What If(s) of Our Hybrid Future / Ideas & Tools

Follow Aaron Russell as he takes us on a journey of creative reflection; what we used to do, what we’ve done during the pandemic, and where we might go in the not too distant future. Learn how Aaron is deepening his practice as a graphic recorder to playfully unearth synergistic possibilities that digital tools present. 

This 90-minute session is designed to stimulate conversation and idea sharing and promote the value and importance of connection and sharing ideas and best practices with each other.

You will be taken on a journey starting with Aaron’s adventures moving from purely analog to creating responsive, multi-layered digital recordings that can grow into time-lapsed video. And you will have opportunity to discuss and share ideas in the large group and breakout discussions. Topics include:

  • What we’ve been doing to push the envelope, sharing our wins and losses and considering how ideas and tools combine and evolve.
  • Sharing a) What we’ve done, b) What we’re doing, and c) What we are being called to do in the future.    
  • What ideas keep you awake at night (and a chance to hear about some exciting ‘Visual DJ’ like, ‘What If’ type ideas that keep Aaron awake at night)

The goal is for you to leave feeling inspired to play and push boundaries, and to have made connections with others.

Facilitating Virtual Collaboration


“I came back from your Principles of Graphic Facilitation workshop energized and with a pack full of skills (and resources) and a wonderful support group. I wanted to tell you that it has been among the best workshops I have ever attended: great design, great trainer/facilitator, great materials, and very practical. In fact, I am putting my new skills into practice right now.”


Sylvia Vriesendorp, Management Sciences for Health
