Graphic recording is the
recording of verbal information, as it is spoken, through cartoons, symbols,
metaphors, and keywords, as a visible representation of information, ideas
and strategies or concepts.
recording is always done while the artist is listening to the spoken word, whether
in person, online or through audio recording. The visuals that are created
dramatically increase your audience retention and recall - long after they
have heard the speech, brainstormed the ideas, or listened to the teaching. I
work with teachers, trainers, professional speakers and one-on-one or in
groups such as board meetings or leadership training.
As I draw, I am listening
to what is being spoken, and
at the same time am looking for running themes or threads of thought,
patterns, metaphors, concepts and examples. These visual items are what
trigger the memories and thoughts of listeners who would otherwise forget
while focusing on the main points of a speech or meeting.
"A picture is worth a thousand words." Just
as a melody, a scent or a photograph will instantly remind the viewer of the
moment in time where an experience occurred or an event happened, so graphic
recording will trigger those thoughts, ideas and information at the time
they heard the information. Click

Talk to me now about creating a video from your digital
voice recording that you can post on your website!
A One-on-One session usually lasts anywhere
from one to three hours. I am available to do them by phone, or in person.
By doing it in person you have the added benefit of visualization as we plot
out your thoughts and impressions on the flipchart in front of you.
