So what is a social disruption agency?
The social aspect is simply putting people first. It also represents our ability to connect, share and collaborate unlike any time before. The social aspect is our offerings built around community – be it connecting with or building one.
It is those new connections and focus on community that are leading to opportunities for disruption. We take those opportunities brought about by the disruptive changes occuring thanks to social media, new technologies and the accelerating rate of change at large and apply them to business models, new ways of thinking about your business’ purpose and how you engage your communities.
You can look at these times as scary and uncertain, or full of potential and opportunity. We are in the latter camp and we welcome you to join us.
Rob MacArthur is the founder of "a quiet revolution" (AQR). Having started a popular jam space (Coast's Best in 2011) as his first business, he followed his love of music further in starting an indie label exploring new ideas on how to present and brand music while embracing digital technologies and social media. Next he connected with Joanne, Sera and Tracy and co-founded Halifax's first co-working space, the Hub Halifax. Looking to explore new models of work, he believes co-working is the closest you can get to a real world LinkedIn. From there he shifted his focus back to music and helped launch Canada's first crowdfunding site for musicians (currently undergoing a redesign and relaunch as part of AQR and also incorporating the label in time).
He stepped away from his first “baby“ business to spend time with his real live baby; a beautiful, happy amazing little girl. When not busy with her or current ventures he is playing guitar/starting a band, reading graphic novels, writing or socializing with his also amazing friends. He has no complaints.
