Why this workshop?

 

Successful meetings are well designed and facilitated, deliver great outcomes, and empower participants to move forward with clarity, tools and ideas to make meaningful change. 

Graphic facilitation is the process of identifying, expressing, and moving ideas and conversations forward using visual tools, models, and methods. In a business world of growing complexity and challenges for our attention, there is an urgent need for clarity in our communication, identifying and expressing a clear and compelling vision as a leader, and having a broader range of tools for team engagement as a facilitator.

We will share with you our processes and methodology, real life stories and “a-ha moments” from over 20 years experience in training, facilitation, and working visually. We will aspire to model everything that we have learned and use with clients to create a stimulating environment, and tangible learning outcomes using visual tools.

 

Who is this for?

Are you a team leader, trainer, presenter, meeting facilitator, process designer, working either internally in an organization or having your own business? Are you working in a role where communication and collaboration is essential? Do you want to bring more engagement, clarity, and creativity to your meetings, facilitations, and learning events? Do you want to become a more valuable thought partner in the design and delivery of your programs?

 

A meeting facilitator, trainer, or speaker who uses visual tools, sends a message to the audience: “this is going to be different”, this is going to be more collaborative”, this is how we can begin to create a culture of innovation in our organisations"

 

Why work Visually?

85% of your audience are visual thinkers. Learn to use the powerful tools of visual communication to more effectively engage your learners, team, and clients.

 

Benefits of Working Visually

  • People feel heard and acknowledged when they see their voices and comments reflected in the context of the overall group objectives

  • Visuals create a lasting and enduring tangible takeaway of the agreements and commitments from the meeting

  • Makes you stand out as a meeting facilitator or presenter

  • Invites deeper discussion and dialogue on the issues presented

  • Encourages big picture thinking, reducing conflict, leading to greater alignment on objectives.

  • Helps to create clarity and focus in a multiple language environment

  • Visuals help to focus attention and invite participation

 

WHAT OUR GRADUATES SAY

"Participated in the Visual Facilitation Lab and it brought so many new perspectives! It was a wonderful introduction to the world of visual language, connection and engagement, that can help me to engage with my team,  connect with customers, and to visualize intended outcomes. Tim and Irene inspire with their love and service to the cause - and are super willing to help in any way they possibly can. I took the skills and the help they offered within a week of the course and it opened a completely new avenue of engagement for me, increasing my effectiveness tenfold! Thank you!"
