Performance Infodoodling™

We LOVE great speakers and great content, but we hate that their insights linger so briefly at events, streaming in one ear and out of the other before new knowledge can really be integrated. That’s why we’ve spent years training Performance Infodoodlers™ — visual journalists (documented on CNN!)  that capture key thoughts and ideas large-scale and in real-time — translating concepts into words and pictures so the audience leaves with insights they won’t forget. Our Infodoodlers are talented and versatile, deploying a range of techniques and styles, and we work with you to tailor our approach to your event. At SB, Ink, we aim to educate and to please. We deliver the top-notch performance. You and your audience get the reward. (Those “wow” moments never hurt either.)

Use Performance Infodoodling™ to distinguish your event and your company:

  • Give the audience a more powerful, multi-sensory experience.
  • Give both internal and external stakeholders big-picture, visual summaries of speakers’ insights.
  • Give the speakers visual memorabilia of their content.
  • Build an onsite panoramic view of the intelligence and creativity as it emerges.

Group Game Facilitations

Many people think games have no business in the workplace, but we politely beg to differ. At SB, Ink, we take games seriously. We know they offer opportunities for exploration, discovery and insight unmatched by traditional thinking techniques. That’s why we designed a business gamification method called Gamestorming.  Based on a book translated into 15 languages, gamestorming combines visual + large-scale + game thinking to help groups analyze, align, innovate, investigate and solve any problem they face. We work with you collaboratively to design and lead participatory group sessions that help you and yours take smart, appropriate action that’ll move you toward any goal. As our gaming predecessors used to say, this ain’t hopscotch. Play is serious business. (And of course, it can be fun, too!) Game on.

Use Gamestorming to elevate:

  • Product, Service or Experience Innovation
  • Strategic Planning
  • Process Improvement
  • Trust-Building and Team Performance
  • Any challenge posed by your current business environment

Innovation Sessions

Everybody talks about innovation, but the how of it remains a mystery. It’s not mysterious to SB, Ink. For years, we’ve studied how the mind and body integrate and we know what conditions are essential to spark new ideas. We use our proven Gamestorming methodology to design and facilitate innovation sessions to move your team to breakthrough products, services, and business models. We partner to shift habitual thinking patterns and help you see your business and your content with new eyes. Every human being has an innate capacity for innovation. It’s a matter of designing an environment and facilitating an experience that will unleash the creative problem-solvers within.

Partner with SB, Ink to:

  • Rethink your company perspective and approach on products, services or campaigns
  • Disrupt habit patterns and inspire lateral thinking
  • Establish a culture of innovation practices
  • Design patentable intellectual property
  • SB_Sketchcamp_20120319_068WEB

    Disruptive or visionary innovation is not based on genius, obsession, serendipity or eureka.

  • SB_Sketchcamp_20120319_056WEB

    Innovation is not only available to the few, bright, “creative-types.”

  • SB_Sketchcamp_20120319_046WEB

    To innovate is to understand that everything we “know” is subject to change.

  • SB_Sketchcamp_20120320_297_web

    To innovate is to become confident–through practice–that we can be proactive agents of that change.

  • SB_Sketchcamp_20120320_257_web

    Innovation is about learning techniques to perceive phenomena in a new light and knowing how to build and create from new awareness.

  • SB_Sketchcamp_20120320_247_web

    Innovators recognize that ideas are infinite, swarming in the atmosphere, hovering, waiting to become known. Ideas are a regenerative resource.

  • SB_Sketchcamp_20120320_193web

    Organizations who really drive innovative practices get certain things right:

  • SB_Sketchcamp_20120320_135web

    Right people, right inputs, right environment, right process, right facilitator, right culture (even if it’s temporary), right amount of time, right effort.

  • SB_Sketchcamp_20120320_182web

    SB, Ink uses business-game thinking to build innovation sessions that are effective, transformative, and fun. We design and lead. You get results and learn. Ready when you are.
