  • You’re here - you know networks are important\nYou’re business women - that means you’ve got great business ideas - I love that\nYou’re here - with a business challenge (we hope!)\n\nAbout me\n- formerly a business school academic\n- spread over a big range of topic areas - careers, networks and creativity\n- discovered creative problem-solving - very practical\n- now looking for practical ways to help others have impact\n
  • What is today about? \n\nWe hope you will leave\n- stimulated\n- feeling zestier, more alive to possibilities\n- having learned to think differently about problem-solving, your network and the conversations that make your network into a problem-solving resource\n\nLeave feeling: er well…zestier! Alive to possibilities. Optimistic about seeing solutions to your challenges Collaborative. Conversational. Curious.\n\n\nThinking differently \n

  • Think back to the conversations at the beginning of the evening. \n\nZest is \n- bringing out the best in others\n- being open and present in conversations\n- offering as well as asking\n- listening as well as telling\n- being an initiator of generosity\n\n\n
  • Inklings - conversations that surprise you or set you thinking\n\nLike when Simon suggested Business Heroes should be about employability \n\nThere are things you can do to increase the chance of this happening\n- where you connect on similarity, try to benefit from difference\n- think which communities of unrelated people you span - what can you bring from one to the others (Inmaps is great for this)\n- have conversations that are free from your agenda\n- also cultivate difference - the 80:20 rule\n
