How do we create meaning? | Albert Boswijk | TEDxStendenUniversity

A co-author of ‘The Experience Economy – How to create meaningful experiences’ will introduce new ways of value creation for businesses. Albert Boswijk is fascinated by the process on how people learn, form and shape their life and create meaning – on how we become alive and energetic and passionate when we discover our purpose in life. He has been studying Andrology, a mixture of philosophy, psychology, sociology, research and management of change, at the University of Amsterdam. A study that is extinguished but is very much needed at present. Albert developed himself as a psycho therapist helping people to find their true self. His work evolved to another level and became engaged in how to ‘humanize business”. After a successful career as change agent and professional rebel he founded the European Centre for the Experience and Transformation Economy in order to help businesses to transform to a new time frame and to create shared meaningful value in society. He published and co-authored two books; The Experience Economy, how to create meaningful experiences and The Economy of Experiences. There are hopeful signals that we move towards a more collaborative economy and a society where trust and value are significantly present.

I have promised myself that I will attend the next PR Salon Meeting in Amsterdam*. While I have tried to in the past, the idea of spending 4h on a train has so far stopped me from it. This time though, the topic hits close to home: the session is all about co-creation and its role in communication.

Fred Zimny‘s insight:

It is indeed that simple.

Working in the Netherlands, I can not confirm that 75% is below sea-level. But yes, services is that important (although government and management does not always behave that accordingly)

Service Design? You could say it’s a “movement” — because “move” it has — clear out of the United States in the early 1990s.  To where?  Fled to Amsterdam, Cologne, Berlin, Copenhagen, Stockholm — places like that, which have traditionally welcomed and harbored refugees from intellectual and spiritual persecution.
