Independent Minds, Expert Ideas (2020)

When we met a year ago with international colleagues and friends and talked about the transformations of our time, the idea of writing a book together was born. 

We never thought that one year later we would experience such strong changes in the world. Covid 19 hit the world and brought it to a halt. It is a great book, with many tips and perspectives on the topic of change, a truly international perspective of authors from Australia, South Africa, Namibia, United Kingdom, Netherlands and Germany. 

With excellent articles from my fellow co-authors Paul ter Wal, Ilja Gee, Ogopoleng Mushi, Chris Davidson, Lindsay Adams, Rebecca Jones, Laura Baxter, Siegfried Lange.
