All the nuggets and tips distilled from my best-selling public training program…

is NOW available to you at a time and place that suits you!

Seriously, I’ve had a lot of people do my course over the years who are emphatic that they can’t draw…

But using my Shape Plug-in method you can quickly and easily gain the necessary skills and confidence to be ready to ‘do it in public’ in no time!

And the best part is this method works like crazy no matter what field or sector you work in…

Even if you think it’s impossible for you to do this and have no clue where to start…

And even if you never considered yourself as ‘creative’ in any way…

The Essentials of Visual Thinking course awakens the visual thinker in you and allows you to naturally think and draw your ideas in an engaging way that *draws* others in…

And makes it FUN, EASY and LUCRATIVE to add graphic facilitation and recording skills to your professional toolkit, so much quicker than you previously thought possible…

I realise this might sound just a tad unbelievable – that this course can transform ANYONE into a sought-after Visual Thinker… Yet, I assure you it is possible…

How do I know it works so well?

Because I used it myself over the past decade to serve clients from all sectors and fields with these specialist services…

And I have also taught this material to literally hundreds of others in Australia and overseas who have used it to achieve incredible success with their new-found visual thinking and drawing ability…

Even people who were total newbies when it came to being ‘visual’!

Well, let’s face it, we are facing some daunting challenges in the world today.

I think about the big issues that affect many people in many countries including my own – unstable leadership, poverty and hardship – and some, like climate change and sea level rise, we are yet to see the full effects on island communities, our food crops and natural areas.

None of these are trivial and I could name more.

So, this has been a driver for me – I had to find what I could do to make a difference, in the face of all that.

And as Albert Einstein is famously quoted as saying:

We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.

That’s the rub for me.

I don’t believe we tap the potential we each have in us.

For lots of reasons, our schools and work-places have taught us a single mode of thinking and working. We are strongly influenced and coached to be rational and logical, as code for ‘being professional’.

Whether it’s a report, strategy or keynote speech, we give primacy to the power of talking and the written word. Those communication methods are good, but not to the exclusion of other more creative ways of working… like story… like imageslike stories told with images!

As human beings, we are wired with a huge capacity for innovation and creativity. But if we don’t use these natural capacities, we are not going to overcome the challenges we’re facing using old rules and out-dated ways of thinking.

That’s at the crux of what I’m passionate about…

…helping others who want to think differently and challenge the status quo…

…people who know there is more to them as individuals and want a way to unlock their creative thinking powers…

…people who are passionate about their work and are driven to make change in the world around them.

And do you know the good news?

Visual thinking isn’t just for artists!  

It’s a skill that can be learned… 

With the right tools and approaches… 

And that’s why I designed the Essential of Visual Thinking course – to help you Master the Skills, Boost Your Confidence and Skyrocket Your Results!

Here's some of the success stories...

I now have all the confidence I need...

Michelle has given me confidence through her tools, practices and the knowledge she has shared. I am just beginning my practice and it’s been great to have Michelle’s frameworks to anchor it at the start.

I appreciated the experiential nature of the course and the energy she generated. As a professional communicator, it has really opened my mind and I believe it will deepen my facilitation practice.

I'm so excited!

Michelle has given me an understanding of the tools and materials for my visual approach and how I can use these tools for my current work.

It’s been excellent.

I am very excited at the prospect of using the techniques I learnt from Michelle to communicate my research.

I can see REAL application of this work back at the office.

Doing this course, I learnt I can do it!

I just use the simple tools Michelle teaches.

And I also discovered it’s actually FUN to draw!

So, let me ask you...

What would it be worth to you to be able to ADD visual thinker, graphic facilitator and graphic recorder to your list of professional skills and services?

Keep in mind, people charge hundreds, even thousands of dollars per day for these services!

Personally, I think the professionally valued price of US$297 is a great deal for the entire 12-module course and 12 months access to all the online material.

After all, my one-on-one coaching clients pay me a minimum of $300+ per hour to access this exact same training material…

And if you attend a public course, you pay $495 to cover this material…

Even so, I know you might be thinking a $297 price-tag is out of your reach at the moment, and I can totally understand that…

And my mission is to support every person who is committed to gaining visual thinking skills… that’s why I want to make this course as affordable and accessible as I can…  

Which is why, today, you’re NOT going to pay $297 for The Essentials of Visual Thinking course…

For you today, because you are committed to realising your true capabilities, I am giving you my special price of…

…. just US$147!
