What are the FUNKQUEST rules?
Funkquest is a fun interactive online game that features five rounds. Each round consists of ONE FUNKY question.The player selects the icon which most tweaks their interest. Each Funky visual has a Funky question.
The Funky insight is that the question may or may not be related to the icon.
SO potential Funksters have to think on their feet to score points. Points are awarded by me for FUNKY answers...
What's so good about FUNKQUEST ?
Funky Thinkers know that IDEAS only come from free-flowing CONVERSATION.
Listening (without prejudice) to new ideas and speakers from outside your usual network truly qualifies as FUNKY.
Each question has a strict time limit. So no multi-headed long and complicated self indulgent stories to endure. Just short punchy bite-sized truly Funky ideas, as we GET THE FUNK OUT!
A brief chat about speaking French with the first (I think) French-speaking guest we have had on the show.
Conversational French lessons are available with Chantal.
Q1. Chantal picked the astronaut and the question is "What problem are you currently grappling with?"
Chantal called it a mind twist and referred to them as challenges.
We talked about finding clients who have a different way they want to work. Chantal prefers people to work how she works.
If they don't like it, maybe they aren't a good match.
Chantal wants 50 new clients by this time next year — so that's 50 points.
Q2. Chantal chose the space hopper. The question is "What is your secret talent?"
Chantal has a knack of grasping what is going on and dig for the message that is needed.
You could call this a sixth sense. "Don't ask me why...?" or "My witch nose is telling me..."
6 points scored
Q3. Chantal chose the London bus and the question is "How ambitious are you really?"
If you decide to do something — you might as well go all in. You might fail — but the quicker you are to pick yourself up.
People we need on the show. Someone who knows about the psychology of having your photograph taken. Please get in touch.
Chantal scored 93 points.
Q4. Chantal chose the lady hanging out of the launderette. The question is "How do you judge a person?"
Maybe it is because Chantal is getting older, that she prefers not to judge, but to understand. Maybe, if we have our own challenges in life, we are more understanding.
One type of people that Chantal does judge is salepeople. A typical low cost mobile monthly rental is about £15 so Chantal scored 15 points.
Q5. Chantal didn't know George Harrison. Chantal chose roller skates and the The question is "What got ruined because it became popular?"
The answer is general tourist sites and those places you have to queue up for to have those "iconic" photos taken.
Chantal scored 20 points.
Total 184 FUNKPOINTS scored.
