Graphic facilitation is creating a collaborative big picture, using graphics and visual materials to bring better ideas to the table, be it a board meeting or a large event, it employs simple elements like glyphs to complex materials like knowledge wall.
The beauty of Graphic facilitation lies in collaborative thoughts coming together in the form of graphical representation, which is owned by every single person in the room. Facilitation through visuals help explore possibilities in rolling out new strategies, setting value proposition, simplifying complex ecosystem and more.
Graphic Recording / live scribing is a part of graphic facilitation, where the conversation or discussion, which could be related to building strategy, setting goals, framing action plan or more - gets captured as a visual note. This is done live at the conference / meeting / event.
These materials serve as a journey map, or conversation flowchart to retain a better understanding for the group to view and proceed further with the discussion they had and decisions they made.
We understand what we see more than what we hear. We all are born as right brainers and connecting with visuals takes us to the zone where we loosen up constrained thoughts and explore more possibilities. If this gets applied to your meeting, your graphs and ppts take a back seat, because our illustration will do all the talking.
Content illustrations are content modified as meaningful illustration, where your information / data is synthesised with storyboarding to create an impactful story line . This will help your clients connect with the concept adding a touch of experience to it.
Having virtual conversation and creating the same impact we have in a board room or with a group of people could be challenging, which is where Explanatory video come to your rescue.
