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 IT consultant and trainer with lots of experience with Toyota, the Belgian government and the European commission. He's also passionate about facilitation.
Jeffrey is an author and facilitator who specialises in anticonventional thinking - a new approach to creativity. He has done anticonventional thinking workshops with businesses and governments in North America, Europe, the Middle East and Asia. He has also written The Way of the Innovation Master. His web site is here.
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.
