Biography

Charles-Louis de Maere, Visual Thinking Facilitator and Trainer, Founder of Exploration Labs SRL, gives inspirational insights in his background, his work as a facilitator and his engagement with NGO’s.
“Communication usually fails, except by accident.” This statement from Wiio’s laws has fueled Charles-Louis’ curiosity in recent years. He has passionately dedicated himself to connecting with people through their own language. Yet, one thing remained puzzling to him: How is it that we possess a vocabulary of thousands of words and still struggle to understand each other and communicate effectively? What can we do to improve the situation? This has become Charles-Louis’ passion in recent years, which he expresses through coaching individuals and teams.

Is there a better way to give meaning to what we say than by drawing to clarify our thoughts? When we add visual information to what we say, our intent suddenly becomes much clearer, allowing us to begin working towards a common understanding. That’s why he loves connecting people with the power of visual thinking, returning to our roots and using pen and paper to bring people closer together.
