At the June 2019 GTD Summit, David Allen briefly shared a vision of the ultimate GTD app, which consists of 19 pages of hand-drawn drafts of the screens he would want to use.

It's a wide-ranging discussion with stories that will inform, entertain, and maybe even surprise you. This episode is part one of two.
This is a fascinating, wide-ranging conversation between David Allen and Brian Robertson.

They also consider what happens after your personal system and your organization's system are on cruise control.
Join David Allen for an intriguing discussion about leadership and the architecture of story, with Nancy Duarte and Patti Sanchez. They came to fame when they created the presentations that Al Gore used in speeches for several years before An Inconvenient Truth won the Academy Award for best documentary. Their book is Illuminate, "a road-map to help leaders move people to embrace bold visions and carry them forward." They describe five phases of an organization's story, and how leaders need to communicate to inspire progress. The team at Duarte have also been a trusted resource for David Allen Company in the storytelling involved with our GTD curriculum.
