Mirja Pischel – Team Visual Facilitators
Graphic Recording, Strategic Visualization
I’m a graphic recorder for one simple reason: I know how your audience feels. When I first got started in the visual storytelling space, I was just a curious seminar participant – lots and lots of input, amazing ideas, innovative thoughts, and no strategy to remember it all.
I was living on OVERWHELM STREET, at the Intersection of FORGET-IT-ALL-THE-NEXT-DAY LANE – And it wasn’t cute.
I found it helpful to take written notes, but – in all seriousness – I quickly learned a hard lesson: I can try to follow along and write down word for word what the speaker says … but unless I know how to create something that provides a QUICK OVERVIEW OF THE MAIN IDEA … I’d never look at my notes again. And the key message (assuming I even happened to catch it) would get lost somewhere in that seventh half-completed notebook, under a pile of loose papers in the bottom left drawer.
Everything changed the very moment I discovered I’m a Visual Lerner and that graphics are the answer to many people’s (learning) problems.
Since then, I have worked with the brightest and most eloquent professionals and this is what I’ve noticed over and over again: As a trainer, speaker, coach, or manager you answer to a deeper calling and responsibility to share your knowledge with the world. But in order for it to be understood and ultimately proliferated by your audience, you want to ensure it’s accessible to them all: both the auditory AND visual learners.
I take your complex ideas, whittle them down to the core and create with your audience in mind.
By the way …
… with a degree in industrial engineering I’ve worked worldwide for corporations in the hospitality, recruiting or education business. This background allows me to quickly grasp even sophisticated content and connect the dots not just visually but logically. My heart beats especially for projects that involve creative problem solving, sustainability, NLP or NGOs.
English or German? You decide! Graphic Recordings and Business Illustrations are my main focus.
Super excited to be working with you soon!
