Why Learn Visual Thinking Skills?
The word 'creativity' is often associated with artistic professionals such as entertainers, artists, photographers and other. However, creativity is particularly important in the current fast paced world of digital disruption. It is essential to the process of innovation and the generation of new ideas. In fact it has been named as the 5th must have soft skill for the future according to the World Economic Forum. Humans have been using creative skills to communicate with each other for thousands of years - the first known cave paintings date back 65,000 years. But as we transition from childhood to adulthood, many of us lose our confidence in drawing. Let us help you rebuild that confidence with proven techniques that will help you create impact in your next business meeting or presentation.
