Our Letter to Event Planners | Collective Next

­Hello, Event Planners!

Our decades of working together has fostered deep respect for your commitment to creating memorable client experiences. As solution designers and facilitators, we share this commitment, and—like you—we understand the challenges involved in creating dynamic large-scale events…virtually.

We’re here to help you provide unique solutions. Just as graphic facilitation and visual communications engage participants in face-to-face settings, so too they bring the virtual environment alive. We’ve witnessed firsthand the power of graphic facilitation to humanize the digital space and draw individual participants into a meaningful collective experience.

Imagine your participants welcomed into their online event with hand drawn graphics and a single-frame visual story that synthesizes individual responses to a pre-event question into a collective image. Imagine a speaker’s content communicated not through standard PowerPoint slides but with high-impact presentations. Then imagine a follow-up panel discussion made vivid and accessible through the real-time visual capture of key themes and ideas. Next, breakout work and report backs become vibrant through live digital drawing, which both delights participants and weaves together varied perspectives. And finally, after the event wraps, imagine if the experience could be kept alive through easily shared images that are posted to social media or printed out as physical reminders kept nearby.

Our goal—now more than ever—is to partner with and support you as we navigate this new world. We welcome the chance to talk with you about how we can help you best serve your clients. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us at (617) 517-9840 or [email protected].
