we create connection, belonging and aliveness through the integration of film-making with Organisational Development.
Organisations know that growth can only be delivered by their people, yet may struggle to overcome inertia to change, and find that individuals and teams play smaller parts than they could… meus creates, captures and communicates transformational moments of connection, breaking through this change resistance.
Our values of creativity, collaboration and compassion inform all that we do, and stand out as hallmarks of our approach. Most of all, we aim to work with integrity – to be genuine and to inspire trust as people and as professionals.
we create on-camera learning experiences that liberate leadership, catalyse change & transform communication
We design and deliver unique learning experiences, that blend systemic Organisational Development practices with our pioneering approach to film-making.
The films that we create are more than simple records of breakthrough – they explore ‘living moments’ that connect us more fully to ourselves and to one another. Our films make it possible to share these moments more widely, creating a transformative power in and through your organisation.

we pioneer the art of organisational development through film
Nobody works in the way that we do! We are not a production company - we are coaches, consultants and facilitators who understand the power of 'moving images' to bridge the space between leadership, change and communication.
Our approach is grounded in the principles of collaborative culture change, and draws on systemic coaching, constellations and dialogue methodologies, combined with experiential learning.
Our films are not bolt-ons to our Organisational Development work, but an integral part of how we design and deliver experiences in a digital age for a rapidly changing workforce.
In partnership with you, we co-design and deliver solutions that accelerate leadership and team development; build employee engagement; and enable a working culture where feedback and agility are aligned.

we spark your personal and organisational transformation
Our open-access learning and development workshops are experiential, practical and participative. They equip professionals from client organisations, as well as independent coaches and consultants, with new tools and techniques, and fresh perspectives that make a tangible difference.
Through our film-based, online learning resources we share our underpinning philosophy of systemic change, distributed leadership and creative dialogue. They provide an affordable, flexible and convenient way to enhance your practice with the latest thinking from the field of Organisational Development.
our job is to unleash the power of individual stories to connect us and transform our collective human experience
Our approach to Organisational Development bridges the space between leadership, communication and change, through film.
For us, film is the integrative medium of our work. Film enables us to tell stories that inform, inspire and engage – and so ignite learning, leadership and change at all levels. Through film, we create content that makes a deep impact and communicates virally.
Our community of facilitators, coaches and consultants, camera technicians and editors, educators and artists ensure we bring diversity and creativity to all our projects.

Jon is a Director of meus. His ability to create secure physical and emotional spaces in which people can explore their creativity has been a key component of his whole professional life. This passion has translated into his film-making, enabling those he works with to stretch their creative muscle, and express themselves in surprising and different ways. His adventurous spirit has taken him all over the world – riding motorcycles through Africa, climbing in the Himalaya and venturing underground on several pioneering caving expeditions to China.
Jon is an explorer and an optimist at heart. He developed his professional expertise as a systemic coach, facilitator and film-maker by following his passion in many different directions; he imagines that one day he might follow a more structured approach to his career! In life so far he has had multiple identities - forestry worker, professional caving instructor, motivational speaker, web coder and management consultant working for a global consultancy. Throughout his varied professional and personal life, Jon has fostered an active interest in using film as a medium for self expression, creative challenge, personal growth and communication. Some specific, recent projects include:
- Creating a 'viral communication' film with a team from a global re-insurance company who won an internal innovation award for their initiative to bringing agile teams together
- Developing the relational leadership skills of senior leaders from a global media production company, by challenging them to co-create a film in a day with service users of a charity for homeless people
- Facilitating and documenting through film the personal and professional development of senior leaders from a European financial services company, over a modular programme
- Challenging 220 participants attending a global IT conference to record, edit and produce short 'viral' films to communicate their organisation’s strategy to the remaining team members not in attendance
- Producing a series of 'viral communication' films for an International Aid Consultancy to trigger exploration and dialogue about the nature of 'Leadership in Uncertain Times'
I have a background in social care and then worked as a BBC journalist, which gave me great storytelling skills which I use now as a cameraman, editor and film-maker. I’m deeply interested in humanising business and making films about ‘the eth word’ - ethics, values and the things we most care about as people.
I help build awareness, both personal and collective, of how we communicate with one another, how things fall apart and how we can learn to listen, talk and act more powerfully together for the common good. My skills as a musician and photographer greatly influence the ways in which I engage with others - facilitator, organisational development consultant and integrative psychotherapist.
As a former BBC Editor I have worked on broadcast documentaries, animations and dramas for over 30 years. I love the variety of my work and see editing as a collaborative process, working with crews to craft the director’s vision in to the best programme possible. I really enjoy making films that dissolve the space between us and reveal people’s inner, authentic light.
