Zapien is the makings of a grassroots community and think-thank for divergent skilled practitioners who admit that the complex societal and commercial problems that need solving as far bigger than the solutions that anyone discipline can provide. We are driven by a desire to ask what would happen if skilled practitioners from divergent spheres came together to explore & solve societal and commercial problems worth questioning?
The status quo says it’s a race to sell an answer, but those of us who have played by these rules know that simply selling an answer doesn’t lead to delivering long-term value. There needs to be another approach and a new monopolized approach isn’t the answer either.
This just happens to be our approach.
For now, we take shape as a website designed to house these free-to-air conversations and innovations, but who knows what we’ll be in the future.
We exist for professionals and consultants who are done with playing the corporate salesy game of posturing as if our individual skillsets have all the answers to a client's needs.
We provide a community for a cross-section of skilled professionals from divergent industries to tackle these types of questions together, with an outcome-driven approach.
We’re not a network marketing group, a movement, or an industry association.
We’re in the business delivering perspectives and approaches to frustrated yet curious individuals to test, fail, iterate, and test again in their own contexts and spheres.
We don’t have a study, a New York Times best-selling book, a trademarked approach, a TED Talk, or Podcast. All we have right now is our experiences, our skillsets, and our crazy obsession with what could be if skilled practitioners from different spheres came together to explore societal and commercial problems worth questioning?
This is the makings of something...and we’re fine with not knowing exactly what that is yet.
So here’s not having all the answers and being willing to admit it anyway.
