Playmaker has remarkably been working with PoV, developing a new strategy and business model. It took the lead, and its role has been absolutely crucial in empowering PoV’s management to go through a new path of leadership with confidence.
During 2021 and 2022, the cooperation with Playmaker played a key role in evolving the path regarding the organization changing and working theories, especially from the perspective of different societal capitals and their role in the ecological development system, where the collective efforts reflected in the progression of the organization's identity, in addition to improving the evaluation and interactive training tools, along with working with community initiatives and community cohesion projects.

Working together with Playmakers' founder, Mahmoud Ramaden, has been an enriching journey of exploration, visioning, and integrating the nature of complex human systems. Our shared interest in facilitating the development of vibrant communities, led by passionate and talented entrepreneurs, has been the nexus of our collaboration. Playmakers is an inspiring space to dream and find actionable solutions that are unique to each community we serve.
Mrs. Lina Chawaf, the CEO of Radio Rozana
The capacity building workshop conducted with Playmaker, and based on values and an interactive innovative approach, was a turning point for the sense of co-ownership among Rozana team members. Everyone felt comfortable speaking up, discovering themselves and others, and determining their place in the organization through their personal values and the shared values of the team, therefore, the workshop created a sense of teamwork and fostered a supportive environment within the workplace.

Community capital, entrepreneurial mindset, spatial mind map, and many other terminologies and approach were only known to us through social media platforms, however, with Playmaker being a pioneer in interactive education and training, we have experienced and applied these aspects.

Mr. Hannes Siebert, Co-founder of Peace Appeal Foundation & Board Member of CSI, Lebanon.
I've had the privilege of working with Mahmoud Ramadan / Playmaker since the beginning of the Syrian conflict. His visionary thinking and 360 degree perspectives led to many groundbreaking innovations in a devastating unfolding conflict that caused unmeasurable human suffering. The CSI/SI that he jointly designed and initiated, launched "peace assets" networks and created "echo system" which opened new windows and possibilities for civil society interventions during the conflict.
