What is the value of a visually literate workplace? What do we see & how does that inform how we think & operate?

Presented by www.imagineer.me

90% of all that we understand is visual. 50% of our brains are involved in visual processing, the brain processes visuals in 250 milliseconds - 60,000 times faster than text; yet how many of us are harnessing this skill for ourselves & for the development of the people we are responsible for educating & leading? What is the cost of not doing this?

One third of our brain, the visual cortex learns from experience, & self-organises its structure to process visual input resulting in cognition, personal association, questioning, speculating, analysing, fact-finding, categorising & decision making.

How we see, rather than what we see, determines our behaviour.

This workshop & networking breakfast will test your interpretation of the world around you. Examine your unconscious bias with visual tricks, optical illusions, selective focus, & discover how to use Subconscious Image Reinforcement (simR™) to change the way you communicate with and understand others: explore how differently others perceive the same image to form a comprehensive understanding of the need for visual literacy in the development of human potential & how vital it is in nurturing a more diverse & inclusive environment.

Experience a shift in perception, be prepared to learn yourself more accurately while opening to the missing piece in effective communications in the workplace & your relationship with self & others.

If you are interested in learning how the brain utilises visual information to create meaning, or want to understand how to use visual literacy to inform, develop & engage the workplace, if you want to develop better connections & enhance communication this is the event for you.

This event is targeted for Learning & Development, Organisational Development & People Culture & Change professionals & those at the cutting edge of educational progress & human potential.

Visual language skills and visioning helps organisations and individuals create desired futures, and engage in bringing about positive and predetermined change. Learning to make thoughts visible, and create the Synergy for meaningful conversation, critical thinking & self awareness brings insights & new ideas into sharper focus.

Your speaker Kelly-Ann Denton has been guiding institutions including universities, government, not for profit, and international corporations as well as individuals in this very discipline for over 15 years.
