  • Shortly before 3pm on March 11th, 2011 a massive tsunami came ashore. Thirty-foot high waves of water traveled almost three miles inland. Boats were perched on tops of houses. Cars looked like toys discarded carelessly on the floor of a boy’s bedroom floor. And the cannery known as The Kinoya Seafood Company was completely destroyed. As rescue workers searched for survivors, they began to notice little tins caked in mud and debris that dotted the coastline. Though the labels were washed away, the cans were intact, so they made for a quick meal – although you weren’t sure you were getting tuna, flounder or mackerel. While others protested the government’s handling of level 7 meltdowns of three reactors at Fukushima, a large group of concerned citizens traveled to Ishinomaki, where they gathered, washed and transported the cans back to Tokyo. But how do you sell something with no label? The cans were left on the store shelves bare, but then people began decorating them with messages of support and unity. As I ate canned mackerel with Kimura-san, the company’s President – he explained how citizens helped recover and sell 800,000 of the one millions cans of fish that went missing. Across the nation they became known as Japan’s ‘cans of hope’. NAGATO KIMURA KINOYA SEAFOOD CO. ISHINOMAKI, JAPAN4 Copyright 2012, John Gerzema | BAV Consulting |WPP PLC | @Johngerzema

  • LEO RISKI CULTURAL ATTACHÉ, FELLESHUS BERLINWe met Leo Riski cultural attaché of The Felleshus in Berlin is the firstshared embassy in the world which houses all five Nordic countries.Felleshus is Danish for ‘House for everyone’. The Nordic model is verymatriarchal, and based on ALIGNING GOALS and SELF-INTERESTS toTHE BETTERMENT OF ALL and a model of 21st century diplomacy. Theirony was not lost on us that directly across the street isThe Syrianembassy, which was protected from graffiti attacks and constantprotest, a stark contrast indeed. 9 Copyright 2012, John Gerzema | BAV Consulting |WPP PLC | @Johngerzema
  • ORNA BARBIVAI GENERAL: ISRAEL DEFENSE FORCES TEL AVIV, ISRAELIn Tel-Aviv we met General Orna Barbivai, the highest-rankingwoman in the Israeli Defense Force. The IDF is the first, and onlymilitary to put women into combat roles. General Barbivai told usshe approaches military strategy from the perspective of a ‘mother’.More than capable of using FORCE when confronted, the generalfeels women can also READ SITUATIONS FROM MANY ANGLES andassess OUTCOMES of actions before taking them. General Barvivaibelieves in engaging to de-escalate conflict. And she should know:Her two daughters guard checkpoints at Syria and The Gaza Strip. 10 Copyright 2012, John Gerzema | BAV Consulting |WPP PLC | @Johngerzema
  • IJAD MADISCH CEO/CO-FOUNDER RESEARCHGATE BERLIN In Berlin we met Ijad Madisch, a medical researcher who kept ‘getting stuck’ on his experiments. When he asked peers for help he learned it is taboo to show VULNERABILITY in the ‘ego-driven world of scientific research. He moved to Berlin and created a ‘Facebook for scientists’. His goal is to get scientists out of their cubicles and to work together. Ijad’s HUMILITY is paying off: several collaborative advancements are already being published.11 Copyright 2012, John Gerzema | BAV Consulting |WPP PLC | @Johngerzema

  • JONAS VIG & MÅNS ADLER FOUNDERS: BAMBUSER STOCKHOLM In Stockholm we visited Bambuser, which created the first live streaming video from a mobile phone. Jonas and Mans thought they were creating a social entertainment platform only to become the people’s voice of the Arab spring live from Tahir square and become the first website that the Egyptian government shut down. Bambuser upended dictatorial government control to become the first true neutral media in the Middle East. Bambsuser is now the live real time network from the street detailing the Syrian attack on Homs.15 Copyright 2012, John Gerzema | BAV Consulting |WPP PLC | @Johngerzema
  • MIT AgeLab CAMBRIDGE, MA College students at MIT, at the peak of their energy and health, were tasked with wearing the AGNES (Age Gain Now Empathy System) suit, to try and understand what it feels like to be in your mid-70’s. The suit restricts joint, neck and leg movement, has shoes that reduce your sense of balance and as expected, they’re unable to turn their blinker off. This is a story about innovation catalyzed by empathy. The generational divide that has become such a prevalent story is disappearing as 20 year olds are beginning to think like 75 year olds. Started in 1999 at MIT, the AgeLab has been working to find solutions to make life more livable the ageing post-industrial civilizations. We met with Dr. Joseph Coughlin, Director of the MIT AgeLab, to try and learn why empathy has become so important for innovation16 Copyright 2012, John Gerzema | BAV Consulting |WPP PLC | @Johngerzema
