Using Visual Tools in Meetings

Visual tools in meetings promote creativity and can help participants develop a shared understanding and vision.


I meet with the meeting facilitator to decide where and when visual tools could be useful in the meeting.  We look at logistics and what materials will be needed.

Time required: 

Usually 1 days to prepare.


The meeting!  Tools I have used include developing a participatory 'Theory of Change' picture, a participatory vision board (with steps towards the goal) and the development of visual metaphors in a scenario planning workshop. 


If needed, I can prepare an infographic or whiteboard animation to summarise the outcomes of the visual exercise, or of the meeting overall.  This will be shared with the facilitators for feedback before finalising.

Time required: 

Infographic - 1 day, Animation 2- 3 days.
