What is Visual Facilitation and Collaboration?
Visualisation is using pictures, icons and text to convey visual concepts, create striking posters, and facilitate workshops and effective meetings
What is this session about?
In this bite sized session Samantha Guy and Danny Low will join us via Zoom and help you build your visual facilitation toolkit. Using a few simple visualisation tools can help you communicate efficiently, facilitate memorable conversations, solve problems and create solutions with your colleagues and stakeholders; unlocking you and your teams’ awesome creativity.
But I can’t draw!
No drawings skills required. The stick figures and icons we teach can be learned by anyone.
How will drawing help me with my work?

- Collaboration - Ideas on how to use visual facilitation to increase engagement and participation in your work
- Visual note taking - Beginning skills in creating visual diagrams & maps, graphic organisers to capture information and make it more memorable
- Templates - Takeaway some ready-to-use templates/canvases to impress your colleagues at your next meeting or workshop
