Maketa was personable and inviting and he was a great facilitator - leading but not directive. He kept us on track without squelching the creative process. Well done!

The way that he captured everything that was said created a visual transcript that we kept referring back to over and over again. We were really able to see the progress we made.

Maketa is an Associate of the Grove Consultants International, global leaders of visual planning and graphic facilitation.

*Facilitation as defined by The Grove


Graphic facilitation integrates visual mapping and graphic language with the art of leading groups. It is a creative tool for guiding groups with visual metaphors that encourage engagement at the appropriate level - from high level visioning to "on the ground" operational planning. Graphic recording is the art of listening and capturing ideas and dialog using images, icons and visual mapping. Graphics support visual thinking and allow groups to find relevant patterns of understanding within the information that they generate and share.
