We understand what we are looking at most easily by comparing it to what we are most familiar with.

Thinking about listening in new ways.

MM  Process-Middle Post It-7-10-14

For the new year it is valuable to take some time to think a little differently. We find that looking at how meetings happen is useful and supportive of our graphic recording and visual work.

When thinking about meeting this year we will be concentrating on what we call the 5C’s: connecting, collaborating, conversations, co-creating and culture. By thinking about these from the graphic recording perspective we find that we support our meeting facilitators and meeting sponsors so they get a depth of experience from us.

Visual thinking and recording those thoughts can support each of the 5C’s in capturing how they appear or exhibit themselves in your meetings, or in your organisation’s culture. We’ll be exploring these in more detail as the year progresses. Let us know how we can help you explore your 5C’s.

London meeting venue.

From time to time we are introduced to interesting meeting venues that are not in the usual lists of places to meet but add a level of interest and locale that can support a meeting or create a new dimension.

The Museum of Brands is one of those London venues that is interesting, quirky, informative and stimulating. Located in the Nottinghill area and off the beaten track, near Portobello Road, it offers one meeting room and the use of their cafe for meals. It is for small to almost medium sized meetings. The staff and customer service are great.

Give them a look and tell them we sent you. I could spend hours in the museum itself but also find the space inviting and supportive. They are fully understanding of graphic recording and what our recorders need. Bring us along and you’ll have a great meeting.
