Idea Map 477 – Alaskan Style

15 Apr 2016 In: Idea Mapping Example

Liza Seiner - Alaska Idea Map or Mind MapCertified Idea Mapping Instructor Liza Seiner recently took a trip to Alaska with her husband. This Idea Map was created by Liza as a journal of their trip over the course of their travels.

Last week I shared 6 creative name tents from my 2-day Boeing Idea Mapping Workshop in St. Louis on March 8-9, 2016. For details on this brain game see my post from March 15, 2016.

Last week I taught a 2-day Idea Mapping Workshop for Boeing in St. Louis, MO. For those of you who have been through this workshop, you know the class starts out immediately with an activity similar to the game of Concentration.

Each workshop participant is asked to draw a picture of their name using color, images, numbers and either adding or subtracting letters. I like to collect some of them and then see if you can guess their names. The name tents only represent the first names of the participants.

Purpose of this activity is to immediately set the stage for a class that is far from the norm, get creative juices flowing, to put people in an uncomfortable situation (because many say they cannot draw), and it acts as a baseline for the drawing activities that are introduced later in the course.

After you’ve had a day or two to guess these names, I’ll post the answers. Have fun!

Broadway Street Sign NYCBryant Park911 MemorialRadio City Music HallBiggerplate Unplugged is making its next stop in New York City on March 10, 2016. This is the only event in the world completely dedicated to mind mapping that brings together users, experts, and software developers to share their experiences.

I was privileged to be one of the speakers at the first USA Biggerplate Unplugged event held in San Francisco, CA in March of 2014. It was a sell-out event with a waitlist! So get your tickets now.

The entry fee for the entire day is $129.00 USD and includes lunch and refreshments. To get a 25% discount off the already reasonable price just use the promo code: JAMIENAST25

Just for fun I included a few photos I took of the many sites to see while you are in New York City. They include: Broadway, Bryant Park, the 911 Memorial, and Radio City Music Hall.

Last year I was honored to teach 8 2-day Idea Mapping Workshops to Boeing employees in the Seattle, WA area, St. Louis, MO and Huntington Beach, CA.

I created this Animoto slideshow video as a tribute to those first 8 workshops. Photos were only taken in non-Boeing training facilities. Some of the idea maps were sent to me after the workshops.

I’m looking forward to the next 6 classes scheduled for this Spring.

Kiahuna Plantation 1990 SnagIt

Can’t resist posting the photos we took during our 25th wedding anniversary celebration in November. We returned to Kauai to stay at the same resort where we honeymoon 25 years ago.

A hurricane in 1992 changed a bit of the landscape in a few locations, the Beach House restaurant expanded and the trees grew, but everything else was pretty when we were there in 1990. Following are four pairs of photos taken in the same location in 1990 (pre-digital cameras!) and again in 2015.

These are first names only except for the second name tent which is first and last.

No fair clicking on the image in a new browser and revealing the file name!
