Great gatherings - workshop @ Oxford, next steps

As promised I bring you some writing from the Oxford workshop "a SF approach to working with large groups".

Or... to be honest I actually break my promise but for the better.

So many good conversations with great inputs followed during, inbetween and after the workshops (I ended up doing a Opens Space on same topic) so I've decided to put on whatever I write regarding working with large groups on:…

A photoprotocol of the exploratory workshop at SOLWorld conference 2011, Balatonfüred, Hungary.

How do we discover these ghosts and…

Jesper, I have a question: I am looking for small interventions you can do on a TedX event. It will be a group of 1000 participants listening to Tedtalks all day. I would like to do some small energizers in between talks, to freshen them up. They will be sitting in chairs in a large theater, so they will have limited space to move. Do you have ideas what to do with them to make them fresh listeners again? Thanks for your answer!

Thanks Jesper.  Is it 58 1/2 forslag til improvisering under traening?  That's certainly one of my favourites!

Hi Jesper,
the workshop you held together with George and Corina during the conference at Bukarest was very interesting. I'm going to use elements of it next week during a leadership training here in Berne. I loved e.g. the gift mingling - among other things.
Thanks for sharing. Have a wonderful day, Julia

You prefer a "step by step" introduction instead to start with reading some

You would appreciate to have a complete "helicopter view" on SF after the first step…
