Lou Mycroft has been working nomadically for several years now, guided by an ethics of joy.

She brings people together in community, to think, make efficient decisions and implement plans which change cultures.

She is a Thinking Environment facilitator, writer, public speaker and coach and translating this work to online spaces has been a revelation. She is co-founder of the #JoyFEL movement and its influential ‘Ideas Rooms’. She has particular strengths around creating spaces to think and the creation of effective, bespoke culture change programmes. She tries to be joyfully militant in everything she does.

She is very interested in wellbeing, particularly mental health, and developing personal agency (her first career was as a Public Health Specialist). She is a member of the @MHFECrowd and was the winner of the EduFuturists 2020 Staff Wellbeing Champion Award, even though she doesn't have a ‘staff’ or even a proper job.
