My shortest definition of visual empathy is
“a visually attuned expression or response, expressed with the intention to deepen our understanding and create connection.”

Organizations already working with me

Does your staff get across WHAT MATTERS?

Flipcharts, digital presentations, training & coaching maps, and visual summaries of webinars, conferences, and strategic directions, are all tools to mediate between the speaker and the listener.

These visual tools help everyone see and understand the meaning, possibilities and impact of what is being addressed beyond what the audience understands verbally. All it takes for the trainers and leaders in your organization, is to visually attune to the audience.

What can your organization do to visually attune to your audience?

Visual Empathy Trainer and Coach

◉ Graphic Recorder, Illustrator, Designer

◉ Conflict Coach & Mediator

Learning organizations and training & development departments hire me to visually empower the communication strategies of their organization and/or train their staff in visual communication & presentation skills, so that more connection and interaction is established and the subject matter can be learned and understood with ease and pleasure.

“Our visual voice matters because the visual empathy we express with it, leads to shared understanding and helps us attune to the audience we communicate with.”

Valuing Empathy

I believe we experience more harmony in our communication and have more synergy in collaborations when we get on the same page with ease. Empathic communication is incredibly powerful in creating connection and emotional wellbeing. It helps us establish and maintain trust in our relationships and learning experiences. 

Visual Voice, Expression & Inclusion

The element that is frequently missing in our communication, is the expression of our visual voice. Most people who could have taught us in the past how to express ourselves visually, didn’t have the skills themselves. The systemic construct of many parts of our society uses communication and educational approaches that in general don’t stimulate empathy and visual expression in our communication and/or are hardly visually inclusive in learning environments.

Visual Empathy

My years of experience in the field of visual communication as a design department leader stimulated me to learn and integrate empathy in my work. For the past ten years I have been intensively trained in Nonviolent Communication (NVC), and NVC based mediation and conflict coaching. In my Visual Empathy Courses I bring these two fields together because I experience how much empathy helps us understand the audience we communicate with and how visual expression increases the efficacy of training and development activities. This increases both the relevance as the impact of learning experiences.

To articulate the essential skill participants develop through my courses, I came up with the term ‘Visual Empathy’. I define it as ‘the visually attuned expression of our understanding, expressed with the intention to create connection with ourselves and others’.
