As a regular reader, and admirer, of Brene Brown’s blogs, I recently came across one that caught my attention. Brene had posted pictures done by an artist named Colleen Stevenson. She had made graphic recordings of a talk that she had given on Inspired Leadership to Fraser Health.
Brene said she was blown away by them and when she asked her how she decides on what gets recorded and what doesn’t, she replied, “I listen for the hush and intense quiet. These are the moments.”
I couldn’t help but reflect on a similar experience I had recently when I was giving a presentation to the organisation, Workcover in Adelaide.
There I caught up with fellow speaker and friend, Glenn Capelli. Glen is the creative guru! He is a motivational speaker, author, songwriter, radio and television presenter. You can learn more about Glenn from his website, www.glencapelli.com
After my presentation, Glenn sent me copies of the graphic recordings he had done on my talk. It blew me away! I loved it and posted it on my Facebook page for my friends to see.
It reminded me of the mind maps I often use when I give workshops. I find they get the creative juices flowing, as do Glenn’s drawings. It also showed me that everyone takes something different from my presentations, and it was fun to see Glenn’s perspective and how he interpreted my messages.
