Get ready for the drawing board!

Two half days of fun. For everyone who wants to start drawing in pitches, plans and presentations.

You work in a professional or creative environment. You present ideas or plans to your team. And whether you are a manager, marketer, designer or communication professional; your team will understand you better and faster if you draw them an image of ​​your ideas. Drawing visual images additional to text-based notes or slides is known as visual noting. But also as graphic recording or sketch noting. It is a visual translation of information. And it works!

We offer you two half day workshops; The first will help you rediscover and tap into your drawing skills ( Because yes! You can draw!). The second will help you with the strategy behind visual noting: how to prioritize and arrange information, explain concepts, use layouts and connect ideas.

Read the complete program below.

I am sure you’ve heard that our brain is much better capable of remembering and processing images than words. Well, how come you don’t use it in your presentations, pitches and meetings? Probably because you think you are really bad at drawing. 

So you keep on writing down tag words, quotes and remarks. But when you or your colleagues try to make sense of them later, often the context is lost.

And thats where visual noting proves its power. The combination of words and images can illustrate, prioritize, connect, compress and unite ideas. 

Visual noting is not about making the perfect drawing. It is not about being a creative genius, not about art and not about beauty. Visual noting is functional; it’s about conveying ideas, facts and plans, and dragging in your audience along the way.

Keep learning and practicing online!

In between and after the workshops you will have access to our online classroom with all presentations in movies and downloadable PDF files.
And we will keep you practicing with loads of creative exercises.

Now that we got you excited about visual noting..here’s how we are going to make you ready for the drawing board.
