A friend of mine just sent me this presentation … it is a great example of the ‘exponential change’ and the ‘revolution’ that is happening right now!
“A while back Scott McLeod, Jeff Brenman (who did the Slideshare version) and I received an email from someone at Sony BMG Music Entertainment asking us if they could remix the various versions of Did You Know? for a meeting they had coming up. We said sure and they came up with this and gave us permission to link to it. (It takes a little while to load – sorry, can’t figure out how to embed it. you’ll have to follow the link).”
Now another variation that is just plain text … no images to support the ‘core messages’. For me, much prefer the video and slideshare slides above!
So how does this relate to what I am passionate about in work (ie. facilitation and tackling sustainability issues)?
- The way in which people work together, collaborate and get things done is changing more rapidly than ever before. In my facilitation work, I want to enjoy riding this exciting new wave!
- As a passionate advocate of sustainability and tackling climate change, social media provide everyone with a voice and a media channel to reach millions of people. For me, I intend to use this opportunity to be a part of (and help to lead at times) real and fundamental change. Change in the way we view ourselves and others. Change in the way we use resources and care for the planet
If you were interested in this slideshows above, here’s some ‘must watch/read’ links that I think build on some of the stats and ideas presented here:
1. Sir Ken Robinson at TED – on creativity and education for the future
2. Clay Shirkey’s “Here comes Everybody” – on the power of crowdsourcing and the social dimension of the internet
3. Dan Pink’s “A Whole New Mind” – on where employment is heading and on using the right and left brain at work
4. Seth Godin’s “Tribes” – about leadership and movements
5. Garr Reynold’s Presentation Zen – The book and blog are great if you want to create slideshow like this
Hope you enjoyed this post as much as I did writing it!
