Event description

In this 3-hour workshop, participants are immersed in the real-time, hand-drawn visual language of “graphic recording” and discover why thousands of companies and not-for-profits around the world have relied on this unique practice at their most strategic meetings and events.

Learn about and begin to practice a powerful meeting facilitation technique that taps directly into how our brains are wired. Companies like Google, eBay, Deloitte, Cisco, Harley Davidson, Wharton School of Business, Target, and Saatchi and Saatchi regularly use graphic recorders when the stakes are high and people need to understand the big picture.
