I support corporations, social service providers and social-purpose enterprises in visioning and planning processes. I often use a technique called graphic facilitation or graphic recording to help groups think through, plan and evaluate their goals, or capture event content. This technique uses colourful text and simple images drawn by hand on large-scale paper or foam board in front of attendees. It engages people, helps synergies emerge and improves memory for attendees. Processes are either custom-designed or adapted from well-respected and published processes (World Café, Technology of Participation, Creative Problem Solving, Creative Problem Solving Process, Focused Conversation, MAPS, and PATH) which foster collaborative, inclusive conversations and processes that lead to dynamic and powerful results. Services are offered from a principle-centred approach and draw almost 20 years’ experience managing social service and advocacy organizations. This experience in service design, non-profit management and human resources could aide in accomplishing your goals.
I’m most frequently engaged in supporting conferences, trainings and in-house meetings as a graphic recorder. I sometimes produce infographics for complex research or launching new corporate strategies.
Along with an eclectic network of professional Associates, I offer solid experience and skills related to:
