Ken HubbellActionCraft

Our ActionCraft work with leadership teams adds a lasting spark to accelerate the challenging work of creating real social impact. We craft strategic stories that transform the way people understand, remember, and act upon key ideas.

This summer, Ken Hubbell collaborated with several customers to produce colorful graphics they are using to elevate well-being and economic opportunity, and to accelerate digital modernization. It is fun to create big things with remarkable leaders who are scaling. Here’s a snapshot.

We Synthesize Complexity into Memorable Roadmaps

Wonda London and Ralph Brown shape a new automated lending tool in a Southern Bancorp Community Partners strategic retreat Ken’s real-time graphical storytelling and ideation enhanced the refinement of the new scaling plan. Ken provides continued strategic support to SBCP as it expands financial empowerment to underserved communities.

We Consolidate Huge Chunks of Content into Coherent Big Pictures

LeapXL CEO and cofounder, Marla Johnson, teaches business strategy to Honors Innovation classes at the University of Arkansas Walton College of Business. The September class showcased a “go-to-market” framework built upon lessons learned with her Leap digital app platform as a case study for prospective entrepreneurs. Ken developed the real-time visual mural as a visual process guide for the initial product ideation sessions.

We Build Energy that Excites New Audiences with Hand-drawn Animated Videos

Ken developed a powerful animated “Short” for Vail Health Foundation to introduce its $200 M campaign to build a support system across multiple rural counties in Colorado. Ken has been working with Behavioral Health leaders on an extended series of animated stories to accelerate Vail Health’s “It Takes a Valley” initiative. See the videos on the ActionCraft YouTube channel.

We Create Colorful Mobile Sculpture to Expand Trust and Innovation among Leadership Teams

Ken designed a hanging office sculpture for leaders at Hamilton Health Sciences Foundation (HHSF) in Canada to continually update with new learnings about applying philanthropy to reduce widespread social health disparities. Several times each year, the team invents new ideas for the sculpture as they engage with staff and Board members to activate campaigns targeting chronic illness across their region. Ken has been a strategic consultant for over a decade with HHSF. You can see their impact video on our YouTube channel: 10 year Retrospective Illustrated Animation for Hamilton Health Sciences Foundation.

Leaders in every industry are continuously retooling their approaches to effective strategy. Moving strategy into wise action takes great practice; but the good news is that there are proven facilitation and ideation processes like the visual ones we use that can turn the action into impact.

ActionCraft makes a group’s strategic ideas memorable and actionable! We put powerful ideas into action through visual graphics, animated shorts, and sculptural mobiles.
