This month we asked Vicky Green our Head of Locality for the Black Country to guest host a discussion around the theme of ‘Social Prescribing & Asset Based Coaching’. There’s lots of talk in the press at the moment about Social Prescribing so this is shaping up to be a popular one. Join us on Thursday 1st at 8pm. It’s #BlabChat time!
October #blabchat : Man vs. Machine - How Can You Sustain A 'Human-Centred' Approach In A System Driven World?
Last week, Michelle visited Oliver Moffat & Kate Ainscough, two of the key players in setting out the approach to innovation at Baxi and look at opportunities to work together in the future.
On Monday, Nesta launched the Centre for Collective Intelligence Design. Simon shares his reflections on the day and starts to explore what collective intelligence could mean for Bromford.
What part does gut feeling and evidence play in the design process? Are there tensions between the two and if so can they be overcome? Join us for conversation on the topic of ‘gut feeling vs. evidence’ in this month’s twitter chat - it’s #BlabChat time!
Is there any such thing as a new idea? Do organisations put their staff under too much pressure to come up with ideas, but then fail them when it comes to supporting those ideas to be realised? Join us for conversation on the topic of ‘ideas’ in this month’s twitter chat - it’s #BlabChat time!
Simon worked from the Tech Severn Conference & Exhibition in Shrewsbury yesterday. Here’s a short post about his day.
On Tuesday we were pleased to welcome back Denise and Clare from Elemental to make the final preparations for our 12-week social prescribing test in the Black Country, which is set to start next week.
July #BlabChat : Disrupt or be disrupted - Can traditional organisations adapt to serve a more connected customer?
We talk about being disruptive, but we can often forget how hard that can be for both the disruptive and the disrupted parties. This week Uber got it’s licence to operate in London back, so we thought that it would be fun to discuss disruption in a little more depth during July’s twitter chat. So buckle up, it’s going to be a good one, it’s #BlabChat time!
