Unlock the visual cornerstone of your plan
You’re looking to take your idea to the next level.
You probably know that how you present your idea is as important as the idea itself. (Maybe more so.)
You want to build a concept that projects promise, appeal and belief.
But are worried about which language to use. Unsure whether the words alone in your mind are the most effective.
The bad news is that to rely on writing these out as text, no matter how condensed, will rob your plan of its great potential.
By following the suggestions of your favourite slideware standard templates, or a randomly found online list of ‘top ten’ slide formats, you’ll stay restricted and you’re idea frozen out.
That’s because you’re not being allowed to truly flower.
The light of your wonderful thoughts doomed to stay hidden under the most shaded of bushel.
A darkness which means you’re ideas likely don’t… :
Get taken seriously
Go beyond the verbal
Find fans in your sphere
Gather a crowd around them
Build a firm and lasting foundation
Quicken making something happen
Make it out of the back of your mind
Have anyone nodding along in unison
Attract the blessing of movers and shakers
Survive their first encounter with an audience
Become embraced as vital, or at the very least, useful
Evolve and improve to become even more compelling
I actively strive to help any and all good ideas avoid falling at any of these hurdles. Let’s make them become the standout initiatives they deserve to be. With achievement and recognition that they fully earn.
The special legacy I want this book to give you
Maybe you’re already at one with ‘chartsmithery’. And now you fancy being a magical ‘diagrammonger’ too.
Wanting your visuals to be more unique, ever higher quality and gain greater collaborative take up.
Providing the kind of pattern-disrupting novelty that leaves sameness behind for genuine engagement and memorability.
Getting your plans embraced, and your graphic dexterity noted for rendering the complex, simpler.
Here’s what I want for your knowledge at this next level I’m offering;
- boost engagement for almost any new idea
- systematically and consistently beat the look of other ‘competing’ options
- launch smash-hit ideas
- turn these brilliant plans into rivers of ongoing system or process improvement, delivery or change
- know how to build substantial visual structures for the things that you want to make happen
- realise your most passionately sought initiatives with the turbo-power of diagrams to fulfil both your own and others around you potential
You’ll pick up both lots of little “1 percenters” little improvements that make graphics glow and flow, all the way to through to the occasional breakthrough world-turned upside-down concept.
Whilst also catching any odd whopper mistake being made now that would spell disaster if allowed to remain unnoticed
The thrust being to light fires of desire. Help elicit a ‘yes’ response from your suggestion more frequently. Banish the ‘no’s as much as possible and turn them at the very least into a ‘maybe’.
No more staring down a blank page in a battle of wills.
See how easily you can flex your newly toned idea-explaining muscle.

Are you a diligent team member? Hoping to nudge supervisors into change.
Are you a salesperson? Whose enterprise must gain prospect buy-in.
Are you a manager? Revealing true state of play for colleagues.

Keep calm and diagram for victory
The onrushing ‘new normal’ is certainly going to give rise to a different workplace to what we’ve been used to. Can we shape it, or will we let it browbeat us?
Thankfully, for one aspect of change racing our way, we can now have an answer. More online interaction is absolutely coming.
Online time rockets. More video conferencing, less in-person meetings. The effect on our daily routines will be huge. Verbal pitches, conversations and agreements will dwindle. The pressures of contact reduction can only be countered by an increase in the types and number of any and all of the collaterals that back up, support and drive such transactions forward. They will become so much more important than in relative pre-corona stability.
In short, diagrams will prove themselves to be a fundamental pillar of getting anything done in or across workplaces. Vital to crafting the future you wish to see take hold. This book will help you shine in such brave new world order.
