#sketchnotes Brand Innovators Summit on Social Commerce #bisummit

Brand Innovators are at it again assembling an ever inspirational and fun group to share best practice, talk about the future and have great fun. Thanks Ted Rubin for inviting me to join the conversation. It was a great event with much to think on. The day was filled with creating new stories with Liza Sperling of Tongal, Judy Chan of Livescribe, Susie Weitzman, Kristin Kosglow of Chango and reconnecting with Brian Solis, Bryan Kramer and of course, Ted, to the sharing insight of B. Bonin Bough of Mondelez, Jennifer Sey of Levi’s and many more. I hope you enjoy my sketchnotes, they are more fun when one can share and continue to build on the stories they tell. I look forward to many more. I only wish my iPad battery had lasted the entire event, and that I had to leave before the real fun got started. Until next time!

Sketchnotes: Nordic Game 2013


It was a great Day One at Nordic Game. Louise Wester and I had the pleasure of digital sketchnoting the keynotes. We managed to sneak in a few extras and enjoyed the day. Please feel free to share and let us know what you think. Several people asked us about using visualisation for ideation and storyboarding for games. The answer is YES! It works well, we can help and let us know if you need it. Thanks for a great event and congratulations to the winners of the Nordic Game Awards. Cheers!

Future Leadership – Sketchnotes

20130226-095515.jpg

This morning’s presentation was an interesting blend of transformational leadership, action versus reaction, connection and context. Maria Gustafsson of Actea Consulting spoke with passion from a perspective that I share on the application of leadership to all areas of our lives and organisations. I am looking forward to continuing our conversation on the applied use of social and transformational leadership theories into organisations. Theories are all fine and good, but without implimentation in practice they are just talk.

Behind the Scenes of a Digital Sketchnoter

I see you looking over my shoulder, as I capture the essence of the presenter’s point.  I may not respond. Please do not take this as my being rude.  I am listening with my eyes, my ears and my heart as I visualise the speaker’s intent.  A moment of pause may provide a chance to add a flourish of colour or detail.

True to my beliefs there is much to be done even when the speaker makes their final closing remarks.  Knowledge is power, sharing is powerful are the words I live by.  So share I must.  The job is not done until the capture is tagged for who, what, when and where.  I can then set it free in the cyber wilderness.  Hopefully if I have done my job well, it will find its way to those who are following these beautiful tagged beasts of knowledge.

You see me in the audience or your meeting, all hunched over and perhaps looking like I am taking a nap. Next time you will know that I am busy listening and creating another beautiful beast ready to be set free for all to share.

If you like what you see, please let me know how I can help you in your meeting or event.  One on one strategic visualisations are my speciality, but I love to do events to practice my craft and learn about new things.
