Neil’s Journey

Yesterday I did some voluntary work for the CIPD. I was at their Social Media in HR conference doing a little blogging, doodling and curating, most of which you can see over at the CIPD tumblr site. An interesting mix of words and pictures emerged through the day, including this fascinating map of a journey by Neil Usher.

How I Got Off My Arse

Neil was part of a pre-lunch panel discussion about ‘My social media journey’, or as Neil called it, ‘How I got off my arse’, and he chose to support his short talk with this diagram. You can click the image to see a larger version.

I thought this was an interesting way to support a story, using one diagram rather than a bunch of slides. I’ve not seen a story told with a backdrop like this before yesterday and so I asked Neil if I could share his idea with you. He kindly agreed.

I hope you find this little post useful and who knows, maybe the next time you feel the temptation to go nuts on PowerPoint, you might try something a little different too?
