David Thompson and the mapping of Canada

Personal Landscapes

David Thompson travelled some 90,000 kilometres across North America as a fur trader and surveyor, mapping one-fifth of the continent. His work was so accurate it remained the basis of all maps of the west for almost a century. And yet, he died in obscurity, his remarkable achievements largely forgotten. His biographer D'Arcy Jenish joins me to talk about this remarkable man’s life and work, and his role in creating the Canada we know today.

Boardgames To Go 205 - Convention Season (with David Thompson)

Boardgames To Go

Opener: Royals Please join us on the Boardgames To Go discord server where you can chat online with other podcast listeners. For boardgame publishers, I believe there's such as thing as "convention season." Of course game conventions happen all over the world, all across the calendar, but for the industry there's a special significance to Gencon in the US, and Spiel in Europe. Add in Origins, UK Games Expo, the Nuremberg Int'l Toy Fair, events in France or Japan...the list goes on & on. Especially for the domestic North American market, however, the summer season of Gencon and Origins means something for sales & product launches. Both events are located in the middle of the US. Designer (and friend!) David Thompson is also located in the middle of the US. I had the great fortune to stay with him for a weekend recently, and besides playing a bunch of games together, we also recorded a podcast. He'd recently been to Gencon & Origins, as well as Ohio's own Buckeye Game Fest. We sat on his back porch during a summer evening and recorded this podcast together. I hope you enjoy the discussion. https://discord.io/BoardgamesToGo Closers: I sat next to a guy on the plane who played a lot of Catan...but only on the app on his smartphone. He told me how the original game has too much luck, how certain Seafarers maps turn it into more of a game of "pure strategy." I showed him Azul on BGA, Iberian Gauge in a photo, and A Few Acres of Snow on Yucata. It's like we were speaking the same language, but different dialects that could barely understand each other! -Mark

Employer Branding - with David Thompson

The HR Uprising Podcast

This week, Lucinda talks to David Thompson of Employer Branding Made Easy, about one of the hotter topics at play in the workplace these days - employer branding - and how the pandemic, and the resultant "great resignation" has had an effect. KEY TAKEAWAYS A brand is not a logo, tagline, or social media strategy. Your company brand is essentially the reputation you have - what people say about you when you are not in the room. Employer branding is similar to a company brand, in that it is the opinion held by people about what it is to work for you. It is what they say about your workplace when you are not in the room. Branding used to be used a talent acquisition tool. What has been evolving in the last few years is a broadening of the audience this image applies to. Strong employer branding applies internally to our people, providing purpose and vision, and helps to retain the talent we acquire. Externally, it draws in new talent who see our company as attractive to work for. BEST MOMENTS 'This is something that's evolved quite quickly over the last few years' 'A brand is what people say about you behind your back when you're not in the room' 'It's very easy for people to up-sticks and move on to another job' 'So many brands are using their people to tell their stories' VALUABLE RESOURCES The HR Uprising Podcast | Apple | Spotify | Stitcher The HR Uprising LinkedIn Group How to Prioritise Self-Care (The HR Uprising) How To Be A Change Superhero - by Lucinda Carney HR Uprising Mastermind - https://hruprising.com/mastermind/ www.changesuperhero.com www.hruprising.com Employer Branding Made Easy - https://employerbrandingmadeeasy.com/author/david-thompson About The Guest With over 20 years’ experience in employer marketing, David has enviable experience of shaping EVP and employer brand strategies for many well-known blue-chip companies including Asda, LV=, Gazprom, The Telegraph, Autoglass and AXA, as well as a number of important government offices and local authorities.  He’s also led some of the most respected employer marketing agencies, winning a host of creative awards along the way. In 2020 David and his partner (now also wife!). Sara established Employer Branding Made Easy - the first business of its kind to provide both Employer Branding training and consultancy. David is a regular blogger and speaker on all things EVP & Employer Brand. When he’s not doing that, you can usually find him halfway up a Welsh mountain on his bike. ABOUT THE HOST Lucinda Carney is a Business Psychologist with 15 years in Senior Corporate L&D roles and a further 10 as CEO of Actus Software where she worked closely with HR colleagues helping them to solve the same challenges across a huge range of industries. It was this breadth of experience that inspired Lucinda to set up the HR Uprising community to facilitate greater collaboration across HR professionals in different sectors, helping them to ‘rise up’ together. “If you look up, you rise up” CONTACT METHOD Join the LinkedIn community - https://www.linkedin.com/groups/13714397/ Email: Lucinda@advancechange.co.uk Linked In: https://www.linkedin.com/in/lucindacarney/ Twitter: @lucindacarney Instagram: @hruprising Facebook: @hruprising See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
