The Anti-Fragile Playbook: The Power of Soft Capital to Change Our Shared Future
The Anti-Fragile Playbook is about investing in the productive capacity of places & populations with historically diminished access to opportunities to build & keep wealth. Financial investment seeds the story, but what’s really needed is access to the tools to seed, root, grow & sustain that wealth locally.
About out speaker:
Ruth Glendinning is the Founder of Future Story Lab, a company with the mission of identifying & activating sense making tools for the unfolding future. The core of her work is building ecosystems of relationships, connections and creative partnerships in projects that are mapped to real needs in the market, catalyzed by expanding technology and activated by personal relationships. As a natural product of the ecosystems built, she designs & implements platforms and systems to develop, product & sustain local wealth. It was here that I emerged the cultural strategy model which demonstrates the importance of creating a balance between community, culture and commerce for sustainable economy and trademarked the “SLOW Tech Incubator™” (Sustainable Local Organic Work + Technology) concept in which specific technology is added to no- or low-tech community-based human-scale businesses to better equip them to thrive.
Ruth brings a complex network of connections at the local, national & global level, all based on trust capital & shared values. Her passion is for inclusion & accessibility, seeking the simple entry point to the complexity of the world, recognizing the patterns of past, present & future events & weaving them into a complex story with a wide variety of elements leveraging the power of the who, what, where, how & why of what's next. This emerges in many forms including language, underlying architecture of ideas, consumer products and locally rooted economic engines.
