Now part of a global community of creative thinkers for social good...

After hearing from its founders from international design firm IDEO at the recent ideas festival in Brisbane, I was inspired to join the community of change makers at openIDEO. 

openIDEO is a a place where thinkers from all walks of life can contribute ideas and solutions, thoughts and reflections on a range of issues or challenges.  I'm looking forward to being a part of this great community and learning from thinkers from all over the world.
Do you see yourself as a creative thinker? Whether you're from a design or business background, or something else altogether and simply want to check out what's happening out there, you can read more about openIDEO at the website:

A worldwide community with a common goal - to contribute ideas and create solutions for a range of global issues.

An incredibly awe-inspiring human being with a sense of humour!

Can you imagine what life would be like if you could no longer speak? I simply cannot comprehend it and yet film critic Roger Ebert handles his disability with grace and humour. Watching this really made me reflect on how fortunate I am to have the use of all of my senses.

Enabling employee excellence and inspiring innovation

Research shows that rewarding employees for tasks won't ensure great results... This interesting presentation challenges old thinking and shows how companies need to design new ways for their employees to excel. Can you see this way of thinking benefiting your business or venture?

It's never too early to make a statement...

This little girl isn't afraid to think differently and to get her message out to as many people as possible. Imagine what she'll be doing as an adult if she has the tenacity and courage to do this at the age of seven!
