Carolyn Tate Launches Slow School of Business

Exciting things are happening for Carolyn Tate who is about to launch ‘The Slow School of Business‘ (Slow School) via a Community Partnership with Hub Australia.

Carolyn Tate – The Slow School of Business

I met Carolyn when I first started at Hub Melbourne in late 2012. Since then we have gradually gotten to know each other a little more, although I think I still have a lot to learn about this deep thinking and inspiring woman.

Carolyn leads the Victorian Division of the global ‘Conscious Capitalism’ movement, and this will tell you that she is indeed a thinker.

Carolyn has described the Slow School as ‘an unconventional collaborative learning school for like-minded business people who share the common purpose to build a successful business that contributes to the elevation of humanity and the planet. We’re here to help you create a purpose-driven and prosperous business that makes a difference.’

You know what? I really like the sound of that. I think the world needs more of this kind of thinking.

Tonight Carolyn is running one of her trial (beta) Slow School classes. Three hours long on the topic of ‘Collaboration’. Obviously, given the purpose of www.coworkingiscool.com it will be a topic of great interest to me, so naturally I’ve booked in for this event. I will join 24 others for what will no doubt be a fascinating and thought provoking night. I am really looking forward to it.

I just had a quick chat to Carolyn in the Hub Melbourne kitchen and asked her to tell me her vision for the school, and this is what she said –

‘My vision is to create a tribe of 100-150 connected independents (solo professionals)
that come together to learn, connect and collaborate.’

The Slow School officially launches on 7 August 2014

It’s another case of watch this space.
