Faster Glass, Charlotte NC
While we might agree "a picture is worth 1,000 words", most default to using words to convey ideas. When engaging others into your vision, there can be a communication breakdown if you rely on words alone. Then we wonder why "they" didn't get it.
David's workshop will help you understand how utilizing the principles of visual thinking, and put them into practice to have a massive impact on your ability to communicate. These techniques are even more valuable in a collaborative environment.
