This colorful, offbeat business guide—sort of THINKERTOYS meets SARK—shows how to add zip, interaction, and excitement to just about any kind of meeting or presentation. The author has helped everyone from engineers to corporate planners create stunning visual presentations, showing them how to use visual symbols and color to map out ideas, plans, projections, and the like. Even if you can't draw a straight line, this book will have you doodling away like a pro in no time flat, and turning the most boring planning sessions into whiz-bang think tanks. Even the most pinstriped project teams have found these tools useful when mapping out strategic plans, capturing vision sessions, depicting project designs, or making training programs fun and memorable. Real-life success stories and step-by-step drawing hints make this the must-have book for managers, facilitators, trainers, and anyone who helps groups work together.

Review:

The purpose of this book is to demonstrate in easy, concrete steps that anyone can draw well enough to enhance his or her communication skills. Milly Sonneman takes you through initially simple and then progressively more advanced steps that can teach any person, in spite of self-doubts, how to make compelling drawings that will clarify ideas and make them more interesting. Sonneman stresses that your body already knows how to draw and teaches you how to listen to it and learn. This is a fantastic book for teachers, for people who do business presentations, and for anybody who wants to draw for the fun of it!

About the Author:
