I believe that everyone should be able to achieve success. Many times it requires thinking differently to see the way. So, I use visual thinking and graphic mapping to help others achieve their dreams, ideas, and plans.
Dream: Make them big, embrace your ideas.
See: Transform your intangible ideas into tangible plans and images that allow others to see your dreams and ideas.
Believe: When you have an idea that you and others can see, then everyone can begin to believe in the idea. As the saying goes, “Seeing is believing.”
Achieve: Everyone who believes in the dream or idea can help it become real.
Unique Tools: Through the use of interactive play, wordplay, and experimentation, teams can explore and discover unseen possibilities that can help shape any project.
“Kevin Dulle is one amazing talent! As I’ve seen many times, not only can he visually translate any discussion in real-time, but he can lead any group in thinking creatively and developing ideas. I’m in awe.”

How I help you engage your audience deeper
Some ideas are hard to verbally communicate. In your mind you have a very clear shape and look to your idea, but words have different meaning and conjure different ideas to each person who may hear those words. When you visually map an idea, especially if it is complex, people see exactly what you need them to see to understand.
A Visual Translation of ideas is a key function of making intangible and complex ideas tangible. They can also help shift from confusion and disbelief to clarity and believing in the idea. Belief in an idea can lead to achieving that idea with others.
Remember the last conference you attended, leadership meeting, or planning session you attended or even led? Chances are you spent mass amounts of time creating content, printing pages of handouts and planning guides only to discover no one remembers exactly what was covered or where they shelved the handouts and report.
The lack of engagement or over production of text material can quickly lead to idea disassociation or worse, lack of follow-through on important ideas, strategy or even interdepartmental relationship. Capturing conversations visually provides three major benefits that the traditional practices do not. First, the content is given contest in a quick and understandable format. Second, visual translation of a gathering shows how ideas and actions interconnect between people, departments or firms in a single page and not get lost in pages and pages of text.
Finally, and most importantly, visual translations create memory triggers to all those that were present days, weeks, and even months following the event. Imagery created during a gathering provide memory shortcuts to key issues presented without needing extensive written content. Our ability to remember is much greater when visual triggers can help unlock those memories and ideas.
Surveys are a limited if not useless method of getting information or insight from your attendees. Very few people like to take surveys, especially when they don’t address issues personal to them. CommunityWalls can. These visual walls capture attendees thoughts and are presented in a fun graphical form for all to see. The wall creates an event community that is engaging and insightful to the viewers and the the stager.
Using Community Walls allows attendees to express themselves about a key subject or the event in general. They share ideas, comments and impressions from the gathering that a survey would not know how to uncover if attendees actually responded to them.
Community Walls also provide a powerful tool for marketing that no marketing plan can create because it is created and shared by attendees at the event and through various social media channels willingly. No more pushing out of content, the attendees become the marketing engine with a direct connection to others with similar interests.
These type of visual recordings also provide the organizers with a powerful follow-up tool to see what really stuck in the minds of their attendees. Ideas that can help refine the next event. A key question on a community wall can unlock ideas and insights that attendees may not share in a traditional survey. Attendees feel connected at a deeper level. They feel that their ideas have value to the community. They are engaged and become part of the created collaborative content of the event. The wall makes it personal and inclusive.

Experience Design Workshop for the Non-Designer.
What’s a fUn-Workshop? It’s a staged interaction around experience design that will engage any business owner, entrepreneur, design teams, or experience designer on the creation or transformation of a business or event from a traditional delivery into an experience that becomes a destination for customer. It is based on a unique and easy-to-follow program called the ERY Method.
The method does not require you to be an experience designer, understand the nuances of the Experience Economy, or even have any design background. The fUn-Workshop is designed to engage people’s thinking in a playful and enjoyable progression which will help create an business that is a traditional delivery into an experience that creates greater value to the owner and the customer.
