Why I'm Learning Out Loud
The beginning of a newsletter experiment
I enjoy exploring big questions
What is the future of advocacy for catalysing change on systemic issues? What is the role, if any, of white men in dismantling systems of oppression Where is facilitation and coaching most needed for systemic change? How can freelancers be leaders? How can we build a 'larger us' and work across divides without being co-opted into the status quo?
Who am I?
I'm Jamie, a London-based facilitator, coach, convenor, consultant and drummer. I’m a gatherer and connector of ideas and learn best when I’m sharing these with other people. 2021 has been a year of transition for me - leaving some teams, becoming properly freelance and getting married - and at times of change, learning becomes even more important.
Expect a mix of content.
The topics I'm most interested in right now include: anti-oppressive practice; coaching and facilitation; convening and community building; courage and conflict; futures; governance; horizontal leadership; narratives; new economics and systems change.
Let's see what emerges.
