The Solvay Conference 1927
This image is remarkable in history, and represents the spirit of the Results 121 community. I wanted to invite great professionals to join a network that can lift one another by connecting, challenging and encouraging new thinking, innovation and finding solutions to the emerging (and ever changing) world we face in our organisations. I love it because of the story, and that the outcome was historically transformational. So why not imagine that by bringing the greats together, we can elevate the quality of our thinking, doing and enabling?
What happened at Solvay?
In 1927, the Solvay Congress in Brussels assembled 29 physicists. This photo captures the all-star line-up. Titans including Heisenberg, Einstein, Curie and Bohr.
Seventeen people in this photo won the Nobel Prize in Physics!
The extraordinary thing: many of these people won the Nobel Prize after the conference was held.
They didn’t get invited because they had won the Nobel Prize…..they won the Nobel Prize because they got invited.
People like us do things like this!
I love that they fought for one of the greatest scientific breakthroughs in history (quantum mechanics). They respected each other’s wisdom and experience, and challenged until they reached for something extraordinary. Its about what can happen if you maintain the quality of the attendees, and look for the exceptional in all of us.
