We all need a company environment for creative thinking, innovation and rapid problem-solving. A technique called ‘gamestorming’ makes it easier than you think. During this 1-day workshop Sunni Brown (co-author of the book Gamestorming) demonstrates how visual thinking + business games can be used for strategy, insight and innovation. She creates an interactive learning experience that immerses you in a selection of games to help you break down barriers, communicate more effectively, and generate better ideas, faster. It's a workshop full of tools and techniques designed to enhance the way you think and the way you work. Join us in Amsterdam on June 6, 2013.
Since the vast majority of us have to either plan or attend meetings, why not become a Jedi at leading them? Gamestorming is the practice of using simple but powerful visual thinking techniques to make meetings work. The Gamestorming Workshop is a one-day session (based on the book) that will establish fundamental competencies in designing and running meetings using principles of visual thinking and office supplies you already have in your closet.
InfoDoodling is the practice of capturing information shared in a group in a large-scale, visual-language format. The value it adds to group processes is enormous and, according to Harvard Business Review, it beats presentation software in terms of communication effectiveness. The InfoDoodling Bootcamp is a one-day session that will establish fundamental competencies in using visual language (words AND pictures) to capture and display information in meetings and group processes.
Because we live in an intensely verbal culture, chances are we’ll be taking some kind of notes at work and at school for the rest of our lives. (Groan.) But note-taking doesn’t have to stink. Tracking content using imagery, color, word pictures and typography can change the way you understand information and also dramatically increase your level of retention. Stop suffering through notetaking that works against our brain’s structure and start creating visual maps that actually impact how you learn.
We’ve done bootcamps with companies like Razorfish, Duarte Design and TEDActive.
