We combine decades of experience in academia and industry to create solutions that help people to become better connected.


Our Mission

We are on a mission to create a better connected world, measured in terms of relevant and meaningful human connections.

We believe that too much faith has been placed in technology to connect us all. While technology can be a fantastic enabler, it is only when we come together as humans that the real magic happens and real value is created.

Better connected organisations perform better. Better connected individuals are happier, healthier and more prosperous.
— Peter Mandeno, Entrepreneur & Academic

Examples of what we've done or are doing

The Centre for Human Connectivity is the next step in a multi-disciplinary, multi-national global journey of projects and experiments in human connectivity.

Some of the highlights of that journey have been.

  • Wok+Wine: Launched in New York in 2010 as a way to connect people based on their mindset rather than their skill-set.
  • Maximum Return: A concept launched in New Zealand in 2016 to connect locals and visiting friends of NZ.
  • Serendipity Week: A city-wide, festival-type experience to help the people of London to venture to the edge of their comfort zones and discover new people, places and experiences right across the city.
  • Serendipity Sessions: A bespoke workshop format designed to help organisations create the space and time for valuable, unexpected insights.
