Director Biography - Shereen Amos

I support transformative strategic conversation around innovative thinking and shared futures. This includes strategic thinking support and planning, on-camera stakeholder research, the creation of thought-provoking content, and the development of engagement mechanisms across all media platforms, as well as the curation and production of concept experiences and bespoke conferences.

I conceptualise, direct, and produce larger contextual projects for sponsorship by clients. These projects provide provocative content for clients to initiate more expansive conversations. re-story.world is my latest on-camera research project of this nature (https://vimeo.com/491069751). Here I spoke to South Africans about life in COVID-19 times. re-story.world presents a compelling reflection of this extraordinary moment in history and calls for regenerative thinking to co-create a more compassionate world.

The Incredible Curious Global Adventure, a global on-camera research project commissioned by Gen Re, inspired my MPhil Inclusive Innovation dissertation and the evolution of my work and innovation focus (https://vimeo.com/235313449). For this project, I travelled to 7 countries and interviewed some 70 people to bring home a thought-provoking story about disruptive innovation and a fast-changing world. I also produced a series of podcasts and directed and produced the interactive conference at which this documentary was launched.
