Facilitation by Design
ears, eyes, hands and heart in service to the greater good
Visual meetings are creative, interactive, engaging, and extremely effective. A variety of tools, from visions boards to mind maps to visual strategy templates are carefully chosen to meet the needs of the organization and goals of the meeting.
As a visual facilitator, I guide the group processes and capture content that is created during the meeting or retreat. The members of the group are the generators of the content, solutions, ideas and action plans. I also work as a co-facilitator with partners.
Visual recording is commonly called Live Scribing, and Graphic Recording. As such, I am the eyes and ears of meetings and presentations. I capture the content, ideas and processes in words and images. This can be arranged as large paper-based surfaces in the meeting space or as digital scribing on laptop or iPad. Digital Scribing can also be projected in the event space as it is being created.
Live Scribing for public conferences is a great way to promote the content as the event unfolds. Video recordings, presentations and papers often take weeks or months to be made available, where as, Live Scribe visual notes can bee Tweeted and posted to the web as the event is happening. This informs and engages an audience beyond the walls of the event.
Visual Reports are designed and compiled after a meeting, retreat or conference using all of the visual materials produced by the group. This follow up document viscerally reengages the team in the experience, plans and actions arising from the meeting.
