This is a 3½ minute introduction to our approach to Graphic Facilitation training. We deliver ½ day crash courses introducing to our methodology and helping you to rediscover how to use visualisation in meetings and processes. We also deliver a 3 modules course of 6 days intense training. Our trainging builds on 10+ years of experience in the filed and our own methodology. You will learn 7 basic elements of visualising processes and how to make them work together. You will discover your own visual language and become skilled at continously building it and finally you will learn how to use visual techniques and tools to facilitate groups toward shared understanding.
Every year Bigger Picture donates 10% of their profit to work with one or more projects around the world.
This year we decided to go to Jerusalem for four days and work with grassroots organisations training them in mastering the art of strategic engagement using visual thinking, visual process design, graphic facilitation and visual communication for them to use in their communities.

The Danish magazine Kommunikatøren has just published two articles about the work we do in Bigger Picture based on interviews with Ole and Loa.
In the article “Tegn din Vision” (Draw you vision) Loa explains how drawing the vision of your company or organisation can be a strategic tool in helping you making abstract concepts more tangible.
“De tegner mødet mellem mennesker” (They draw the meeting between people) is an article about event summaries and how it works as a process tool. Ole highlights how pen and paper create engagement amongst the people involved and how event summaries can serve as a strong communicational platform across cultures.
