What we can learn from Ikea and Formula one

Remember that time when you had a fraction of the budget, time and resources to execute a specific project? Our first reaction in those situations is to usually think ‘it’s impossible’. But, constraints can be positive, fertile, enabling, and an opportunity to do things differently. We just need to stop, and reevaluate. Look at IKEA*. […]

Brazil through TIE’s eyes

This past Sunday, Brazil elected a new president. The electoral campaign was polarized from the start, with hate speech and attacks everywhere. Everyone I know had some sort of fight or disagreement with family members, friends, co-workers and even strangers because of the elections. While half of the Brazilian population was celebrating Jair Bolsonaro’s victory, […]

You’re invited to TIE Stories: Necessity is the Mother of Invention

Imagine. Being in a place you’ve never been to before. Working with people you’ve never worked with before. In a language you’ve probably never spoken before. You don’t have your usual team to help you out. And you have only a fraction of the money you usually have to create something. You just have an […]

Necessity is the mother of invention

Imagine. Being in a place you’ve never been to before. Working with people you’ve never worked with before. In a language you’ve probably never spoken before. You have a fraction of the money you usually have to create something. Nor your usual team. You have an objective. And you have 30 days to reach it. […]

What you see when you step out of the ordinary

To step out of your comfort zone, out of your silo, and completely embrace a new culture is extremely powerful. You start to see the world in a different light, see new ways of doing things, and realise that we in the West probably don’t have all of the answers. We’ve just finished three hugely […]

Becoming more purposeful: challenges and opportunities

We love meeting like-minded people. And if you’re like us, you’ll agree that there are few things better than sitting down with someone that shares your passion, and exchanging stories. When I was last in London I had the pleasure to sit down with none other than Soulla Kyriacou, the COO of A Blueprint for […]

What they really think

So I’m off on a bit of a world tour today. An exciting few weeks ahead that will not only find me in some beautiful cities (San Francisco, Toronto, New York and London), but also meeting some absolutely fantastic people and companies. These trips always give me the buzz I need to keep doing what […]

A massive thank you from the bottom of our hearts to the FCB Global and Toronto teams for putting this fantastic ‘30 Days On TIE’ video together. Make sure your sound is up! It’s a really vivacious […]

The power of blurred borders

I knew things had changed when a friend who works in international development posted Mark Parker’s response to Trump’s immigration ban to social media. Her statement said it all: ‘Never thought I would say this…But rock on Nike’. Yes, a former skeptic of the private sector had started to see that it can be a force for […]

A Catalyst for Change

It was November 2004, in Cape Town, and I was sitting in the congregation at my uncle’s memorial. My uncle was always a huge inspiration to me. He fought tirelessly against apartheid in the field of worker’s health, supporting trade unions in their battles for healthy workplaces, found himself sprayed with purple paint on one […]
