Express yourself clearly – Draw it!

Members only

For our final event of 2019, we chose to let our participants do some work and have fun.

Visual Presentations 40 Small
Ann Ponnet

Don't draw, visualise!

Did you know that 70% of people remember what they see and do? We put that to practise.

Dirk and Peter showed us that by visualising you make things more clear and less complex. People remember visuals better than words, and this no other in our work environment. Use post-its, colour or visualisations to create a bigger impact during presentations, meetings, etc.

We got some good tips to help us on our way, and we even managed to draw our very own rock concert! Ann Ponnet made her visualisation of the session.

Tips & tricks

  • Word and PowerPoint have a whole library of icons you can use! Go to 'Insert' and click on 'Icons'
  • Want to visualise something, but no idea how to draw it? Search 'picto' or 'icon' and the term you're looking for
  • has entire sets of icons you can download (or simply search for a specific one)


Because you have to steal like an artist, we give you some examples of books and other interesting links. Have a look in the Related tab and get inspired.

For those who want more visuals instead of words, head over to the Pictures tab!
