Last Thursday, on a lovely sunny day, Phil Willcox and I met up with an eager group of Street Wisdom’ers in Leicester for Learn > Connect > Do. Some had experience of Street Wisdom before, while for most it was their first time. I’m not going to write about the way these awesome sessions run, you can read more about that here, but I wanted to share some photos of a great afternoon, including the post-event debrief which was at Dolce & Verde – great coffee if you’re ever in Leicester or Rothley. After drinks and cakes, the Wisdomer’s went on their ways with thoughts and plans in their heads about how to keep a hold of their learning and put different actions in place for the questions they were asking.
And if you’re interested in future Learn > Connect > Do events, send your email address to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll get you on the mailing list. We’re a group of people professionals who care about work being better and we meet quarterly at Meridian, Leicester. The point of the events is to: LEARN > leave with something you didn’t have when you came in; new insights or knowledge on the topic, and a new facilitation tool or approach. CONNECT > meet others who also care about making work better and who bring a different perspective or experience to you, broadening your possibilities. DO > make a commitment to do something tangible in your work – things will only be different if we take different action.
The next event is 3-6pm on 1st December with Dan Pilling who’ll be using Pecha Kucha to get us all talking about our workplaces and whether we still even need offices. You can book here. (Jo Stephenson’s session using Thinking Environment (a la Nancy Kline) will now be on 9th March 2017) We’d love to see you at both of these! #LearnConnectDo
