Just got this note in from the International Forum of Visual Practitioners Conference about their upcoming conference. The deadline for getting in on the early bird pricing is fast approach. I have recommended this event consistently over the years (see my post a while back) and all who have attended under my recommendation have been very pleased with the experience. I will actually be speaking at this year’s event … doing a session on my graphic coaching niche and how I use graphics and Law of Attraction techniques with individuals, business partners and couples. Am really looking forward to presenting this info to my fellow practitioners. Will be nice to mingle with like minded folks – its been a few years since I have attended the conference … and the Santa Fe location did it for me. Have wanted to go there for years!

The conference agenda is packed with activities to appeal to anyone interested in working visually with groups or individuals in the private, not-for-profit and public sectors. It’s meant to push the envelope on what it means to work visually – from markers and paper to computers and computer software. Some scheduled highlights include:
David Isaacs, co-creator of The World Cafe and David Sibbet, Founder of The Grove Consultants International, will kick off the conference with a World Café. Among the questions up for café discussion: What if we stumbled onto examples of 21st Century visual language, what would that look like? With 21st Century communication on the rise, how will our industry change? Put another way, can we survive if all we do is draw on the wall at meetings?
Kristina Hooper Woolsey, director of New Media thinking Project and former director of Apple Multimedia Lab, will run a workshop titled “Page Space Vs. Screen Time.” She’ll tackle the future of page space – and, implicitly, graphic recording as people spend more and more time with their computers.
Joe Lambert of The Center for Digital Storytelling will demonstrate how to use the computer to make a static graphic recording chart come alive again after it’s been created.
Jan Adkins, graphic artist par excellence and former instructor at the Rhode Island School of Design will teach a session on Iconography
Carl Moore, founder of The Community Store, and Suzanne Otter, graphic recorder, will show how using graphics with community groups brings more success for those groups.
Christina Merkley of SHIFT-IT Coach will demonstrate how she uses graphics and Law of Attraction methods with individuals, couples and business partners in her coaching practice.
Brandy Agerbeck and Lynn Carruthers teach Graphic Recording 101 for new entrants into the field.
