Growing and nurturing ecosystems
Facing a challenge bigger than yourself?
The increasingly interconnected nature of the challenges our society faces today, requires us to find answers through a more systemic approach. We facilitate the emergence and strengthening of networks and communities working together towards common goals, promoting cross-sectoral, multidisciplinary collaboration.
Evaluate, Engage, Evolve
Ain’t no mountain high enough.
Step by step we dismantle the challenge that lies ahead of you, whether it’s strategic or organisational. Together we create the necessary conditions to choose the right direction, tap into your organisation’s collective creativity and co-create solutions that work for you.
Design for Impact
Not (yet) using your full potential?
Flourishing people lead to flourishing organisations. We support you and your team in recognising and strengthening your innovative qualities and capacities. We start from what is there already, and help you find that new language you didn’t know you needed.
A sherpa is an experienced guide helping others on a mountain climbing expedition. Our Sherpas design and facilitate ambitious learning journeys that will support you and your organisation to generate sustainable impact within your field.
Otherwhere is an archaic adverb from the 14th century meaning “in or to another place”, or simply “elsewhere”. The concept of ‘otherwhere' preserves some mystery when it comes to the final destination, yet always reminds us where we come from. The journey is essential.
Owner and Sherpa
Ruben is a process facilitator, idea generator and methodology master pur sang. With his warm and pragmatic approach he disarms every situation, translating insights and challenges into real opportunities. Not surprisingly you will find Ruben the happiest when he is on a long hike with his dog, somewhere up in the mountains.
As a multipotentialite, Conny loves to search for and nurture potential in others, be it individuals, teams or organisations. She approaches every project with curiosity, energy and enthusiasm. In her free time she loves broadening her horizon, and discover new places and cultures – preferably by bike or with her backpack.
Federico has a beating heart for creating societal impact, whether it’s local or transnational. Being a real strategic thinker, he's your best ally for your next campaign or action plan. When he is not breaking the waves of your organisation, he is probably surfing actual waves on a beach somewhere in Portugal or South-East Asia.
