As you learn about networks and key concepts such as relationship building and innovation, it can be helpful to embrace creativity in your work, even if – especially if – your job and organization may not be known as a creative space or place.
Join Sunni Brown, best-selling author and global “infodoodler” to unlock your native capacity to create and apply visual language for thinking and problem-solving.
This session will take you from the basics of visual language to a form of rapid visual thinking that supports the creativity and effective communication you will use as a networked, collaborative professional. Additional benefits include enhanced learning and comprehension, memory, and concentration!
Use “infodoodling” to learn more effectively, activate insights, and clarify complexity. Information visualization helps you explore your work and world in an entirely different way. Skeptics, non-artists, and people who don’t identify as creatives will fit right in.
