Make Meetings More Beautiful: learn from fellow Residents
As we return to work for Q4 of another tumultuous year, how can we make our meetings—the smallest unit of business life—more beautiful? Can we enjoy life-force-restoring check-ins?
How can we innovate more effectively, in ways that generate solutions that take our whole humanity into consideration? How can wearable technology play a role in creating healthier individuals and more coherent teams? What is the role of flow in creating break through innovation?
Join the Edinburgh Chamber of Beautiful Business to change the way you innovate.
Friday, October 29 – Friday, November 26, 2021
Progress is born in bold new ideas but is felt in the very practical. So we’ve choreographed five thought-provoking main acts, followed by a four-week online learning program to make it all real.
Let’s dream big—and build: new workplaces, new identities, new worlds. Out: commitment issues. In: a new stability that frees you to be whoever you want.
Let’s begin again. With concrete love.

How to Turn Your Company Into an Imagination Machine
A masterclass with Martin Reeves, chairman of the BCG Henderson Institute
Participation is limited to 30 Residents
We need imagination now more than ever—to find new opportunities, rethink our businesses, and discover paths to growth. Yet too many companies have lost their ability to imagine. What is this mysterious capacity? How does imagination work? And how can organizations keep it alive and harness it systematically?

Drawing on the experience and perspectives of CEOs across several industries, as well as lessons from neuroscience, computer science, psychology, and philosophy, The Imagination Machine provides a fascinating look into the mechanics of imagination and lays out a six-step process for creating ideas and bringing them to life.
