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.

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.
As we're getting ready to launch the first cohorts of students for the Corporate Rebels Academy we are excited to release yet another sneak peek into the course content. Recently we shared the first video animation about the Chinese white goods giant Haier. Now it is time to release the second post in a series of videos on the world's most pioneering organizations. This time it is all about the Dutch health-care organization Buurtzorg.
