Event description


Business Models Inc

As International Strategy & Business Designers, we are delighted to be hosting our Visual Meetings & Facilitation Workshop in San Francisco!

On July 20, Maaike Doyer and Justin Lokitz from Business Models Inc (San Francisco) will be delivering a Visual Meetings and Storytelling workshop. Visualization is a powerful way to make ideas concrete and actionable and create a common language. By making your meetings more visual you will increase creativity, productivity and playful exchange for serious work in groups.

During this workshop, you learn how to implement and use powerful visual tools. You and your team will communicate about complex issues and strategic themes more effectively and engagingly, unlocking formerly untapped creative resources for business success. You will start working with graphic recording, visual planning, story boarding, graphic templates and your own icon and template library. You will be able to start your first visual meeting right after the workshop!
