Every human being matters.


Deep down each of us has big ideas about which we are passionate, which inspire us, which are the sparkling jewel at the centre of our sense of self – a bit like a diamond.

Trouble is this diamond can lie hidden: covered by layers of routine, duties at home and at work – everyday stuff that clouds our vision and saps our energy.

In nature diamonds form far underground in conditions of extreme pressure and heat. In these rocks they are way too deep to be mined by people but then along comes magma – molten rock that wells up from close to the earths core and forcing its way up towards the surface. Sometimes it erupts through volcanos and sometimes it doesn’t get that far and cools while still underground.

As it flows, the magma passes through the deep diamond fields, picking up gem rich rock and then depositing it in kimberlite pipes. From here the diamonds can be mined, refined and shined – something that wouldn’t have been possible without the effect of the magma.

Our Magma Effect™ works rather like that. We create opportunities, conversations and activities that connect with the values hidden deep inside people and surface them to a level from which any one with a mind to can define, refine and shine these very personal drivers of meaning and motivation. The process makes people more “value able” and in turn, potentially more valuable both to themselves and their peers.

If you are of a mind to mine for your values we recommend leading values profiling tool the Minessence Values Inventory. It will take you at least 30 minutes to work through all 128 possible values and arrive at the core of what matters most to you right now. Profile reports start from GBP £25.

I've just signed @friends_earth's open letter asking Prince Charles' Duchy of Cornwall and the Church Commissioners to grow more trees on their land to tackle the nature and #ClimateCrisis. Will you add your name too? #woodland https://act.friendsoftheearth.uk/petition/ask-prince-charles-and-church-grow-more-trees

Been thinking a lot about this.

Are we really saying we’re all comfortable with giving the highest-paid £50 off their restaurant bills but not giving the lowest-paid any access to statutory sick pay nor help to self-isolate?

Don’t know about you but I’m not.

Since Johnson won't, Sturgeon now speaks for the UK. A COVID elimination strategy has to be a four nations strategy, unless we want to create internal barriers to movement. The PM is holding us all back and (ironically, given his professed intentions) acting to break up Britain. https://twitter.com/devisridhar/status/1290621343055130630

Scottish press briefing: FM Sturgeon pushing for a 4 nation (England, Scotland, Wales, N.Ireland) agreement on COVID-19 ‘elimination’ strategy to stop community transmission, drive #s low & have strongest basis to rebuild economy. @GabrielScally

I am looking for businesses doing something really unusual during covid, maybe to support staff or customers, or build back. Hard to describe what I am looking for - I want to be surprised. Get in touch if you're doing something genuinely new and thanks in advance #journorequest
