WDC2016 - Nicholas Alpi

07 Oct 2016 in Sketchnotes Tagged: Live Wdc2016

I am very much an IT salaryman having been in-house for a *long* time so Nicholas’ talk about his journey to running his own agency wouldn’t seem to be that relevant to me, the talk worked nicely. Talks with a strong narrative thread are always nice to follow, and this had that.

Three very good talks about switching activities, making things and recruiting well.

Empathy. I liked Jack’s range around psychology and interactions with people, though it did meander a bit for more, which goes with the territory when talking about such an interconnected topic. Not to say I didn’t enjoy it, but perhaps covered TOO much.

Packed with useful and relevant info for work we’re doing in work right now, I really liked the balance of specific tips and broad principles. Lots to take away and work on.

Good reminder that efficiency isn’t the only thing to consider when doing good work.

Creative Mornings Cardiff - Gavin Strange

07 Aug 2016 in Sketchnotes Tagged: Live

A cracking way to spend a Saturday morning. The lovely people at Creative Mornings, Cardiff put on another cracking speaker, and the Saturday Morning format was great for me, meaning I could hang around a little after. Gavin Strange’s talk was a whirlwind journey through his work and some of the stories behind it. The joy he has creating such a varied range of cracking work really came across. I scribbled out just a few of the things that had particular resonance for me - not sure that anyone else would find them any use, but Gavin said to share, so I am.

Ben Calvert and Helen Walbey at the USW Support Staff Conference 2016

My first time of attending the Support Staff Conference in the University of South Wales, saw me listen to a talk by Ben Calvert, The Pro Vice-Chancellor for Learning, Teaching and Student Experience. It was a lot more interesting than his rather dry title would lead you to expect.
