Phoebe Tickell is a London–based Member of the Enspiral Network, a global collective of D.I.Y. social entrepreneurs and freelancers, tempting people away from their regular jobs since 2011. Enspiral is a highly autonomous, decentralised, self-managed and global networked organisation – a fertile ground for experimenting with the future of work. Phoebe is a renegade scientist, who started her life as a genetic networks engineer at Cambridge University and Imperial College London, and moved into human networks. She is a series systems entrepreneur and teaches at Schumacher College, Totnes, a university built on the principles of deep ecology, on the topics of symbiosis, co-evolution, cooperation and networks.
