Member Spotlight: Danny Howell

How One Member Is Living the Concept of “Be The Change You Want to See”

When Danny Howell first joined the OD Network he felt alone when clicking through the website. He was unsure how to best utilize the site, how it could benefit him or how to connect with other members. Danny is currently pursuing his graduate Organization Development degree at Pepperdine University. Fortunately, one of the benefits of being a student at Pepperdine is a free membership to the OD Network.

Danny had previously met Marco Cassone as a result of Marco being a Pepperdine alumnus. Marco encouraged Danny to attend a Welcome Group Meeting led by Kristine Lea; Danny agreed and was inspired by the conversations and the people he met. During the session he had the opportunity to share how he experienced the Network when he first joined. He was encouraged to participate in helping to come up with solutions to change that experience for other members.

He is now leading a sub-group called the Welcome Video Committee (AKA: Welcome UX or User Experience). They are focused on creating videos as a different type of communications medium. Their target is to create three types of short (2-7 minutes) videos: 1) Informational to help better connect members; 2) Conversational Interviews with OD Thought Leaders and 3) Instructional videos to teach different topics.

Fortunately, for the OD Network, Danny has experience with creating videos and other audio visual pieces due to his love of music. Although it is just a hobby, he has gained some valuable skills as a result, and has been grateful to share this expertise with our Network.

Danny shared that he enjoys the people he has been working with on this effort. He regularly has a group of 4-5 people who attend his meetings, and the team has develope a plan through the end of the year. They had one pilot video test run and it garnered attention. They are now talking through next steps to get this idea/program implemented.

Danny’s UX Team is looking for volunteers! They are currently seeking:

  1. Members who enjoy interviewing thought leaders or other members
  2. Members with audio visual technology skills
  3. Members with cutting edge knowledge of the latest technologies
  4. Members who are interested in this effort

If you are interested in helping Danny and his team with this effort, volunteer to join them.
