Scribing, or graphic facilitation, isn’t just the art of drawing pretty pictures – scribing can be magical.  It has the power to transform the way you work, think and interact.

Join us for an evening where conversation turns into illustration.  We’ll take you through the art of scribing looking at what it is, how it works and most importantly why it’s good for you.  Come meet the artists who bring ideas to life.
