Visual meetings are meetings where visual aids are used. If you decide to have a meeting with a group of people to (co-) create, brainstorm, or just throw ideas around make it a Visual Meeting. This is also very easy to do. Step out of your normal use of sentences on flip charts and start using models, maps and other visual aids. Create highly interactive meetings by using visuals made by participants themselves.

"Prior to our meeting with the students and tutors of UCM and the Municipality managers, we met Wytze (for the first time) in a cafe on the terrace in Maastricht and we felt an instant connection. The afternoon work session with each other was one big flow and it was as if we had collaborated for many years. Wytze is instantly likable and very easy to work with. He can capture and visualize very complex, dynamic conversations in an effective way. At the same time, he adds a deeper layer to the visualization that we can only call the "Wytze-touch." Our experience was of the highest quality and we hope to work together again in the near future."
