In times of rapid change, experience could be your own worst enemy. – J. Paul Getty

The worst enemy could be status quo or not doing anything. Are you evolving?

Truth 1:

We need each other now more than ever. Collective action.

Truth 2:

We find ourselves in a paradox, we are regarded for our rigor but are required to transform.

Insight Curation – inspires wisdom to drive great decision making: consumable (accessibility), immersive, and memorable.

Art & Market Research: Parallel Worlds

Enlightenment is not about becoming divine. Instead it’s about becoming more fully human” – Buddha

The DIA Museum strategy: Engagement, context, reference

We’re putting technology right in there with the object. It’s a link, not an end in itself like a database. It helps bring people closer together and connect with them.” - Jennifer Czajkowski. Director of Interpretive Programs The Detroit Institute of Arts

Transform static things into an experience utilizing the latest technology and tools.

Infographical journeys: use metaphors, easy to see patterns, new watercooler
Video Narratives: carefully crafted music, customer narratives, authentic, emotional and human
Insights portals: Data, word art, multimedia, give power to the user

Build intelligence for a theme or topic, enhances EQ, allows better decision making.

The shift for us is mindset, environment and accessibility.

Make it fun and think dynamic multimedia experience!
