“If I give you a dollar and you give me a dollar, each of us will only have one dollar. But if you give me one idea and I give you another idea, we will both have two ideas.” Unknown
All too often we tend to favour well-established ideas that are deeply interwoven with and influenced by our personal and professional lives. Put another way we don’t think “out of the box” nearly enough. As a result, we limit our exposure to those other ideas that can create a “Eureka” moment and compel us to think a bit differently, question some of our beliefs and assumptions and make new connections.
This is not good because the novel ideas may well be those that reveal new ways of looking at familiar things, thus leading to a new project, a new investment, or a new endeavour. Our Ideas Dinners are both a catalyst for and shortcut to a potent source of just such ideas. No lengthy treaties, books, or articles to read – just enjoy listening to what everybody around the table has to say.
