I just wanted to take this opportunity to pass on some of the feedback that we have received re: your work at the Hazards Risk Management Workshop. Your mural has done the rounds of various venues – Bert put the murals (photos of) and key learning points re: the workshop on to a 7 foot laminated poster that was displayed at the Emergency Preparedness Conference, a Fraser River Basin Commission meeting, the Canadian Risk and Hazards Network Conference in Edmonton, and at the Pacific Council of Senior Federal Officials.
Universally the feedback has been terrific and your work has helped us to engage audiences that normally we not reach. As a result of seeing the outcomes in graphic form people have put in their name for the next workshop and asked “Why wasn’t I invited?!” Some people who were initially skeptical of the process, once they have seen the outcomes on the web site have been sold. Your work has really assisted us in our mission to engage and interest more people to becoming aware of the issues re: Critical Infrastructure – so thank you.
It was my great pleasure to work with this large and intelligent group. A special thank s to Laurie Pearce, for her commitment to Graphic Recording, to Bert Struik from Natural Resources Canada and to the passionate and capable folks who come together for this important work around Hazards and Infrastructure planning and management. Also, a thank you to Lisa Arora for her Graphic Recording work with this group. They are well supported!
