Well, most of you know that I’m the one writing these posts, so it would probably be a bit disingenuous to write a bunch of flowery speech about myself. So, instead, I’ll tell you how excited I am about this event. Les, our host and sponsor at Oakland Schools, approached me with this idea several years ago…what if we brought a visual thinking workshop/conference to Michigan? We talked, ruminated, planned, schemed and finally brought together what I think is going to be an amazing event. We wanted it to be inexpensive…reachable for everybody. We wanted it to be interactive…lots of games, activities, and hands on learning. And most importantly, we wanted to hang out with amazing, creative, smart people who could inspire us to take our thinking and communication skills to a new level. I think we’ve exceeded this on all counts.
One of the things that I love about my career is that I get to hang out with and learn from some of the most amazing people in the world. Jamie Nast…brilliant, creative, fun, kind, and generous. Karl Gude…energetic, creative, funny, artistic, and full of stories. Cliff Atkinson…smart, talented, successful, and insightful. Frankly, if I could just hang out with all of the facilitates all day, it would be a great event. It’s such an amazing list of leaders in the industry.
While all of these people do interesting things every day, so do all of the attendees. One of the things I’m looking forward to most is hearing what you are doing and how you’re applying these techniques (and others) everyday.
I’m so privileged to be the MC for the event, as well as leading a session on mobile apps, but way more exciting is the time I get to spend with each of you!
