Networks for Social Change

Simon Penny, from The iLab, wrote a blog, called Networks for Social Change, about the last GFN Social (and a wee talk Alice did at University Centre Shrewsbury), which he attended. 

Simon is busy building connectivity in Shrewsbury through Global Service Jam events and Social Design Drinks

SOCIAL : Free-range Connectivity :
Thursday 26 May 2016, Common Hall Social

Our next social starts in the manner we have become accustomed to; 6pm, a beer or two from the bar (10% discount, natch), some polite conversation (dancing on tables comes after the talks).

Then, at 6:30pm David and Ken are our Thinking Aloud guests, followed by Sylvie and Nicola talking about a potential Storyhouse hack. Warning put you inspiration glands in training; we cannot be responsible for side-effects.

DON'T CROSS HOLLY - CLICK HERE TO ATTEND - SHE IS DANGEROUS, REPEAT DANGEROUS.
David George : Founder and CEO, Bikmo

Technology and connectivity allow us to live almost anywhere, and work as efficiently as if we're in the same office as our teams; arguably more efficiently. And, with a whole host of additional benefits, why don't more companies go free-range?
 
Ken Clemens : CEO of the suprising Age UK Cheshire

Attempting to disrupt public services agenda through innovative work around accessing & blending different types of data, and collaborations. The latest buzz is wondering if Blockchain technologies can be applied to health & care. 
Age UK Cheshire has just been selected to be included on the UKs Digital Leaders 100 List 2016
Nicola Haigh, Community Engagement Manager and Sylvie More, Operations Manager, at Storyhouse, talk about a Community Programme in the making that will animate the daily life of the building and keep inclusion at the heart of the Storyhouse agenda. But, how best to engage with a broad range of people? Is this a GFN hack in the making?
How can you just leave me standing?
Alone in a world that's so cold.
Peace.

Alice

P.s. This will be my last social as GFN Lead. If you've got this far down the email then you're probably GFN Crew in the making and perfect to team up with Holly to power GFN from June >> more here.
