DESIGN THINKING WITH RENE TOMOVA:

In December 2014, we held a design thinking and creativity workshop with Rene Tomova and her team at Creative Shower, followed by our annual Christmas drinks.

The workshop was highly popular and quickly put a smile on every face in the room. The Creative Shower team led the participants through a fun practical task - rethinking and redesigning a common everyday object. The team also explained the stages of the creative process, involving alternating waves of divergent and convergent thinking. For the full duration of the workshop, the room was buzzing with excitement, new ideas, and creative energy.

The evening continued at our favorite bar Local, where we celebrated the upcoming holiday season.

JUDICIAL REFORM WITH H.E. AMBASSADOR VAN OORSCHOT:

In November 2014, we organised a lecture by H.E. the Dutch Ambassador to Bulgaria Mr. Tom van Oorschot, hosted kindly by the Information Centre of the European Parliament and sponsored by Carlsberg Bulgaria.

Ambassador Oorschot spoke about judicial reform and the Rule of Law and said that he believed in Bulgaria's potential to reform its justice system. He gave examples with other countries that have managed to pull through much more serious crises - such as South Africa, which turned around fully both its political and its justice system. But he said that responsible politicians are a prerequisite for that change - and that Bulgarian citizens should be more proactive and learn how to hold responsible the politicians they vote for.
