As you’ll watch, the subject was nothing to do with social media, instead, my long overdue and yet-to-be-launched moonshot project exploring can wisdom be designed, wysdem.com.
The official line (although please judge for yourself above and leave any thoughts / guidance / ideas you have in the comments):
“DK was an engaging speaker at CatalystCreativ’s March Catalyst Week Showcase. He drew the audience into his talk with his research on how wisdom plays into systems and held their attention by posing important and thoughtful questions on this discussion. In his talk, he explored how wisdom plays into individual responsibility so that we can better understand how it plays into the systems around us.” Evelyn Sabino, Communications & Events Manager at CatalystCreativ
Check out the other magnificent talks from the event as well, some gems in here:
My long-overdue moonshot project which has been brewing for the past 2/3 years is set for launch early 2015.
Still crafting the copy although here’s the current draft:
WYSDEM—big wisdom thinking for businesses, organisations & other systems.
Whether it be education, business, startups, governments, food production, economics, organisations, cities, online etc the delicious and driving question is, can wisdom be designed in?*
This project will explore and research the subject of humanising wisdom into our lives, our work, our designs, our businesses, our organisations, our leadership, our world. Featuring curated content, insightful provocations and crafted audio narratives, it will be a conversation. An approach of learning out loud, and being vulnerable.
An idea, manifesting in a voice, hopeful for an horizon to become clear.
I mentor / coach one-to-one clients and throw together longer consulting services, for example, guiding a national sport association exploring the world of social, being part of a larger mentoring team for the UK arts and cultural sector, plus individually tutoring a social media manager for a major university explore sustainable strategies / practices.
As the license holder / curator for NZ’s capital TEDx event, discussions have already started for next years offering. The highlights from this years review is that we sold out in under three hours, had 12 amazing talks / performances and entertained 400 curious souls in person (and 1,500 online during the stream).
A side project which crowdsources stuff you could never get online. Like hugs (and don’t send me this—close, but still not a hug, although what a lovely project).
Sci-fi Trilogy Novel / Graphic Novel
For the past few years I’ve been sharing with a few folks the plot to a sci-fi trilogy I once dreamed. Have never written any long-form fiction before although feeling buoyed by the initial responses with those I’ve shared it with.
If anyone has any thoughts or guidance on the above let us know. Let me know what you’re working on as well?
