A shorter than usual newsletter - my brain is slightly addled recently. So briefly I would like you to consider a key component to developing change.....Trust.

Do you have it embedded in your organisational & business relationships?

Can you demonstrate it in everything you do?

In Reboundog it is the first of our 3 Values ( see previous newsletter Creating Resilience in Social Impact Ecosystems without Treehugging & Yogababble. (

It showed up in this podcast interview

The working definition of Wirearchy is “a dynamic two-way flow of  power and authority, based on knowledge, trust, credibility and a focus on generating value, enabled by interconnected people and technology”. Thriving in the wirearchy: Networks Trailblazers Jon Husband and Harold Jarche — We Need Social - Engagement Leadership & Change

I'm sure I heard it mentioned in the other podcast I listened to this week

“Viable System Model” expert Mark Lambertz joins us on today’s podcast to help us unfold organizing in complex ecosystems. #102 - Decoding the Viable System Model with Mark Lambertz - Boundaryless

I can see it as a necessary component of Reboundog member Tom Van Winkle's blog:

Don't just be ready for investment, be ready to win it! In the world of angel investing, understanding the power dynamic between you and potential backers is key. Knowing when to approach them is important, but so is capitalising on your power position as the entrepreneur offering a high-growth investment opportunity. In today’s Reboundog Sofa chat, we’ll discuss this equation.

Aisha's career began in the heart of London's angel investor scene, where she honed her expertise in business growth and liquidity strategies. This experience transitioned seamlessly into commercial banking, where she directly supported businesses in achieving their financial goals. This journey equipped Aisha with an unparalleled understanding of the entire business financing landscape, from venture capital to traditional commercial finance.
