Video Text “Hello everyone and welcome! My name is Oliver Schwabe and I would like to invite you to join us in co-creating the true story of how wonderful innovations travel from that Eureka moment „I have an idea“ to that moment where it becomes a household word… Welcome to a unique opportunity to experience the journey with all your senses from the morning when you will join the creation of a tribe of other novice actors passionate about diffusing innovation in a heart-beat, through creating that story together during the day with expert facilitator help, and then actually presenting the story as a Shakespearean play in the evening before a live audience. Not only will you experience a roller-coaster ride of emotions on the way to that performance, you will also experience the thrills of emergent collaboration and co-creation that are the magic recipe of making innovations a success. This workshop is based on the thinking of a wonderful thought leader called Debra Mae Amidon who unfortunately left us much too early, the story of the mouse „Wow“ who had a “really really” good idea and finally the research based script and choreography of that idea as it diffused through a series of interdependent innovation ecosystem archetypes.  If you love theatre (and honestly, who doesn´t?) and if you love innovation then join us at our event as an actor, a member of the audience at the performance, or as an interested observer… There is room for everyone from age 18 and older, from any background, whether you have acting skills or not – we will all work together to have a magical day, a wonderful performance and of course a fantastic on-stage party after the event  In association with our network members this event is on a global roadshow and may soon be coming to your part of the world – if not, why not contact us and help fill the gap? We are always looking for partners to co-host the event, maybe as part of a larger conference or festival, or maybe in a more private organizational setting as an away day or leadership training. Whatever the context, whatever your role, you will find yourself enthused, energized and enabled to drive innovations forward faster and implement these more sustainably. We look forward to meeting you – “playing” is when we are most human, and the more human we are, the more able we are able to innovate the world together! Take care and hope to see you soon!”
