Service Design Days 2018, Barcelona
The world is not short of ideas – so why invite me to talk, or spend half an hour on Skype? The short answer: 75% of my clients say our session was “inspiring”. By casting fresh eyes on your situation, I suggest new opportunities for change. I leave you determined to make something happen and with a clear understanding of what that next step needs to be.
PATHWAYS TO SUSTAINABILITY:
FINDING YOUR PLACE IN THE NEXT ECONOMY
Relational Design. Peer-to-Peer. Mobility as a Service. Platform Co-ops. The Maker Movement. Civic Ecology. Earth Repair. Social Food. Transition Towns. The New Hospitality. Care Collaboratives.
New economic and social models are emerging everywhere among edge projects and networks. You you need to know about them – and, ideally, connect. But how?
As the best-selling author of How To Thrive In The Next Economy, I have discovered numerous practical ways in which Big can connect meaningfully with Small. I cite compelling real-world stories to inspire the practical first steps on your pathway to sustainability.

Why a philosopher?
I come to our encounter wearing three hats: a philosophy hat, a storytelling one, and a design hat.The philosopher in me asks: “what’s the most important question here?” As a storyteller, I introduce you to real people doing inspiring projects around the world. Finally, with my design hat on, I ask what these innovations mean for your place in the regenerative economy that’s now emerging.
I do big-picture keynote talks for cities, companies, universities, and institutions. A combination talk + xskool workshop gives us more quality time together.
