Workshops, Trainings, and Presentations

Julia-Reich-Sketchnoting-Workshop-CentricIndiana-Launch Terre Haute.jpg

Here are just a few topics around Visual Thinking, Visual Communication, Visual Practice, and Brand Strategy that I’ve delivered as workshops, trainings and other presentations. Custom experiences for your group (and one-on-one, for consultants and other professionals) are happily developed.

I found your presentation useful, reinforcing, and inspiring — Useful in that it provided an organized approach to assessing a Brand’s meaning, purpose, and value. Reinforcing in that when I thought of our Brand, many of the questions you asked were answerable in the affirmative! Inspiring in that many of the questions asked were “oh, yes, we should know that and/or do that” reminders — creating a to do list — for which I am grateful.”

Drawing icons as part of Visual Thinking 101

→ Visual Meetings / Visual Language

Have you ever sat through a boring, ineffective meeting or tried to run a meeting where people were tuned out? Of course you have! People can only absorb and retain so much information. But just imagine, what if meetings were fun and productive instead? You don’t need to be a graphic designer or illustrator, either – anyone can master these creative drawing techniques. Our tools are simple, too: a large piece of paper, colorful markers, sticky notes and worksheets (provided).

sketchnoting workshop with Julia Reich of Stone Soup Creative

For students: Have you ever been in a lecture or class and thought: I really love this content and want to remember it, to make sense of this information in a way that is meaningful ? If you’d  like to learn how to capture the themes and big ideas you’re hearing, without writing every word, this workshop will teach you hands-on sketchnoting techniques.

For teachers: sketchnoting allows students to see the bigger picture in the concepts they are studying, make connections in their learning, and display their learning process—and all of that leads to better retention.
