Discover Manga

The next step big step in business and print communications?

imageRoger C Parker, of Guerilla Marketing fame, sent out a mail shot recently inviting people to a call with Will Reed from Tokyo.  Will offers a unique combination of East and West competencies and philosophies.  A skilled martial artist, Will was an early advocate of mind mapping.

Now, Will Reed is focusing attention on Manga, the art of picture storytelling. Although Manga has long been popular in Japan, picture storytelling, is growing in popularity in the United States and the United Kingdom. "Manga," according to Will Reed, is destined to play a major role in business-to-business and business-to-consumer communications because it communicates at a glance."

I find Manga or comic book storytelling enjoyable, accessible and a great aid to memory.  It merits serious study for its applications in business and community work, for instance.

I recommend you visit his website, http://agili.jp/, and view his Manga story, communicated in a series of Manga panels.  If this sparks your interest why not join Roger C Parker's call on March 19th?
