Bryan Mathers started working as a Software Engineer. He founded, grew and then sold companies and then he started an accidental journey of visual articulation of interesting thoughts called Visual Thinkery. His job is “not really drawing itself, it’s the thinking – Mathers says – visually articulating a thought. So I’ve made it my job to help others catch thoughts and articulate them visually. As such, I’ve created thinkery for a whole bunch of Organisations”.
“As a kid in a classroom, I didn’t question it. I took what was laid before me, in the environment in which it was given. I was taught. I found it difficult to ask questions, as it revealed a lack of knowledge or understanding. The game was one of “how much do you know?“, maintaining our pecking order of perceived smartness. However, there were some teachers who came down to my level and transparently learned alongside me. It was different. They were different. The game was different.”
