 Spencer thank you for contacting me. I had a look at https://compasspointcap.com/ Interesting. 30 years ago i wanted to change how ceos did purposeful branding and I started to realise I learnt much more from benchmarking place branding where maximising community engagement when its done collaboratively for all communities than even market sectors I had previously  spent my life researching. So first could you share some places you are working on most. I have copied 3 people who likely know more than i do on emotionally intelligent place building including our two joint contacts; carrie and I started occasionally meeting as both of us from 2008 have spent a lot of time understanding how women built bangladesh.  When Muhammad Yunus lost much of his work in Bangladesh due to politics, atlanta and georgia asked him to make their communities his number 1 residence abroad. 5 years of connections round this 2009-2014 didnt quite come together- ultimately yunus who had been supported by king family, ted turner family, jimmy carter family, and a lot of green friends eg astronaut ron garan got in conflict with the mayor of atlanta and thurgood marshall fund. I only partly know why but by that time strongly believed in many georgia and alabama students but had no direct ways forward. I see that colin continues that. Meanwhile while I only came to know of rebeccas work out of plymouth MA a month ago- i find she has done more than 100 zooms with emotionally intelligent community builders. Can we chat a bit to understand your projects and see if theer are any immediate wi-wins. At the moment all over the world where i learn something i try and find a twin knowledge community in new york. I am just a diaspora scot liviing in washington Dc region by accident. I dont see either political party as helping end covid, repair nature, sort out education crises i have deeply mapped including 4 outstanding asian education summits in december all 4 of which have now reached america -see footnote . In fact thats why i want communities of people to massively support the under 35s be the sustainable generation. I dont know if my apolitical view helps of hinders vis a vis what you all can uniquely progress.

Education summits:

wise qatar sdg advocate sheika mosa made new yorker wendy kopp its 10th laureates - nearly 30 years ago she started teach for america as a teachers corps // peace corps- why not spend first 2 years after graduating tackling deep education challenges before going into the system. she has extended that to 60 countries -and her 20020s vision is to get teachers everywhere going beyond examining and helping empower talents; helping anything connecting with her is an absolute priority for me now that my main mentor sir fazle abed has gone. Scot gordon brown reunited every part of the Un that has anything to do with education at www.rewired2021.com in dubai during the knowledge week of the uae expo. On eof hong kong's riches ment who made his money as co-founder of tencent has established the yidan prize. While its focus areas are africa and asia , he's linked in experts from stanford and harvrad and oxbridge in ways I have never seen before. Varkey's million doilar teacher prize was awarded this year to a black american teaxher in maryland. Spencer I am a liittle bit confused are you in new york or florida. By coincidence i recently met a carribean american graduate of Georgetown who operates estate-place projects out of brooklyn and miami. celebrating graduates of community engagement is what soros announced as his refocus at weforum 2020 starting with his central european uni moved to vienna and new york states only university led by a musician as well as tufts boston-- my father did the biography of budapest's other most famous son von neumann - with a second book out on futures neumann alumni are pivotal to- its time to integrate tech wizards and emotionally intelligent community builders  and millennials imo. Finally I have a lot of adam smith scholar friends in Glasgow if that's anyone's cup of tea.
