DC Area OD Practitioners CoP

Topic: You've Hired a Graphic Recorder, Now What?  The Why, What, How, and When of Partnering with a Graphic Recorder

Description:  The evidence is in.  Using visuals in a meeting boosts engagement and increases retention.  But what does it mean to ‘use visuals?’  You are ready to hire someone whether they call themselves a graphic recorder, scribe or cartoonist, but how can you best use them? What are the types and levels of scribing?  More importantly, what are the choices that are made when someone is drawing on the walls.

Presenter:  Matteo Becchi and Barb Siegel

Matteo Becchi is an Organization Development (OD) consultant, a Graphic Recorder/Graphic Facilitator (aka: a Visual Practitioner), and an IT Project Management Professional (PMP, CSM) with over twenty years of professional experience in both the private sector, as well as government and higher education markets.
