves and their personalities as they really are live in the game itself.

  • ACT’s Design is very rapid. Due to the years of experience that all of ACT’s staff have at their disposal, there are hundreds of various games and game technologies which they can choose from to create the best game for your needs.

  • ACT adds enormous value to your training product at a low cost. ACT can work with you through telephone, Internet, email, and fax. ACT can send you the finished product in the form of a prototype, reproducible masters or as email attachments.

  • ACT’s games fit your needs perfectly. Between owning a Counseling Center for 12 years and teaching management and communications as an Adjunct Professor at Penn State University, Ron has developed a natural intuition to develop games that fit the needs of the client with incredible accuracy. Ron’s CAD-CAM mind and inductive thinking help to create unique games that are always exciting, fun to play and one of a kind.

  • ACT has many experts to meet your design needs. The combined staff of ACT has designed hundreds of training games and activities that are used around the world. Ron has appeared on ABC, NBC, CNN Live, QVC, Newsweek and Games Magazine.
