Show & Tell: Mapping Obama’s Speech

Graphic facilitator Brandy Agerbeck has hit another home run with Obama’s inauguration speech, wonderfully illustrated in nearly-real time. And while the experience was a first for Brandy — she normally facilitates messier conversations between multiple people, not succinct monologues — it was a true exercise in illustrating history.

Obama's Inauguration Speech

Graphic facilitation is the art-science of mapping a conversation as it occurs. It comes particularly handy during meetings and brainstorming sessions where ideas are being rapidly thrown around, bouncing off and copulating with each other to produce new, better ones — that’s when the graphic facilitator, madly drawing a huge real-time mural of what is being said, really… well… facilitates.
