Pumpkin lattes are back, my sandals are away, so I should have written this a month ago. Here’s a quick recap where graphic facilitation has recently improved meetings and processes in the health, government, education and non-profit sectors.
And although I don’t blog about every project, you can definitely count on me to tweet daily. Happily, I realized I could use twitter to fill in some graphic facilitation highlights. I went through my twitter photos and here’s a sample of what happened:
– Designed and facilitated the first retreat for the new Centre for Indigenous Studies at the University of British Columbia. I heard powerful stories about the value and impact of research that’s accountable to community.
– Graphic recording at the Farm Folk City Folk strategic planning session with staff and board – a extra little pro bono work resulted in tickets to their annual fundraiser at Feast of Fields! Yum! Eating is my favourite.
– Patient Journey map for Reciprocal Consulting and the First Nations Health Authority. First, I facilitated a staff engagement that mapped out the learnings from a program evaluation process. Then, I transformed this draft/live map into a final graphic that was used along with their report.
And what else ….
– Canadian Union of Public Employees BC (CUPE BC) Think Tank conference. Graphic recording keynotes, designing group work and building in a gallery walk of the graphic recordings to make this event as interactive as possible.
– City of Vancouver invitation-only events about Renewable Cities and a research dialogue. Hearing a room full of people working on a warm summer night, talking about renewable energy really does good things for one’s heart. And hope.
– New coaching clients (for graphic recording) demonstrating how positive reinforcement and practice really pays off. Amazing improvements!
