THE big ideas lab

Giving your ideas a voice

 A four-week lab for changemakers with a big idea worth sharing.


3rd October 2019

In person sessions: October 3, 10, 17, 24. 10am-1pm at JWS

(Applications open until September 6th)

Cultivating and communicating your ideas

You have ideas worth sharing.

Maybe you don’t have complete clarity on what the BIG idea looks like (yet), but you know there’s a message you believe in that needs to be heard.

You’re ready to roll your sleeves up and thrash. You’re ready to sprint. You’re ready to be the voice of change.

Specifically, you’re looking to create and deliver meaningful change that might take the shape of:

  • A keynote

  • A workshop

  • A course

  • All of the above

That’s why we created this Lab.

We got you.

And you got this.

Here’s how it’ll be structured

A four week workshop (both in-person and online) structured as follows:

  • In person:

    • 4 weekly 3 hour group sessions

  • Online:

    • 4 weekly 20-minute one-on-one coachings

  • Throughout:

    • 24/7 Community for coaching, accountability, feedback, celebrating and thrashing

    • Individual coaching and feedback from Pete and Jen

    • Resource sharing relevant to your project

    • A supportive community of like minded change makers in the arts

This is what you’ll walk away with…

  • An understanding of your BIG idea

Space is extremely limited.


This is the ONLY time this workshop will be offered at this price.

Your facilitators

Peter Shepherd (the long)

Pete is a periscope in the form of a human. Both literally at 6”7’ and figuratively in his work as a Coach, Speaker and Facilitator. He will help you see things you can't so that you can change your corner of the world.

Jen Waldman (the short)

Jen exists to help you express your point of view and take action so that you can lay your head on your pillow at night and say “I’m proud of what I did today. I showed up in service of the change I believe is possible.”

Together, they’re ridiculous and here to generously delight, challenge and serve you.
