Discover Your Visual Language

LIVE Workshop Wed June 14th @ 1-5pm CET. 
Learn how to develop and use simple drawings at work. 
Reach out for special NGO and student rates. 

When we draw, we create clarity. 
In a digital world, hand-drawn visuals stand out.

Mindmapping, visual thinking, sketchnoting and prototyping all take advantage of one of the amazing ways our brain works. Drawing is an age-old discipline that we all can learn and which the brain grasps faster than it does speech or text. Everyone can use drawing as an effective tool for communication. Online collaboration technologies has given us new means to draw, adjust, and share our drawings with one another.

In this highly interactive workshop you will learn how to use simple visuals to strengthen your thinking, communication and collaboration. You will discover your visual language and learn a method with which you can continually become fluent.
