The Magic of Mental Models: How to Think Inside The Box with Todd Cherches

The Magic of Mental Models: How to Think Inside The Box with Todd Cherches - Author of VisuaLeadership

The Visual Jam Xtra events are back! These are paid events where we do a deeper dive on insightful topics for a small fee (we try to keep these events super cheap to enable us to continue to fund our community activities).


In this fun and fast-paced live 2-hour Visual Jam Xtra workshop, Todd Cherches will join Grant, Paddy, and – hopefully! – You to explore how we can all leverage the power of visual models and frameworks to more efficiently, effectively, and creatively solve problems, make decisions, ideate, innovate, communicate, facilitate, and lead.


If you’ve never really given any thought to the questions, “What, exactly, is a ‘model’ or ‘framework’, anyway?”; “How and why do they work?”; and/or “How can I use them to be more effective?”; these questions – and more – will be explored…and a mix of valuable new models will be introduced for you to add to your visual thinking toolkit.


As the CEO of leadership development and executive coaching firm BigBlueGumball, as well as an award-winning NYU and Columbia University professor, TEDx speaker, and the author of the groundbreaking book, “VisuaLeadership,” Todd is not only a “model citizen”,  but also a “role model” when it comes to using – and creating – visual models and frameworks – and he will show YOU how to become a “Master of Models” as well.


So, please join us for this very special Visual Jam Xtra event on Thursday, 30th March 2023 at 6:00 p.m. BST (1:00 p.m. ET)


Sign up today for early-bird pricing for only £26 and while space is still available! 

This interactive, experiential workshop will enable you to:

  1. Get a better understanding of what models and frameworks are…as well as explore how you can leverage them in your own work to enhance your efficiency, effectiveness, and creativity.
  2. Be introduced to a variety of classic and cutting-edge models and frameworks for you to add to your visual thinking toolkit.
  3. Get a chance to connect to, and share your insights with, fellow visual thinkers.


As the American architect, designer, and philosopher Buckminster Fuller famously wrote, “You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.”


You will receive a full recording of the live session in case you want to replay it at your own pace…so you will be more aware of how mental models work…and perhaps even be able to create your own visual models and frameworks in the future.


Early Bird Offer includes a 25% discount (£26) for a limited time. Buy tickets here:
