Timbo Talks...

Hello, I'm Timbo... a writer, photographer and podcaster from Sydney, Australia. This is my podcast where I talk about anything to do with work and play – nature, travel, politics, philosophy, social media, technology and psychology.

“When you have a creative mind, you are never bored.” My podcast guest, Oscar Venhuis dropped that gem in our conversation. Oscar is the CEO of EQ Lab in Hong Kong and he is deeply interested in “extending the intelligence” of organizations. Oscar and I talk about the great mystery that is creativity. We also discuss how organizations fool themselves when they claim to build diversity while pursuing consensus above all else.
