CREATIVITY AND VISUAL NOTES
We all have stories to tell, and visual notes can help students and professionals communicate their visual stories in a way that better resonates with people and can make a difference in their career. In this experiential session, participants will get to practice the basics of visual notes and will turn an idea into a visual story. I will describe and demonstrate the powers of visual thinking and give participants the space to try some hands-on exercises, ask questions and hopefully get over some creative blocks we all carry. The session will end with some examples of how visual notes can be used in our day to day, so they can change the way they study, the way they work and the way they tell their story.
ENGAGING PRESENTATIONS WITH PPT
We can keep using the same tools but change the way we use them and how we present so our content becomes more engaging and we are able to keep participants attention for a longer period of time. In this session, we will explore different ways to co-create content during a presentation, how to use visuals and how to structure and present stories.
