  • Idea is to have a holding slide with a tag cloud looking collection of statements that slowly appear and disappear. It would be possible to ask a group which of the SILK tag lines are most relevant to their interest. This will hep to focus the presentation to their interests or for them to see that different people in the room have different interests.

    17. 17. The Social Innovation Lab for Kent “ I wouldn’t have thought of doing it that way had I not been involved with this work.” Nazeya Hussein invited a local immigrant woman in to discuss her individual story for an immigration project. “ I thought we worked on the ground, but this has shown me that we really don’t … the approach here has challenged our assumptions about what’s needed.” “ I’ve never done anything like this before - and from now on I’ll do things differently.” ” This is more thinking than I've done in the last 6 months.&quot; &quot;Thanks for making us put ourselves in other people's shoes and think.&quot;
