Visual Thinking skills

 

 

Visual thinking makes ideas and thoughts visible and easy to share.

So your people and teams can connect more effectively.

When people connect amazing things happen.

 

That’s why we do what we do.

And why we do it for the likes of Google, the NHS, Microsoft and more.

 

With our online graphic facilitation learning, now you can do it too.

What people say about our training

Found the exercises well paced and just the right mix. Also really enjoyed looking at your / others’ work for inspiration – thanks!

S. Mehigan

I’ve really enjoyed this course and have learnt so much and I’m looking forward to putting what I’ve learnt into practice over the coming weeks!

K. Mistry

The course was great, the level of content challenging but still manageable alongside work and other commitments. The platform was clear and easy to navigate – and of course, beautiful. I found I was putting the lessons to use in my working and home life from week 1. Highly recommended.

N. Jenkins

A good mix of reading, theory and intense practice – all of which got me up to speed for work doing Graphicking even while the course was still underway

M. Penney

It is well designed, going step by step, and breaking down the process and weekly exercises in a nice way. The weekly goals are not out of reach, and they carefully push me out of my comfort zone. And to have Cara as a coach, with frequent and one-to-one feedback is the cherry on the cake

A. Curdy

I found the push to do the exercise and having to post them up for feedback is a great form of accountability.

T. Conyers

I think this this is a fabulous course. I’d highly recommend it to anyone and your support has been brilliant

G. Cox

I definitely feel empowered to keep working at this, and that my development has come on thanks to the structure and impetus of the course!

D. Andrews

Draw More Boot Camp has been a great way to start my first week teleworking during the Coronavirus. I got up early each morning, and treated myself to a daily lesson. Thank you!

Our Mission

is to help you get the benefits of working visually. We help you share ideas, connect with others, change thinking into doing and clarify the complex, by helping you draw more.

Why work visually?

There are lots of proven reasons why your business will benefit from working visually. Better engagement, effective problem solving, and increased alignment to name a few. Here’s some science.

But I can't draw...

Working visually is not about art. It’s about working, thinking and connecting differently. Anyone can do it. Don’t worry if you can’t draw at all – we teach you enough to make an impact.

What are the business benefits of working visually?

we are visual

We take in massive amounts of information in the blink of an eye. Most of our sensory receptors are in our eyes, so 90% of data is communicated to us visually. That’s why most sighted people like visuals.

it's quicker

We live in a fast world. We use symbols when communication is critical, urgent, or both. It takes just 250 milliseconds to process and understand a symbol. If you want to get your message across faster, use an image.

w

it's more engaging

Working visually switches on all 4 brain lobes. So your colleagues and customers are more engaged when they see visual communications. If you want your audience to connect with your message, work visually.

it's more inclusive

As the size of your audience increases in size and diversity, so does their language, learning and literacy needs. Using images reduces barriers and ensures more people are included in your message.

it's stickier

You remember visual information better and also for longer. Recent research has shown a significant recall advantage for words that were drawn instead of written. If you want your message to stick, draw it.

$

it's the future

You need to be more collaborative, creative and innovative to stand out from the crowd. We know from working with hundreds of clients that working visually gives you a key business advantage. Now. And for the future.
