On the subject of signs: I can understand how you might feel with an army of
green-eyeshades (American for accountants)but even so, I would just go
ahead and make the signs just like youre used to. I know that folks have
all sorts of classy/expensive/arty signs and I think they are gorgeous!
But they aint me. My signs look just like they always have. Pretty awful
but functional. Sort of like me. But there is a point. I just want folks to
understand that you do not have to spend oodles of energy or the big
bucks/pounds/yen to have a great meeting. Plain and simple does just as
well. Maybe better.

Hello Open Spacers,
Its amazing to me that I can send an email from my desk in London and share
with thousands (it must be that, at least?) of Open Spacers across the globe
in seconds. That is so wicked!
I have two things to share:
1. Next week I will lead my first Open Space to paying customers. A
bunch of accountants and customer-service representatives at a large
publishing company in the UK have decided Open Space is something they want
to try as they create what theyre up to for the next 12 months. Im so
excited and Im so nervous! I look forward to sharing the story with you,
but I have a quick question which Im sure someone can answer: Generally I
make the signs for the OS on the day, usually in marker and rarely very
neatly. For some reason I feel like I should have printed signs for this
one. Anyone have an opinion why one is better than the other? (I imagine
this is just my nerves trying to get it right, but I thought Id just
check.) Cheers for any advice!
2. I thought some of you might be interested in something I am a part
of: Creating the World We Want in Education. This is the first themed
Creating the World We Want event we are running in London (some of you may
have been to or heard of our previous events). If you or anyone you know is
passionate about young people, education or the future of society, and you
live in London, I would love to see you there. Cost is just £10 to cover
expenses and its going to be a really great day. The invitation is below.
If youre interested or have any questions, please email me, Bridget Peake
on bpeake at yahoo.com.
Thanks to everyone for your wisdom, your sharing and your listening. I look
forward to your stories (and sharing mine!)
Creating the World We Want in Education
Imagine schools as places of encouragement and inspiration for teachers and
all young people; a generation of young people who take responsibility and
become leaders in their communities; teachers empowered to nourish the
possibility present in each young person; a system that fosters dreams and
gives every single person the opportunity to fulfil on them; schools as
places that transform their communities
An education system that gives every young person the chance and the skills
to be happy, fulfilled and successful and make the contribution they want to
make, now and ongoingly.
What would this look like?
How would it work?
What would this provide for society and the world at large?
What would it be like for everyone involved?
Is this what we want?
If so, how can we make it happen?
You are invited to come and spend the day discovering, sharing and
co-creating what else is possible in education. Whatever your background,
your knowledge or your experience, if you are passionate about creating the
future for our children and our world, this day is for you.
Saturday 19TH June 2004
