These large-scale images—drawn live—help clients navigate the complex territory of their meetings, workshops and conferences. In the field, Brandy is known as a spatial superstar and a synthesis zealot. A lifelong drawer, she is most enthusiastic about drawing as a thinking tool.

According to Agerbeck, "Graphic Facilitation works for anyone who values being listened to, teams who want to understand each other -- those who want to see their work made transparent and tangible." I first learned graphic facilitation at the Grove several years ago, and have used it ever since. It's simple to do, but hard to perfect. It takes time and practice. The Graphic Facilitators Guide is full of practical, simple advice, useful for practitioners as well as those that want to dip their toe in the water. It's structured around 25 guiding principles. I found myself chuckling over the field guide to speakers, having come across the motivational speaker, who wanders and weaves passionately through their topic and is sometimes difficult to follow, and the detail oriented person who spouts facts and figures and can drive a graphic recorder crazy, I've fallen in love with the big picture person who can help in neatly summarizing what's going on.
The Guide is chock full of useful tips. The first thing novice graphic facilitators notice is how the world speed up when you have a marker in your hand. Brandy shows you how to be quick like a bunny. She lists the qualities of a successful graphic facilitator. (Most people think it's about being able to draw well. I've found it's more about being able to spell well.) We all make mistakes, Brandy has advice about how to overcome that, from the obvious -- pack some tape or sticky labels to use like correction fluid to the sublime -- draw a red squiggly line under a misspelled word to imitate spell-check.
Apart from the practical advice, there is deeper wisdom in the pages. Graphic Facilitation, According to Agerbeck, is equal parts Listening, Thinking and Drawing. Not Listening, Thinking and DRAWING. That said, people are still drawn to the Draw. But one of the biggest fears that people have is picking up a marker and showing off your drawing skills in public. People don't like public speaking, yet everyone speaks every day. When it comes to public drawing, most of us haven't done that since kindergarten. Fear not. Agerbeck shows you the building blocks of her own unique drawing style -- The Essential Eight -- and breaks down the logic of when and how to apply them.
This is one of my favorite books in the industry because it's an easy read, I love Brandy's concepts and the way she thinks, and the illustrations are awesome. It gives me permission to do the work and I have found my own style and developed my own concepts inspired by the information she so generously shares with the reader. If you've watched Brandy in action, it makes even more sense.
I look forward to reading Brandy's next book!
In a style that is both charming and pragmatic at the same time, she lays out pretty much everything you need to know if you are venturing into the world of graphic facilitation...and many things to help you grow as a practitioner if you've been doing graphic facilitation for a while. Wondering what graphic facilitators bring to the table? (Or how to talk about it?) She spells out the powers of graphic facilitation. Want to understand how graphic facilitators approach the work? Brandy shares the principles that guide our graphic facilitation practices, along with the core skill sets we draw upon...and how to strengthen them in your own practice. Wondering how to be in the room on a project with a client? How to work with a co-facilitator? How to engage - or draw boundaries with - the participants? It's all in there! Of particular value is the glimpse into Brandy's head regarding synthesis and chart creation: there's a whole section on the different levels of synthesis one can apply to the same presentation...and it's elegant in its genius. If nothing else, the section on synthesis is worth buying the book right there. Except that the entire book is pure gold. Every part of it. Fun to read, simple to understand, and darned practical! I cannot recommend this book highly enough...to aspiring graphic facilitators and veterans practitioners alike.
