Turning ideas into action!

Social Synergy creates Social Change – looking after our future

“To create a new currency for a thriving future it will take all of us coming together in different ways”. 

At our event on Oct 7th, 2017 we experience the power of a conversational panel discussion, a participatory workshop, and international guest speaker Dame DC Cordova via video. We also explored the many levels of connectivity between humans and it’s only when there is a collective impulse of true purpose alive in a community that the creative process will activate and start moving forward.

A big THANK YOU to Erma Ranieri, David Pearson, Khadija Gbla, Scott Boocock, Dame DC Cordova and the wonderful participants who shared their ideas and stories.

The valuable takeaways from the event…

DAME DC Cordova – I always go back to the message of the great Buckminster Fuller… “How do we make the world work, for 100% of humanity, in the shortest possible time, through spontaneous cooperation, without ecological offense or disadvantage of anyone?”

ERMA RANIERI – Demonstrate your leadership from behind. When you’re in a role to be able to remove the barriers to innovation, you have a responsibility.
I go back to why I’m here – we all have a purpose. It’s not about my position, it’s about my generosity of spirit.  – “Go for it”

DAVID PEARSON – Trying hard is not good enough, Good intentions are not good enough. Make it personal. Take a systems approach; setting yourself up to do more for others – As a privileged white male, my family taught me a sense of values, to give back and be a joiner of community groups. “Keep calm and carry on”

KHADIJA GBLA – As an African Australian I see myself as a bridge; a bridge between culture, between people. It’s not about choosing a side as both offers so much – “Collaboration is not optional – it’s a must”

SCOTT BOOCOCK – It’s about growing… I use my name, my experience of traveling the world and my privilege of growing up in a lower social economic society where black and white didn’t really exist to me – “it was only Dougie, Ritchie or Brian” they were simply my mates. 
Here’s my ‘WINNING formula for success – Why; Idea; Network; No-mans land; Innovate; Now the How; Go for it

LISA McASKILL – When people are prepared to share stories, their vulnerabilities, their fears, and their strengths – real connection and understanding occur, which leads to collaborations and outcomes.

CHERIE ROWETT – Raising resonance allowed us to experience social synergy in the room – and it struck me how very happy it makes people to experience social synergy. An authentic conversation about social change can then be ignited – as we saw with everyone becoming able to create together not only collaboratively and authentically, but also joyfully!

ELIZABETH ELLAMES – By simply creating the appropriate space physically and energetically for people to be real with each other, gives them the confidence to enter into the realm of the imagination, which literally magnifies possibility and opportunity.
