Taking SynNovation to Germany and Austria


Truida and Vincent Nolan meet over coffee

Truida and Heinz Have just returned from more than 7 weeks in Europe.  Four SynNovation workshops with staff and students  at Műnster University, two “Art and Craft of Innovation” workshops in Dortmund, and an open “Toolbox for Brainwaves” workshop in Vienna were a major part of the trip.  Truida also met with members of the European Women’s Management Development Network (EWMD) in Cologne, giving a talk about current issues affecting women in South Africa, and met with potential clients in various cities.  Otherwise, friends, family, nature, art and music filled their time. 

In the UK they met with ex-Synectics friends:  Synectics pioneer Vincent Nolan, Jasmine Dale (who originally trained Heinz, Truida and Lu-Marie in Synectics), and Christine Hurst, who worked in SynNovation with Truida and Lu-Marie when she lived in Cape Town for a few years.
