Run Secrets of Simple Graphics or its sister course Visual Thinking for Business inhouse for your organisation.
'The OB Loch Eil Centre team were delighted to work with Emer O'Leary during our staff training week. Our mission was to explore how we could use simple graphics to enhance our practice with young people. The progress was fantastic and I will be excited to see the impact of this work.

The course with Emer gave us space to practice, experiment and play with a variety of approaches and styles. The images are of our staff content during the course.

A great day of considering and thinking about how we frame the OB experience and add quality into reviewing the learning. 🙏👏'

David Exeter, Head of Centre at Outward Bound Trust, Loch Eil Centre

'Emer's training is really good and has inspired staff to look at things differently in meetings and development sessions. We are using graphic facilitation with schools and nurseries to engage staff and parents in improvement planning and when developing visions and aims.
The graphic displays help to make it accessible to parents and young people and provides opportunities for the work to be added to in the future to record progress.
It has helped us to move on from a 'death by Powerpoint' culture!

'Emer's infectious enthusiasm leaves me feeling inspired every time I do one of her courses. I recently attended her Draw out Your Future course. It was a fabulous six weeks.

I learned a lot, got to play about with drawings, and be supported and encouraged by an amazing group of like-minded individuals. Goals I never knew I had appeared from the sea of infinite possibilities! I did her Secrets of Simple Graphics course a couple of years ago and it changed the way I write, teach and train. She makes everything so fun and accessible. Just brilliant.'

Emily Bryson, ELT Materials Writer

'I enjoyed the course a lot, I think what I liked the most was the dynamic of it and how comfortable I felt openly speaking about my
feelings with the other attendees.
I learned many new ways to achieve my goals, and more specifically,
I will definitely use techniques such as the graphical action plans, since that has already served as an improvement towards my goals.
Other changes is to journal every day to keep track and be able to look back in the future.'
