SLADE Samantha_1

Samantha is a collective business leader and Art of Hosting practitioner dedicated to developing capacity for the future of work and the future of cities. With a background in anthropology, Samantha has been growing collaborative practices for two decades, be it between national administrations of the European Union, between city employees and citizens or between business teams. Ten years ago she cofounded two social businesses -- Percolab, an international company strengthening organisational culture and innovation and Ecto, a thriving co-working coop in Montreal, Canada.  Both organisations are experimental fields for new operational ways, from collaborative general assemblies to self-managing compensation models. Samantha believes that organisations can be a microcosm of the world we want to live in.
