  • Do you know what Elon Musk and Jeff Besos have in common?

  • Not only the fact that they are both millionaires or they are both interested in conquering space.

    They both forbid their employees to use boring PowerPoints in meetings.

    And they are right!

    Boring slides full of bullet points significantly reduce the impact of your meeting.

  • To attract the attention of your audience you need a strong story supported with great visuals

  • Communicating effectively and inspiring & convincing others are two critical competencies of the Ambits Leadership Guide (level 2: leading the others).

    Storytelling is a tool that great leaders must master.

    Images, specifically drawings, attract people's attention and are easily remembered by our brains.

    They make your stories clear and unforgettable for your audience.

  • But I can't draw!

  • In this 90 minutes online workshop, you will learn how to build a great visual story in 5 steps without being a drawing talent.

    Compose stunning visuals by selecting world-class illustrations from the Drawify library.

    Axelle Vanquaillie introduces you to the world of Drawify.

    When? 8th March 2022 (12.00 - 13.30)
