“… a proven stimulus of innovation —  the meeting of unlike minds.”
Thomas Stewart, 2001

Who we are.

Unlike Minds was established in 2008 by the founding directors David Dickinson and David Oliver.

It is a capability network whose associates are at the leading edge of social change thinking. As our name suggests, our strength is in the diversity of the exceptionally experienced professionals, each recognised as leaders in our respective fields. We come together to address complex problems with creative and elegant solutions.

How we work.

Where we are like-minded is in our commitment to our way of working, outlined in our Statement of Common Ground. We are also like-minded in meeting our threefold ambitions:

  1.  to make a big difference for people and their communities;
  2.  to have fun doing it;
  3.  to earn sufficient to sustain 1. and 2.

Most of our associates have full time roles, for example as general practitioners, chief executives officers, systems architects. Their hugely important role is to inform the thinking of those associates with more executive functions.

Our Focus.

Our primary focus is on health and wellbeing information, on learning and teaching, and on citizenship, and how these naturally come together to help people make better meaning to support a sense of coherence.

Our branding and logo.

The Unlike Minds branding and the logo are both significant. While it’s easy to surmise the inspiration behind the name from the quotation at the top of each web page, the relevance of the geometrical device may be less apparent. If it’s of interest, you can find an explanation here.
