The 2018-2019 MAFN D.C. Series – The Year in Review 

This is your opportunity to witness and contribute to our community’s collective memory through the use of a MAFN Organization Recent History (created with a GROVE Consultants International timeline). You will also learn how to annotate and expand on MAFN’s history via select application of the GROVE’s Group Graphic Keyboard.

In our session, we will focus on how to use select graphic guides, keywords, photos, doodles, and other graphic facilitation tricks to engage the audience and demonstrate how to add both insight and (potentially) laughter to future meetings. 

We will explore and demonstrate: 

  • How you can use the room as a “memory theater.”
  • How you can create a large format “organizational history” or “map.”
  • How to choose the best format to use when capturing process-oriented charts or graphics i.e., when you should use a poster, create a list, cluster ideas, use a grid, diagram a process, create a drawing, or organize/summarize data.

At the end of the day, you’ll be able to explain how to use these techniques share your “Aha!” moments, and enjoy a “gallery walk” that serves as a review of the 2018-19 MAFN DC workshop series.
