THE 'BIG IDEA CROWD" IN JAPAN CONGREGATES ROUND THE SHIFT
The huge success of the social (online) book reading event in Japan recently, where the blogger Chikirin organised a discussion of The Shift, really captured our attention in London - and we hope it will lead to many more sessions around the world. While the tweets are in Japanese, you can get a feel for how responsive people were to the topics - 3,000 tweets in two hours! - and there were such interesting questions raised. Some examples include: will the third shift occur in developed countries only; and have high energy costs slowed down the movement of human capital. Lynda recorded a special message to the readers - click the image to view.
LYNDA JOINS PORTER AND WELCH IN NEW YORK
TO DISCUSS LEADERSHIP IN ACTION
Lynda spoke recently at the World Business Forum at Radio City Music Hall in New York. It was a veritable who's-who of speakers, with Michael Porter, Jack Welch, Richard Branson, Jim Collins, Don Tapscott and Ursula Burns among others. You can see a video of Lynda's speech here, as well as Michael Porter's here.
In fact, the World of Business Ideas (WOBI) site is full of great content, streamed videos, information and a magazine and is well worth a look.
