Using Visuals to Lead

Learn how to distill information, engage diverse voices, and have better meetings with graphic recording and facilitation training. We’ll show you how to help groups make sense of information and make people feel heard – and you don’t have to be a super-sketcher to take part. Our graphic facilitation trainings are for facilitators, educators, managers, and innovators, and anyone who finds themselves working with groups (isn’t that everyone?).

In 2022, our workshops return with both virtual and in-person options! We want you to create meetings with more belonging and connection – using visual facilitation and graphic recording. Our foundational workshops will help you hone your listening and drawing skills to make meaning, increase collaboration, and work on complex problems. 

 

Sam’s methods make you always feel like you’re having fun while learning. The workshop was a pleasure and our group learned a lot—we look forward to incorporating it into our meetings and strategic planning. Thank you!!

Every meeting needs a Sam. I have had the pleasure of attending two sessions in which Sam’s graphic facilitation elevated our meetings to memorable and effective gatherings. He is highly experienced with and attentive to accessibility requirements, and demonstrated an awareness of our group’s social justice values. He offered carefully thought out activities, flexible attention to group and individual needs, and endlessly patient yet effective coordination. His kind, friendly, and grounding presence helped us focus and connect in a way that persisted into the group’s future organizing together.
