Project: Social Enterprise Symposium – University of Maryland

I love these kinds of projects, because I get to learn something new about business!  I provided graphic recording for the Robert H. Smith School of Business, University of Maryland at their Social Enterprise Symposium.

My favorite quote of the day came from the keynote speaker, Shannon Schuyler of PwC.  She said “Creating a better world is smart for business.”  I agree, 100%.

Great speakers and special thanks to lead sponsors Price Waterhouse Coopers, EarthColor, and Goodwill Industries International, Inc.

Libraries are the New Hub for Dialogue Facilitation #LibrariesTransform

Libraries are the New Hub for Dialogue Facilitation #LibrariesTransform

“Libraries Transform” is a multi-year campaign about the transforming the role of libraries in America.  

This week I joined a webinar that showed libraries how to use several facilitation approaches to foster conversation and lead change in communities.  The webinar was hosted by the American Library Association and the National Coalition for Dialogue & Deliberation.

Here are just a few key points that I sketched while listening.  There are several more webinars coming up, so if you are interested, find out more here.

For as long as I can remember… I’ve always had a library card.  I’m really excited to see how the #LibrariesTransform initiative will play a role across our country.  The timing in our country right now is perfect for having meaningful dialogue.

Explainer Videos… Why We Love Them

We love watching explainer videos, but why?

One reason is that they grab our attention.

It’s amazing that the average attention span on the internet is just 8 seconds…that’s less than a goldfish.

These videos are highly effective because of one simple rule.

Show don’t Tell.

You could tell a person something over and over but when you show them…  that changes the game completely.

Here is an example of an explainer video I created.  I send my clients a digital image after each graphic recording project is complete.   This explainer video  shows how they can use the digital image.

Just click the image below to watch.

Explainer videos are great for marketing, training, and communications.  They are direct, persuasive, and engaging.
