Biography

Multimedia can be provided for any of our programs or we can support your own or a combination of both. Dr Donna's presentations make effective use of graphic facilitation.  These charts and large graphic worksheets are powerful and motivational.  They build team co-creation and participation.  Having captured the dynamics of participants thoughts and dreams, they are frequently rolled-out long after the actual workshop in refresher meetings where they continue to remind and inspire the participants. 

Examples of graphic facilitation charts used in many follow-up meetings:
