The power of hand drawn visuals in communication and collaboration is well documented and researched. But so often people believe that they can't draw, or their drawing is childish or messy. As a result, they don't use visuals as much as they could - so they're missing the impact of sharing information in a visual form.
In this lightning session, you'll boost the visual vocabulary that resides in your brain by adding 50 icons to it.
These are simple to sketch icons that can be used for many different purposes - each icon has multiple meanings. With this visual dictionary, you won't have the 'I can't draw' excuse anymore!
Lynne Cazaly, author of 'Visual Mojo: How to capture thinking, convey information and collaborate using visuals' will live draw 50 icons, symbols and visuals that you can use in sketch notes, scribing, visual note taking, meetings and retrospectives, UX or other elements of communication and collaboration. It's going to be lightning alright! Bring your note pad and pen - you're gonna need it.
