I'll be participating in a number of events in the coming months. Here's an update on some of the events where I'll be speaking or delivering workshops.

  • Visual and Iconic Languages (VaIL) conference — Jul 21 - Jul 22, 2008
    At the VaIL conference I'll be speaking about visual language. If you can make it to San Diego, there's no charge to attend the conference.
  • Visual thinking workshop — Jul 25, - Jul 25, 2008
    On July 25th I'll be delivering a full, one-day workshop in Toronto. In the workshop you'll learn how to visualize your ideas so you can think and communicate with greater clarity and effectiveness. Working individually and in small teams, you will learn and practice visualization techniques that have been successfully used to improve innovation and accelerate change at some of the world's leading companies. After completing this workshop you will have a toolkit for thinking and presentation effectiveness -- your presentations of complex information and strategies will never be the same. More.
  • Visual thinking in practice — Aug 19 - Aug 20, 2008
    CONNECTICUT: What's the difference between theory and practice? In theory they're the same. In practice they're different. We'll look at some proven, practical tools and techniques for turning complex or potentially confusing information into clear, concise, concrete visual images. At this event I'll give a short talk followed by an afternoon workshop. Get more info at the CAIS Summer Institute.
