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.
