About the Brussels Imagination Club
The Imagination Club was established by Andy Whittle (left) and Jeffrey Baumgartner (right) so long ago that neither one of them can remember exactly when it all started, though it might have been 2006.
Andy is an Englishman abroad. He has a creative side and loves to put this into practice whenever he can. As co-organiser of the Imagination Club in Brussels, he can often be found in the throes of discovery and experimentation. Nothing shocks Andy thanks to his years of experience as a trainer, facilitator and host.
Jeffrey is the author of the science fiction-humour novel, The Insane Journey, and the quirky business book, The Way of the Innovation Master. He also writes the very silly Baumgartner Report newsletter as well as the rather more serious Report 103 newsletter. When not writing, he speaks and does workshops for businesses, governments and non-profits in Europe, North America, Africa, The Middle-East and Asia. And, of course, he manages the Imagination Club with Andy. His web site is at jpb.com.
Their aim for the Imagination Club is to provide a safe place for facilitators to try out new things, whether it is facilitation, a new theme or a new approach. As a result, it is also a place where people in the international community of Brussels can come, learn new things and meet new people. Our membership of some 300 people includes people from dozens of countries.
The Imagination Club is an open source concept, which means that if you want to set up your own imagination club for your community, you are free to do so without worrying about royalty fees, intellectual property or other unpleasantness. What's more, Jeffrey and Andy would be delighted to help you get started and promote your group here on the web site.
Indeed, there are already imagination clubs in Europe and Australia -- and each has its own style.
