Resume of chris waldron 2013

  1. 1. 1 Hello
  2. 2. 2 I like stories the resume of chris waldron M: 0412 374 050 E: Storytelling creates compelling experiences that build human connections. Stories help us to understand complexity. Stories can enhance or change perceptions. Stories are easy to remember... and engage our feelings... Storytelling enables individuals to see brands in a different light, and accordingly take decisions, and change their behaviour in accordance with these new perceptions, insights, and identities. Great stories, though just don’t happen; they are designed.
  3. 3. 3 In previous lives I have been Senior Designer, Art Director and Creative Director. I am restless, but rarely bored. I have a culture of thinking and doing. I believe in ideas. I work locally and think globally. I never stop trying to do it smarter and better. My enemy is average. I have the determination to make everything I do to be the best it can be, and often that means lots of discussion. I am about results. I get excited by a blank bit of paper and what it might become - by the idea/s I might scribble down and how it can evolve into a big idea. I don’t require supervision. I collaborate. I listen with both ears. I mentor and learn during the same conversation. I fight for the best ideas, even if they aren’t mine. I have some impressive skills and experience. I am passionate about what I do, about new ideas and other things. I love to work, play and laugh. If this sounds like you want in a relationship, we should talk. A bit about me

  10. 10. 10 Transformational design triggers a change in the organisational culture of its clients to one of ‘human-centredness’, helping to transform organisations by giving them the capability to design experience from a human perspective. Transformational design does not claim to be a change management process, but aspects of participating in the design process may help to move towards the desired outcome. This process can provide initial steps towards changing the culture, aligning thinking and focusing around the end user. Participation in the process gives stakeholders ownership of a vision and helps champion the chosen direction. Leaving the participants with the tools and capacity to continue to adapt and innovate means not only that organisational change will continue to happen, but also that it can happen alongside that organisation’s day-to-day work.• 10 transformational design Transformational design is a strategic response that recognises to change the perceptions of your customer base, and the market you want to capture, you must influence their purchasing behaviour. Transformational design acknowledges that ‘design is never done’. Because organisations now operate in an environment of constant change, the challenge is not how to design a response to a current issue, but how to design a means of continually responding, adapting and innovating. Transformational design seeks to leave behind not only the shape of a new solution, but the tools, skills and organisational capacity for ongoing change. Transformational design shapes behaviour – of people, systems and organisations – as well as form. Because of this, its practice demands a high level of ‘systems thinking’: an ability to consider an issue holistically rather than reductively, understand relationships as well as components, and to synthesize complex sets of information and constraints in order to frame the problem. I believe in
