Bring your ideas to life with bikablo technique that make them pop.
Visualisation makes content and process visible in real time. In presentations, workshops, coaching sessions, training and meetings - whenever people engage in dialogue, are working together and want to learn from each other in an impactful way - the bikablo® technique opens the door to the world of visual thinking and dialogue.
Irrespective of your artistic talent, you will learn visual language that you can use for notes in small formats as well as for flip charts and pin boards.
Bikablo is a visual language & drawing technique developed and refined in Germany by Martin Hausmann over 15 years. The Bikablo technique uses German rigour in its step by step process, clear rules and easy to follow method. This systematic technique allows people who cannot draw learn how to in a day.
Research has shown that Powerpoint presentations are not able to keep the focus and attention while Bikablo gives you the tools to create engagement, participation and dialogue.
The Bikablo visualisation technique helps you to structure and present ideas and explain strategies and processes simply. It also increases participation in team discussions as it is more inclusive with everyone being able to see their contribution in real time.
This results in a visual record which is clear, attractive, creates a common understanding which is easy to recall.

What our past participants said:
"I highly recommend this workshop to anyone who wants to illustrate ideas with pictures: facilitators, coaches, trainers... Step by step, Marcel will teach you simple yet effective techniques to draw building blocks like titles, concepts or people. Then you'll learn how to combine them in order to achieve more complex activities like story telling or live visual recording. Coming from a "I can't draw" background, I was amazed at what I managed to draw after 2 days only!" Sylvain Mahe, Agile Coach

We understand our customers' needs clearly and shorten the sales cycles. I highly recommend this training and welcome you to the world of visuals." Angela Tan, IT Consultant
