Description

MAKE AN IMPACT WITH VISUAL THINKING!

There’s no shortage of information anymore. Even when we have all the data and people in the room, it doesn’t always add up to a great meeting. What’s missing are people who can help groups make sense of information and help people feel heard.

Make an investment in your meeting skills with this two-day foundational course in Graphic Recording and Graphic Facilitation.




THIS TWO-DAY INVESTMENT WILL

  • Expand your leadership tool-box with visual superpowers

  • Elevate your ability to include diverse voices in meetings

  • Develop your capacity to distill information

  • Sharpen your tools to have more effective meetings

  • Teach which type of visuals improve group engagement

  • Hone your creative thinking and problem solving skills

  • Explore visuals as a key tool for systems change

This highly participatory and hands-on graphic recording workshop is intended for facilitators, educators, managers, and innovators. We will support each other in awakening (or re-awakening) our creativity!
