WHAT
is Graphic Facilitation & Meeting Design

Graphic Facilitation is an enhanced facilitated process that incorporates graphic tools to make meetings, workshops, forums and events more effective, efficient and engaging.

A Graphic Facilitator works with clients to identify and clarify needs then designs and implements a meeting process to achieve desired outcomes. During a meeting or event, we act as a neutral facilitator and use graphic and interactive tools to create an experience that is both memorable and productive.

Meeting Design includes clarifying strategies and objective then designing a process to reach your goals. Considerations also include recommendations on meeting space set-up, timing, use of appropriate tools which may include graphic recording, graphic templates, small and large group activities, interactive learning games, and pre- and post-event activities.

    • This is the second event I’ve been involved with where you were facilitating the process. As both a ‘participant’ and a board member I have a greater understanding of the value your service provides. I was able to see and hear first hand the feedback from our community stakeholders and that alone was worth it’s weight in gold.

      Drawing out genuine honest comments from everyone can be a challenging process. But you’ve created a way where it seemed natural and easy. The outpouring of emotion in some folks at my table, clearly underscored how effective it all was.”

Her graphic recording lights up a room. It adds possibilities and connections to meetings and sessions that go way beyond conversation and decisions. I and my clients love her. I highly recommend Cynthia.”
