Apparently, innovation can only happen within the four physical walls of an office. Who knew, right? Or, at least, that’s what we have been told by certain people, once more, as another false narrative that demands we all get back to work, i.e. back to the office, if we would want to continue pushing for innovation to … Continue reading Myth Busting – Innovation Can Only Happen at the Office
Over the course of the last six years, since I went independent, I have had the opportunity (and still do!) of unlearning a few things in the space of knowledge sharing and collaboration tools. One of the most significant and impactful ones has been acknowledging the fact what once used to be the main good old … Continue reading Hybrid Worlds
On January 20th, it will mark the 20th year anniversary since I started working in the IT industry. A lot has happened over the course of the last two decades both on a personal and work levels, as you can imagine, and, yet, it feels as if it was just yesterday.

Who would have thought that, after 20 years in the IT industry, I am, essentially, a Luddite. No, not necessarily a technophobe, nor someone who is opposed to industrialisation, automation, computerisation or technology in general. No, not like that! Just what the original Luddites were all about. People who were not opposed to technology itself, but to … Continue reading Resisting Change – Luddites Unite!
Imagine one day you read this quote: ‘The way we teach in our schools isn’t the way I think you create successful (and happy) adults, it’s the way you create the society we’ve had until now.’ Now imagine you swap the wordings ’teaching’ for ‘learning’ and ‘our schools’ for ‘our workplaces’. Read it out loud … Continue reading How Social Networking Tools Enable Heutagogy in Learning Organisations
