Description

Why should you take this training?

You want to start diving into the world of visualization. You're looking forward to learning about Sketchnotes. You want to get practical Tips for visual thinking. All of this will be part of two highly visual days. After the training – even if you thought you could not draw – you'll say: "Yes, I can draw. Even with structure!"


The Trainings are bilingual – meaning as long as we only have German participants we'll perform in German. If we have an international group, the Trainings will be held in English and German as needed by you.

This is what you will do over the course of the two days:

  • Explore the three levels of communication
  • Find out about the huge world of metaphors and how to use them right
  • Master the Flipchart and develop your own templates
  • Get trained in the Tool “Explore and Condense” to new visuals from scratch

  • Train to transfer text into visuals
  • Experiment with visual note taking
