The Power of Visual Story Telling for Speakers
|Join the Pretoria chapter for its next meeting which will take place on the 3rd of November 2016 at the Leriba Hotel and Spa, 245 End Street, Cardinal, Centurion.|
Main Speaker: Colin Horner
Colin is an entrepreneur owning his own company: Visual Thinking. For the last 20 years he has pioneered the use of mind mapping software as a tool for both individuals and businesses to work more effectively and improve communication.
Having been introduced to the concept of ‘Sketchnoting’ some 6 years ago, he has since focused on this methodology. He now offers services and training in graphic recording and facilitation. A technique that uses visual images to enhance understanding and communication across language, culture, age and education barriers.
Colin is an active member of Business Network International, and serves as both a Director Consultant and Education Coordinator in BNI.
Colin is married to Jeannette and lives and works out of Sandton, Johannesburg.

PSASA Pretoria Chapter President 2016/17
With a track record of 30 years in comedy, Barry Hilton has raised the world’s laughter level considerably.
His delightful knack of finding the ludicrous and the humorous turns daily situations on their head to make us laugh at life.
His face is as funny as his repartee, with lugubrious looks tailor-made for mirth. Barry’s gregarious personality makes him a people’s person, happy to engage with the audience before and after his shows.
Barry is a seasoned comedian who’s as streetwise as any youngster. He’s remained at the top by continually coming up with fresh material - and by having six children to keep him hip and happening.
Barry will share with PSASA members his new motivational talk and then how he Finds the Funny and adds it to his material.
This is a workshop not to be missed.
Limited seats available, so book early.
Date: November 12th 2016
Cost are as follows for PSASA Members - R300 and for Non-Members - R600
