  • “I enjoyed paging through, remembering things I had forgotten… It will be a great reminder of the value of the meeting.”

We attend your event and capture the essence of it in words and pictures. Part of our notetaking includes identifying important questions and laying out possible action plans for the attendees to consider when they leave the event. The graphic facilitation is often on big boards so the attendees see the artwork being developed. It may also be done on a sketch pad.

In either case, we take photographs of the images and post them to a webpage for your event that can be shared immediately. We can videotape the drawing, add a voice-over and produce an animated video that can posted to YouTube within 24 hours. 

Then the amazing thing is that we wrap up the images and copy in a way that captures the challenges and possibilities of disruption along with ideas of how to address the issues in an ActionCraft Workbook!  We combine our visuals, summaries, important questions and action-oriented strategies into a book and provide you the PDF of that publication within one week.

You or your attendees can then purchase hard copies of the ActionCraft Workbooks to take home. The positive and forward-looking workbooks combine ideas and questions with inspiring pictures to turn that firehose of information into insights that can be acted upon-- even if the challenges explored are big and complex!

Attendees can also participate in a spark session with an ActionCraft facilitator during the conference AND/OR back home. The ActionCraft Workbooks are designed to be used by attendees as consensus-building, strategic planning tools with others who were unable to attend the conference.

Using the workbook helps attendees take the messages of speakers and thought leaders to the home team so they can work together to develop the appropriate responses, learn new insights and make smarter business choices.
