An exciting pilot of business skill sharing in live action trading led by Sophia Hubs
The Redbridge Timebank piloted some live action spontaneous skills trading in February. See who turns up and what skills they can offer… write them up on the board… see who is looking for some help with something…write that on the board… networking… decision time on the trades that will take place…. Timebank Team set up the room… and then an hour of trading. 🙂
The Timebank is an internationally recognised way of trading that values exchanges equally on time, not money. The HMRC know all about it and there’s no problem there. Sophia Hubs and Enterprise Desk led a Redbridge white paper discussion on the alternative economy in December and there was agreement that there are untapped resources for businesses in lean times.
Enterprise Exchange is offering its space on two Saturday afternoons, to try it out in the Central Library.
