Say it with a picture

Speaker: Stuart Young

Session: 90 Min. Workshop


Within the Agile world things move very quickly. Face-to-face communication is key, as are fast feedback cycles. However, it is also essential to record key decisions and actions within the fast feedback cycles. What if you could visualise your ideas, make it easier for others to relate to what you have in mind, keep stakeholders engaged and make team collaboration more effective?


This fast paced and interactive workshop will encourage participants to communicate through pictures by applying some simple and powerful visualization techniques.
Visualise your ideas, make it easier for others to relate to what you have in mind, keep stakeholders engaged and make team collaboration more effective.


From start to finish you will be guided through fun, bite-sized exercises that will collectively enable you to successfully captivate an audience through pictures.


Whether you wish to enhance your facilitation skills, make collaborative design thinking a key enabler within your team, or simply gain the confidence you need to draw live in front of an audience, this workshop is for you.
