Point People The Point People build and connect networks because we think it’s the most effective way of making change happen.

The challenges we face today are so big and so complicated that individuals can’t solve them. They require us to work together in new ways. We believe that large-scale impact comes from connecting disparate worlds, from building new alliances, from co-ordinating action and from mobilising wisdom wherever it lies. So we connect communities; we share value; we build networks. We harness the power of folk who work across disciplines. We keep our ears to the ground. We open up the untapped potential of networks. We join the dots.

We know that working across diverse communities requires diverse leadership styles, and that’s why we are such a motley bunch of innovators, entrepreneurs, strategists, facilitators and artists. We’ve been commissioners, evaluators and recipients of funding. We’ve run big government programmes and started small social enterprises. We’ve led incubation programmes for young innovators and provided strategic support to senior executives. We’ve campaigned from the outside and reformed from the inside. Between us, we’ve been there.
