The Nextsensing Project has added 10 new NextSensors. The co-founder of Brilliant Lab, the author of Reinventing You, the VP of the Innovation Programme Office at DSM, the Managing Director of Talent & Leadership Solutions, the Executive Director of Executive Education at the Macquarie Graduate School of Management, the founder of Bombay Clothing, someone who has worked in the business development area in both Asia and Oceania, someone who is committed to finding the best way to measure iconicity, a New York-qualified capital markets lawyer with experience working in three of the top financial centers of the world, and the Executive VP of Product and Operations for Intralinks — all of these ultra-talented people are now part of our nextsensing initiative.
I am both thrilled and honoured to have the opportunity to work with them as well as with our equally talented original 16 NextSensors.
What do NextSensors do? When I invite people to join our team, I tell them that there three main ways they can participate in our work.
- NextSensors are antennae. Our team uses social media to track trends and often suggest topics for us to write about. They also help to broadcast developments on our site.
- NextSensors are investigative reporters. Whether working on a personal interest and trying to pin down what they suspect is “next-worthy” or whether they are involved in a major community effort, such as our NextBrief on the future of television, our team members are working to think in new ways.
- NextSensors are authors. I invite any of our team members to write a guest blog, and many have. Featuring the individual thoughts of our team members is always a high priority!
You can read about all of our NextSensors on a newly-designed web page. Just click here [link] or on the “Project Team” button off this home page. For now, allow me to introduce you to our new members by this quick name list: Nede Al-Dihany, Dorie Clark, Jorge Fernandes, Siegfried Hoenle, Paul Kirkbride, Deep Mehta, Nancy Mu, Kyle Pierson, Jennifer Poh, Fahim Siddiqui.
By the way, the NextSensor team now represents 17 different nationalities based in 24 cities — from Madrid, Spain, to Cordoba, Argentina; from Sydney, Australia, to Boston, Massachusetts; from St. Petersburg, Russia, to St. Petersburg, Florida. The Nextsensing Project is a global project.
I am privileged to be able to work with such a fantastic team!
