Work needs more play – and not just because it makes people feel good. Play can make a person – and a company – more resilient, more creative and more innovative.

The Red Rubber Ball at Work does a great job of saying why play is important – from the points of view of many different people in business, from product designers to salespeople to Seth Godin.

For more information on play and its role in the growth cycle (from chaos to competence), see chapter one of the Jolt Challenge, an excellent book I’ve just finished. A review is coming your way soon!

Meantime, enjoy this review and I’d love to hear what you think!

The Race to Carista

November 23rd, 2009

We had an amazing media team for Friday night’s launch of #sy at the beautiful Carista House. However, they had a bit of trouble getting there, as this web video series shows:

Before, long, we could hear and see the team.

…and once all that drama was over, it was time to unveil what #sy is all about:

What on earth is #sy?

November 20th, 2009

After just two days of intense speculation on Twitter, it’s time to pull the covers off #sy!

There are three parts to this story.

1. #sy is the social media consultancy formerly known as iJump! You can find the #sy website here. Meanwhile, the iJump blog and iJumpTVĀ  will remain as a not-for-profit, community resource to grow collective wisdom about the future of business.

2. Our launch party is tonight, November 20th, and we’re going to help our guests – many of whom are absolute beginners at social media – experience, rather than just hear about, social media engagement. That means connecting them with you – the people who read this blog, who tweet, who Facebook regularly. It’s about building connections and creating mutual understanding. And it really excites me!

3. We’re also launching an ambitious plan… but perhaps I’m speaking too soon. I’ll keep tight-lipped on that one for now.

Meanwhile, stay tuned to the #sy hashtag. Our media team James, Courtney and Lewis have some great adventures planned on the way to the venue.

We look forward to learning with you. What’s been your impressions of #sy so far?
