Our Story

Our mission is to make everyone’s life an adventure.

We believe that through adventure everyone can achieve their full potential in life.

To create adventures, we bring together technology and storytelling to create immersive experiences that play out in the world around us.

Born in 2010

Development of Conducttr started in Spring 2010 by Robert Pratten and Alexey Ossikine. In Jan 2011 Conducttr launched with a proof-of-concept project called Lowlifes – a crime thriller produced by Robert and written by Simon Wood. The transmedia experience was delivered as a 10 episode webseries, an ARG, a 12 chapter blog series and a novella.

Since this time we’ve been on our own adventure: a thoughtful R&D period experimenting and developing technology, processes and people in entertainment, marketing, healthcare, recruitment and training. We believe that our proprietary mixed-reality platform, Conducttr, can transform all these industries but our biggest struggle remains a fight against the status quo.

Our clients are among the most innovative in the world because they dare to seek new ways to improve the wellbeing and performance of their teams, their customers and their communities. Together we’re sharing and creating our own adventure.

Be remarkable.
