Last night I attended Awesome Amsterdam as a trustee and ended up in a world full of positivity and great ideas to make Amsterdam more Awesome. Think about a glitter gun that makes that every once in a while a sparkling cloud can descend on everyone in Dam Square. Or a High-5-mile club, where runners wear a High-5-Mile wristband and can high five each other while passing in the Vondelpark. Or Traffic Light Charades. Waiting as a pedestrian at a traffic light is boring. Wouldn’t it be fun to play charades with other pedestrians who are waiting opposite you for the light to turn green?
Just some ideas that can make Amsterdam more awesome. The winner, in this case the Traffic Light Charades, won € 1.000 cash from the trustees and are going to implement their idea the coming Months.
But Awesome Amsterdam can of course easily be implemented at companies. People have always ideas how to make the company they work for more awesome.
Might be a nice idea to introduce this at the next quarterly meeting. Just ask people to pitch their ideas, every one in the company is part of the jury, and the winner can implement the idea. It can truly become a part of becoming more Awesome as a company. Who wants to try it out? And of course, you are welcome to visit the next Awesome Amsterdam event in January.
