Ep. 83 – In the wild with Dr Barbara Doran

January 31, 2024

In this short ‘in the wild’ episode, Simon (one-half of The Occupational Philosophers) connects with Dr Barbara Doran, Director of Strategic Innovation and Creative Intelligence live from the World Building Studio Day at the University of Technology (UTS) 

In the episode, they explore: 

  • The importance of a transdisciplinary approach to solving complex problems and navigating unchartered territory 
  • Why engaging with storytelling is essential to turning something from an idea to something that is scaleable and how it can influence culture 
  • Why we are all creative and how it can be catalysed in many ways
  • How collaboration drives radical change  
  • How storytelling and film making can drive sustainability 
  • What is the adjacent possible? 

FYI: The Inbetweeners episodes are just that – smaller episodes ‘in between’ the longer format episodes designed to give a little kickstart to enable you to be the most curious, creative and imaginative cat you can be – and have some fun in the process.
