Is that something I could do?

Come learn to increase engagement, participation and productivity in group settings using the awesome power of graphics!

Our workshops are limited to twelve participants and are designed for those entering the field. Great for facilitators, teachers, trainers, consultants and you! Yes…YOU CAN do it!

This is for you if you want to:

Learn to listen for, distill, translate and capture any information into visual form

Learn to use a variety of visual tools to help groups connect, collaborate and think better

Engage people in higher-level meeting discussion, boost retention and increase accountability for action by making thoughts visible

Discover and enhance your existing deep visual thinking abilities and develop the confidence to translate ideas to images

Relinquish the idea that you “can’t draw.” Don’t worry…everyone we train thinks that. We are skilled at showing you that you can

3 Great Reasons To Take This Workshop 

  1. Awesome Instructor

Your trainer, Lisa Arora, has been an incredibly successful Business Strategy Consultant, graphic facilitator Lisaand graphic recorder for over 7 years. You get not only her expertise as a visual practitioner, but her viewpoint as a global consultant, educator and partner to other visual practitioners. She’s a gifted instructor, she’s plugged into an amazing network of resources and leading edge developments in the field and she’s incredibly dedicated to making sure YOU are equipped with top-notch skills in this field.

  1. Realistic Approach

We teach you only the most important, most relevant, most impactful fundamental skills you need to begin capturing information visually and processing it in meaningful ways with groups. We know that developing your visual practice takes time. You can’t learn it all in one workshop. We help you go slow at these first few steps so you can master the basics and later go fast. We don’t overwhelm you by introducing you to too many applications at once and we don’t teach what you already know.

  1. Ideal Learning Environment

We emphasize hands on practice and we limit the workshop to 12 people so you receive the individual feedback and coaching that is so critical to developing the skills and confidence. You’ll experience visual methods expertly modeled in the workshop delivery and discuss how these apply to real meetings/scenarios.
