Event Details

OccupyLSX, October 2011Over the past two or so years, I've been working out what it means for an organisation to be 'more like people'.

(I've blogged about this fairly regularly, in case you want more information).

Several of you have been a part of this process, some of you I may only have read stuff by, and not yet have had the opportunity to connect with, but now is the time where I'm hoping several of us can come together and expand a little on our shared interests!

Why now?

I'm moving to Oaxaca, Mexico, with my wife in early May, and am planning to write a book on some of these themes while I'm there.

The book is tentatively called: 'Anarchists in the Boardroom: How social movements and social media can help your organisation to be more like people'.

Before I leave London, I want to spend a bit of time exploring with some of you who may have been walking similar paths in recent times. Thus, I am offering to curate a space at the Centre for Creative Collaboration for a couple of hours on the afternoon of Friday, April 27th, to get some of us talking about some of the concepts at the core of the book I'll be writing. Your input would be greatly appreciated.

Can you spare the time to have this conversation?

I hope so.

All I can promise you is a room of some fascinating people, who are keen to see beyond the structures most of our organisations have been organising around for centuries.

I really hope you'll be able to be involved! And do let me know if you can think of others who should be there, but I have not yet invited - particularly women, as the invite list has been a reminder of the male-dominance of the organisational change field!

Drop me a line on liam [at] concretesolutions.org.uk if you'd like to chat in advance, or have others in mind to be involved.

Thanks!

Liam

more like people

We help organisations to be more like people.

We are a small group of freelancers working with non-profit, voluntary,  community, social change, educational, environmental justice and non-governmental organisations and trade unions, to help reinstil a sense of humanity in the ways we organise ourselves for a better world.

We believe passionately in human potential, and want to foster systems and structures that encourage, rather than restrict it.

We offer learning from places our organisations have for too long ignored, bringing unique insights to complex and challenging organisational questions.

We thrive at the junctures between personal and organisational change; institutions and movements; social technology and face-to-face relationships.

‘more like people’ is about a unique approach to social and organisational change, and we’d like to help your organisation to be more like people!

We are on the internet at: http://www.morelikepeople.org
