Eidos Institute function this Thursday with Adam Kahane

I’m speaking at an interesting lunchtime seminar being held in Brisbane city this coming Thursday.  It’s organized by http://www.eidos.org.au the Eidos Institute, and it’s aimed at exploring questions such as how the private sector work towards social change, and what new ideas and processes can help us respond more effectively to complex social problems such as homelessness, climate change and institutionalised inequality.
The event will be facilitated by Dennis Atkins from The Courier-Mail.  The main speaker is Adam Kahane, an interesting and experienced person who looks for ways that business, government and civil society can work together to bring about positive change.
I’ve long felt that there are many untapped opportunities for better collaboration between private enterprise and not-for-profit and other parts of civil society. I’ll be interested to hear what Adam Kahane and others present have to say about it.
It starts at noon with a half an hour of music from grassroot blues musicians The Wild Turkey Trio, with discussion segment going for an hour from around 12.30.  All for just $15 – http://www.eidos.org.au/v2/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=220&Itemid=110 more details through this link.

  1. Hi Andrew
    I am so disappointed that I only found out about this seminar today. Seems like it would have been very interesting. Was it?

  2. Seems a good place to start, an underlying cultural change towardmentality that thinks laterally to the usual market theology.
    If you finally allow yourself to see thing differently, ie challenge your own outlook, and grasp reality,aspiration and potential from a different perspective to the habituated one, it may come to pass that one eventually gains satisfaction in creating instead of destroying.

  3. It was quite an interesting event Dianna. A diverse range of people there and a lot of points raised in a fairly short time. I got a copy of “Power and Love” – Adam Kahane’s book. Its an interesting read – although it also reinforces for me that the way we do politics/government in this country (and many others no doubt) is terribly limiting.
