    Knowmads Business School Amsterdam is a place where entrepreneurial behaviour starts with the person. Who are you, what is your dream, what do you want to bring into the world or what do you want to change. In your world or the world around you. From that starting point, together as a tribe, we decide what we need to learn. Based on the idea head (knowledge), heart (feeling) and hands (action) we get in workshops we need as a group and as individuals to work on our own projects or on assignments of companies. By doing so we work together, co-create together, and make use of what is there (in the different, international young professionals between 20 and 35 year old) and make our own program and planning. Everybody has a passion for something. What we try to find out what is their passion burning for, and we facilitate, empower and enable these young people to shine and make things happen

    Yes! We want to contribute to make the world better. Our intention is to equip people with our transformation and leadership approach as much as possible, so we can all together make world and life better and to use it in any social field of application each of us feel called to. For us the calling is on 3 main fields: 1) our own human transformation and development 2) organization transformation for a more humanized and meaningful working environment 3) society transformation through community art for a more inclusive, caring, open to dialogue society, especially for people who are at the margins and youth leadership. Here some of our current pro-bono social projects

    Pulau Ubin & Living Fisher village

    Community Art

    Time spent at hospital can be very stressful and sad. We think art can help and we participate to community art activities organized by our partner Artsolute (www.artsolute.asia.com). Every Saturday patients are involved in art activity. This helps them to release stress, spend meaningfully their time, socialize, feeling cared, bond with their family, become more independent and increase their self-hestime. This project aims to be a first prototype for further application in Singapore Health System

    Ulab Singapore Hub

    Build leadership and community for transformation

    We live in a time of disruptive change. How to activate our capacity to lean into the emerging future may well be the most important leadership challenge of our time. How do we cultivate curiosity, compassion and courage in the face of prejudice, anger and fear?
    MIT developed a method called Theory U, for leading such change in business, government, and civil society contexts worldwide.
    many hubs around the world are born to promote social change and new way of leading using this approach. Singapore Hub is one of them and we want give our contribution to a better world promoting initiatives of social change.
    We are a Growing Community creating awareness-based social technologies for change makers around the world. @Marco Polo Consulting we are helping to co-lead this group and we support facilitating sessions of learning on U theory. The aim of this group is to: Keep learning and practicing together the theory U
    Promote the knowledge of theory U in order to create a positive movement of people driving change for the common good; Prototype individually or together actions to make our society better, based on personal and collective interests. Share with like minded people experiences, issues, learning and grow together. To know more: https://www.facebook.com/groups/ULabSGHub/
