Working Virtually and Engaging with Impact

With a greater percentage of employees continuing to work remotely, teams need to connect more frequently to stay on top of things, so it’s crucial to make every meeting count.

We’re social beings wired to connect, but making up for the lack of human interaction with more emails and calls can paradoxically result in poorer communication and information overload. Face to face interactions allow us to communicate organically. Whether you’re on Zoom or Microsoft Teams, virtual venues call for new techniques and new skills.

ImageThink’s expert graphic facilitation, hand illustrated notes, and virtual moderation help bring the human element to impersonal tools and increase your ability to connect and collaborate. Even better, ImageThink toolkits and processes are flexible, platform agnostic, and bespoke to your needs.

Digital Graphic Recording: Help Your Attendees Zero In, Rather than Zone Out

Live visuals deepen connection, retention and create meaningful deliverables. Graphic recording is the real-time translation of conversations or presentations into text and pictures. Our graphic recorders do three things simultaneously: listen for key ideas, synthesize them, and document them in visual form.

As a result, attendees remain more focused on your content, more engaged in the conversation, and create stronger memories of what was discussed. Remote digital scribing brings these benefits to the virtual environment, where it can be difficult to feel connected. That means better collaboration, boosted buy-in, and more actionable takeaways.

Virtual Moderator: Guiding Your Team to the Virtual Summit

In-person meetings with large groups can be challenging as it is, and all the additional technology that makes work possible just adds another layer of complexity. As your team, and the teams of all your clients and competitors work to climb the technological Everest of long-term remote collaboration, it can be really helpful to have someone leading the way who’s been there before.

As the dedicated “virtual guide,” on countless client meetings over the past decade, ImageThink manages meeting dynamics and technology so your presenter can focus on being the expert, rather than on who is and is not muted.

We welcome, orient, and acclimate your attendees to the virtual environment, and serve as a virtual concierge. That means managing screen sharing, creating and facilitating breakout rooms, and introducing and running engagement modules. We can also monitor your chat window, and serve as a connective thread through your day or multi-day event.

And with important quarterly numbers on the line, that experience and expertise counts for more than ever before.

Virtual Facilitation: Design a Meeting that Delights Participants

Perhaps even more than their in-person, real-world counterparts, virtual meetings can benefit tremendously from a dedicated facilitator. We’re so often amazed (if not surprised) by what our clients can accomplish when a meeting has been custom designed and facilitated to meet their needs.

The cornerstone of our approach to graphic facilitation (virtual or otherwise) is rooted in The ImageThink Method™. Designed and executed to maximize impact, interaction, and engagement, The ImageThink Method™ incorporates design thinking, mind-mapping, and graphic recording to inspire collaboration.

We guide participants through group discussions, engaging with virtual tools like polls, breakout rooms and hands-on exercises, our graphic facilitators ensure you meet your objectives while delighting and inspiring attendees.

The end result is a more engaging, collaborative, and creative process that ends with measurable outcomes, meaningful deliverables, and actionable roadmaps.

Virtual Training: How to Drive Engagement in the Virtual Space

Since remote working is here to stay for many organizations, every team is going to need the tools to effectively communicate. As we like to say at ImageThink, we’ve had tens of thousands of years to learn to communicate and collaborate in person, and merely a decade to explore working together through computers.

Fortunately, that’s exactly what the ImageThink team has spent that decade doing, and we can tailor our wide ranging training modules to your specific needs. You’ll leave empowered with tools to lead effective, efficient, and engaging virtual meetings, and a feeling of mastery over your virtual space. We’ve offered clients technical guidance, presentation coaching, facilitation techniques, agenda design, icebreakers and energizers, and team building exercises.
