I am pleased to announce that there will be a Graphic Facilitation Workshop in Rossland, B.C., Canada September 23-24th, 2013! Otherwise known as #Rosviz, this will be our fourth offering in this beautiful mountain location. If you are looking to improve your communication and engagement skills using a mix of text and visuals, this workshop is for you.
When might we use this practice?
Sometimes our imaginations are sparked by a visual where words fail us. Think about when communities plan and imagine their futures, when teams consider the possible outcomes for their projects, when groups create maps to track their progress. Whether you are strategic planning, enhancing reports or explaining concepts on the back of the napkin, these are all opportunities to use visuals to engage and deepen understanding. You can use visual thinking to improve teamwork, communications, meetings, build engagement and to plan and evaluate work. Step out of the PowerPoint rut!
Who should attend?
Facilitators, project managers, team leaders and members, town planners, teachers and anyone who would like to engage others beyond words.
Please note:You do NOT need previous experience or have to consider yourself an artist. At some level, we can all draw and use visuals to enhance our communications and engage diverse audiences.
“I am still on cloud 9 after the Graphic Facilitation workshop. Thank you soooo much. I feel recharged after that! You two are such great facilitators. You were willing to bend over backwards to ensure we were comfortable and enjoying ourselves/ learning to our full potential. There wasn’t a moment that I was not completely engaged during the workshop.”
