visuals to inspire change.



Powerful Presentations

Research has shown that visuals help the brain incorporate new information faster and retain it longer. We all instinctively know that images have power beyond words, but many of us don't include pictures or drawings in our PowerPoint presentations. Let's change that!

In this interactive workshop, you will:

  • Learn and practice simple techniques to heighten the engagement level of your participants and make your sessions more effective and fun.

  • Improve mind-mapping and action-planning charts with simple graphics.

  • Enhance your listening and communication skills by recognizing visual language.

Visual Metaphors
Exploring the Meaning in Our Words

A Communication Workshop

If you listen to the words your clients use, you’ll learn a lot about their view of themselves and the world. Do they battle with their suppliers? (war, fighting). Do they promise to knock one out of the park? (baseball, sports). How about pulling one out of the hat? (magic, trickery). What metaphors do you hear every day?

In this workshop, we will explore:

  • Common metaphors in our culture.

  • Symbols and shapes associated with metaphors.

  • Brain science – why metaphors work.

  • Best use of metaphors for effective communication.

Visual Goal-Setting for
Exasperated Goal-Setters

A Personal Empowerment Workshop

How many times have you set personal goals? And how many times have you actually achieved those goals? Does it seem like something or someone always gets in the way?

If that sounds like you, then join us for a workshop to get beyond SMART (Specific, Measurable, Attainable/Achievable, Realistic/Relevant, Time Bound) and KISS (keep it simple!)

We will explore multiple visual techniques to help you clarify and plan your path to achievement.
