Good question! Graphic recording is a powerful tool for synthesizing conversations, dialogues, meetings and events. The recorder creates large-format visuals in real time, tapping into the collective intelligence and wisdom of a group and bringing it to life with graphics.

These “murals” act as a public memory, and help participants in any meeting or conversation share complex ideas easily. Everyone feels acknowledged and recognizes that they are actively participating and being heard. Graphic recording increases understanding, productivity and creativity, and facilitates systems thinking. It also engages both the right and left sides of the brain.
