One of the most valuable gifts I’ve ever been given at work was from the retiring planning guru, who bequeathed me a powerpoint document containing every chart he’d ever used.
I’ve spent some time adding to the ‘Toolbox’, (the paper version of which now fills a lever arch file) and now the combined paper & digital edition includes:
- every interesting chart or graph I’ve seen used in other people’s presentations recently
- inspiring articles on the future of planning, research methodologies, the role of brands, trends in new media etc.
- really good awards entries and case studies
- a scrapbook of great creative and imagery I admire
My toolbox has become so valuable that I’ve made an extra copy to keep at home in case of fire, flood or an Act of God destroying the office.
What would you put in your toolbox?
