This week I will be reporting from Edmonton, Canada. I arrived Saturday evening, welcomed by a Canadian cold front and snowfall. Once checked in to my hotel and getting caught up on jet-lag, I sat down at the desk and took a look at my agenda for the week. I am invited to speak at a week-long conference at MacEwan University to speak with University students on my book and the concept of Hyperthinking, a new mindset for our digital age., followed by a webinar to the students of the University of Alberta and a public event later in the week.

Throughout the week, I will be meeting with students and am hoping to get their insights and documenting their experiences with digital and the concept of Hyperthinking. I will also be discussing ‘digital mapping’ a method used in digital communications by ZN Consulting to gain audience insights on an assigned topic, with students from the University of Alberta on Monday evening. In addition to taking a closer look at Hyperthinking, we will also be exploring digital’s impact on the healthcare industry and looking at a case study on Break Dengue, a project I have been actively involved in.

On Sunday evening, I met my host this week, Sherrell and put some finishing touches on the planning for this week after enjoying some wonderful Canadian hospitality and dinner. Readers can also expect to see a few guest posts on the Hyperthinker blog from students participating in this week’s events. Be sure to check out my video blog entry below for a more detailed description on the happenings this week in Edmonton. Don’t forget to join in the conversation throughout the week on Twitter and Facebook using the hashtag, #hyperthinker. Stay tuned…
