Helen Keller June 27, 1880 – June 1, 1968 - an amazing female pioneer, so very inspirational, overcoming her disabilities to achieve so much in her life. One of her quotes is one of my mantras and still famous to day.

"Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much"

She became blind and deaf, contracted through an illness, at 19 months old. This did not stop her, she became the first deaf/blind woman to get a bachelors of arts degree, travelled the world. She was a writer (12 books, including autobiographical works), she was a strong advocate for disability rights leading the way for how deafness and blindness are looked at today. She was a suffragist, a socialist and advocate for birth control, at a time when being a woman, let alone being deaf and blind were not conducive to being a contributing member of society. What a woman and what a pioneer.

Yes! Seddon has published some case studies that might be more palatable than reading a whole book. The case studies describe the real change. Or this example in health and social care.

Kristen Hadeed, CEO of Student Made (previously Student Maid). She is so incredibly authentic and her book, Permission to Screw Up is a refreshing change as she's so open about the mistakes she made along the success path.

What about Gareth Flynn at TQSolutions? Whilst we are a small company still by comparison to others, Gareth started the business 12 years ago and immediately did away with the bureaucracy found in traditional corporates. Quite a few of the things you speak off about reporting lines, autonomy, choosing how, when and where you work, equity, collaborative decision making, do as much or as little development as you like as part of your day to day role, passion projects etc, all apply at TQ. He also has some great ideas about how to attract, engage and mobilise talent.
