Graphic Recording & Scribing

Graphic (or visual) recording and facilitation are the real-time translation of conversations, ideas or presentations into text and pictures. A graphic recorder does things simultaneously: listens for key ideas, synthesises them, and documents them in visual form. The visual facilitation is s the use of large scale imagery to lead groups and individuals towards a goal. The method is used in various processes such as meetings, seminars, workshops and conferences.

Visual recording

If you are looking for a graphic recorder of your presentation, conference or meeting, I can do it for you. Just write to me here.

Graphic facilitation training

Everyone can do visual facilitation and recording - it is often considered a method possible to be used only by people who can draw. Not really. The method lays on doodling only with simple shapes, so it is accessible for everyone.

It is a great methodology for presentations, taking notes, brainstorming and so on. I can teach you how to use it, it's easy! Write to me here and we will discuss the details of your and your team’s needs!
