Rachel Smith’s first day as The Grove’s new leader in our digital services area in January coincided with a presentation I was giving at Coro’s Center for Civic Affairs in San Francisco as part of their Coro Leadership Network. She came and recorded my talk on her iPad and this is the result! We’re announcing more about Rachel and her new role later, but I wanted to share her work here for those of you who are on the curl of this new trend in tablets! We plan to be there. I won’t go into all the details of my talk on the The Theory of Process and how it provides a bridge between engineering and eco-systems thinking. The clues are here in this recording.

Cheryl Esposito has been hosting an internet radio program called Leading Conversations for several years, featuring thought leaders in the area of organization transformation and development. Recently I appeared on her program and shared insights about the process of writing Visual Meetings, the impact of visual language on meetings and organizations, and what it means to work with a full range of visual styles–as mirrored in the Graphic Language Keyboard.
Click on this DAVID ON VOICE AMERICA link to hear the show. Cheryl is part of the SF Bay Area Thought Leader Gathering and shares our sense that when humans work with ALL their faculties — spirit, soul, mind, and body - that wonderful things can happen.

A colleague of ours, Lynn Carruthers, was featured this week in the San Francisco Chronicle talking about her experiences as a graphic recorder.
Here is a portion of the article:
I work for a local consulting firm, Global Business Network. I was the assistant to the chairman, Peter Schwartz, for eight years. And then one day one of my colleagues who had seen a graphic recorder said, “There’s this thing out there. You ought to look into it.”
I thought, “What can I lose?” So I took a two-day class at the Grove, a consultancy in the Presidio where graphic recording was developed by the founder David Sibbet. The next week Peter had a job at Motorola. He said, “You want to come with me and do that paper thing?” and off it started. I’ve been recording eight years.
