Graphic facilitation is a powerful visual tool used to transform complex ideas into simple and easy to understand images. The process of using words and visuals increases memory retention and promotes innovation and creative thinking. Since many people think in pictures, language used during discussions are captured graphically, which makes information easy to digest and refer back to throughout and after an event or meeting. Someone trained in the skill of graphic facilitation typically stands at the front, at a giant board drawing in real time the key concepts with supporting details. The graphic facilitation is there to 100% support the content from the room to bring their words to life and create that extra value added benefit to all who attend. Visual charts are created alongside and with participants.

What previous participants have said about the workshop:

"The workshop well exceeded my expectations and I would highly recommend this workshop to others. To be honest, I was skeptical that Ashton would be able to instill enough confidence in me that I could draw in public by end of day. Not only did I draw in public, but I felt comfortable doing it and actually had a lot of fun! Ashton was warm and welcoming to all participants and really set a positive tone for the day - encouraging us to ask questions, creating a sense of community and sharing her knowledge and experiences. Ashton's experience in both facilitation and art provide her with the unique ability to read a room and capture the moments almost effortlessly." - Tara. J.

"Ashton's non-invasive/non-demanding teaching style allows for a relaxed and highly effective learning environment. The visual recording/facilitating skills she taught me have greatly influenced my work, both at the library and deeply embedded its self into my coaching and consulting work in ways that have greatly added to my ability to convey information and has increased the prestige with which I am perceived. Thank you so much, Ashton!" - Chris. W.


Ashton Rodenhiser is passionate about lifting the creative spirit in everyone that she meets. She has followed her passion for helping people communicate their ideas and combined that with creativity by founding Mind's Eye Creative Consulting.

You’ll often find her with markers in hand as she’s helping bring ideas to life through graphic recording and graphic facilitation practices.

She’s worked with diverse groups, from non-profits to Fortune 500 companies and has drawn over 3000 graphics/illustrations of meetings, presentations and sessions either on paper or digitally.

When she’s not working with clients, she’s being silly with her three young kids and husband in rural Nova Scotia.
