At ActionCraft Company, we help change-makers expand their impact and open doors through visual strategy and storytelling. We get to facilitate — using live mural drawings and digital graphics — inspiring and actionable strategy roadmaps produced by leadership teams, like Hamilton Health Sciences Foundation (HHSF) in Canada. For more than a decade, with my business partner (and brother) Gary Hubbell, we have helped guide and visualize the Foundation’s philanthropic strategy aimed at increasing widespread community health through an integrated blanket of care. Foundation CEO Pearl Veenema (below) has been a champion for expanding intentional leadership development and integrated strategy.
At a recent annual management retreat, Ken Hubbell captured the team’s collaborative sense-making in a twenty-foot colorful mural that lifted up the key concepts and strategic analysis of HHSF’s post Covid philanthropic vision.
Noting the continuing adaptive challenges triggered by the Covid crisis, Ken visualized the emerging context for a set of transformed philanthropic strategies and a more diverse and inclusive organization.
Having the large-scale story murals highly visible will help the leadership team and Board maintain a clear focus on their intentions and celebrate their courageous collaborations toward becoming the healthiest Canadian city.
