Silver Springs Hotel, Cork

Even when you believe you have no artistic talent – this is where you learn the basic visual vocabulary and ingredients for visualisation with the bikablo® technique. For example, drawing simple flipchart templates that you can use in your work the next day!

What’s more, you will have WorkVisible’s Francesco Bianchi as your trainer to boost your learning in the room! For the first time, WorkVisible are coming to Cork to provide you with a first class in-person bikablo learning experience. You don't want to miss this!

What to expect in our one-day visual facilitation training?

Francesco will conduct the bikablo basics one-day-training-format, focusing on learning the bikablo visualisation technique. Whatever your experience in visual thinking, you are warmly welcome!

No matter how small or big your talent or experience, you will learn how to use small details to make large spaces look clear, attractive, and lively. Throughout the day Francesco will take plenty of time to answer your questions and guide you into the world of visual language with guidance and techniques suited to fit your individual progress.

What does this mean in practice? We'll cover the following topics:

Holding the pen and drawing the line: How do I draw clean lines and structure my space on the flipchart?

Graphics and text containers: How do I create simple arrows and connecting elements from basic geometric shapes in order to present related topics? Which text containers (e.g. speech bubbles) can be used to support which kinds of messages? Objects and symbols: How do I draw simple symbols to underline messages? What is essential, what can be left out?

People: What easy ways do bikablo® provide to draw people, roles, groups and situations?

Colour and space: What are simple and fast options to colour elements and spaces in a quick and simple way that supports the graphic structure?

You’ll also receive the gifts below as part of the training:

bikablo® Starterset: Every participant receives the official bikablo StarterSet including four visualisation markers and one Starter Booklet that summarises the principles, content and techniques of the training on 64 pages. So you can start using them as soon as you're back from the training!

Documentation: For your follow-up, you will receive a digital photo documentation of all results.
