A few highlights…
With a good night’s sleep, a fresh cup of hotel coffee, and a few paper cuts from the night before from sorting photo images for one of my presentation exercises, I grabbed a muffin and sat down for another keynote speaker.
Peter de Jager presented an enlightening and eye opening presentation on Change Management. He opted to not stand on the stage or use any presentation slides. With a strongly projected voice, and a single-page handout he proceeded to go through misconceptions and obvious truths of change management. Essentially, the first step is understanding that denial and resistance is expected and okay and the collective group must WANT to adopt the change (e.g. a bottom-up approach). With rapid technology change and slower process change, it was refreshing to absorb his perspective.
Stump the Captivate Experts
***Thanks to the folks who attended my session on incorporating best practices of art, photography and film to informal learning. It was cool discussing different grid and storyboard approaches during the exercises and I really appreciated the discussion during and after the presentation. It was a lot of fun. A special thanks to Silke for checking it out as well!!!
I also had the pleasure of attending a beer tasting with such great minds as Jay Cross, Tony Karrer, Silke Fleischer, Mark Oehlert, Brent Schlenker, Stephen Downes, Judy Brown, Clive Shepherd, Lance Dublin, Tom Crawford, Mark Prasatik and more.
