  3. COVID-19 has created a focus on spaces like Workspaces & Thinking Spaces, but what about Learning Spaces?

    COVID-19 has created a focus on spaces like Workspaces & Thinking Spaces, but what about Learning Spaces? For those of us in parts of the world who have been locked down during the Covid 19 pandemic, the concept of ‘space’ has come into sharper focus.

  7. Looking forward to the next new normal

    Looking forward to the next new normal It’s hard to believe we wrote our last blog entry only four weeks ago and talked about face to face Workshops as if they were a normal everyday occurrence… Fast forward to the current situation and we all now have a shared experience of the VUCA world - Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous.

  8. What is a workshop?

    Does The Amount Of Experiential Content Make It A Workshop? I once heard an old-school manager railing against being invited to attend a workshop I was delivering.
