Millennials need Meaning

Drag Yourself Away from Binge Watching Bodyguard

Richard Madden

If you can drag yourself away from binge watching delicious Richard Madden in Bodyguard,  try listening to the  gorgeous and inspiring Mariana Mazzucato as she outlines her framework for reinventing “value”. Mariana Mazzucato

Millennials need Meaning

Millennials are passionate about finding “value” in their lives and work.

Baby boomers not living in Bhutan high jacked “value” and started to measure it in terms of money. Mariana Mazzucato argues from a similar view to Marilyn Waring who in the 80s was asking us to consider the value of a tree. She really gets you thinking about this crazy neo liberalism which is directing our futures.

You can hear Mariana Mazzucatos ideas on reframing value on Saturday Extra here.

She has a new book out called  The Value of Everything: making and taking in the global economy (2018)

I am unearthing new strategies to the future of work every day. If you would like me to apply my knowledge to your abilities contact me: Bev.J@infocus-careers.com.au

WA has more Dojos than any other city in the world with 48 in Perth and two more in regional centres.

If you want to start helping kids to create technology by creating your own dojo, or getting involved with a group that has already started, they are looking for mentors including digital creatives, game developers, storytellers, students, coders, IT professionals of all kinds as well as people who are generally great at supporting young people. You don’t need to know how to code to be a great mentor.

You can volunteer on the Coderdojo WA site.

The Future of Work – Collaboratorie

enkel OSCE group

Last night I heard the word “collaboratorie” for the first time. A collaboratorie is where people come together to create things just for fun.

Anyone can join in.

There is no plan although there is some initial leadership before everyone starts debating or showing how things should work. Out of this chaos came some pretty amazing ideas.

People work organically to create and build on open source ideas. It could be a model for future success.

Find out when the next collaboratorie is running at enkel.
