‘I highly recommend Emer’s 6 week virtual simple graphics course. I’ve wanted to do this for a while but could never make the face-face days – this format enabled me to take part in a way that fitted around my other commitments. Emer is a superb facilitator, and takes you through a clearly structured process, whilst really building your confidence and courage to draw and to then share your drawings. I thoroughly enjoyed it and am now finding myself finding opportunities to use graphics whenever I can!‘

What you’ve said about Secrets of Simple Graphics…
Maggie Newton, Red Clematis Coaching Services Ltd
I’ve just completed Emer’s first online ‘Secrets of Simple Graphics’ course which I thoroughly enjoyed and learnt so much from. Emer is a very calm and engaging facilitator and made everyone feel at ease. I would thoroughly recommend working with her.
Rachel Weiss, Rowan Consultancy
I participated in Emer’s 6 week online Secrets of Simple Graphics course. It gave me skills and confidence to use hand-drawn graphics to enhance my training and coaching, both live in the room and as preprepared resources. Also, it was fun and I’ve gained a new hobby, drawing, and ditched my inner critic which told me I can’t draw. I can’t but it doesn’t matter so long as I get about 30% accuracy, people will recognise what I mean. Liberating!
Christine Morrison, CMA Training (UK) Ltd
I just completed my second course with Emer (this time the six-week online ‘Secrets of Simple Graphics) and it was equally fabulous. Emer is warm and friendly with a calm and engaging facilitation style. I met some great people too and it felt like a group of friends meeting up and learning something brilliant together. The structure and content were excellent. The online delivery (Zoom) worked so well and there was plenty of time to practise between sessions. I would love to take part in a follow-on course.
Beth Collier, Communications Creativity & Leadership Expert
If you are looking to improve your ability to draw simple graphics, I highly recommend you get in touch with Emer. She is a skilled illustrator and facilitator, has a lovely, helpful nature, and a true desire to help people learn. Over six weeks, I improved both my drawing skills and confidence. And best of all, I am having fun drawing again – which I haven’t felt for decades! Thank you, Emer!
