We are coming off of the holiday weekend (via seaplanes from the west and boats on the fjord in the east) into a week of heads-down client work in our studios in New York and Richmond. KMB and SW will pop up to DC for a day and, when they’re not in meetings, will be working out of Canvas, the largest co-working space in the city. On Wednesday we are thrilled to host the 25 entrepreneurs that comprise the 2015 Mandela Washington Fellowship for Young African Leaders. This group of entrepreneurs is traveling to the US from 21 different countries across Africa to meet with various industry leaders and professionals, and we are honored to have been chosen as one such company. While it is almost guaranteed that we learn more from them, than they from us, we are looking forward to conversations that will be advantageous and inspiring.
It’s official. We’re partnering with Inc magazine to bring you stories and insight from the front lines of real business. Our new column “Field Notes from the Leading Edge” starts this week, with articles from our team and our friends and allies. Every week, we’ll publish a new piece that throws light on a better practice, a fresh idea, or different way of approaching the fundamental work of good business. You’ll find the links here as new articles are published, or sign up for our mailing list and be the first to receive new material.
