Some months ago we were inspired with taking Sunni Brown to Bilbao to share a bit of her knowledge and her originality. Next week it´s coming true: on 22nd +  23th September she´ll be offering a 2 day workshop in Bilbao (just this opportunity in South Europe)...

DESCRIPTION:  Gamestorming your Workplace (A.k.a., How to Design and Run a Meeting using Words AND Pictures)

Since the vast majority of us have to either plan or attend meetings, why not become a Jedi at designing and running them? The simple but revolutionary techniques of visual thinking and gamestorming assure that your meeting not only doesn’t stink, but that you make the best use of everyone’s time and dramatically shorten the length of time in which you do it. The value of visual thinking and participatory design with a group is enormous and the benefits include...

  • Using a simple, shared visual language to increase understanding and information retention;
  • Applying improvisational discovery to keep participants engaged;
  • Mapping the big picture, solving problems and innovating as a team;
  • Creating visual meeting artifacts to drive decisions forward.
You don’t need to be a rocket scientist or an artist of any caliber to learn how to design and lead better meetings. In this day-long workshop, you’ll learn the fundamentals of visual language, how to illuminate complexities by mapping the big picture and how to use improvisation and games to innovate and solve real problems. At the end of the workshop you’ll feel more confident about using visualization in meetings and you’ll recognize the power of doing so. So let the games begin!
OBJECTIVES: Upon completion of this workshop, learners will be able to:
  • Recognize when to have a meeting (and when not to);
  • Design meeting agendas that move a group to a desired outcome;
  • Use games to support innovation and creative problem-solving;
  • Leverage techniques that lead to co-creation and team solutions;
  • Lead meetings, workshops, and group sessions comfortably using visual thinking and basic office supplies.
  • ...
