Let’s put it all together- ready for Week 3!

My Recrear head is a Pandora box, and all the inputs that we received during the last two weeks have been feeding into it. The conference so far has provided me with the space to think about myself and the work I do at Recrear, to feel engrossed by the energy of my colleague, and […]

Living high and mightily with Recrear

As week two is coming to a close, I must say magnify just might be the perfect word to describe the change that I have seen within myself, my fellow conference delegates, and Recrear as a whole.  I believe this magnification will continue to happen so fluidly and progressively that by the end of next […]

“Ты не могла бы сегодня написать блог по-русски?” “Да…а зачем?” Действительно, зачем? Конечно, если я просто хорошо провожу отпуск, общаюсь с интересными, умными и целеустремленными людьми, трачу собственные деньги на весёлую жизнь, то нет особого смысла обращаться к русскоязычной публике.

Magnifying the perspective

Week 2 – Day 3 – Social Enterprise This is my first blog post ever so I’ll try to be brief and concise. A few months ago I joined Recrear as one of the three conference organizers for RecrearMagnify. Every single speaker we have had in week two has been phenomenal and expanded our minds […]
