Simply Gamify

Brief Bios

Marichiel Dela Cruz-Gutierrez (Mari) majored in Finance and Banking, and later, a Certificate in Teaching. She originally conceived i-TeachOptions as an open-source workshop that anyone can tweak and apply to their own business needs. Later on, she established Mari Gutierrez Events weddings and Bellentee for event organization and logistics. Having to work on i-TeachOptions reflects her underlying belief: that a game-driven education can be far more dynamic in learning, as long as it is removed from its complexities and stripped down to bare essentials.

Theodore Marc Gutierrez, RFP® (Marc) has remained committed to innovation in financial education. As a financial planner, he takes a look at the world of finance not so much as an academic but as a curious explorer--a documentary filmmaker--with an eye towards personal fulfillment.

And because he thinks more in terms of GNH (Gross National Happiness) than GDP, he established i-TeachOptions as a B2B service fixated on the role of happiness. The company pioneered formal human resource gaming and offers unique services on the creation and design of Gamification in the workplace. For this reason, he spends the bulk of his time inventing new games and applying game elements to various settings where no one thought before.
