Graphics are an engaging, memorable and effective way of recording what is shared, discussed and decided during a meeting, conference or event.
Graphic Recording is an approach utilised by forward-thinking organisations and groups. In particular those who are interested and invested in offering a productive and engaging work-place event or experience. Utilising graphic recording demonstrates how the organisation or group values the people that work within the organisation or the partners or people that they work alongside.
As Graphic Facilitators, we create a colourful and meaningful visual display using words and images that people can relate to.
When a meeting, conference or event is Graphic Recorded everyone present can see what is being recorded in real time. Those present start to open up the right side of their brain and begin to see colourful and vibrant solutions and ideas. They can see immediately that their contributions are being heard.
The visual recording creates a greater focus on the conversation, builds ownership of the plan and ideas which leads to good decisions being made. It also helps everyone present think creatively and stay interested and focused.
A visual record helps people to remember what has been discussed and agreed at the meeting, conference or event and it builds people motivation and commitment to the course of direction agreed.
A visual recording which is shared after the event, conference or meeting assists in engaging key stakeholders after the event and can achieve further buy into the ideas generated and decisions made.
