Lindsey Effner

For anyone regularly doing virtual whiteboards, I think this course is a HUGE value. As a facilitator who is constantly seeking ways to invite active participation and overcome the virtual meeting burnout, this is a no-brainer. 
Juergen Kleinstuber
Head of Strategic-, and Performance Programs

In this course I have learned how to design and facilitate inspiring and engaging online meetings and workshops. Participants are able to see the thinking and ideas of each other. I am now using this method for preparing and running workshops and meetings about learning, sales, project set up, idea-creation and process definition.
Dimitra Dimitrakopoulou
Visiting Assistant Professor

What makes this course great is a combination of the facilitator, the content, the visuals, the pacing of the learning, the overall experience! I learnt a new framework of engaging visually with my topic of interest and making remote but also in-person meetings.

Microsoft
In my current role at Microsoft I don’t have the luxury of working with people face to face, so we do a lot of joint visualizations on digital whiteboards while connecting team members from all parts of the world. Visual Collaboration provided an extremely helpful method for clarifying goals, working out joint plans and shared responsibilities, and avoiding cultural or language barriers in our teams
