Our friend Nic Mepham, the creative agent from Kajaani Finland, also working for Intotalo Kajaani came by Jyväskylä this last Thursday. As he arrived in the evening he said that he has an intuition that we should go and visit Team Academy: ”Maybe someone is there.” So I saw the bike of Petrus outside and I thought he was probably working on Team Mastery Arena but we found out that he was there for a training session of his new rhythm and poet orchestra Mahtavaa Tennistä (Amazing Tennis in English). He was there with a guitar and Nic wanted to participate. This is the result!
Quite amazing, isn’t it?
Nic also taught me (Ville) a little about how to sing blues, and we got into a deep dialogue about creativity, courage and coffee. Those three C’s are Nic’s thing. Aki of Spym was challenged about his thing and Petrus was encouraged to play his own songs. I think that’s what we should all do. Just as William Isaacs in his book Dialogue and the Art of Thinking Together tells a story about one piano playing consultant who is being asked: ”Who plays your music if you don’t do it yourself?”
