Graphic Facilitation offers a unique tool to help clearly structure ideas, create ownership and clarify communication. These methods are significantly different from the usual presentation tools and working methods because they create engagement through co-creation.

Modules - Units & Learning Outcomes

We offer workshops for beginners and experienced practitioners who need to lead, facilitate, participate and co-create solutions. Workshop one focuses on developing tools and theory, while workshop two directly applies to your own work. We encourage you to bring along an example of a real project, presentation or meeting that you are planning so you can prepare using graphic facilitation tools.

You will explore the factors toward being graphically engaging.

There’s a story behind every picture. Combining words and visuals activate creativity and critical thinking at the same time. Structuring group work through visual templates ensures a high level of ownership, engagement and efficient workflow.

Put some power behind your point with your own unique hand-drawn presentations. People retain around 65% of what they see and only about 15% of what they hear. Colour and simple icons in narrative structures makes your presentations memorable, engaging and unique.

Navigate others through complex information by showing the bigger picture and making connections visible. Visual language offers a sturdy platform for communication and work between different professional disciplines and cultures that normally don’t share a common language or goal. The visual language becomes the 'third' place for sharing knowledge across boundaries and silos.

You Will Learn

  • Learn enough drawing to effectively represent your ideas. You don’t have to be artistic. If you can hold a pen you can do this, it is about thinking and clear communication.
  • Make visual planning models for workshops, lectures and project presentations that engage people in dialogue, create transparency, confidence, involvement and ownership.
  • Build a narrative that is specific to your organisation, course, or project and navigate others in complexity. What you learn is a structure - what you produce will be unique to you.
  • Have lots of serious fun and practice, including individual coaching.

This two day workshop covers the fundamentals of facilitation in face-to-face group events (team meetings, stakeholder consultations, project workshops). It is for leaders (project managers, team leaders, chairpeople) who want to develop their skills in engaging and motivating people’s involvement in projects and events.

Participants will learn how to design a session that engages participants, gets their ‘buy-in’ to a shared purpose and creates alignment between diverse stakeholders. The course will develop your skills to:
• Design for purpose
• Generate spirited interaction and robust conversation
• Deal with difficult people
• Build dialogue between participants – finding common ground
• Deal with the ‘unknown’
• Manage negativity and cynicism
