Paul Levy: Staying Awake and Free in the Digital World, April 2018 (runtime 15:57—every second is riveting)Paul is a senior researcher at The Centre for Research in Innovation Management, University of Brighton, UK. He also runs a consulting practice called CATS3000, and wrote the profile appearing below for the Cool Cats part of his website.
“Jack is an innovation consultant who walks the talk. He is constantly innovating his own business activity, its design and aims.
He is ‘the person’ to talk to for large group interventions, for whole system change and innovation. I have attended a four-day Open Space conference that Jack facilitated. It set me on a new path in life.
Jack is highly committed and skilled, challenging and truly creative. Jack thinks deeply about innovation and transformation. He has developed a range of propositions about innovation that can lead to new insights on the topic. He understands creativity and innovation and has developed practical ways to develop innovativeness in organisations.
Jack’s views tap into the wild and the wonderful as well as the rational. He likes to shake things up, and to help that shaking to happen quickly. He doesn’t mess about!
You won’t always find it easy working with Jack because he is one of that rare breed — an authentic agent of change and innovation who is prepared for things to get harder before they get easier.”
