You'll leave with new ideas, tools for success, and new connections with other like-minded people who share your passion for bringing their vision into reality through visual thinking.
We're not talking capital-A Art here -- we mean sketchnoting, whiteboarding, mindmapping, visual journaling, using visual tools as facilitators, leaders, speakers, managers -- the possibilities are endless!

- Learn through doing
- Learn more about yourself

Brandy welcomes visual thinkers from all levels of experiences and types of practices.
Viz-curious or brand new to visual thinking? Welcome! You’ll bring us a fresh perspective.
Experienced? ENVISION is an opportunity to share your knowledge, recharge or perhaps get out a mental rut.
If you know you’re always growing, you are in exactly the right place.
Stretch your mind and fill up your inspiration tank
Get ready to stretch your mind and fill up your inspiration tank!
Whether you’ve been drawing your whole life or you’ve just discovered visual thinking today, we are at the dawn of a new Visual Age.
Humans have drawn forever. But ever since Gutenberg’s printing press made text easy to duplicate and distribute, imagery has been pushed aside. Words became THE way of learning and working.
Text is a great way to distribute information, but lousy for processing it. Especially complex info and LOTS OF IT.
When is the last time you solved a problem
in a straight line?
Visual Thinking is the little-known super power for making meaning for ourselves, making sense of the world around us, and to help others make meaning together.
Brandy is thrilled to share special guests with you that come from variety of practices and points of view. She wants you to take your ENVISION experience and your work out into whole new terrains!
Tap into your values and the value of your visual thinking
If you’re new to visual thinking, learn how vital it is as a tool for defining your purpose and aligning your actions to your values.
Already a visual thinking devotee? Use ENVISION to realign and recharge your sense of purpose.
There’s something mighty powerful about that simple act of getting your thoughts, feelings and ideas out of your head and onto paper (on tablet, or whiteboard, or whatever surface works for you).
Making a drawing is the first step
in making great things happen.
Even if you believe thoroughly in your power as a visual thinker, it can be hard to forge ahead in a world that just doesn’t get it.
Brandy gets it.
She created ENVISION to help you get your own inner strength toned up and engaged.
To get together with other humans revving up and ready to go.
To help you get better at articulating your values and your value as a visual thinker to the wider world.
"I truly enjoyed the time spent at the conference last year getting to know other people and exchanging knowledge in order to expand the field of visual thinkers.
"It was a remarkable and creative way to bring together people from all over the world virtually. I’m looking forward to Envision 2021."
Meet our gorgeous global community
Reconnect with old friends, make new ones, or simply feel less alone. Brandy’s magnet attracts only the kindest, most thoughtful folks so you will be welcomed into a respectful virtual space. (If any meanies sneak in, they will be ousted.)
Brandy knows a whole lot of us into drawing and thinking are world-class introverts. She is too. (Don’t laugh. She is.) Engaging in the breakouts and the event forum will help you make the most out of ENVISION —and— Brandy doesn’t force fun.
The weekend is designed to meet you where you are, in your practice and in the world, and invite you to connect with to our larger community.
Connect from the comfort of your own home. No airfare or hotel expenses. No vax passports or masks either.

Q: I registered for the regular ticket. How can I upgrade to ALL-ACCESS?
A: Click here to pay for the $200 upgrade fee and be automatically upgraded.
Q: You're sending me a package? How will it be sent and will I be charged fees?
A: If you register before Sept 3, a package will be sent via FedEx to arrive shortly before the event.
Your package will contain the event work/sketchbook, exercise handouts, Neuland pens, and a few other goodies to complement your experience.
If you are outside of the US, you may be charged fees to receive your package.
If you would rather opt out of receiving a package, you'll see a field on the check out page to opt out.
If you choose to do so, or your package doesn't arrive before the event, you'll be given an option to print out the PDF workbook pages and handouts at home.
Q: What if I register after September 3rd??
A: We'll keep sending packages every business day, but yours may not reach you in time. September 3rd gives us a comfy two-week window for your package to travel to your mailbox.
Q: I attended 2020. How will 2021 be different?
A: You're definitely going to see some greatest hits, but Brandy is inviting new special guests and creating new experiences.
Brandy's hope is that you'll attend again as your annual recharge in your visual thinking practice and to connect with our brilliant community.
The kits will be very similar, aside from the new 2021 work/sketchbook. It you want to opt out of a new kit, you can download and print the program at home.
Note: If you join us via All-Access, and just want your 2021 ENVISION prompt deck sent, type "KIT NO, DECK YES" in that field upon checkout.
Q: My son/daughter/niece/nephew/kiddo loves to draw can they attend ENVISION?
A: The event is designed for adults. There's nothing in these three days that will be detrimental to children or teens. Maybe a stray swear word or two. But children are very likely to be bored. An older teen who likes hanging out with the adults may be AOK.
This is more of a retreat than drawing workshop. By all means, if you want your kids to sit in with you as you attend, they are welcome to.
Q: I'm trying to convince my boss to send me to ENVISION. Help me make my case.
A: Depends on your boss and your role. :^) All in all, ENVISION is a retreat or interest group conference. It is great recharge time, designed to help you cultivate personal-development, creativity, reflection and vision.
If you are the lone visual thinker on your team, ENVISION connects you to the community, new perspectives, tools and techniques.
If you deliver virtual events or training, Brandy's design is chock full of best practices.
ENVISION is not a workshop. If you're looking for direct visual thinking training, join Vitals of Visual THINKING on December 3rd.
Q: Can I buy a one day pass?
A: No, this is designed as full three-day experience.
Q: I have another question, where can I get an answer?
A: Click on over to Brandy's Contact Page to get her email and ask away!
Q: What if I need to cancel?
A: Refunds available up until 14 days before the event. No refunds after September 3, 2021.
