She has created games for the World Bank, the Olympic Games, the American Heart Association®, the New York Public Library®, and many more.

"Jane McGonigal is the most engaging and eminent speaker on how to apply the principles of games to solve real-life challenges and drive performance," said Giles House, Vice President, Marketing Communications and Products, CallidusCloud®.
