Better late than never… We are now back in Copenhagen and here is a little recap from day 2 and 3 at the EuViz Conference in Berlin.
Day 2 was about expanding views and we all participated in several sessions to learn more about skills, methods, practice and get inspired. In the afternoon we continued sharing where we dove into stories together with David Sibbet.
On day 2 together with Loa I attended a session by Michelle Boos-Stone about Selling Clients Not Just Visuals, But a Powerful EXPERIENCE with Visuals. The session was about thinking out of the box to serve your clients and Rachel was so kind to share her experiences and knowledge with us.

Later same day Thomas, Loa and I were a part of a sessions by Barbara Siegel What they think when we draw. Neurocognition and Graphic Facilitation. This session was very much inspiring where Barbara talked about how viewers’ brains are processing visual information while we draw.

On Friday Day 3 it was time to visit one of the 5 tracks again. The day was also about exploring possibilities and connecting the last dots. We did open space sessions and everyone had the chance to add a topic or a burning question to the agenda.
On day 3 I was on track 1 MENTAL MODELS for ADVANCED VISUAL FACILITATION facilitated by David Sibbet and Rachel Smith. This track was about metaphors and mental models for systems and becoming aware of when and how we use them. Shortly after the track I interviewed Rachel Smith. Her key takeaway was that the diversity of perspectives really strengthened the discussions and the outcome was diversity in metaphors.

Meanwhile the rest of the Bigger Picture team facilitated track 3 EDUCATION, LEARNING & TRAINING. Together with the participants Bigger Picture brainstormed on how a future scenario for education, learning and training in the field of graphic facilitation could look like.
