Visual facilitation

More than 80% of us are visual learners, yet our standard meeting structure is to get a bunch of people in a room or online and talk. Sometimes we include a presentation slide deck, but the slides are often just text with an image or two. Studies show that visual images combined with text, increases memory retention up to 89% (Robert Horn, Stanford University). Before you suffer through yet another lengthy Zoom meeting, consider that there is a better way.

Visual facilitation is the real-time capture in images and words of the conversation or presentation in meetings, and it can be used whether the meeting is with just a few people or thousands. Visual facilitators listen for salient points in the group conversation, synthesizing them and translating them into a visual form. This can be done in person or virtually. When working with groups in person, our facilitator uses a huge sheet of paper in front of the room. When meeting virtually, we create digital drawings that can be shared in real time or at key moments of group reflection and discernment.

Here’s what visual facilitation can bring to your meeting:
