TWIRL – The Wolverhampton Integrated Respiratory Lifestyle


This is one (of seven) of the offspring that emerged from the successful Coventry RIPPLE Project. The Press release from 2016 can be found here.

I facilitated the ‘Launch’ workshop at the Wolverhampton Racecourse back in February 2016, which brought together as wide a range of interested groups as we could. Instead of directly copying the use of a church hall as hosting location we looked at the assets we had and, fairly obviously, but not at that time guaranteed, the Wolves Football Club, Molineux Stadium was suggested, and so it came to be.

This was one of the first ‘social based’ workshops where I successfully introduced the Oxford Creativity – TRIZ Nine Box Thinking method. The use of scale (Individual – Community – Society) and time (Before diagnosis – After Diagnosis – Later) worked particularly well in exploring and generating creative ideas.

I love the way each project is creating its own identity and acronym, TWIRL is great, whilst building on the assets that they have rather than forcing a structure and rules on each other.

Pictures above are taken from the Output Report produced after the workshop.
