Programme description

An Introduction to Bootpeers

N.B.: This is not a course!

This is a video manifesto for those who feel stuck in their (working) life and want to do something about it!

This manifesto attempts to:

1. Give you the permission you need to start doing something you like and that matters!

2. Show you that now it is easier than ever before to start your own initiative and to make a contribution.

3. Start a community of ‘connected’ learners to help one another get started with your individual initiatives.

Joining the Bootpeers Manifesto gives you access to the Bootpeers starting journal, your companion to this introductory video manifesto.

Like any other manifesto, these videos will not provide you with a set of instructions on how to do something, rather it is an invitation to alter your mind-set.

From being compliant and obedient (doing what you are told), to taking the time to discover what works for you and what enables you to bring your best work to life.

Design strategist

Stefano’s aim is to facilitate a design thinking agenda in organisations pursuing a strategic innovation approach. Stefano collaborates with the management of medium sized and large organisations (on ad hoc projects) but also with start-ups, through online learning and group facilitation sessions.

In addition to promoting and facilitating the adoption of a design agenda within organisations, Stefano encourages managers to challenge their current understanding of their work and the mental models they have created to explain reality.

Stefano’s on-line courses invite participants to take part in a conversation about entrepreneurship and its purpose in society. The courses introduce the concepts of strategic thinking and design thinking.

Designing a learning environment inspiring participants to open up their minds and hearts is Stefano's ultimate goal and desire.
