“Resilience, creativity, and innovation: the common link”
“Resilience” is a topic that has garnered interest in recent years, often paired with the narrative of our unified stance in the face of the pandemic; however, it is nothing new for Space Bangkok. To them, resilience has always been a key part in our everyday lives and in the work that we do, right alongside our capabilities to be creative and innovate, but how are these things connected? Find out on our fireside chat with Jenn Weidman, founder and CEO of Space Bangkok, a social venture that helps those addressing the biggest problems do their work.
Jenn Weidman, founder and CEO of Space Bangkok, is a facilitation, training, resilience, and peacebuilding professional with over 18 years’ experience working on peace and capacity building programs in Thailand and Southeast Asia.

The conversation with Jenn Weidman, founder, and CEO of Space Bangkok, has shed some much-needed light on topics that are not often discussed but are widely experienced by people from all walks of life. Sustainability of the self is still sustainability.
