==== Charles-Louis de Maere ====
Bringing people together is something that lives on through my workshops and training. Whether they take place online or on-premise, I facilitate workshops and learning experiences that focus on high participation, on learning by doing and verifying that the concepts are integrated. I use Live Online Learning Activities to ensure people get a chance to practice their understanding of the new concepts.

What better way is there to give meaning to what we say than to draw to make our thoughts explicit? When we add visual information to what we’re saying, suddenly our intention becomes much more precise, and we can begin to work on shared understanding. This is why I love bringing people in contact with the power of Visual Thinking, of getting back to our roots and using pen and paper to bring people closer together.

October 27 Day 1 - Workshops

Collaborative story creation experiment

This practical, collaborative workshop will have participants practice their co-creative storytelling skills together using a variety of formats proposed by the facilitators. Throughout the workshop, we will also learn how to apply this in the organisational contexts of transformation, of teamwork and agile ways of working.
