The Visual Facilitator

This course covers the essential elements of visual thinking, giving you the confidence to pick up a pen and draw in front of others.


People are unique in their ability to use symbols and images to communicate. After all, that is where the saying “a picture is worth a thousand words” comes from. So, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that enhancing your spoken and written words with pictures improves the chance that others will understand what you are trying to say. 

If you need to innovate, invent, analyse, come up with solutions, ideate, solve problems and retain information, then this is the course for you!
