Need help with your distributed workforce strategy? We will help you move forward. Our virtual meetings facilitation team will host, manage, facilitate and document your session with digital graphic recording so you can collaborate, brainstorm, and work together, even when apart.
All Part of the Plan
Even more important than in face-to-face gatherings, a well-made agenda keeps everyone focused and on topic while joining remotely. ImageThink virtual meeting facilitation begins with helping our clients design their agenda. This document is a powerful tool in moving the discussion forward, predicting potential sticking points, and ensuring all participant voices are given equal weight and opportunity to join.
Capture the Winning Ideas
With ImageThink, digital graphic recorders allow your participants to see their suggestions illustrated in-real-time, keeping everyone focused and engaged on the discussion at hand. Because these assets are created digitally, they can be sent to the full team immediately after the virtual meeting ends. Beyond providing a record of what was said, visual notes automatically encourage the creation of visual mnemonic devices, which means your meeting is more memorable.

Frequently Asked Questions
Virtual meeting facilitation is a critical part of today’s distributed workforce strategy. At ImageThink, our virtual meeting facilitation includes digital graphic recording, which is the real-time translation of conversations or presentations into text and pictures. Digital graphic recorders do three things simultaneously: they listen for key ideas, synthesize them, and document them in visual form. It gives meeting and conference attendees an opportunity to absorb content on a visual level.
In a presentation, digital graphic recording increases engagement and memory-retention for the participants. Many people are visual learners, and studies indicate that people remember more information when combined with visuals than they do from the spoken word alone.
During a brainstorm or strategy session, a skilled graphic recorder will synthesize all of the group’s contributions into a coherent visual while revealing connections between ideas that might otherwise have gone unnoticed. This practice promotes creative thinking, collaboration and deeper engagement by creating a collective vision (literally).
In our ImageThink workshops, we teach several ways to make meetings more productive, including effective whiteboarding techniques, group creativity exercises, and best practices for assigning action items and owners when the meeting is done. We have also just launched a new e-learning course on designing and leading effective virtual brainstorms.
At ImageThink, we price our virtual meeting facilitation and digital graphic recording services according to the nature of your engagement – whether it’s an internal meeting or public conference, for example – and how much support you need. Staffing, time, and materials are all factors in our rate card. Get in touch to discuss how we can help bring your biggest ideas to the surface and we’ll provide you with a custom quote.
