The Art of Visual Facilitation
FALL 2020


Would you like to visualize your ideas and convey your messages clearly?

Would you like to make your flip charts more attractive and animated without too much effort, using handwriting, graphics, pictograms, and simple figures?

Step into the magical world of visual language and use it to: tell your story, express your ideas and concepts and simplify complex information.

It’s easier than you might think. For example, using just simple shapes like circle, triangle and line you will be able to start drawing:

Being able to communicate visually helps to make your ideas more engaging, memorable and easier to understand. It is a creative way to become a better Scrum Master, Agile Coach, communicator, lecturer, presenter and facilitator.

Even if you have never thought of yourself as an artist and visual facilitator, on this training course you will realize that you actually might be one.

On this Bikablo training course you will be guided with step by step instructions on how to make pictograms, figures and graphic elements using the bikablo technique. On completing the course, you will be able to design your first presentation posters and use them right away. You may decide to leave your projector in the cupboard for good. Using simple tips and tricks, you will experience just how easy it is to make even large pin board surfaces eye-catching and lively.

The trainer will reveal the secrets of the bikablo visualization technique, demonstrating how to draw details as well as how to organize the whole story line.

Special attention will be paid to answering questions and tailoring techniques specifically for your needs.
