Emer O’Leary introduces the Secrets of Simple Graphics

Communicate with impact using the power of hand drawn visuals

[content_box_light_blue width=”75%”]Emer is great to work with. She has been delivering Secrets of Simple Graphics training for PBB Transformation since September 2015. This training involves the use of hand drawn graphics for facilitation and presentation purposes. We had identified a strong need to equip team members with new and innovative ways of communicating and presenting their work. Emer designed a course to perfectly meet these requirements. We get consistent positive feedback from delegates who enjoy both Emer’s facilitation style and the course content. Delegates get an opportunity to plan how to use graphics in their day to day communication. This has worked well in terms future planning and embedding the learning in the workplace. I would not hesitate to recommend Emer’s services for organisations seeking to explore visual ways of working.

Emer O’Leary is a fantastic trainer who is very passionate about this. The pace of training over two days was just right, covering basic Graphic Facilitation techniques. If you are considering Graphic Facilitation as an option I’d definitely recommend Emer as a trainer.’

[content_box_light_blue width=”75%”]’Fun, energetic, well-paced, interactive with much supportive learning, Emer’s practical workshop has inspired me to unashamedly introduce graphics to my workshops.

Emer gently challenged and cajoled the lively group to try it out for ourselves and experiment with drawing and colouring techniques.  I also enjoyed taking away the Mindful Focus on Palm exercise which I have used with delegates since Emer’s workshop.

I felt Emer was very inclusive with the group and dealt with the more vocal delegates calmly, encouraging the quieter delegates to feel included and listened to.  I loved the simplicity of pen on paper and have noticed how effective that is becoming for me.

All in all, I recommend this workshop to inspire creative training; note taking and to challenge people to stretch out with those self-defined comfort zones!

We invited Emer to run a taster session for us in graphic facilitation and we had fun, laughed, and not once did any of us feel we couldn’t draw! Emer immediately puts you at ease, introducing you to both herself and the topic in an engaging manner. Emer’s workshops are lively, interactive and build your skills as a group. The team left energised and I’m looking forward to seeing the results in training rooms soon! I look forward to working with Emer again soon.’
