[This is a workshop in Changemaker Gear Up Training Series (GUTS)]

Visuals are the universal language. And you don't need to be good at art to harness the power of visual thinking.

This workshop aims to introduce the visual thinking tools to you for communicating ideas through demonstration and practicing. You can experience the power of visual tools that could help your studies and work in brainstorming and presenting ideas, storytelling, or simply taking notes in class. You can then put your learnings to use at your next presentation, pitch or team meeting! You will be able to:

  • Understand the purposes and benefits of visual thinking
  • Use basic visual elements in expressing ideas
  • Apply visual thinking in generating ideas and produce presentations using visual templates
