The Art of Paying Attention

Clients who have extremely high standards engage Stina.

Stina’s work in 2015 includes 3 main focus areas:

Teaching and Training:
Speaking in Pictures Saturday September 26, Sunday September 27 @UBC
Back by popular demand! Visual language for professionals, facilitators, planning and engagement specialists, and anyone interested in developing this highly flexible and valuable skillset. We all, to some extent, think in pictures – but we hardly ever speak in pictures. This course sets the stage to change that. Participants will be introduced to the skills that support speaking in pictures including: a brief historical context, benefits, learning styles, left and right brain thinking, listening, drawing while you listen, presence, composition and structure (visual grammar), color, your own customized visual language library, etc.. This experiential course is designed with multiple learning and social styles in mind. There is no artistic ability pre-requisite for the course and you will leave (even a 1 day course) with significant skills improvement.
Register NOW for September 26-27.
