[See post below for a Dutch version]

 

This year we celebrate our 40th anniversary as Kessels & Smit. A reason to reflect on who we are, what we do and what we want to contribute to the world. We will do this by organising an Appreciative Inquiry Summit – facilitated by David Cooperrider, the founder of this way of working. We call it MADE: Make A Difference Event. During three days we invite a large group of people to work on the question how to make a positive difference in our work and in this world. A question that is relevant for many people. That's why we invited diferent people from all kinds of backgrounds, personalities and countries to join us in our inquiry.

 

Working towards the actual summit in May, this website is a place to show some of the proces. For those who will join, but also if you're not joining but just curious to see what's happening. After the summit this online meeting spot can be a valuable place to share insights and outcomes. It is an experiment, and not yet flawless. For instance: not all concent is available in English, yet... Sorry! We are working on it. 

 

On this special website you can items on several topics, those already available in ENGLISH have (EN) behind the name:

 

·       "The start”: Interviews with the initiators of the summit

·       "Interview with David Cooperrider": What does the topic mean to him? (EN)

·       "On topic": what's the central theme of the summit? (EN)

·       "Meet the People”: Get to know other guests. Who are they and why are they coming? 

·       “The why”: The story behind the summit 

·       "The Making off": Stories about the design and proces of making the summit reality 

·       "Who’s talking?”: Introducting Kessels & Smit colleagues

·       Sneak preview": What to expect of the summit? Here you find input on the program and the flow of the days

 

As the summit approaches, we will publish interviews, movies, news items and more. All produced by the MADE Mediateam.

Hi, this is Liz Harrison again. Apologies for contacting you AGAIN through your contact form but I didn't want you to miss out on this limited time offer to earn serious money (millions of dollars annually) through real-estate. I know, you are probably thinking, who is this Liz Harrison? Is this a phishing email or worse? I assure you it is not. My honest and sincere offer is this. I am a former receptionist and housewife.

This isn’t limited to America, but can be done anywhere in the world, with little start-up money needed. I also make an additional side-income (which helps to pay for the kids college tuition) by recommending the same product that got me started on this millionaire journey. I am only promoting this as I know that it works AND have seen it work wonders for me. It is an easy to use digital product that you can download to your computer for under $50 >> discounted down from $399 >> https://bit.ly/foreclosuremillionsdownload << This product is available to download from Click Bank, the largest digital learning product seller in the world.

Hello, I’m Helen Slade. Apologies for contacting you AGAIN through your contact form, but I work with CitiCorp and we are contacting dynamic people who wish to earn BIG money whilst still keeping their existing jobs or businesses. I work for CitiCorp, making $6,000 a month, but make far more money in my side hustle and my employer, CitiCorp, loves it as it shows my dynamism and initiative. Want to earn big money doing the same thing? Check out this turbo-charged profit-making system that I am recommending. I use it myself to make over £30,000 a month and want others to also benefit. It is on offer for a very limited time for under $100, with the usual RRP being $999. I’ll be honest and say that I also get a small commission, if you try and like the system, as I am ever the hustler, but this is still pocket change compared to how much I make actually using the system myself, and how much you will make. If you try it and don’t like it then you can return it for a no-quibble refund. This digital information system is sold through Click Bank, the world’s largest online seller of digital profit-making systems, and backed up by their return policy and super-secure website and payment processor. If, like me, you don’t have time to waste and want to download this concise, money-making system now then click >> https://bit.ly/sidehustlemillionsdirectdownload << If however you’re someone who has time to spare before downloading the digital product and want to be shown the full sales presentation beforehand, then click >> https://bit.ly/sidehustlemillions >> After viewing the sales presentation, don’t forget to click on the direct download link (save it/bookmark it for easy reference). Here it is again once more >> https://bit.ly/sidehustlemillionsdirectdownload << This system can be used anywhere in the world, whichever country you are in. Don’t procrastinate, just download now and use the system whenever you’re ready to become a millionaire! Thanks again for reading, and please remember me when you make your first million dollars using this recommendation. Best wishes, Helen Slade, Manhattan, New York, USA Lees meer...

Hey, today's last call for Dean and Tony’s unprecedented 2022 Project Next offer for Time To Thrive challenge members only...



And since you asked, Dean and Tony made a decision yesterday to deliver and allow you Instant Access to Project Next PLUS all the bonuses for $199.



Yes because you asked, they made the pay plan that much more affordable. But it's a FACT that at midnight the "challenge only" offer goes away and regret stinks...



Click here to join the Project Next Experience + get the awesome bonuses before it's gone at midnight



https://prnext.net/



Let me pull back the curtain and share what prompted this for Dean and Tony. You may want to model in your future campaigns.



Their teams have answered over 9,000 emails and messages so far and have been working around the clock to do so. And sooooo many of them have a similar theme.



"Loved the challenge, love the opportunity with Project Next, know that I can launch or scale"... but even though they literally already cut the price of the course in half, some people could still use a little help on price.



When you join the program with all four components you will see that this is truly worth $11,000 or more. That's not hyperbole. That's reality...



But Dean and Tony don't want to let anyone miss out who needs the education, skills and tools to launch and scale their own knowledge business at a time like this. Being left behind stinks.



So they decided yesterday to create a payment plan so that when you pay just $199 you can get immediate, full access to everything.



You get to join Dean tomorrow on his first live kick off training, you get all the bonuses, you still get a ticket to attend the World Summit LIVE event in September and all the rest...



Use this link to join the Project Next Experience + get the awesome bonuses before it's gone



https://prnext.net/



But let me be really frank here. This special offer and all the bonuses truly goes away tonight at midnight... Yes truly!!!



If you're ready to stop playing small, ready to unleash your next level creativity, to serve others and to have an opportunity to create real sustainable success in what I believe is the greatest industry on the planet...



Then no more delays, because the next emotion you feel tomorrow could be regret of missing out. Don't let an old belief or story stop you from a new you!!



Click here to join the Project Next Experience + get the awesome bonuses before it's gone at midnight



https://prnext.net/



 
See you inside,

That’s right.

The whole "Be a good little boy/girl.

Get good grades.

Go to college.

Find a good job.

Put away money into your retirement account and you’ll be just fine" charade is collapsing right under our noses.

We’ve been PLAYED.

We’ve been led to believe that happiness and security were waiting for us if only we did as we were told.

If only we followed the path laid out for us, we’d be ok.

But surveys show 1 in 3 Americans have no retirement savings.

Surveys show most Americans don't have even $1,000 in their bank account.

And this may sound crazy... but surveys show that only 20% of Americans are free of debt.

Horrifying stats...

But honestly, not surprising.

Not when millions of students nationwide borrow as much as $40K A YEAR with the dream of getting a degree that’s supposed to open doors for them…

Only to see themselves having to go back to their parents' place because there just aren’t any jobs for their line of work.

Worst of all?

Student loans are one of THE ONLY non-forgiven debts in this country, so even if you file bankruptcy you can’t have them wiped clean.

As if that wasn’t enough, it seems like every decent paying job is either being replaced by automation through software or robots, or it’s being shipped overseas so companies can save a few dollars on payrolls.

It’s no wonder that a new report from the McKinsey Global Institute, "Poorer than their Parents: Flat or Falling Incomes in Advanced Economies," shows a drastic trend in declining incomes for middle class workers.

The report found that as much as 70% of households saw their earnings drop in the past decade.

To put it bluntly?

Those who had been taught to expect their wealth to grow as long as they obediently follow society’s path of choice, have learned that promise is a lie.

And you know what?

This is not your fault.

We’ve all been played!

But it IS your RESPONSIBILITY to do something about it and guarantee that you and your family will NOT be played anymore.

Go to www.15daychallenge.biz To See How You Can Stop Being Played TODAY And Put Your Financial Future In Your Own Hands

The information in this video will change your life...

IF you decide to act on it.

- Reactie op bijdrage: WHO'S TALKING: Een kennismaking
Het thema "radicale verbinding maken" roept grote verwachtingen op, om met de toenemende fragmentering, polarisering en machtsspelen tussen sterke en minder sterke actoren een leefbare gemeenschap te kunnen maken. Enerzijds de toenemende fragmentering en informatisering, en anderzijds de steeds meer nabij komende globalisering, zetten de relationele praktijken en taalspelen tussen de spelers binnen groepen en organisaties, en vooral nog tussen organisaties, zeer sterk onder druk. Multi-actor samenwerkingspraktijken, die verschillen kunnen her-kaderen naar meerstemmige en divergente 'communities of practice', kunnen ontstaan uit radicale herformuleringen van de huidige tegenstellingen op existentiële, sociale, economische en ecologische breuklijnen. Radicale nieuwe organisatie- en samenlevingsvormen zijn te bedenken, waarin echte maatschappelijke polyfonie mogelijk wordt...Samen sociaal creatief en waarderend worden voor iedere vorm van diversiteit in de grote en ook de kleine dagelijkse dingen, wordt een overlevingsvaardigheid...

I participate in the summit because I believe that being connected is the first and essential step towards a society in which everybody can participate. So the question intrigues me (above all the combination of words - radical and connectedness) and I am anxious to see what we can learn from being connected with so many people during MADE!

Toen Mariël me vroeg was ik heel blij en hoefde ik geen moment na te denken of ik mee wilde doen. Ik ben heel benieuwd naar een AI summit met zo'n grote groep, dat alleen al lijkt me leerzaam. En natuurlijk helemaal met David Cooperider! Verder ben ik benieuwd welke nieuwe, mooie en kansrijke ideeën we met zo'n divers gezelschap kunnen bedenken en uitwerken. Ik zie het als een prachtig en leerzaam experiment en ben heel blij dat ik er aan mee mag doen. Tot volgende week! Lees meer...

I'm looking forward to MADE. I'ld like to experience how appreciative inquiry works, especially with a group of peoplo who do not know eachother. I expect to meet positive people, with great ideas but also with questions about how to implement these ideas in these world we created.
But mostly because it sounds like fun!

I have a concern about the future of our world, and the leadership crisis we seem to be in. In our organisations we need to think carefully abut our role in the world and the difference we seek to make. Are we relevant? Are we having an impact? Is our impact big enough? How do we support people to work effectively with the big problems we face?


(and also, what is the meaning of life - ha ha!) Don't forget to have fun, and enjoy the MADE event!

- Reactie op bijdrage: What is your 'why' to participate in this summit?
I resonate with the word "radical" as it speaks to me of real and holistic societal, economic and environmental transformation for Everyone - not just a privileged minority. This is the abiding question for me: how do we create a socially just and sustainable world for everyone? Where every living being flourishes whilst acknowledging the 3 fundamental ecological laws: diversity, interdependance and finite resources.



I do think AI is a powerful philosophy and methodology to help us move beyond the stark inequality, social injustice and environmental devastation in the world at this time. I'm attending this summit to re-member this and be re-minded; to reconnect, be inspired and learn from the best!



Thank you for the invitation :-)

I feel the 'season' I am in at the moment is about the question; How can I have meaning (in the world, in our society) with the work that I do? And. maybe even more so, with who I am? It's something that is puzzling me already for quite some time. I think the summit is an opportunity to inquire this question.... Lees meer...

Samen maken we deze summit door elkaar van harte te ontmoeten en veel kleine verhalen te delen die samen staan voor een groot verhaal.
Ik ben benieuwd naar wat we vertellen over 'flourishing' en de vele bewegingen die al gaande zijn. Deze rijke oogst is het begin van dit waarderende onderzoek. We build on what is strong. Ik zie voor me hoe we met een cruise terminal vol mensen open staan voor elkaars ervaringen en ideeen en deze nog veel groter maken. Zodat we inspiratie en concrete plannen hebben waar we een verschil mee gaan maken als K&S en in ieders eigen leefwereld. Lees meer...
