"OpenIDEO Meetup Facilitator"
I am passionate about enabling individuals and businesses to unlock their potential and be extraordinary. I enjoy business model (re)design; hosting + facilitation; design thinking and enabling meaningful ideas to spread!
I have lived and worked across 3 continents and traveled to more than 40 countries. I've worked at AIESEC (www.aiesec.org) for more than five years with the intention of creating a future generation of global leaders.
When I'm not catalysing, I can be found cruising on my motorcycle, enjoying an early morning run, reading at a nearby café, or planning my next big adventure. I am a terrible singer and an amateur cook.

Fantastic contribution Alper. I am currently in Berlin, sitting with Mak, and he is excited to have this event highlighted. We've spread the word to different local networks and communities and are looking forward to what emerges from/ at this event. In fact, we're now also preparing an OpenIDEO Meetup in Berlin around this challenge and will be posting details soon!
Amy, thanks for the kind words and all the encouragement! I absolutely believe in the power of storytelling and would love to see how this simple yet effective tool can help address the issue and shape the right behaviours. And yes, we'll have to find ways of customising the stories to the local context. Glad you like the "edutainment" aspect of the idea too :)
