To whom are we selling? #tuttleconsult

We’ve been round this one before for consulting, soon after we did the work with the British Council.  Where I think we got was that we needed to pitch it to lots of people, take it round and refine the pitch.

Our Fridays are full of conversations making sense of new waves of technology.  We have people who can talk with authority about pretty much any subject.  But we’re also good generalists many of whom have worked in big organisations.  We’re not unsympathetic to the realities of corporate life, but we step firmly outside it. We can really help people who are stuck, who are struggling with thriving in a networked world, who know they need to change but don’t quite know how and could do with some help experimenting with new ways of working and new ways of being in work.  We can also help people who know that they need exposure to people who are comfortable on the edge – we can be “rent-a-freak” for those people whose networks are getting stale or have been talking to the usual suspects for too long.

We have a (still) unusual engagement model, where we take the simplest of briefs and bring the Tuttle experience to you to talk it over, refine it and turn it into productive projects.

So who can we go and see?  Who have you been talking to lately who could do with an intervention?  Who could benefit from a visit from the friends of Harry Tuttle?

From The Archive: No Hunting Like Snowhunting (2006) with @debbiedavies

Once upon a time, early in 2006, I sat on the floor in Debbie Davies’s flat in Dolphin Square, cradling a cup of tea and explaining to her that I wanted to start a videoblog and that I thought she should be in it too.  I explained what it would entail, that we’d make a video and put it on the internet and then we’d see what happened.  She thought I was a bit mad but then, she’s a bit mad too so she said yes.

Well this was the first.  It hasn’t been seen for a while because it was too early for YouTube and I stopped paying for the hosting it was on.  Wait… Too early for YouTube? Yes, I think I had an account, but there was an upload limit (10MB?) and this wouldn’t fit.  So the next in the series “Desperately Seeking Harvey” ended up being my first video on YouTube.  And now the kids think they invented this kind of vlogging in 2009…

We were also too early for Twitter and Facebook, so unless you were subscribing to my blog at the time, it’s unlikely you’ve seen it either.  A lost classic…

In summary, the plot is this: Lloyd & Debbie hear that there’s snow forecast north of London and so get in Debbie’s car to drive until they find snow at which point they’ll make a snowman and go home.  Little do they know just how far away the snow is…
