Visual facilitation and graphic recording captures an in-the-moment record of an event using words, pictures, and information organization. A.k.a. — the coolest, oversized notes you’ve ever seen!
Including it in your event will increase participation, enhance group clarity, engender ownership of ideas, and provide a unique artifact. In short, it makes good engagements greater and brings a whole new meaning to “I see what you’re thinking!”
