Visual Minutes for 'The Network' London

Earlier in the year I was live scribing for The Network. This is an internal organisation within the Home Office for black, asian and minority ethnic staff (and their friends!) to share ideas and information and support each other, while they are working for the Home Office. 

This year's annual meeting was the 18th one, so it's truly come of age. The venue was at the Oval cricket ground, London.

The image was laminated so that it could go on a road trip to spread the work of the network and keep the conversation going:

Thanks to Sarah Boulton from Realise for asking me to cover this event:

Scribing for Children's Services, Bexley, London

Over the last 2 years I've been working with Bexley Children's services as they encourage their staff to aim higher and recruit and retain good people, while changing behaviours and trying new ways of tackling difficult issues. 

After this summer's Ofsted inspection they have been declared 'Outstanding'!

It's been so inspiring to hear the stories of people who've been through the care system and then thrived. 

I've been really impressed by the way the live graphics I've drawn have been embraced and used systemically to communicate and reinforce messages for looked after children.

I was commissioned through Scribing Magic Ltd.
