world class presentations and anthrovation--

an innovative board game approach to workshops


world class presentations

 Robbie's a disrupter, motivator and transformer, Why? Because as a cultural anthropologist in business he's always got an eye on the gap between what people say they do (and want and need) versus what they really do (and want and need). You won't soon forget a Robbie presentation -- you'll laugh, you'll cry (quite possibly!), and you might just find yourself dancing on a table. 

This presentation is to 600 people at the Visit California conference in February of 2017

 

Getting a Robbie talk down to TED time and visual constraints was a good exercise! Here is Robbie presenting on the Pocket Anthropologist. Pocket Anthro is an app Robbie created to help students have a more immersive study abroad experience. 

 

Context decided to launch an ethnographic study of the Great Recession starting in the Fall of 2008. The result was an acclaimed report entitled Grounding the American Dream.

Anthrovation: A board game to to grow your cultural IQ and your Business

 Context created its own board game called Anthrovation for our workshops. In Anthrovation, you and your team are cultural anthropologists who explore three "time periods" -- where our culture is now, where it is headed, and how you want your "culture" (business) to look. Anthrovation workshops start with a presentation by Robbie in which you learn key cultural indicators which you then use in the board game.
