Now including a career in theater, Brad plays "Bucky" in a one-man play about the life and work of R. Buckminster Fuller. Offered as a free standing theater-based performance or as an integrated corporate training and teambuilding opportunity, "BUCKY" is designed to reintroduce the audience to the man who has been rightly called "the 20th century's Leonardo da Vinci".
Through the most powerful universal principles that Buckminster Fuller discovered and utilized during his lifetime, namely, Synergy, Precession, Ephemeralization, and Acceleration of Acceleration, we can explain and predict some of the fastest mutating, richest and most inclusive patterns of behaviors operating throughout the universe. Learning and applying Bucky’s principles enables us to move forward with extraordinary innovation, creativity, speed and integrity.
Mastering these concepts and then enrolling others in learning and applying these principles will facilitate our understanding of how to:
Because Fuller’s principles are both inclusionary and cross-disciplinary in their applications, understanding them enables executives to better navigate the seemingly chart less waters of complexity and constant change.
Armstrong and Alice Wilson have joined to create three business training workshops that use "BUCKY" as a catalyst. Participants and their guests, spouses, etc., if desired, first see the production, and then the participants attend a one, or two-day team building training or the one-day corporate creativity seminar. The trainings and seminars are predominantly experiential, and highly interactive exploring Bucky’s principles with models and exercises that immerse participants the concepts thereby transforming the way in which they look at the world, their lives, and their abilities to make a significant difference in their enterprises.
The culminating feature of the two-day teambuilding is the construction of a geodesic dome on an elementary school playground or other appropriate location of the sponsor’s choice. The dome will provide the enterprise with community recognition, if desired, and will remain, for the participants, as a lasting artifact of the training, teambuilding and great learning experience. Of course, as a contribution to the sponsor’s community, the Dome will be forever a reminder to all of the organization’s commitment to the local culture, schools or population.
