With only two more doors to open on our advent calendars, Kate Pickering takes a quick look at how social networking and collaborative consumption is changing the future of how we buy.
Kate, a former BBC producer has worked in broadcast, innovation and digital media for 14 years and is now a director of media140 having overseen a number of our UK events since 2009. She is currently developing future products and services for media140 worldwide.
I’m a great believer in the power of networks, of harnessing collective intelligence to benefit business and foster innovation. At a time of year when communities are perhaps a little tighter I gladly seize this example to demonstrate another way we can be strengthened by those around us.
Rachel explores how we are ‘born and bred to share and cooperate’. The advent of real-time technologies and rise of social networks have embraced this latent desire which is now fighting back and overcoming our urge to compete.
Packed with sharing and exchanging examples Rachel explains how Collaborative Consumption will transform business, consumerism and the way we live in this Ted Talk.
You too can find a way to exchange Series six of 24 for Sex and the City, or maybe just buy Rachel’s book for that final elusive gift.
