Shannon Hopkins

Shannon Hopkins is an extreme networker and social entrepreneur. She lives in East London but is a Texas native. She was always the top seller in anything growing up (Girl Scout cookies, raffles, cake sales) and had a very successful lemonade stand! Selecting from the Transformational Index phrases, she draws “Inspiration…. positive words and deeds can cast a spell on people. Engage people’s imaginations to consider a different, dignified and positive future.” From her perspective, “I think we undervalue what inspires us and moves us to act….. but once someone is...

Andy Schofield

Andy likes putting things together. Obsessed by Lego as a child, he’d muddle up all the sets and try to build something new without any instructions. He now does much the same in the fields of sustainable development and social enterprise, although he is less worried about the pieces being the same colour. Andy likes optimisation and proliferation as principles that can help make more good things happen when the right people and processes come together. Andy splits his time between Cocreate, a specialist consultancy practice which he cofounded, and Matryoshka Haus. He...

Brad Sargent is based in San Francisco and is a cultural analyst, futurist, and organizational design researcher and curriculum developer. However, since most people have no idea what those are – and sometimes, he admits even he doesn’t – he usually just says, “I am SuperHero Sidekick” helping people identify, validate, amplify, and activate their superpowers. The T.I. Indicator that strikes him most is “Recovery: Use failed practices to create positive learning. In other words, dust off your britches and get back on your horse.” Through the years, he’s had...

Martin Lawson

Martin Lawson loves to pursue ‘big picture’ thinking, but can get quite nerdy about detail as well – he attributes some of this to a background in engineering where taking things apart, seeing how they work, and putting them back together so they work better is part of what he does.  Having worked as a senior manager in a UK corporate context, and then also in a charity setting in North Africa, he brings a broad range of experience and expertise to his work with others.  He would summarise what he does as “helping people think, then helping them do” – a mix of reflective...
