When we launched the Rockstar Scribe course in May of 2011, we had so many amazing people appear in our lives.
Heidi Forbes Öste (@ForbesOste) is definitely one of those people.
A Boston native, Heidi now lives in Sweden with her husband and children, and has a passion for humanizing technology and strategic use of social tools for individuals & organizations both online & face-to-face.
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.
As part of her wider research into the tools and methodologies used by the next generation of global leaders, Heidi has started down the path of researching 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.
