Applying Graphic Facilitation in New Contexts

Michelle Laurie

Announcing two workshops for September 2016

Michelle Laurie

This year I am very excited to host two workshops focused on the use of visuals in our facilitation practice. We are treading into new territory as we explore the role of visuals in design and facilitation. This is not your traditional workshop. We are looking to push our boundaries (and yours) in terms of the role of visuals in design and facilitation. The second is the 7th annual Rosviz graphic facilitation workshop.

It’s always an interesting spot to hold, a little outside of things, recording everything I can, keeping track and choosing pieces to share with the online world about our work in the workshop. What amazes me each time we do this is how the people in the room shape the workshop.

You might have heard about graphic facilitation, been in a meeting with visuals as part of the process, or simply wondered what all the fuss is about. Why would we change the way we look at facilitated experience? This was one of the master strokes of the workshop, in my opinion.
