Visual Meetings course
This is a course for both new and experienced facilitators who want to transform their group sessions, workshops, training or meetings into memorable, interactive visual sessions.
Whether your meeting is virtual or face-to-face, using visual tools gives everyone a big clue that this meeting, session, or workshop is going to be different. When we say ‘visual’ we’re really using a short code to sum up the beneficial traits of working visually: creativity, participation, activity, working together, working alone, ideating, solutionizing… you get the picture.
If you want to take your facilitation skills to the next level, this online course gives you key visual tools and techniques that you can start to use straight away in your workshops, meetings and training sessions, whether you’re working virtually or facilitating in-person events again.
Your tutor Cara Holland
Cara has been a visual facilitator for over 2 decades, working in the UK and around the world. She has built up a successful graphiking business with all kinds of organisations as clients, from the NHS to Google and IKEA. She’s developed her own personal style and visual facilitation methods through trial and error and has put that learning into this course.
Developed from years of running face-to-face graphic facilitation training, this course is full of tips, techniques and insights Cara has learnt IRL, so that you can boost your facilitation skills with visual tools, techniques and templates.
