What’s a Meddle?
Each Meddle is a unique gathering of brilliant people, invited to come together and tackle a specific issue. This is chosen by the first person we invite – the Middle Meddler, as we call them.
The issue can be anything, in any field, on any scale. It might be a negative issue we want to help people overcome. Or something positive we’d like to see more widely promoted and embraced.
Once the topic is fixed, we start to gather more names: smart influential people keenly interested in the topic, who enjoy collaborative problem-solving. (Or, as we call it – Meddling.
The aim of each Meddle is to conceive, develop and present something that ‘moves the needle’ on the chosen issue. It might be a website or a white paper. It might be a product prototype. It might be a schools roadshow. Who knows? Each group of meddlers sets their own goal.
As of March 15, 2014, Meddle is now part of Sugarmapl.es.
Our very first Meddle took place at the 15th-Century estate, Temple Guiting Manor, in the beautiful Cotswolds. We worked on a new way to help people get their personal ‘passion projects’ off the ground.
