Global manufacturer testimonial

We recently provided graphic recording services to a major global manufacturer. They recently sent us this testimonial.
The Scribing Magic drawings certainly added value to our event and created a talking point that brought people together. We were impressed by the graphic recorders ability to clarify our brief, understand it, and ask the right questions to capture a holistic and accurate image of our event. Overall very worthwhile contribution. – SITA

 

 

Want some graphic facilitation training in the US?

One of our partners in the United States is offering a foundational graphic facilitation training. Crowley & Co have been training The Grove style of graphic recording and how to integrate those tools into meeting facilitation for many years. Deirdre Crowley has over 15 years experience in graphics for meetings, organisational communications and in the meeting facilitation space. Her training is quite popular and quite inspirational.

The training is 2.5 days in the Potomac, Maryland area from April 20-22. You can learn more about the contents and approach to this workshop at the Crowley & Co website.

If you are interested in learning more about graphic facilitation and how it can support your meeting energy, group focus, commitment to agreements and the like give us a call at +44 (0)1628 471 114 or drop us a note via our contact form and tell us what you want to explore about making your meetings more productive.

Happy Anniversary to us!

Today is our one year anniversary! One year ago we separated the visual thinking and graphic recording offerings from Meeting Magic to create Scribing Magic as a co-brand and co-creator for working with clients across the board. We are excited about our success so far and look forward to another year of growth and supporting our great clients.

Thank you to those who have engaged us with your visual work. And thank you to our team of graphic recorders, admin and website developers. It has been a very great year. Onward and upward!

If you want to explore how to engage visually and graphically with your groups, with graphic recording, storymaps / rich pictures, corporate animations, illustrations and company cartooning and other visual methods, give us a call at +44 (0)1628 471 114 or complete the contact form with some details of your events. We’ll get back to you as quickly as we can.

Graphic recording works when it is done in service to the group.

When to practice graphic recording?

One question we get all the time is “how can I practice my graphic recording skills when I am so busy?” We understand ‘busy’ and we know that practicing is what makes a good recorder. Practicing is an ongoing commitment of a good recorder.

The image above is a simple example by Katherine Woods. Our full team was on our weekly virtual call. This call was a graphic training opportunity, which we do regularly together to give feedback on recently completed graphics from client meetings to learn what worked and what might need some attention for future sessions. Katherine was not the virtual graphic recorder, one of our other team members had that role for this meeting.

And yet, Katherine took the opportunity to practice her own recording by creating her own chart of the virtual conversation being recorded by one of our team members. Katherine recorded it in her style at her desk on paper. Doing her own recording of our virtual meeting kept her engaged and she was able to practice her already ample skills.

We believe you have to practice all the time at every chance you get in order to master graphic recording. Once you have your basic skills you can build on them by practicing, and then have others feedback what works and what needs attention. Give us a shout to learn more about learning and how to practice.
