Circle of inspiration

Creating an inspiring atmosphere

By invitation only.

Conferences or get-togethers with hundreds of people can be overwhelming. How can you ensure that a speaker will address your personal needs, especially when interaction is impossible? Throughout my career, I found the most inspiration through personal encounters with fascinating people from different fields. The translation of this discovery is meeting the right people in the right context. Nothing other than this I offer in the Circle of Inspiration, the last one of which took place in Zurich on the 26th of November.

A selected group of leaders and artists from various fields were invited to enjoy the salon-like atmosphere of a surprising location: in the private atelier of a young, yet well-known chef, in Zurich, the guests experienced an inspiring dinner with a special “sensory highlight”.

What differentiates the Circle from a normal dinner invitation?

Most importantly, the Circle of Inspiration takes place in a private environment that I carefully curate for that night. Curation means that we create a unique experience that sharpens sensory awareness by choosing even the minutest detail consciously. On the last occasion we took the guests on a well-prepared journey of taste: my great partners in culinary experiences, Patrick Schindler and Luca Tribò helped me with the curation from the perfect harmony of the menu with the wine selection to the general atmosphere of the venue.

However, curation extends beyond refining the details of the dinner. It is no coincidence at all, who gets an invitation to the Circle: personal connections can only flourish between people who match in personal qualities and interests. Guests are chosen carefully, based on their background and personality (beyond job titles), creating a fertile ground for fruitful discussions and meaningful relationships. Therefore, an invitation means that guests can trust that they will have an enriching experience.

“It should become natural:
to stimulate our senses to change the world”

The Circle of Inspiration is a framework in which inspiring conversations can flourish and the members can receive impulses instantly. On the occasion of the one-year anniversary of Zero Senses, I have illustrated with a recent example how my approach of curated inspiration works in practice. Yet, while I only provide the framework, the real impulses are given by everyone else who is part of the Circle.
Essentially, the idea behind the format is rooted in the everlasting need to find the right source of inspiration: I create an atmosphere where inspiration can flow in abundance. The Circle is a condensed version of what I offer in the Zero Senses Retreat Cultivating Presence, where only ten natural leaders will come together from various fields to receive inspiring impulses in the heart of the Swiss Alps in March 2020.

The basic structure of the Zero Senses Method is always the same, it only varies in intensity, time, and degree of individuality. The method can be experienced in different ways.

Ultimately, through sharpening sensory awareness one gain more clarity in business decisions.
