bikablo – Visual Facilitation

Last week I was fortunate enough to participate in 2 days of bikablo training with Marcel van Hove.

What is bikablo?
Well as Marcel has kindly put on his website – It’s an easy to learn visual facilitation technique that helps you to facilitate meetings and workshops. You don’t need any drawing skills and after the training you will be ready to rock and draw your own awesome flipcharts and facilitate meetings! … and I can echo that and have begun putting it into practice.

Going into the training most of the group I was in (11 people) didn’t think that they could draw, but by the end of the 2 days we were all drawing and story telling using the techniques we had learnt.

One of the key takeaways for me was not only being able to use bikablo in team meetings, ceremonies and workshops but also to help bring out story boards and program walls to life.

If you’re interested in the training and I highly recommend it reach out to Marcel van Hove via his website – http://www.marcelvanhove.com/

    Interesting. I was at a workshop earlier this week where they did a fair bit of drawing and writing on whiteboards to capture the info, but with a bit of colour and creativity. It was good, though I did note that the people doing it had much better drawing and handwriting skills than me!
