The Power of Visual Leadership

With Guest Speaker:

Todd Cherches

CEO and Co-Founder of BigBlueGumball

BigBlueGumball is a NYC-based professional development firm dedicated to helping organizations and their people turn ideas into actions…and actions into results.  How do they do it? By leveraging their patented learning methodology whose mission can best be described by these three key words: Educate, Engage, and Excite!TM   And at the foundation of what  they do is something they call VisuaLeadership.®

VisuaLeadership® is the art and science of applying visual thinking and visual communication tools, tips, and techniques to manage and lead yourself – and your people – to new heights.  So, if a picture is worth a thousand words, then leveraging the power of visuals will enable and empower you to become a more innovative and effective thinker, communicator, and leader.

In this fun, fast-paced and interactive dinner workshop, you will explore the following to enhance your effectiveness:

·         Visual imagery

·         Metaphor/Analogy

·         Visual storytelling

Todd is engaging, entertaining, and enlightening!
