Visuals in 3… 2… 1…👁‍🗨

Drawing to remember things better

When creating notes from e.g. conferences or courses, I use graphics to support my learning experience. I noticed that it is easier for me to remember the information if there is a drawing connected with it — it is like a mental picture in my head 📝

Preparing a Workshop

When preparing a workshop e.g. Discovery Event, I always think which exercise can be supported be some illustrations. I do that because I know it will increase participants focus, their creativity, and will have a positive impact on the whole atmosphere in the room 🎈

Drawing to improve a process

When generating ideas e.g. for possible improvements or training content, I try to draw the process/information flow or emotions I expect to experience. It is this creative time and space when, often, at the beginning nothing makes sense. BUT! It is exactly this feeling which leads to a bunch of sketches, words and ideas I can use to create something new and exciting. So, by allowing myself to be creative and imperfect, I unlock my mind and see things from new perspectives ✨

Drawing to communicate

When issuing communication pieces such as an article or a video, I think about what would be the best way to emphasise the message I want others to remember, by using graphics or visuals. Thanks to that my chances in reaching out to my colleagues and building their understanding are a bit bigger 🎬

“Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.”
