Meeting Facilitation

Facilitation + Graphics = Magic!

A great meeting requires a great meeting design: the right structure helps a group reach its objectives, and can accommodate diverse opinions and challenges.  We’ll design and facilitate your event to meet ALL your objectives, soft and hard. Whether we provide a team, with a facilitator and one or more graphic recorders, or just a facilitator, you can be assured your meeting is in good hands!

Deep conversation at a Board & Staff Retreat for a local non-profit yielded unexpected dividends. Not only did we decide on Strategic Goals for the year, the group created a vibrant and expansive new Vision and even a new name…

I just wanted to thank you again for a FANTASTIC day! I received lots of compliments and that is really all you! Thank you for all the hours you spent with me to bring an engaging and eye opening meeting today! I am so happy…and also exhausted. I’m sure you are too!

Martha McGinnis facilitated a high impact World Cafe for our group of 40 people.  Her preparation, attention to detail, and thoughtful plan set us up for success.  During the workshop, she kept us focused and on time with clear directions, strong room management, and a solid balance between structure and flexibility to keep us engaged.

When facilitating on her own, Martha often uses pre-drawn graphic templates and imagery to guide the group toward a goal. Visual Logic’s Graphic Facilitation service is an economical and powerful option if your budget won’t cover a separate facilitator and graphic recorder. It’s an interactive, exciting, and engaging process that draws people in, stimulates innovation, and produces great results!

How It Works

Visual Logic will help you to identify and clarify your meeting objectives. Then, processes, activities, and visuals will be designed to create the right mood, engage participants fully, handle issues productively, and produce the results you want. Visual Logic helps participants capture and develop their emergent wisdom and answer questions such as… what’s under the surface?… what’s new?… what’s truly essential?… what’s next?… what are you committed to?

Individuals are more productive and innovative when you put the whole brain to work, and groups find it easier to get on the same page and stay on track to reach their objectives. Deep thinking, creative problem-solving, positive learning, and clear outcomes happen.

Support Services

Virtual Graphic Recording

Visual Logic can support your Conference Call or Video Conference with Graphic Recording over the Web.  A number of online tools are available to allow participants to view the chart remotely.  We can also create charts after-the-fact from audio or video recordings.

Facilitation Templates & Tools

Visual Logic can fill in the gaps if you have a small staff or little time. As part of the planning process, we may design wall-sized graphic templates to both guide and capture group work. Easy and fun to use, you’ll be amazed at their impact on group productivity and innovation. Templates work beautifully with other pre-charted materials to create an engaging and productive meeting environment, and will be customized to fit your process, industry and organizational culture. Please get in touch to learn more.
