Clear communication of ideas helps to build great project outcomes and strong client relationships. This interactive event will get us talking about design communication in the industry - what’s working and what needs to change.

  • Raise awareness of the importance of clear communication for landscape designers and managers
  • Highlight language skills that complement our design and technical skills
  • Inspire dialogue between industry members, their teams, their clients and the public.

The event will cover the following themes:

  • What we mean by effective design communication
  • How to engage people with design ideas, even without visuals
  • How to communicate with a variety of audiences: technical, non-technical, small groups, large auditoriums
  • How to build confidence in your own style of communication.

Interactive features:

  • Audio snippets from Dig Beneath Design, SNDC’s podcast where industry leaders share how they communicate their work.
  • Video excerpts from successful designers’ presentations and TED talks
  • Practical exercises: depending on the size of the audience, these may be individual reflective learning exercises or small group discussions.
