This session is exclusively for businesses – if you would like to book a space, or for more information on the application of Street Wisdom for Business, please email rachel.crowther@streetwisdom.org

Join us on 18th April from 2-5pm in Spitalfields, London to experience the Street Wisdom approach and learn how your organisation can access new insights and find innovative ideas from the city streets. This free taster session will be led by Street Wisdom founder, best-selling author and internationally renowned speaker David Pearl. It will be a small, curated group for invited guests from the business world. The sessions enable participants to adopt our approach and the principles of mindfulness into their daily lives. Not only can the sessions be incredibly powerful but the group leave with an accessible way of taking time out of their hectic schedules, to find some headspace on a regular basis.

 Street Wisdom is a powerful, innovative tool that helps reboot thinking, set new directions and unlock ideas, it has been used to enhance training & leadership skills; during board meetings & away days; boost customer & staff engagement in retail stores; as inspiration for the creative industries; by CEOs seeking a breathing space – and by individuals around the globe as a powerful personal tool.  An immersive walking workshop that teaches individuals to use your urban environment to find fresh answers to the questions on their mind. Street Wisdom is already a global social enterprise popular in over 30 countries and is also transforming the thinking of organisations including GoogleLushSamsung and Ogilvy & Mather.  To learn more about Street Wisdom for Business, please visit our website where you can read case studies and watch David’s TED Talk.

What is it? At the centre of Street Wisdom lies the idea that every moment is extraordinary and every street is full of inspiration – that there’s no such thing as an ordinary street, just ordinary thinking. Few of us give ourselves time or permission to really focus on the signs and signals that we normally ignore, rich stimulus that can help us learn something new.

Street Wisdom takes place in three parts. First, a street guide helps you tune up your senses so you can pick up far richer information from the environment that you would normally. Then you’re off on a journey by yourself – your street quest – where you ask a question and see what answers present themselves. You don’t have to go far but it’s amazing what you can learn. In the final 60 minute session everyone gathers together to share what happened and, more often than not, wonder at how magical an ordinary street can become when you’re really aware of those hidden messages, chance meetings and unexpected discoveries.

In just three hours of walking and wandering, participants have resolved problems that have dogged them for years, found new business ideas, changed careers, discovered new directions, and learned how to deal differently with life and love.

Invented by creative maestro David Pearl in 2013 and developed with the help of business beatnik and fellow author Chris Baréz-Brown, Street Wisdom has rapidly grown into a global movement. Our mission is to make every street in every city a free source of inspiration for everyone, every single day.

Who is it for? It is relevant for anyone struggling with the day-to-day personal stuff, tackling a challenge in the workplace, figuring out what’s next, or seeking a creative breakthrough. Once experienced, it can be easily replicated on a personal basis, or taken into the workplace and used to inspire teams and colleagues.

What do you bring? An open mind, good walking shoes and clothes for all weather. A question you’d like answered: not too big (‘What is the meaning of life?’), not too small (‘What shall I have for lunch?’) but somewhere in the middle – a burning issue to which you’d like fresh answers.
