Hi everyone,

Welcome to our brand new forum! It's the place to connect, learn, share, and take action to make work more fun.

I'll use my very first "topic" to invite you to create an account and introduce yourself right here.

So, who are you? Why are you here? And what do you want to get out of this forum?

Look forward to get to know all of you!

I work for a Housing Association in South Wales and I don't currently have a job title.

My organisation is currently very traditional in structure and management practises. Thankfully my leaders want us to become more progressive. The team I work in are the first step towards this so we're rebelling against the system.

I'm here to be inspired by the community and to share our experiments in the hope that they start conversations.

Awesome! My name is Florine. I'm lucky enough to work with Corporate Rebels, through their new venture 'Revolt'.
With Revolt we help companies transform to progressive workplaces, so that employees and customers are happy and the company has a healthy growth.
I'm here to connect with other rebels, to learn from others, and to share my own learnings and insights.

I live in Amsterdam and love to get into the ocean or mountains when I have time off.

Hi, I'm Linda and work for a rather large business software company in Germany. The company started fairly progressive 45 years ago, but has grown more traditional as it grew in size.
Now we have pockets within the organization looking to reintroduce some of those values, (lack of) structures, and ways of working. I'm part of one of those pockets :)
Here, I hope to encounter like-minded people, open to sharing and inspiring others.

Hello from beautiful Orkney Pim and Joost!

Loving the new Forum and continuing to spread the word across Scotland and wider across UK - 2 groups have approached me to ask about Corporate Rebels and I have recommended your workshops!

Have a great day.

Naturally rebellious Welshman living and working in Orkney for the time being, bit of a rolling stone though so who knows where gravity will take me next! it's all downhill from here! Hahahah :)

Just sat sipping my brew, blasting out some filthy Drum & Bass on Soundcloud, whilst perusing this new forum with interest...

Enjoyed the CR session in Orkney a few weeks back. Was interesting to see and hear from Joost & Pim, hope you guys enjoyed the magnificent Orcadian scenery and great historical sites. Also the sandwiches were good, despite the lack of plates - made for some good problem solving skills though; who needs plates when you have saucers leftover from the earlier coffee?! ;)

I am keen to see how this new paradigm can be achieved but doubtful that it can be shifted to in monolithic organisations such as the NHS and Local Government.

I do think that in such institutions there will be an innate resistance to any form of change as it will be seen as threatening to the status quo and the petty fiefdoms and power bases which some will have accrued.

Just a personal belief, doesn't make it right! Perhaps i'm too much of a cynic?

Hiya :wave:
My name is Felix and I’m part of a company I’d call a ‘corporate startup’ where I act as Developer Advocate and Change Agent — if you wanna know more what’s behind that, let me know.
My background is mainly on the engineering part but due to my interdisciplinary education I’m kind of an allrounder. So besides the usual developer advocacy work I help our VPEs in terms of organizational effectiveness, employee experience & other more cultural topics.

Sometimes I share some thoughts on daheq.com
Looking forward to interesting discussions and exchange! Cheers

Great new improved site, Rebels, congratulations!
I'm working from Portugal, networking to promote the healthy workplace concept. Are you aware of any Portuguese organisations that have embraced the concept and are applying it? I haven't found examples so far and your bucket list doesn't mention any but I will continue my research.
Thanks!

Hi Michael,

We've come to know some organizations that are working hard to become more progressive, but we don't have any clear examples yet. I guess they must be in Portugal too, sometimes it just takes a very long time to find them.

Any ideas how to find progressive organizations over there so we can add Portugal on the Bucket List?

I'm working on it, Rebels, and will definitely get back to you. Unfortunately, as you already mentioned, it takes some time to identify them.

Hey Linda,

Great to see you here. Hope the Rebel Event in Zürich gave you some inspiration for what you are working on!

Hi, my name is Ellen.

Happy to say that I have been working at Corporate Rebels since September 2018.

My main focus is researching progressive organisations to see how we can all learn from them.

I am also responsible for organising Rebel Events. We try to have one a month in a city that could be anywhere in the world - to share what we learn. It is wonderful that at Rebel Events it is not only us sharing but also those people attending who work in progressive ways and to best practice.

Happy to see the Forum up and running now. Hope this will be a pond for sharing - with the goal to make work more fun!
