Roberta Faulhaber, facilitation graphique Recently a friend of mine discovered mindmapping and decided to try to use it to memorize poetry, an ongoing although until now frustrated ambition. About a week later, we met in a café and she proceeded to recite poetry to me for half an hour -- including Dover Beach by Matthew Arnold (see below).

Graphic Facilitators As part of her wider research into the tools and methodologies used by the next generation of global leaders, Heidi Forbes Oste has started down the path of researching the value of “visual practice” (visual facilitation, graphic recording, mindmapping, sketch-noting, etc.) As a piece of her dissertation, Heidi’s research on the visual practice, although still in the early stages, focuses on how it supports leadership and global teams using social technologies. In this one-hour webinar with Alphachimp's Peter Durand, Heidi answered questions and gave insight into the broader trends at the intersection of social systems, collaborative technology, visual learning, innovation and global leadership.
