Clear Thinking on a Mac

Wednesday, June 20, 2007 at 7PM at the Apple Store, Third Street Promenade, Santa Monica, CA


Are you a linear thinker or a visual thinker? Do you make lists and outlines or sketch Boxes, Blobs, Lines and Arrows? Fortunately the Mac is great for either and becomes a totally extreme thinking tool when the two are combined.

The Secret Language of Diagrams can increase the speed and depth of understanding
of relationships, processes, and areas of business activity. They are just as helpful in
discovering how things work as they are at documenting how things work. Two Mac
third party applications: Curio and OmniGraffle can help anyone make ideas visible.

This talk covers:
How to use diagrams to organize and present information.
How the right kind of diagram can break writer’s block and move any assignment ahead.
How to quickly assess any business diagram and judge its value.
How to draw diagrams when you can’t draw.

Time: 30-40 minutes plus Q&A = about 50-60 minutes.
