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 fuse technology and storytelling to create engaging, immersive experiences that play out in the world around us.

2010. Inception.

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 transmedia crime thriller produced by Robert and written by Simon Wood.

From inception we’ve been on our own adventure: experimenting and developing technology, processes and people to deliver engaging, participatory experiences in the fields of entertainment, marketing, healthcare, recruitment and training. We believe that our proprietary mixed-reality platform, Conducttr, can transform all these industries.

2018. Crisis Simulation.

Since 2018 we’ve focused our business exclusively on crisis simulation. We offer crisis exercises an unparalleled realism that allows participants to build confidence and directly transfer the experience to their jobs.

Our thought-leadership in participatory transmedia experiences informs product development and the creative process of building realistic, interactive storyworlds rich in detail for trainee exploration.

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 by transforming the passing of time into life.

Be remarkable.
