Speaker: Imelda Phadtare

Question: What does deeper thinking mean to you?

Deeper thinking relies on going beyond the obvious and business as usual approaches to problems combined with a high degree of engagement, consideration and pride.

It relies on active collaboration of multidisciplinary teams, talented project managers and seasoned critical analysts to identify existing and potential barriers and opportunities at the holistic through to sub-system levels.

It relies on understanding the inter-relationships and complexities between systems and to interrogate these further, to go deeper to root causes and to look for opportunities to break cycles or transform patterns to sustainable solutions that deliver co-benefits to multiple stakeholders.

Deeper thinking allows us to create critically informed and more sustainable blueprints for the future.
