Sunni BrownSunni Brown is Founder and Chief Human Potentialist of Sunni Brown Ink, an international consultancy supporting organizational problem-solving around communication, creativity and culture. She was named one of the “100 Most Creative People in Business” and one of the “10 Most Creative People on Twitter” by Fast Company. She is a global public speaker and the best-selling author of Gamestorming and The Doodle Revolution. Her TED Talk on doodling has drawn more than a million views and her work has been featured in such major U.S. publications as The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Time Magazine, WIRED and Entrepreneur.

In this conversation, Sunni discusses her keynote at the upcoming Presentation Summit 2016 series.

Geetesh: You are presenting the keynote on Tuesday called Being Centered while Taking Center Stage. Give us a curtain-raiser introduction to your session; and what you believe the attendee will take away from your talk?

Sunni: My hope is that the attendees will leave our experience together with a newfound sense of appreciation for the internal work we can all do to become better, more attuned presenters. There are many offerings for external resources – better slide design, more effective story structures, etc. – but few of us discuss the inside challenges that go on when we “take the stage.” I want to offer a way of honoring being fully human, fully yourself, while being in front of others.

Geetesh: Sunni, you have authored the best-selling book, The Doodle Revolution and have also done so much to destroy preconceived, ill reputations associated with doodling. Can you share some thoughts?

Sunni: The Doodle Revolution was inspired by my felt sense that learners everywhere need to be able to use many channels of the mind – not just those associated with reading and writing or the dominant modalities. Over the years advocating for visual literacy, design thinking, and the use of thinking games in any environment, I’m beginning to see those seeds take root and flourish, which is very gratifying. But there are still many forms of resistance to alternate learning techniques, so the Revolution has been taken up by the global audience of readers and doodlers to see how far it can go. The book is very much a love letter to and for people who think differently or who want to learn to think differently.
