My Graphic Facilitation Journey

Last week I attended a 2-day graphic facilitation training at The Hub Amsterdam with Bigger Picture from Denmark. This is the agenda of that training. Since these 2 days, I can’t stop drawing things, I read through the whole Back of the Napkin and I started with Visual Meetings by David Sibbet (who is one of the pioneers of visual facilitation and the founder of The Grove).

One that I can really recommend is Visual Loop – a blog that is “all about visualizing the world … and beyond”.
