Can you really draw your way to success? Heather Willems and Nora Herting will prove you can in this work shop where they explain the secret power of visuals for achieving your goals in the workplace. Heather and Nora will offer techniques to harness your creativity and master success using nothing more than your basic drawing skills. Learn how to clarify complex ideas, spark creativity, solve problems and propel your productivity to the next level - all from picking up a pen.

Join Heather Willems and Nora Herting, co-founders of ImageThink and co-authors of Draw Your Big Idea, for a workshop and reception hosted by the Strategic Communication Program at Columbia University’s School of Professional Studies.

About the Speakers
Heather Willems and Nora Herting are the co-founders of ImageThink. They built a multimillion dollar business from a drawing on the back of a paper napkin. Friends in art school, they had an epiphany one day and decided to launch a business help top executives operate more efficiently through visuals.

Now, these two women are revolutionizing the way we learn and transform ideas. A recent list of international clients include AOL, SXSW, FedEx, Google, TEDx, Lego, Tory Burch Sport, and more. Their team includes 13 full-time staff working out of New York City and San Francisco.

After 10 years of witnessing breakthroughs with their clients, they wanted to help more people visualize and achieve their goals. So they packaged all their best lessons from the last 10 years and put them into their brand new book, Draw Your Big Idea (Chronicle).

Presented by the Master of Science in Strategic Communications program at Columbia University, Strategic Communication Workshops are free and open to the general public. Each includes networking with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. Registration is required.
