The aim of the research journey was to identify new ways in which the creative and consulting industry can create transformative work that impacts business, politics and society.
The 3 building blocks:
1. EXPLORE CHALLENGES AND NEW OPPORTUNITIES
It was essential to me to understand the global challenges business and society face today. That's why I met and interviewes leading entrepreneurs, economists, social change makers and lateral thinkers; basically everybody who was willing to contribute! The goal was to get as many different perspectives and insights as possible on how creative thinkers across different disciplines can help to create and facilitate change.
2. PAUSE AND REFLECT
I had no idea where this journey will lead me. But I knew that during these 12 months I had to go through some profound transformational experiences myself. A mentor of mine told me it will be as much an 'inner' as an 'outer' journey. That's why I will deliberately took breaks and time off to be able to think and digest. These times of deep reflection and stillness have been proven to be vital to truly create something meaningful.
3. SHARE AND CONNECT
I was very fortunate to have met some really amazing people over the last few years. They shared their ideas, insights and advice with me, and this is a way to give back and maybe inspire others to do so too. There is nothing more powerful than like-minded people that connect and come together to work on something they really believe in.
If you know somebody who might be interested in participating in an event, such as a lunch talk or a lecture, or who might like to be interviewed for the blog, please spread the word or connect us. I am more than happy to share my findings in a presentation or exchange ideas over a drink.
