The most extraordinary creative work is the result of collaboration, challenge and downright combat. It’s hot, sweaty business against opponents who don’t always play fair. And what shifts something from good to great is often not what you’d expect. So how do you get your agency in the right mode for tag-team awesomeness and equip them with the moves to win, even when you hit the ropes?

The overriding culture in economics, business and policy-making focuses on a drive for objective improvements in efficiency. The problem is that, as humans, we do not care about efficiency very much at all: what we care about is meaning. And the glorious thing about meaning is that it isn't produced in smoky factories – it's produced in the mind.

17:45 WRAP UP / Alex Jenkins
