About the Author:

Dr Jason Fox is a global authority on motivation strategy anddesign, and he’s on an epic quest to liberate the world frompoorly designed work.

After sneaking into the Ivory Towers of academia and levellingup with a PhD in record time, Jason now works with forward-thinkingbusiness leaders, showing them how to use the best elements ofmotivation science and game design to influence behaviour, driveprogress and make clever happen.

He has advised on motivation strategy, change management andgood gamification design to a range of organisations — frommultinational companies like PepsiCo, Gartner and Toyota; to thebig banks, universities, mining, telecommunication andpharmaceutical companies; right through to grassroots educationalorganisations and savvy startups.

Jason lives in Melbourne, Australia, the hipster capital ofbeards and good coffee. When not gallivanting around the worldspeaking at events (as the science-based alternative to thefist-pumping rah-rah motivational corporate speakers) or immersedin game-changing work with clients, Jason enjoys partaking inextreme sports like reading, coffee snobbery and fruitninja.
