Asking students to reinvent their business school #DreamingAudencia

Audencia School of Management, located in Nantes, in Brittany, is one of France’s leading business schools. Today, the school is launching a very original event, inviting its students to co-create the business school of tomorrow. Called Dreaming Audencia (“Design Thinking and Collective Intelligence” it says on the facebook page), the 2-day event is meant to put the school’s students at the driving seat to reinvent their business school. I thought it was an interesting initiative, that’s why I share it in this blog post (I’ll also try to write a follow-up post once it will be over). Continue reading →

Impressions of the Co-Creation Awards event ceremony in Utrecht, Netherlands

Last Thursday I was at the CapGemini Campus in Utrecht (The Netherlands) for the 2012 Co-Creation Awards ceremony. Beside announcing the winners of the Awards in each of the four categories, it was also a great place to hold workshops and attend presentations. For example, co-creation expert Gaurav Bhalla presented (via Skype) how co-creation and collaboration go together, then we held a series of workshops around co-creation as well as a panel discussion. And then, of course, the winners were announced.

It was a great event set up by the PDMA, the Co-Creation Association, the Co-Creation Forum, CapGemini and eYeka (for whom I work as a Research Fellow,, just to mention it as a disclaimer). It was also an opportunity to catch up with co-creation-twitter-and-blogging-friend Joyce Van Dijk, who now works at MWM2 as Dialogue Manager. Maybe next year I’ll meet some more people there? Don’t hesitate to follow the event’s twitter account to stay tuned.
