About the workshop

Ever since our Paleolithic ancestors drew on the walls of their caves, humans have been using visual means to make sense of the things they see, think and experience. As the visual thinking guru Robert McKim put it: “Drawing helps to bring vague inner images into focus.”

This one-day workshop provides a thorough initiation into visual thinking and its myriad benefits. Not only do these techniques grant you clarity on what you want to communicate, they also make it easier for audiences to grasp your meaning. That’s because the brain processes images up to 60,000 times faster than text, and retains them for longer.

Not much of an artist? No worries. We’ll show you the drawing basics and teach simple visual frameworks that are easy and fun to use. Then we’ll practice these new skills by watching TED talks and sketching out the speaker’s ideas.

By the end of the day, you’ll have gained a whole new way to express your thoughts, refine your ideas and communicate with impact.
