In her practice as a Global Social Strategist and Visual Practitioner, Heidi provides workshops, strategic visual harvesting and consulting to clients worldwide.
Somehow, she is also pursuing a doctorate through Fielding University.
Heidi's wider research involves the tools and methodologies used by the next generation of global leaders.
As part of this research track, she has begun investigating the value of "visual practice" (visual facilitation, graphic recording, mindmapping, sketch-noting, etc.)
As a piece of her dissertation, Heidi's research on the visual practice, although still in the early stages, focuses on how it supports leadership and global teams using social technologies.
This discussion with Heidi was a fantastic opportunity to ask questions and gain insight into the broader trends at the intersection of social systems, collaborative technology, visual learning, innovation and global leadership.
