Around the Campfire — Telling Stories About Knowledge

After a week at the entrepreneurial grind, Friday doesn't necessarily translate to a cessation of work, but it does mean you can celebrate another week in the game and a few deliverables out the door, etc. Before the stampede to the local tavern (back near the PC Supermarket), the instructors downstairs at Global Village had spent the day deconstructing the previous week's classes (following Peter Drucker's dictum: "Follow effective action with quiet reflection. From the quiet reflection will come even more effective action".)

What they came up with is as cool as it is simple: a series of events (I won't call them classes since it won't the same old boring structure where someone stands up and drones on punctuated by a few games and exercises) that tell stories about knowledge. Interactive, multimedia, facilitated, fun. We're calling them Campfire Stories and we're setting them up like this:
  • Organized around themes that matter to people
  • Highly interactive and media-centric
  • Focused on impact that transmits valuable, living knowledge vs. than desiccated data
  • Short duration (we have free elearning modules online to support the rote portion)
  • Priced so anyone can come (php200)
