Visual Collaboration

We believe that hand-drawn visualisations can open up people’s hearts and transform your company culture to become more collaborative. The reason is that visualisations change the way people interact with each other. Every whiteboard drawing is not only a document but also a personal interpretation of the challenge at hand. On this level, people interact on a more meaningful level with each other.

What our students say
The on-line training was a fantastic introduction to the world of visual facilitation. Danny was a great trainer, willing to share and very encouraging. On-line learning can be hard to deliver, but he did an exceptional job in making it as interactive as possible - the two days were very valuable and very enjoyable!
Toni Duka
Consultant
Fantastic course, lots of fun and not like anything else I had done. I am looking forward to applying my new skills at work.
Josef Bourke
Director (Customer and Business Solutions) at Department of Transport and Main Roads
I recently attended the online visualisation course with visual friends. The training is amazing! Danny was really encouraging, helping me realise anyone can draw. This course is already helping me communicate clearer. Not only is it helping with my work presentations, it's also become standard with capturing notes. I've found I'm now absorbing more information with less writing, whether it's note taking from meetings or while listening to podcasts. I highly recommend this course.
Lucy Chong
Synergy (Electricity Generation and Retail Corporation)
I absolutely loved the class and would highly recommend the visualisation training to anyone wanting to visually bring their ideas to life and take their communication skills to the next level!
Maggie Rowlands
Change Chapter Lead at Synergy (Electricity Generation and Retail Corporation)
The Visual Facilitation course was engaging, informative, and so much fun! Having extensive art experience already, I still found so much value in attending the course and gained so many new skills to add to my facilitation toolbox. The course has shown me how I can create an engaging story and capture large chunks of information in a simplistic and streamlined way. This course will be perfect for anyone who is looking at innovative, experiential ways of facilitating. Danny is a brilliant facilitator and kept everyone engaged throughout the 2 days – couldn’t recommend it enough!
Aalia Sahib
Learning And Development Specialist at AA Insurance NZ
Danny's class was so valuable for me in my L&D role. I learnt a lot of new skills to enhance my communication in the training or meeting room. It was a lot of fun and a great reminder that visualisation is very powerful.
Melanie Pryde
Senior Learning and Development Specialist at Synergy (Electricity Generation and Retail Corporation)
"Recently I attended the two day Visual Facilitation training - for someone like me who previously drew very little, this training was a godsend! Not only did it uplift my confidence in drawing, the training also gave me various tools and techniques that I could easily practise and use in my facilitation sessions. There were also several reference books suggested for further enrichment of drawing and visual facilitation skills. The pace of the course over the two days was even and the facilitators certainly made it interesting with some fun group activities. Overall, I would highly recommend this training course for anyone that is involved with facilitation – be it as a facilitator or as a participant."

With his extraordinary facilitation skills Marcel will include you in the program and guide you to greatness as if you were the only person in the room - cannot recommend this program or Marcel highly enough - thank you! thank you!

"I sent one of my team Alan Kurrle on the visualisation course recently. To say I was pleased with his learning would be the understatement of 2018. Would strongly recommend to those in your team that love facilitation - it’s already brought so much more life and animation to our team and beyond Epworth."

"I've attended a one day workshop with Marcel a couple of months ago and I'm glad I did. In one single day I've learnt the basic techniques of visual facilitation in a clever, relaxed and fun manner thanks to Marcel great people and technical skills. Since then I had to pleasure to apply the knowledge acquired at my role at AGL and make my role more fun, creativity and engaging to myself and my stakeholders. Such a good investment of my time, energy and money! Thanks Marcel. Please keep up sharing this amazing tool for a better corporate world."
Nathalie Heynderickx

"The best course I have ever done. Every business should send their people, since attending the course I use my visualisation skills in my daily work as well as at home with my kids. It is amazing how senior executives and kids can all relate to and love my drawings! Going into the course I thought I couldn’t draw… I couldn’t believe what Marc got me to do in the first 2 hours, this course is for everyone!"

"Marcel is an excellent, generous and talented trainer and facilitator. I had the pleasure of attending his course and was able to add value at work straight away by using it in retrospectives, team purpose facilitation, inception workshops and initiative launches. I can highly recommend Marcel's rich knowledge and experience in this field and his ability to teach and mentor others to become excellent Visual Facilitators."
Christiane Anderson

"Marcel's Visual Facilitation course was a great experience! The techniques he uses are amazing because they enable anyone to draw eye-catching pictures without being able to actually draw previously. Marcel was a great teacher, with attention to detail and a passion for artistic excellence. Highly recommend this course to any Facilitator."

"In just over a minute, our new video clearly communicates a business model many of us have struggled to explain for years! Marcel was fun to work with, and helpful in turning our receptionist into our voice over girl. So much so that she may consider leaving us for a new career. Good one Marcel."

"Marcel has a strong focus on delivering great quality of work. I must say, it's been a pleasure working with Marcel on a project to deliver an MYOB animated video, where our top of mind was to engage my audience and help them understand why our product could benefit them. With Marcel's expertise and easy going work ethic, it's amazing how fast he can deliver flawless work. I didn't even need a revision, great work and I look forward to working with Marcel in the near future."
