Communicate effectively with images.

Do you regularly have to deliver thick, difficult to understand reports? Or do you take minutes that often end up in a drawer? In the Make your Visuals Work training (previously this was the Visual Communication Training) you develop more creative courage to convert a written story into a visual story, namely a ‘talking plate‘. For example, we delve into typography, separation elements, layout and the search for the balance between text and image.

Using a fictitious case study, you will learn to present the essence of a message quickly and effectively using your own skills and materials. This way you convey your story clearly, creatively and uniquely to your customers, colleagues or clients. Make an impact with a strong representation of your message on paper, flipchart or whiteboard!

This is an in-depth look at the training Business Drawing 1. The basic Business Drawing 1 training is recommended for following the Make your Talking Plate training.

What do you develop during this training?

During this training you will discover how to build a clear visual hierarchy and page structure.

You will gain knowledge about the different parts that make up a clear discussion board.

You will delve into typography, separation elements and setting up layouts.

And you look for the balance between text and image.

“By combining infographics with the thick reports we deliver every quarter, we can easily include everyone in the story!”
