Looking at my diary today I am reminded that it is a year to the day since I first met Johnnie Moore for a coffee and a chat in London. We spoke about shipwrecks, facilitation becoming the new black, either or to yes and, branding the living and living the brand, organisations unable to be something on the outside they were not already on the inside, the role of social software and how to save the world. Not bad for two complete strangers spending two hours in conversation over two cups of coffee. Johnnie is one of the most talented facilitators I’ve been fortunate enough to meet in my travels. So a very public thank you Johnnie for all the inspiration and for sharing over the last year.
