August 7-8, 2017
Summit Executive Centre
205 N Michigan Ave., Chicago
Maximum 15 participants
What to expect in our two-day visual facilitation training
Carola and Frank will conduct our introductory two-day-training-format, focusing on learning the bikablo visualization technique and its application in presentation, facilitation, recording and knowledge-sharing. Beginners and advanced visual facilitators are both warmly welcome!
No matter how small or big your talent or experience, you will learn how to use small details to make large spaces look clear, attractive, and lively. You will be working in small groups and both trainers will take plenty of time to answer your questions and guide you into the world of visual language with guidance and techniques suited to fit your individual progress.
Holding the pen and drawing the line: How do I draw clean lines and structure my space on the flip chart?
Graphics and text containers: How do I create simple arrows and connecting elements from basic geometric shapes in order to present related topics? Which text containers (e.g. speech bubbles) can be used to support which kinds of messages?
Objects and symbols: How do I draw simple symbols to underline messages? What is essential, what can be left out?
Figures: What easy ways does bikablo® provide to draw people, roles, groups and situatiions?
Color and space: What are simple and fast options to color elements and spaces in a quick and simple way that supports the graphic structure?
Writing: how do I improve my handwriting on the flip chart to make it more legible and attractive?
Live scribing: How can I use easy step-by-step techniques to record a dialogue in real-time and enhance a recorded poster with a key visual?
Posters and settings: How do I combine the ingredients (graphics, writing, symbols, figures, and color) to create to the point visual translations of content and meaningful posters for different purposes (welcome, agenda, instructions, group work)?

"I couldn't be happier that Carola and Frank are bringing the bikablo methods to us in the United States.Years ago, they gave me the great opportunity to teach an advanced workshop. Before I taught the next day, I popped into the last hours of this two-day workshop.
"I was blown away with the sophistication of the visual thinking the participants developed with these techniques in this short time. This workshop is not to be missed! I am eager to learn too.
