Getting Graphic!

By Kimberley King

If you have the task of bringing together a group people in a small team setting or at a large conference, consider one of the most important  elements- the outcomes!  Keeping track of the key ideas, brilliant suggestions or powerful group think can be a challenge. And yet they are the real nuggets you want to capture and share!  So what is graphic recording and how can it help you?

We turned to our experts Corrie Melanson and Janet Rhymes at See Meaning to help us explain.  “On large chart paper, we record the words and images shared at your conference, workshop or meeting in real time. This can be a stand-alone, where we record for your facilitator or conference speaker.An expert from our team can also provide facilitation in combination with graphic recording services if required Great ideas sometimes get stuck in complex reports. Use these expert  graphic skills to make your idea, project, evaluation or plan come alive!”

Graphic Recording:

Boosts learning and clarity: most people are visual thinkers. They can understand and build on ideas when they see them.

Validates participant voice: people can see that they have been heard.

Enhances creativity: we integrate visual approaches that inspire out-of-the-box thinking.

Fosters collaboration and change: using visual tools allows people to communicate, co-create and plan together with ease.

Provides a visual summary: this keeps the learning ‘in the room’ during your event. Or, post-event, share our charts by email, post them to the web or print them as a starting point for your next meeting.

Outcomes. Outplay. Everything! Provide a visual memory in the minds of your audience, foster collaboration, and boost learning, while enhancing creativity.
