Content of the training

In the morning, you get some hands-on experience of the basic ingredients of drawing. You explore what you can do with drawings, to help develop self-confidence about your creative skills. By the end of the morning, you’ll be able to convert abstract ideas into images, and your sketchpad will show the first signs of your personal visual language.

In the afternoon, you work on your own subject. You gradually introduce structure and combine images into an integrated whole, giving meaning to your story in a way that stimulates others. By the end of the day, you’ll have an illustrated version of your own business case, which could be a prompting board, infographic, vision board, or roadmap. To conclude, you learn how to digitise your drawing, and share it with others in a way that generates their interest.

“For anyone who wants to escape the limits of PowerPoint, visual storytelling adds life to ideas and complex information. Your presentation also never comes to a halt because of technical problems, and the audience can easily remember the transmitted information. In other words, just draw it!”
Kirsten van Rijn, KPN
“I never thought that I’d be able to draw like this, but in fact it’s really simple!”
Joyce Ohello, Rabobank
“Enjoyable training! I learned a lot about drawing techniques and strategies in a relatively short time, above all through plenty of practice.”
