Increasingly, our industries are expected to transform, adapt and change. Buzzwords like
‘innovation’ lack detailed discussion about the process involved.
Humans have a tendency to seek out and surround themselves with information that confirms
their ways of viewing the world. Social media has amplified this.
Creativity is the pre-condition of innovation. Creativity occurs when we make connections
between disparate concepts, ideas or principles and apply them in a new, valuable way.
Creativity comes in many forms and is not solely artistic in nature.
We need to transform and adapt but the very nature of our siloed work practices and social
networks means that we are limiting our ability to make connections.
I am launching The Curious Connector so that we can connect to create. I’m aiming to break
down silos between industries and ways of problem-solving. Listening with no assumptions
and being open to making connections and having conversations. It is through leveraging our
collective ways of doing that we can make meaningful changes.
The Curious Connector is a a project to shake up our
silos so that we can solve problems better.
