House Meeting - The Age of Collaboration

This is a House Meeting where we will explore together the value of collaboration in a very practical way.

At this meeting we are going to discuss how collaboration can be a proactive and positive way to create and find work that suits a range of situations. We also recognise that not all collaborations are purely financial transactions. Sometimes, exchanging time or skills is a worthy collaboration in terms of personal and community growth

This meeting will be facilitated by Nikki Fishman, Director and Co-Founder of Collage Network, which is a social enterprise that enables the practical use of collaboration to help people find and create their own work opportunities.

With traditional employment becoming more scarce, and job losses often portrayed in the media in terms of figures, we take a deeper look at the individuals behind the numbers. We see people from all walks of life face the emotional and financial effects of unemployment.

We believe that, rather than being deemed ‘unemployed’ or ‘‘finished at fifty’, people between paid work should be viewed as a valuable local and national resource. One that should be nurtured and supported.

Collage Network is currently working with an emerging online and local face-face community in Croydon and they will share and explore together their experiences and the lessons learned.

Discussion topics at this house meeting will include:

Understanding the hidden values and benefits of collaboration

  • What is collaboration?
  • Why collaborate?
  • Types of collaboration
  • Collaboration: Different from networking?
  • How to be a better collaborator
  • Steps to collaboration and building trust networks
  • Sharing our tips for successful collaboration
  • How to have more effective collaboration conversations
  • We look forward to seeing you there - and to a new age of collaborating together.

Although membership of our site is free we do expect all those who attend our events to pay a subscription of £10 for a whole year that covers attendance not just to one meeting but also to the vast majority of our meetups and webinars for any one year. It also allows you to bring one guest free to every meeting or webinar.
