Jim Ridge

Jim advises and coaches Manufacturing clients across North America and Europe on World Class Organizational Management specializing on Change Leadership for Lean Manufacturing.

He is also a professional illustrator with strong conceptual skills, which he uses to facilitate problem solving and ideation sessions. One of his unique talents is using his 36 years of manufacturing experience, combined with his graphic skills, to make difficult-to-understand business problems easy to understand with simple hand-drawn images. He frequently presents workshops on visual thinking and visual storytelling and is also in demand as a graphic recorder for corporate clients.

Some of his works include illustrations for Tim Hurson’s best selling business book Think Better, Ken Wall`s children’s book series the Thriblett`s, and his own adult children’s book Lenard the Line which Jim presented (and drew) at a TEDx conference in Sarasota, Florida.

When not drawing what people are thinking Jim can be found welding metal sculptures, taking photographs with his vintage camera collection, telling traditional Japanese Kamishibai picture stories, or walking in the woodlands of his home near Toronto, Canada.
