"Change Consultant, Producer and Network Builder extraordinaire"
I’m obsessed with people and patterns.
I’m really interested in a human-centred design and storytelling as an approach to problem solving.
Human-centered design allows me to take a problem through three phases to find a solution:
HEAR - examine the problem from the users perceived (and sometimes unrealised) needs.
CREATE - translate what has been learnt into a brief, recognise patterns and brainstorm solutions.
DELIVER - identify the tools and resources needed to deliver the agreed solution.
I believe that all of this combined creates the story of a business’ products, services, brand, people and its culture.
Companies seldom realise the business opportunity that their intangible human assets represent; particularly service companies whose only real asset is often the people they employ.
Business change is actually people change.
I love this idea and it reminded me of the Casserole Club (https://www.casseroleclub.com). Maybe you can expand on their original concept or consider partnering up to use it as a resource for finding potential cooks already willing to do something for someone else.
