Event Details

David Meggitt and Christie Sarri 

Your presenters: David and Christie



Times are uncertain. Change is inevitable. Interdependence reigns.


Have you ever asked yourself the question: What, in collaboration with others, could I really achieve if only they could see the bigger picture and how they could contribute?

Or: Where specifically are my contributions hampered by lack of wider cooperation, coinvestment and adoption of my ideas?

And: What innovative idea could I bring to market if I could orchestrate a wider community of players to endorse it?

This workshop enables you to address questions such as these with renewed confidence that results can be achieved.

Creating any improvement in performance can involve shifts in roles, responsibilities, deliverables, relationships, processes, procedures, boundaries, needed capabilities and much more. Everything is interconnected, with a life of its own. Change one thing and the unexpected occurs elsewhere.

How can we discover, quickly, what to focus on and how to do it?

Usefully, the Value Exchange System (VES) approach helps people discover meaning and identity and the value of their contributions whatever their role in order to achieve change, growth and success. VES has matured into a tool to "restart" thinking about how organizations really work and boost value in people and performance at every level.

It does this by ignoring the superfluous and including all that is essential in a business, service or community model. This leads to energised performance in any domain, from business start ups to global corporations and public services, whether stay-as-you-are or undergoing transformation.

Although this intense light of understanding of how we really cooperate to create value for each other can blind bureaucrats, hierarchies and entrenched empires, by using your new VES lens you will illuminate the way forward for yourself and your colleagues

Enthusiasts will recognise that this is an exciting new reformulation of tools designed for use in the value network space – supporting management principles fit for the 21st century (2). 

Please note that this is not an alternative to traditional ways of leading and managing but a seamless adaptation to unlock potential.

Pre course materials will prepare you for an intensely active day which need not end there. Included is an opportunity to join and participate in a support community designed to cultivate co-creativity and the identification of pertinent applications of VES and complementary techniques.  

What you will cover includes:

  • the three essentials to construct a business model
  • where value is found in an organization and its assets
  • combining formal process with informal and social networks 
  • boundaries (open and closed)
  • appraising value exchanges in topical situations and business ecosystems
  • how to identify what and how your contribution can have most influence on success
  • simple diagrams to encourage conversation about innovation
  • exercise to practise VES
  • how your contribution directly impacts an economy 
  • energising a business model
  • links to complementary techniques that support 21st century management principles

What you will take away:

  • links to pdf's of all material covered
  • opportunity to join ongoing community 


Complimentary drinks and biscuits on arrival, and at morning and afternoon breaks

Cafeteria available for lunchtime break (cost not included) 

Who should attend? Whatever your role:

  • That 20% of people who are really active and engaged with their organizations
  • That 20% of people who are actively disengaged with their organizations
  • From the remaining 60%, those who could tip either way

In short, all those with an open mind on learning how new techniques can enhance their co-creation, collaboration and innovation capabilities within organizations.

Your presenters:

Both David Meggitt and Christie Sarri are Chartered Civil Engineers and Partners in Meggitt Bird LLP. Additionally:

David, having commenced his career in civil engineering developed to be a management consultant, business advisor and entrepreneur and is an alumnus of PA International Management Consultants and Planning Research Corporation. Focused on value co-creation and innovation he encourages the transformation of conventional mind sets to think differently using toolkits and techniques acquired through his multinational assignments and research in solving "wicked" problems. He was a co-founder and director of 3Cs Community Ltd, a company leading a pioneering entrepreneur and intrapreneur network in the UK. In 2006, in recognition of his expertise with value networks, he was awarded Certified Practitioner status. 

Christie devoted her first 10 years in civil engineering to working with prestige worldwide firms and continues to engineer the future with technologically enhanced materials. With the completion of her MBA studies at Warwick Business School, majoring on innovation, she helps people and businesses to "make their ideas happen" in the UK and Greece. Mapping problems and evaluating businesses prior to leading them to an innovative growth strategy are her main impact areas. She also runs her own engineering consultancy and pom - coworking place in Greece.   

(1) Christie first presented a VES outline to an academic / practitioner audience at UC Berkeley USA in 2012 in the first open innovation workshop incorporating the Business Model Canvas conducted by Prof Henry Chesbrough. 

(2) Enthusiasts may also be familiar with the presenters' co-authored paper (along with Dr. Lilly Evans) published in the flagship journal of the Institution of Civil Engineers - Civil Engineering - which introduced "value network" to that profession in May 2012.  

(3) Questions are based on those first posed by Jamed E Moore in 1996 "The death of competition."
