Graphic Facilitation : Picturing your Big Ideas

Conferences

Graphic facilitation added an element of creativity to our keynote sessions. [ImageThink] did an amazing job. We are thrilled with the results.
— Libby Ashcraft, Event Manager, IBM Smarter Commerce Global Summit

Graphic recording adds an element of engagement to large events and conferences that is hard to match. Not only does it increase engagement and focus during sessions, it allows participants to keep interacting with and sharing the content between presentations and long after the event.

Ways in which ImageThink supports conferences:

  • Real-time visual summaries of keynote speeches and panel discussions which are then displayed on-site and digitized
  • Sketch notes of conference sessions — a graphic recorder is seated in the audience and makes sketchbook-sized graphic recordings
  • Real-time twitter murals — illustrations of tweets using conference hashtag
  • Tablet graphic recording on iPad or similar device, which can be projected in large auditoriums
  • Audience take-aways — digital versions of our images can be printed quickly, for attendees to take concise visual notes with them the following day.
