At 50th Generation we tell people to Make & Share stuff all the time. There are some great lo-cost / no-cost tools out there and with a bit of design knowledge, you can create strong communications quickly. We’ll show you how we do it, in one day.

  • Spend the morning understanding the principles of good design – including The 4 Laws of Layout and the current trends for space, simplicity and large scale.
  • Spend the afternoon learning the practical delivery of great design in your comms – web, social media, video, PDF plus a skim of what you need to know about the technicalities of image creation.
  • Entrepreneurs show you why, when and how they create amazing things quickly on their phone and what they put more effort into back in the office – and when to hire the pros.

A video brings your business to life like no other medium. You don’t have to be Kathryn Bigelow or hire a film agency to create something moving or inspiring or credentialising or fun or….

  • Spend the morning understanding the principles of a great story film and starting to sketch out your ideas
  • Learn the techniques for filming lighting and filming people shots and interviews yourself.
  • Spend the afternoon honing your storyboard, testing it and practice-shooting parts of it.

Not everyone can or wants to speak at TEDx (though if you do, it’s probably more accessible than you think) but the process of creating a TEDx style talk is transformational and the resulting words and presentation can be used in many different ways.

  • Spend the morning getting under the skin of an inspirational talk or message like the TEDx style and starting to sketch our your storyboard
  • Spend the afternoon honing your talk, practicing delivering a message in a variety of scenarios (written, visual and verbal) and exploring quick ways to get that inspirational message to many people.
