How did you learn about Art of Hosting (please add the date and place) and what attracted you to it?
At the Art of Participatory Leadership (AoPL) conference at Chateau de Bossey in 2012.
Tell us about your experience with Art of Hosting as part of your life and work. What would you say your competence in it is? (new, starting practitioner, experienced practitioner, steward)
I participated at the above mentioned AoPL conference twice - in 2012 and 2013. At the first conference I found one of my co-founders, Alexandra 'Santu' Boëthius, for creating Impact Hub Geneva. During this period, we also had an active 'AoH practice group' that met serveral times in order to apply and deepen our our knowledge of AoH and AoPL.
Thus at Impact Hub Geneva, these practices are present and are part of it, since it's beginning in 2014.
What is the primary field/topic/focus in your hosting work?
At Impact Hub Geneva*, hosting of our members-community, as well as of non-members is not only a key element of our value proposition to them, but also part of our culture to support each other in our endeavours.
