Visual Logic Graphic Recording and Facilitation help organizations harness the tremendous potential of their critical Meetings, Retreats and Conferences:
Capturing Value often left on the table
Capturing Knowledge usually lost as memories fade
Capturing Opportunities and Insights that emerge only briefly, in the moment
Founded in 2002 by Martha McGinnis, Visual Logic is the product of a 20-year career in private industry that encompassed Management, Finance, Organizational Development, and Operations: The common threads were People, Process, Leading CHANGE, ...and meetings. Lots of meetings.
For Martha, work as a Graphic Recorder and Facilitator is both a natural next step and the resolution of a life-long oscillation between word and image. Providing fresh and powerful tools for moving organizations to higher-order thinking and action, hers is a unique practice that brings into the meeting room her deep grounding in the language and process of business, PLUS fluency in: pattern recognition and expression, reasoning across time and space, visual metaphor and 'triggers', high-fidelity listening.
Helping people tell their stories, together, to create NEW ENDINGS:
In private industry, Martha worked with line employees to identify changes in individual work practices, systems, and beliefs necessary to eliminate hazardous incidents. The pilot program they eventually proposed became the heart of a multi-million dollar, industry-transforming operational excellence program.
Dedicated to facilitating the success of worthwhile efforts wherever they arise, she works with organizations of all kinds to identify core principles, surface internal wisdom, and build visions, strategies, and plans people will embrace whole-heartedly. To that end, Martha tailors her work to support the specific needs of her clients: Executives, Facilitators, and Consultants who seek to enhance processes, engage people, and achieve lasting results.
Martha is well-prepared by both education and experience to practice in a full range of organizational environments. Based in Atlanta, Georgia, she practices throughout the Southeast and Nationwide.
Board Member and Past President of the International Forum of Visual Practitioners (2004-06, 2010-11), Martha is committed to establishing Visual Practice, including Graphic Recording and Graphic Facilitation, as a powerful and valuable tool that belongs in every meeting-planner's toolkit. She has undertaken the task of supporting and unifying a diverse and far-flung membership around a common purpose: making a powerful and positive impact on meetings everywhere.
