@kylie I’ve been really missing the network that we were a part of for a small time this summer and for a while now I’ve been wondering if you and others may be also missing that sense of networking space, and, if so, how we might instigate a new one? Which leads me to this idea… a Praxorium online innovation lab, that may evolve into in-person events (the name is more just the idea of what it would be, we can work on finding the best descriptive term if this moves further).
It could give us (and others!) a well-organised space to come together and feel that sense of connection and communing from having a more ‘live’ space to hold conversations, share, laugh, undertake collaborative problem exploration and journeying, learn, ask for help and offer it, joyfully bring forth ideas and see where they might go with the benefit of group intelligence.
Group Zoom call every 2 weeks, alternating between an open or subject-led space, and then a guest speaker.
Keeping it a fairly tight group to start with.
Reaching out to some of the key innovators for our guest speakers.
If we get a LinkedIn page up and running, where we’re sharing the discussions happening here (we’d need agreement, so we’d need to think through this carefully), we could also link that into this group.
It would also have the potential to bring more people to this space, which could then be used to support the lab (messaging space, perhaps a private topic space, like with the consultancy).
Love to hear your reflections when appropriate for you
