Kelvy Bird, Heather Martinez and Brandy Agerbeck will travel to Europe to offer five wonderful workshops. Be there! But first, you will meet them live on our YouTube channel.

I’m not sure if they really come over from the US, sitting on a marker, but at least they have so many markers to show you what to do with them.
All of them are not only ambassadors for our products in the US, but also real pioneers in their field.

In the next few months they will show us their expertise here in Europe. Find out more.

All workshops will be held in English.
Before you flinch and think, “Oh dear, I’ll never grab that!”, I’d like to encourage you to sign up anyway.
Brandy, Kelvy and Heather will automatically reduce their speech rate when landing in Europe. They will also almost exclusively use visual elements in their workshops that makes it easy for you to understand them.

Meet Brandy, Kelvy and Heather in our livestreams! For free!

If you are not sure yet, then here are three appetizers for you, as all three introduce themselves with a special learning snack from their expertise in three live sessions for free.
Ask all your questions and take some small learning snacks for your work with you.

Meet Brandy, Kelvy and Heather and our social media correspondent Sandra Dirks live in our new live short workshop format. They show their expertises and Sandra facilitates these live sessions.
Come in, use the chat and draw with us.

The live sessions will be held in English!

The live sessions will be recorded and will be available on our Facebook page and on our YouTube channel afterwards, if you can’t make it live.

But before we start with the live sessions, we introduce you to Brandy, Kelvy and Heather.

Who is Brandy Agerbeck?

Brandy Agerbeck writes, speaks and teaches on the power of drawing as your best thinking tool.

In 2016, she celebrated 20 years as a graphic facilitator, mapping out her clients’ best complex conversations in live, large-scale drawings. In 2012, she published “The Graphic Facilitator’s Guide”. Her first book has been embraced by a global audience, and she’s considered a leader in the field of graphic facilitation.

While being the one person in the room drawing for a group is as gratifying as it is intense, Brandy now aims to help others embrace drawing for themselves to do their own best work, based on her second book “The Idea Shapers”.

Brandy lives in Chicago with a delightful fella and a usually-delightful cat. She delights travelling, crafting and watching spy movies. Please visit to learn more.

Neuland Anniversary Ambassador Tour Talk: Kelvy Bird – Levels of Scribing – An Overview

Levels of Scribing: An Overview
Kelvy will share a framework for levels of scribing

The levels of scribing we will explore include:
1) Mirror, 2) Differentiate, 3) Connect, 4) Surface.

Each level has it’s value and place in a visual practice.
As we expand our capacity to listen and engage the unknown, we shift from representing what we literally hear to what we can sense emerging.

Through this online session, participants will learn about various ”Levels of Scribing” that can apply across all types of client and community settings.
There will be time to learn the basic framework, engage in a guided practice, see examples of scribing at each level, and join in conversation through questions and answers.
