Most of my working life has been spent as a cartographer in the environmental ‘field’ and I loved it. I could not believe that I was being paid to colour in all day and go back the next day and do some more!
A side step into Learning and Development and Innovation strategic management helped me develop and use facilitation skills which led to a desire to help others understand the power of using this approach.
I now realise that using creativity in my work is important and try to inspire others to release their own creative beasts!
Having spent years drawing maps on large pieces of paper I find myself coming back to this approach with Graphic Recording. I used to capture boundaries, woods, fields and buildings and now I capture words, thoughts, feelings and ideas.
And you know what? I love it!
