Start Up Ecosystems
Marija Dimovska is a project management professional with 10+ years experience in NGO and business sectors. She has coordinated projects across cultures, implemented projects in innovation ecosystems working with a focus on technology and youth capacity building.
When she was 14, Marija wanted to know what happened behind the scenes of a Disney theme park, that led to thousands of customers turning up every year to have a good time. She’s always been interested in the behind-the-curtain process and how to streamline operations creatively. She worked in organisations such as the U.S. Peace Corps and has built managerial expertise, while experiencing the power of a diverse team building an intradisciplinary know-how.
“When we bring together the human factor with the with digital tools/ technology we are creating and introducing a formidable instrument in the creative process of driving solutions to local and present-day global challenges!”
Mental Health and Substance Abuse
We know it, but sometimes it's hard for us to take action behind supporting appropriate selfcare.
Today we’ll be talking to Charlotte Hopkins, who has dedicated two decades of her career to helping provide the right support to people experiencing addiction. Charlotte works in the private sector, and has unique insight on how prevalent these issues are even amongst professionals who do not typically seek public support for their struggles.
When Labour No Longer Matters
10 years ago, I realised that something was broken with the way I understood the economy. It wasn’t because I didn’t know the theory. It was that the theory stopped making sense to me.
The 17 Sustainable Development Goals came into being in January 2016, and act as the foundational lens under which to review the sustainability of our businesses, countries and entire planet.
The goal that threads my business together is 8 - Decent work and Economic growth.
The Knowledge Delusion
David Gurteen is a writer, speaker, and conversational facilitator.
We spoke in this session about what we understand of knowledge, and what’s flawed with it.
The focus of his work is Conversational Leadership – a style of working where we appreciate the power of conversation and take a conversational approach to how we connect, relate, learn, and work with each other.
This was certainly one of my best conversations.
Customer ReviewsSee All
I love this podcast and the overall premise. I love intellectual thought processes and conversations. It opens the door to a growth and abundant mindset. In her podcast, Exploring the Question, Katherine talked about something near and dear to my heart and something I think about a lot! This was the idea of transcending the notion of work and transforming our decisions from linear to circular. We habitually accept things for what they are, based on what society tells us, and even though the world is continuously evolving we get stuck in our ways and don’t open our minds to new, innovative ways of thinking. This podcast is exactly what we need to inspire creativity and change!!
