I've made another video - this time it's one where you actually see my face! I hope you like it. I'm on a mission to get more comfortable with creating videos (I find it strange not having an audience!) so I'd love to hear what you think and what tips you have for...

A fun icebreaker for you to try

Icebreakers for virtual training  - what's the verdict? In my opinion, it's even more important to have an icebreaker for a virtual training session than it is for an in person one. Why? When we partake in virtual learning sessions we miss out on the in person chit...

Hi, I'm Emer

I empower my clients to use simple hand drawn graphics to transform the way they communicate and do business.

I am an advocate not just of visual thinking but of BIG visual thinking to unlock creativity, stimulate critical thinking and generate ideas.

I was first introduced to this world back in 2002 when working for a disability organisation…

Using simple graphics has helped focus the initial sales meetings so much that we went from concept to full proposal in less than an hour. 

Emer – the first meeting was scheduled with a C-level exec for 45 minutes – he agreed and asked for the formal proposal submission in 17 minutes.

The second with a CIO – went from skeptic to sign off in 25 minutes and a third with a Director went from “welcome” to “can we have three proposals in 22 minutes”.

A public sector Business Improvement Board meeting approved a POC in 40 minutes.

It’s powerful stuff !
