When you’re downloading a whole heap of new and valuable information, space is imperative. Every time we run an event like our recent study trip to Berlin a key piece of feedback is that there always needs to be time to distil and process the insights.
You see, the real value is not in the studio’s visited, the information heard, or the exercises done. It is in the application of these things once back at home.
Everyone is heading back to a busy office, a mountain of emails and a bunch of tasks to be completed. People are busy.
So to have a space in the moment, to synthesise everything and work out what the important actions are back at base BEFORE you get home… well that is absolutely crucial to affecting real change.
So on Day three of our visit to Berlin, participants get a good chunk of time on the final day to reflect, digest and plan their response to all they have seen, heard and experienced.
