Since 1996, I've designed and crafted my own line of furniture in Bern, Switzerland. In 2017, I pivoted from home eco-products to guiding HCD workshops and Design Opportunities for the Circular Economy. The latest projects are based in inclusive dialogues to allow teams and diverse stakeholders to imagine and co-create their future businesses, organisations and academic institutions to embrace innovation as open collaborative processes and Circular Design Guide methods. In July'17 , I co-founded an OpenIDEO Tribe at Impact Hub Bern with the help from Impact Hub members and founders.
I really like the way you have pulled it together and show where your offer can expand into helping people to take care of themselves and their loved ones. Even as your offer has shown a strong beginning via your website and Vimeo offer it's clear that it can scale with plenty of options to grow and serve. I look forward to seeing what you do next Anthony with this great offer which is already helping people via your Caregiver Smiles Summits. Thanks for your good work!
I like your integrative approach. Bringing people into positive generating experiences around food is so natural and universal. Great!
I see from the messages below that some graphics and pictures are coming. Can you find some local young filmmakers to help you capture these experiences? It would be great to see the experience and how you will amplify it. Looking forward to seeing more details and how you can spread the good idea across communities.
Hello Margaret, Just one more thought that showed up as I was thinking about how you can get UX data and rich input. As I realised with my note below, even after a time there is an emotional unload which I hope wasn't too present in my testing and feedback. I wonder if tapping into the large number of caregivers who have gone through the process and have had 5 perhaps more years to consider how caregivers reacted and what they would do differently would be helpful in your deep human researcher + machine learning? I am not sure if it is helpful. Are experienced caregivers "loaded" with the experience and give emotionally driven feedback whereas professionals remain dispassionate. I wonder with old people in general if we are often too dispassionate and respectful of how fragile or easily disturbed they are. In any case I think I am not alone in wondering how you and your team will take this great project. Thanks Margaret, from Keith
