Why Visual Recording?

The Big Picture

Benefits of using a Visual Recorder at your meeting, workshop, conference, retreat, or event:

  • Participation – fosters trust
  • Thinking – increases understanding
  • Memory – encourages productivity

As a Visual Recorder, I draw LIVE at your meeting, on giant-sized sheets of paper (typical size is 4′ by 8′) using colorful markers and special pastels.

I listen deeply to the presentation or conversation and record the message with visual pictures, patterns, and printing.

So, what goes into my brain through my ears leaves my brain through my fingers…

And that is great for you!


Your brain processes VISUAL information 60,000 times faster than text alone. (3M Corp—2001)

Your brain is amazing at REMEMBERING pictures.

3—Day Rule

  • If you hear a piece of information—three days later you will remember 10% of it.
  • If you see a picture along with a piece of information—three days later you will remember a whopping 65% of it.

Visual Meeting Phenomena

  1. Participation: engagement flourishes because people see their input drawn. They buy into the meeting because they have been acknowledged and feel valued.
  2. Thinking: seeing the Big Picture promotes clearer understanding of goals, direction, challenges, solutions, etc. Groups get smarter when they think and see patterns, comparisons, and ideas mapped out.
  3. Memory: memorable visuals increase group and individual information retention. Productivity and project action flows freely when you remember stuff!
