Spring 2013 brought another invitation from Florida Blue to perform visual facilitation during their live simulcast of TEDMED 2013 at their Jacksonville headquarters. Similar to working for Florida Blue/TEDMED 2012, this three-day event broadcast from Lincoln Center in Washington, DC featured a fascinating line-up of thought-provoking speakers who brought to life innovations and issues in healthcare and technology through discussion, art and music. This year's conference featured a live look-in at the Jacksonville broadcast and a interview with Florida Blue's CEO Pat Geraghty.
There's not many jobs where I get to have so much fun and learn at the same time- and by the end of the conference there's a lot of square footage of illustration for everybody look at!
I'm grateful and lucky to get to participate as well as to meet so many nice people- so let me give special thanks to those who made it possible for me to come down and work: Innovation Consultants Robin Shelly and Kathy Freyman, Administrator Patty Shlafer, VP Renee Finley, and most of all to Senior Director Business Innovation Les McPhearson - who was the catalyst for bringing the TEDMED live broadcast to FloridaBlue.
