A 1 day course exploring visual facilitation with individuals and groups
Do you want to learn how to create visuals at meetings and workshops?
Would your publicity materials, reports and case studies come alive with your unique illustrations?
Are you curious about capturing concepts in a visual, creative way?
Do you have a strong desire to ‘get back to basics’ and learn how to communicate using hand-drawn visuals?
We are excited to share our tried and tested ways to use visuals in your work to bring stories and concepts to life, stimulate the imagination and to interact with and engage people
You can benefit by attending this fun interactive course. We explore how to create a visual record and produce visual templates for facilitating in a lively accessible way, including:
The ‘building blocks’ of graphics – lettering, people, icons, text containers and more
The difference between graphic recording and graphic facilitation (and when to use each)
How to structure a visual record as you facilitate
How to create your own graphic templates to use when facilitating
This course is suitable for anyone who facilitates, trains, coaches or produces documentation.
- Feel confident about creating your own graphics
- Understand how to use graphics in a variety of contexts
- Have lots of ideas for your next presentation or training session
- Be hooked on the joys of working visually!
“Kate makes valuable drawing skills accessible to anyone”
Les Hood, Training Officer, Adult Support and Protection, NHS Highlands
‘We had a wonderful day connecting with everyone last week. We dived into taking imperfect action, making use of the graphics for our Team Meeting agenda, which worked beautifully. We all relaxed by colouring in, whilst managing to successfully work through a range of team topics. Thanks for the inspiration! Thanks for all the laughter too everyone. We’ve bought some ‘magic paper’ ready for doing some graphic facilitation on next week’s course …’
Karrie Marshall, Director, Creativity In Care, Inverness
I thoroughly enjoyed the drawing out ideas with graphics workshop. What stood out was the fun and laughter that emerged from the exercises woven throughout the day. Kate has a way of teaching that allows participants to feel relaxed and at ease. The workshop is very empowering. I felt the whole room grow in confidence over the day. At the end of the day there was a room full of people with new skills and ability to draw and to take this back and use in their work places. A week after the course and I’ve already used my new skills. I highly recommend doing this course if you are somewhat considering it. The greatest learning and outcomes I’ve had from a one day course!
