3 Must Have Flipcharts for Every Meeting

May 09, 2018

WELCOME to Whiteboard Wednesday. We are so glad you're here!

We want to help you UNLOCK AWESOME at WORK, and today we're sharing some essential flipcharts that can make any meeting more successful.

Our online workshops and corporate trainings are showing facilitators, teams and leaders how to harness the POWER of the PEN!

For over twenty years, we have worked with companies large and small as innovation strategists. We have seen company cultures elevated, leaders promoted and literally millions of dollars saved by using the power of the pen to capture & refine ideas at the whiteboard.

Gone are the days when leaders will succeed by standing at the back of the room with arms crossed while their teams present ideas, and they secretly hold the veto card in their back pocket.
