Would you like more ease preparing materials for trainings, workshops or meetings? Would you like more focus, energy, and enjoyment before, during, and after making presentations? Are you wanting to bring effectiveness and creativity to promoting your work? Are you wanting better ways to stay connected with your audience once your time together is over?
In this workshop you will learn to create and integrate visual aids into your presentations to communicate with beauty and create learning that lasts.
”With Mireille’s guidance I was able to listen and express myself with a clarity and depth of understanding that was creative, transformational, life enriching and joyful. All I learned in 10 short hours will be so useful and clarifying, enriching and deepening the courses I teach and the groups I facilitate.”
Linda Hill, PhD, Inclusive Leadership Co-Founder, Vancouver Island, Canada

My love for visual expression was nurtured by my first teachers in Waldorf school, my high school art teacher, and later during my studies at the Willem de Kooning Academy in Rotterdam. Creating images through visual thinking is a skill I developed to make sense of my own inner world and to understand others. Visual language has become one of the easiest ways for me to deeply connect.
Since 2012, I’ve had over 640 hours of training in Nonviolent Communication from a variety of trainers on three continents, in addition to following other paths of personal and professional development. In that time I experienced a wide range of facilitation and didactic styles. From many conversations with trainers across different fields, I learned that educators often struggle to meet the needs of visual learners, and, despite their best efforts, many workshop participants are often unable to integrate some of the most valuable content.
My work helps make sure that the energy and resources people put into making a difference doesn’t go to waste, and that trainings reach the depth of learning and contribution that is possible.
