training services to the business and education markets. We aim to assist
organisations to manage change efffectively by applying systems thinking

learning. HPO has an association with HPS Inc in the United States.

We are the directors of HPO and have spent most of our professional
careers practising change consulting. Our pen pictures appear at the end
of this message.

We are curious about most things - at the moment we would love to learn
about experiences people have had with respect to introducing systems
thinking into the process of educating children.

We look forward to meeting new points of view and participating in the
conversations which take place among the LO subscribers.
