We Help You Create Great Meetings

Nobody should have to experience another boring meeting, or a conference so packed with content they can’t keep track of or retain what they’ve learned.

We can help you to create an outstanding event that will keep your attendees engaged, focused on key content, and retain far more information.

Dr. John Medina, author of Brain Rules says “if you hear a piece of information, you’re likely to remember 10% of it three days later.  Add a picture and you’ll remember 65%.”
 

That’s exactly what live graphic recording does.  It’s a real-time visual representation of what attendees are hearing, which solidifies that information in their minds and helps them to remember it going forward.

Use the finished murals to recap your event, host a gallery walk, post on social media, and more.

Right after the event we will send you high-res digital files of all of the finished murals.  Send the files to attendees to review what they learned and share with their team. 

The finished work is yours to keep and use online, in collateral materials, and on social media.

Here's what clients are saying

It was a pleasure to work with Alece to produce a graphic recording of our workshop with a client. Alece was very professional and she led us through the process smoothly. She genuinely cares about the outcome and did a lot of preparation leading up to the workshop, reading up on our client and understanding our main objectives. Our client partners and consultants were impressed with the final product as it perfectly captured the workshop journey and key points throughout the day. We would hire her again in the next opportunity and highly recommend her services. Thanks Alece!

Alece’s drawings, gracious interaction with our members and phenomenal closing presentation hit the mark for NASAA at our annual conference. We made a new friend and found a new colleague.

Alece, well…what can I say...you ROCKED it!  Thank you so much for doing such a fabulous job on all the graphic recordings from the PlayRoom sessions.  Not only are you a great artist, but you captured the essence of each session perfectly and conveyed it in a colorful and fun way.
— Sharon Fisher,  Play With A Purpose
It was a pleasure to collaborate with Alece on a project designed to capture my students’ voice in a mural that will impact change agency in higher education.  Alece and I worked closely to imagine what representational strategies would best reflect the research data my team collected on the spot, and the resulting mural now provides an invaluable perspective on our research and will inform the direction of our future work with students.  On top of that, literally hundreds of students pass by the mural each day and admire how great their own words look!  Thanks for the amazing experience and product, Alece!
— Dr. Lunden MacDonald, Director of First Year Success Program, MSU
It’s terrific to have a visual representation of our strategic plan. It will hang in a high traffic area of our building so that all staff can be reminded daily of where we are headed – our dream for a better future for the women we serve and their families. My hope is that we will enlist visitors who are inspired by our vision map to join us in accomplishing our long term organizational goals.

We held a Summit with industry experts and Alece was able to bring to life six hours of  discussion in a very succinct but impactful way that we reference throughout the year. It was our first time using a visual recorder and we liked it so much, we brought her to an offsite the following week! Thank you Alece.

I had the pleasure of working with Alece Birnbach during the HERS 2014 Summit meeting.  Everybody in the conference was not only impressed by her beautiful drawings, but also how accurately her work represented all the information being shared by the presenters.  Her work enhanced the information being shared during the Summit and it is proudly included on our website for future reference.  We will certainly tap into Alece for any future meetings.
