"Without change there is no innovation, creativity, or incentive for improvement. Those who initiate change will have a better opportunity to manage the change that is inevitable." - William Pollard
I’ve been at this career quite a while (since right after Bush started that war in Iraq – the “Shock & Awe” one from the 90s, not the “NeverEnding Story” one). And over time I’ve discovered that my role as a #graphicfacilitator has 4 main responsibilities: 1) Reporter, documenting the key points of what you hear; 2) Co-Educator, as opposed to a teacher/educator, here you “co-educate” with the group you’re supporting by using their own input to reveal patterns that help them literally see what they are talking about; 3) Modeler, synthesizing concepts in real-time by creating graphic models that helps simplify ideas that can sometimes be complex, and finally; 4) Inspirer, taking metaphorical comments and bringing them to life in a way that helps inspire the team through illustration. The graphic here (from 2013, dry erase markers) is an example of that last role, the Inspirer. In this #graphicrecord I seized upon the comment that a member of the strategy team had made from this automotive company saying that their marketing and branding team was in “a #dance ” with the #design#engineering team to help create progress and #innovation . Hearing that concept about a dance between the two brought to mind something elegant and graceful and so I did my best to evoke the old Astaire and Rogers vibe by sketching two dancers that represented the comingling of ideas. As the group dialogue went on I continued to build on the metaphor to show them where their ideas converged. In this case, when they noted that they had to take more “risks” as a company and that “innovation happens at the edge.” As the dialogue progressed the participants really coalesced around that dance metaphor and from that moment on it became an inspirational and aspirational goal for the team, showing them that their organizational siloes needed to be overcome in order for them to “dance together” along innovation’s edge. I believe that when you become comfortable in the 4 responsibilities of a Graphic Facilitator in your own unique way then you become a real-time visual storyteller #scribe#visualnotes#sketchnotes#strategy#design#marketing#brand#conference#classicmovies#griotseyescribenotes
"A finer body of men has never been gathered by any nation than the men who have done the work of building the Panama Canal; the conditions under which they have lived and have done their work have been better than in any similar work ever undertaken in the tropics; they have all felt an eager pride in their work; and they have made not only America but the whole world their debtors by what they have accomplished." - Theodore Roosevelt
The most precise and arguably the most extreme resurfacing treatment for facial resurfacing and complete skin remodeling is the non-surgical facelift with @Renuvion’s helium plasma radiofrequency device. Combining the advanced technologies of radiofrequency energy and cool helium plasma, the signs of aging such as wrinkles, pigmentation, laxity can be improved quickly in a single treatment. This truly ground-breaking technology heats the top layer of skin without damaging the deeper layers as the cool helium is simultaneously emitted to protect the surrounding surface. The treated skin immediately contracts, tightening the area to improve skin laxity that occurs as we age, which is not common with laser treatments that improve the surface without tightening at the same time. We call this a ‘non-surgical facelift’ as the skin surface texture, color, and wrinkles improve dramatically in a single treatment that is very noticeable. This can be used to improve overall complexion by removing sun damage and brown spots, dramatically reduce pore size, improving fine lines and softening wrinkles. Notice the improvement in the overall skin quality around the eyes? The eyelids and periorbital skin smoothens and tightens simultaneously. Although this treatment is more aggressive and the recovery time is more lengthy than most non-surgical procedures, the results can be life-changing.

WHEN WOMEN SUPPORT EACHOTHER, INCREDIBLE THINGS HAPPEN 💕
Dit is wat ik zo ontzettend mooi vind aan ons meiden, met een missie. Elkaar motiveren en inspireren, tijdens onze reis richting mooie dromen en doelen. Ook wanneer het even tegenzit. De neuzen dezelfde richting op. En heel veel gezelligheid. Hoe leuk is het om zo een business te runnen. Ik zou niet meer anders willen 🙌
