What sort of change would you like to see in the world?

Connected communities especially in the professional world, and particularly in/across the public sector, that enable people to work with others to drive positive change in line with their own visions and passions. How else can we transform the public sector (or any other sector!) so it can deal with the future's complex challenges? You think we have wicked problems now? You ain't seen nothing yet!

What are you doing to achieve it? Are you working with a particular organisation or group? Are there any projects you're working on that you'd like to share?

Initiating local projects to seed collaborative communities (as a concept/paradigm, as well as practice), and further my own ability to help catalyse these networks.

What are your favourite organisations, projects or campaigns that are making a positive impact in the world?

Well, the ones that I am... or at least will be : ) David Hood, Matt Cooperrider + Mark Elliot, Ianto Ware, Tim Horton, Angelique Edmonds, Will Donovan, Brenton Caffin, Sarah Schulman + Chris Vanstone, Ella 'design person'... (I wish I knew why there is such a gender imbalance on that list.) Because these are the people I need to work with and learn from to work towards my visions.


Helping build contemporary, connected, collaborative communities. Trying to make the world and the ways we come together in it more 'human'. Fostering ecosystems that enable us to build our dreams, together.
