'While planning for the Re-launch event of the Action Community for Entrepreneurship (ACE) in September, the Art of Awakening name popped up during a discussion when we were exploring creative ways to engage the guests at our event. After a very quick conversation with Irene Kang, we got an idea of how we could incorporate both our visions visually.
With an extremely tight deadline, Irene not only managed to capture all of our visions but also put them in a visually stunning manner. We were completely bowled over by three boards which Irene put together for us and our guests were equally appreciative of Irene's work. It was our first time working with the Art of Awakening and certainly won't be the last.
ACE would like to take this opportunity to thank Irene Kang and the Art of Awakening for the brilliant work produced for the Re-Launch event. And we will be putting up all three boards on display at our new office when it is ready during the first quarter of 2015.'

"Thank you Irene for your gorgeous graphic technique for our workshop. I was so inspired with it and I have been thinking to learn how to do it by myself. I was so excited about this picture that I changed the cover page of FB to this one! Thank you very much!"

"Thank you Irene for such a memorable graphic. You put the key message "Flip" into the graphic. It's somehow planned, but it's happened with chemistry of all the participants. Every lively words and behaviors are captured in your graphic. That's so amazing!"

I’ve worked with Tim in many conferences and events. He is THE go to guy for visual work. Tim is so empathetic and perceptive, he can extract the essence of a talk and put it together in a way thats very compelling for the attendees and the trainers and speakers. He’s able to bring the best out of every group and presentation. If you want to create some great take away value for your next team meeting or conference, I highly recommend to have Tim in the room with you.

Great opportunity to practise new skills in drawing and visually communicating my ideas. Opens up so many more possibilities to connect more effectively with my ideas and with teams. Visual thinking tools are a great way to work toward new solutions to thorny problems.

-Richard Teo GM Fuji Xerox Singapore
“I found Tim Hamon’s succinct presentation on Visual Goal Setting very engaging and useful, where I picked up 3 simple tricks that can be used in my training session: Draw live, get a marker in the participants’ hands and create templates. Tim was very passionate and encouraging too in sharing his knowledge and experience with us. “
Yvonne Seah, Trainer
The Visibility Coach Keynote Speaker
Tim Hammons, a talented artist, captured the essence of my presentation in a form of art that is tangible, memorable and permanent. He is an artist who does unbelievable, amazing work and i was thrilled to see him in action.
Usually, after a presentation we tend to forget newly learnt knowledge within an hour however his work makes it last. He amplifies everything that the participants were taught and his drawing can be revisited on a regular basis to serve as a reminder.
Tim is highly recommend to bring to your conference to make your learning journey much more enjoyable and memorable.

Testimonials for Tim Hamons
Visual Recording work
Tim Hamons is an excellent graphic recorder with a unique style to his graphics. I have worked with him on a workshop entitled "Entrepreneurial Transformation through Bridging Leadership" where he was able to effectively represent the sharings of the session onto a visually attractive and informative visual recording. Through his recordings, the participants felt engaged and interested in the subject matter. In addition, the recording helped the participants in remembering their learning journey and the thinking process of the group which in my opinion aids in learning and memory.
- Erwin Chan, Chief Innovation Officer, SMU
Thank you for last week’s session. I enjoyed the chance to work creatively with a team that I don’t normally get to spend time with. It was also fun to explore what the concept of “me, key and we” meant to me on a personal level and what it meant to others when we did this as a team. On a personal level, I am doing some work to explore what my mid life goals are and realign them to my future- the exercise on defining “me” in that column gave me a breakthrough when I thought about it from that perspective.
Thank you once again,
Jaya Dass, manager, business support, Randstad Pte Limited
He bring out our creativity and bond us closely together in the session. He never failed to bring laughter to the session. He is clear with instructions and make those that doesn’t know art at all at ease. He is caring and will guide us along the session. Great to know at the end of the session that all in the room is an artist

A wonderful day spent on the Art of Visual Thinking workshop with Tim Hammons, it was such an exciting program and my team has gained so much from him. This was especially meaningful to those who believed that they could not draw, however to their surprise they left the workshop with a different mindset. The techniques that was acquired could be applied anytime onto business context and daily life.
We love to be able to collaborate with Tim again.

“We are delighted to partner our friend Tim Hamons in bringing world communities together to do good. The SIF’s Ideas for a Better World forum promotes the exchange of insights and experiences between global thought leaders and the Singapore community to inspire action for a better world. Tim’s mind-mapping and graphic visualisation work amplifies the Forums’ ideas and etches in our minds the many nuggets of inspiration long after the last participant has left. His creative works never fails to amaze Forum panellists and participants alike, winning him friends and fans.”
~ MATTHEW LEE,
Director, International Networking, Singapore International Foundation
"Tim Hamons' awesome combination of talents (his visual acumen, his ability to reduce and synthesize hours' worth of concepts into simple, memorable picture metaphors, his uncanny sense of flow and harmony) helped make our conference sing! We're confident our attendees' retention increased dramatically, as they kept returning to Tim's interesting artwork to review and digest the day's ideas. Our group even loved taking home printouts of Tim's great work. Wow, his addition to our messaging strategy was a wise move!"
~ STEVEN MAUEL,
Creative Director - Event Organiser (P&G)
“I have engaged Tim to work alongside us on several interventions as our visual recorder. They range from a large-scale forum consisting more than 700 participants and a more intimate meeting of less than 20 people. Tim’s talents include his ability to capture the discussions and nuances of what is being said visually. This energizes participants and engages them emotionally. A joy to work with, Tim is very open to exploration and new ways of working. This makes it easier for us to create a good experience for the participants. Do feel free to contact me if you need any clarifications”.
~JEFFREY ONG SHU YUEN

"It is such an amazing talent to be able to capture the sequence of ideas, visualize it, put it down on paper, and then actually preserve it so that other people can learn from it. It is a wonderful talent; Well done."

"As an event organizer this work enhances the value of our event, as it helps everyone to have a practical application of a different way of thinking. It helps the participants to understand more and increase the benefit from their investment in the conference."

"These visuals bring to life the essence of what we speakers are trying to say. I love the playfulness. I think we need to learn to be more playful in what we do. What you do just speaks with the heart in ways that words can’t."
Speaker and author of “Barefoot Leader”
"These graphic creations are highly accurate in how they have captured the content, key points and other points of each presentation in a fun and memorable way for the entire audience and the speakers. I highly recommend Tim as a speaker/presenter/ consultant on team work and creative thinking in the workplace as a master graphic recorder and a visual meeting facilitator."
