2018 Beyond the Basics: Graphic Facilitation Workshop

Beyond the Basics with Graphic Facilitation with Sophia Liang and Sam Bradd returns, this time in Portland, Oregon in February 2018.

The graphic facilitation and graphic field is booming – are you getting the work you want?

Sophia and Sam designed this course to teach what they wish someone had taught them when they started out as graphic facilitators.

Experts say, in order to scale your business, practitioners need to do two things: be better, or be different. We’ll help you explore what expanding and diversifying your offering looks like for you. We’ll also offer models and tools for deepening your practice. And throughout, we’ll share how we got paid to do the work we love.

  • Designed for visual practitioners with 2+ years experience, a firm grasp on fundamentals and a desire to stretch your potential. This fast-paced and participatory workshop includes two days of training and an evening opening session.
  • Every workshop is customized to meet participants’ goals. We’ll use storytelling, presentations, hands-on practice, group dialogue, and a peer learning environment.
  • Passionate about continuous improvement and learning, Sophia and Sam bring facilitation techniques, a balance of theory and practice, years of business experience, and new visual tools to take your career to the next level.
