What is risk?

This is what happens when I mix my day job with my night job

– A video answering the question, “What is risk?”

Some of you already know that I’m an engineer, but you mightn’t realise that my current job is as a risk manager. Last week I thought it would be fun to fuse my engineering work with my cartooning to see what would happen.  And this is my modest result. Let’s call it a fun 101 introduction into the concept of risk.
 
So humour me a bit here and click the image below to watch on youTube and then …

…Let me know what you think?

Workplace diversity

Inspired by the line from the Blues Brothers, when the woman was asked what kind of music was played at the venue in question. ‘Sure, we have all kinds here – country and western.’

Do you have a favourite line from Blues Brothers, or perhaps another movie?

Who knows, it might somehow make its way into the next cartoon

 

Spot the difference

Workplace equalityI was inspired to create this cartoon when I read a Forbes article written on the 2016 Grant Thornton UK LLP London study into senior roles held by women in the workforce. The study reported that almost four in ten businesses in G7 countries have no women in senior management positions and those companies that do have women in senior roles, average out to 22 percent.

We have a long way still to go.

A typical work conference call

office on line conference call

Sound familiar…Or should that be look familiar?

This cartoon was inspired by the online conference calls I make as part of day to day work in the office these days. However, it was when I reflected on the now 14 million+  YouTube views video A conference call in real life, that I thought to myself, how would I convert the idea into 2D cartoon form.

Do you make online conference calls at work?

What funny things happen to you in those calls? Who knows, I might turn it into a cartoon.

 

 

My workplace

Think outside the boxThink outside the cubicle…

Obviously that’s what my workplace was thinking when they recently reconfigured our office floor space… not that I’m complaining. I mean, in this case I’ve moved from office to jungle…

My open plan office

And before I forget, a big shout out to Seeker, long time blogging friend. It was a post she made a few weeks back that planted the cubicle seed.

So, back to the cubicle…What makes your cubicle special?

My cubicle is below…special, huh?

Frank and the office cuckoo

Two cuckoo facts that you mightn’t know

  • Not all cuckoos are brood parasites (organism that relies on others to raise their offspring), the majority of cuckoos actually raise their young themselves
  • The roadrunner, one of my favourite cartoons, is a fast running ground cuckoo

The new work employee

The black sheep

Every family has a black sheep lurking in the group and looks like every work office does too. What are the odds that the next employee will be a dung beetle to deal with the droppings? Before you know it, the office will be a full on self sustaining ecosystem.
