Visual Notes is one of the terms used for notes that are more visual than normal notes. They are also known as graphic recording, graphic harvesting, sketch notes and are also used with visual facilitation (visual meeting). It's a visual translation of information. It is what your brain likes best if you want to make a better connection with the information provided!
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.
Yes you can draw. You have been doing it for years and years. You started when you were very young! You just stopped believing you can draw. In the academy section we offer a one day training and other educational products. So you can get acquainted again, with your own style. Ugly or neat, precise or radical, beautiful or bold! Whatever your style is .... You've got what it takes!

Visual Academy – Back to the drawing board
Yes you can draw. You have been doing it for years and years. You started when you were very young! And you liked it. Now you don't like it anymore. You stopped believing you can draw. Because someone told you "it's not beautiful" or you started saying "I can not draw" when you pick up a pencil and draw something to convey a message to somebody else.

"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."
