Keith Ng (@keizng) co-founded Gametize, a digital gamification platform to motivate behaviors through challenges and rewards such as in recruitment, learning & development, and marketing campaigns. Gametize won funding in a reality TV show (Angels' gate), the People's Vote in IBM's Asean Smartcamp 2013, and most recently SBR's 2015 20 hottest startups in Singapore. Today, the platform is powering fun for 200,000 users today with 7 million challenge completions.

Keith was nominated as one of the most influential people in gamification globally by Gamification Summit (2014), as well as the top 100 gamification innovator/consultant by Sparkah. He conceptualized Gametize’s gamification design framework, and speaks on gamification globally, including Gamification Summit, San Francisco, and Loyalty Summit, Mumbai. His interests are in using game thinking and psychology to solve engagement problems, and new OBHR models/frameworks that increases "happiness" for the organizations.

Prior to co-founding Gametize, Keith coded/sold a software at 18, completed his BBM (Finance) and BSc (Information System) on a scholarship by DFS in Singapore Management University, ending his final semester on exchange in Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Belgium. His "Richard Bartle's Player Type" would be Explorer and Achiever; he hates skipping his Sunday futsal games, and plays Counter-Strike occasionally.
