...Graphic recording

Graphic Recorders are artists who listen to a speaker and transcribe the information in a visual manner. Graphic recorders can work as recording services to summarise the key messages of speakers at conferences. They can also work with executives or leaders to graphically facilitate their strategic planning and company visions.


...Graphic or visual facilitation

Graphic Facilitation is the use of large-scale imagery to lead groups and individuals towards a goal. The method can be used in various events such as meetings, seminars, workshops and conferences. The visual process is conducted by a graphic facilitator.

The early field of graphic facilitation was named “Explicit Group Memory” by facilitator Geoff Ball, who “discovered” that a shared picture supported group learning or, more importantly, a lasting memory within the group.

A Graphic Facilitation Retrospective by graphic facilitator David Sibbet tells the story of these early pioneers in the field who were inspired by architects (with understanding of large imagery), designers, computer engineers (who started to cluster information in a new way), artists and psychologists. He describes that what at a glance “just” looked like graphics was so much more: “It was also a dance, and the telling of a story, since the facilitator was constantly in physical motion, miming the group and its communication with movement as well as commenting on the displays..”
