An interesting workshop offered by Sarah Clark of Clear Thinking – Clear Communication:

Visual language and graphic facilitation

Maison de la Communication, Lausanne, Wednesday 29 & Thursday 30 January 2014

An introduction to the techniques of using hand-drawn visuals in a range of professional contexts, including group facilitation, coaching and training.

You will learn the basics of visual language and how to use a mix of simple drawings, colour, words and metaphors to develop and share ideas, record presentations and meetings, and engage and energize groups.

Thinking that you can draw is absolutely not a prerequisite— if the techniques interest you and you’re prepared to experiment, please join us. We will spend a large proportion of the time each day practising and sharing within the group.

Engage both your right and your left brain and have fun!

Details are attached. Space is limited, so reserve your place now! The deadline for registration is 6 January.
