IDEAS DINNERS

“If I give you a dollar and you give me a dollar, each of us will only have one dollar. But if you give me one idea and I give you another idea, we will both have two ideas” – (source unknown).

Too often, we have a tendency to favor those well-established ideas that are deeply interwoven with and influenced by our personal and professional lives. In consequence we rarely think “out of the box” in a way that yields new ideas that can create a “Eureka” moment and compel us to question some of our beliefs, values and assumptions.

This is regrettable because novel ideas are just those that may open the gate for new ways of looking at familiar things, thus leading to a new project, a new investment, or a new endeavor. Our Ideas’ dinners are an effective shortcut and catalyst to come up with such news ideas (we don’t have to read lengthy treaties, books, or articles – we just listen to what everybody around the table has to suggest).

HOW DO THE IDEAS’ DINNERS WORK?

They are organized throughout the year in various locations (London, Geneva, Paris, NYC, Chamonix, Washington DC, Singapore, etc.) and on each occasion gather 20 participants max (not exclusively Summit of Minds participants, but all subscribers of the Monthly Barometer). The choice of guests is essential: they must come from varied backgrounds and have different perspectives to avoid the trap of group think and lame ideas. Diversity is therefore key!

To succeed, the dinner requires a bit of preparation on the part of everybody but it’s a great challenge to embrace. Guests normally get excited and interested. If it works well (as it normally does), everybody leaves enriched by 19 new ideas! The Monthly Barometer team then compiles a curated précis of the ideas arising from each dinner.

WHAT SORT OF IDEAS?

There is no limitation in terms of what sort of ideas should be submitted to the group. Of course, coming up with a new idea that nobody in the group knows about is virtually impossible – we all know, as Mark Twain once said when discussing the combinatorial nature of creativity, that “all good ideas are second-hand”!

Premium and institutional subscribers have access to the curated précis of ideas, emanating from dinners in all locations. Those interested in any particular idea have the chance, after an initial conversation with us, to connect with the person who formulated the idea with a view to moving it forward.

A curated précis of ideas from the most recent dinners is available to members below.
