Lou Mycroft has been working nomadically for several years now, guided by an ethics of joy.
She brings people together in community, to think, make decisions and implement plans which change cultures, choosing work based on Nesta UK’s 2018 definition of Good Help:
“…enabling people to feel hopeful, identify their own purpose and confidently take action.”
She is a Thinking Environment facilitator, writer, public speaker and coach and her work translates well to online spaces. She is co-founder of the #JoyFE💛 movement and its influential ‘Ideas Rooms’. She has particular strengths around engagement, digital resilience and the creation of effective, bespoke culture change programmes. She tries to be joyfully militant in everything she does.
She is very interested in wellbeing, particularly mental health and developing personal agency (her first career was as a Public Health Specialist). She is a member of the @MHFECrowd and is currently developing new thinking around health, wellbeing and empowerment, particularly for women.
She has been nominated for an EduFuturist 2020 Award as a Staff Wellbeing Champion, even though she doesnt have a ‘staff’.
