Graphic recording and graphic facilitation have rapidly become a useful tool used by companies around the world to help engage stakeholders during meetings to capture key points as a visual diary.
Andrew Fyfe is a professional artist and storyteller with over 30 years experience communicating through a variety of media including television, print and live strategic visualisation sessions.
Andrew has honed his skills through years of drawing live commentary on the national television variety show, Hey Hey It’s Saturday. This work required quick thinking and fast drawing in a high pressure environment.
These skills developed further to create humorous animated segments on the popular Footy Show on the Nine Network.
Now Andrew utilizes his skills to work in live environments with corporate meetings and group brainstorming sessions. Andrew’s specialty is in not only being able to draw quick images to help communicate key points during meetings, but his ability to understand corporate concepts and clarify their essence in a way that is memorable and entertaining.
From Annual General meetings to strategy think tanks Andrew has worked with clients like ANZ and Toshiba to help communicate their ideas visually.
CAPTURING THE CONVERSATION
Have Andrew graphic record your next meeting, capturing the conversation visually on large format scroll paper or individual A1 sheets with his unique ability to distil the essence of a topic. Andrew also has the unique ability of adding a touch of humour to the images to make them more memorable without distorting or trivialising the message. The visuals can then be digitised and animated if required for online learning, and for extra value Andrew can provide caricatures of the key stakeholders.
HAVE YOUR GRAPHIC RECORDING DIGITISED IN AN ANIMATION
Once Andrew has created a visual diary of your meeting he can digitise the illustrations to create an animation of the session you can distribute online.
“If a normal picture is a thousand words, Andrew’s pictures equal a book.
As a presenter of business courses and marketing concepts, getting the message across to diverse groups of participants is the most difficult part of the job – trying to convey one message in many different verbal ways to try and reach as many as I can while they are present. Then I came across Andrew Fyfe. Problem solved. I just can’t believe how effective Andrew’s work is. Furthermore, being anywhere near Andrew as he draws is probably the most fun you can have in a work day.”
