  • About Us

    Your Sherpa for Social Innovation

    OTHERWHERE wants to play an active, positive role in today’s changing society by helping you, your team and organisation in reaching your desired destination. We design and facilitate participative learning journeys. We support you in shaping your next workshop, conference or team meeting. Always in co-creation with you and your team.

     

    Together we create a safe environment that enables you to walk paths never walked before. Together we open up space for new ideas and opportunities to emerge, starting from the valuable seeds that are already there. Together we build communities larger and stronger than the oldest mountain chains, mindful of the systems in which we operate. Together we activate a growth mindset that will make you, your team and organisation impact entire continents, as powerful as the Eyjafjallajökull.

     

    You choose your destination, our Sherpas will guide you along the way.

  • Sherpa?

    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.

    /ˈʌðəwɛː/

    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.

  • Stronger teams in times of social distancing

    Unlock the collaborative powers of your team. We offer you Team&Space, a one-day face-to-face workshop to help your team settling into the new reality.

     

  • Your Destination

    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.

  • Guiding Principles

    Appreciative Inquiry

    Systems evolve in the direction of the questions we ask. Through an appreciative perspective, we do right to all involved, increase the learning opportunities – and the motivation to put new things into practice.

    Co-creation

    We actively involve all stakeholders in the design process to ensure the result meets the needs of the organisation. Together with our clients we co-create new ways of working that generate real impact.

    Strategic design

    To survive in today’s rapidly changing world, organisations must not only anticipate change, but drive it. We use future-oriented design principles to tap into and increase your organisation's innovative qualities.

    Tailor-made

    All our processes are uniquely designed for your organisation to answer your specific needs. Our Sherpas take you to mountain peaks never climbed before.

    Chief Innovation Officer

    Ruben is a process facilitator and idea generator pur sang. He sees connections everywhere, translating them into real opportunities. Not surprisingly you will find Ruben the happiest when he is on a long hike somewhere up in the mountains.

    Federico Guerrieri

    Chief Catalyst Agent

    Federico has a beating heart for creating societal impact, whether it’s local or transnational. When he is not breaking the waves of your organisation, he is probably surfing actual waves on a beach in Portugal or South-East Asia.
