In our chat about the differences between graphic recording and graphic facilitation, Nitya mentioned recording work that she had done with The Portland Creative Conference.

Nitya was first introduced to the world of capturing ideas visually by Tony Buzan, who is the inventor of mind mapping.

When she brought her skills from India to the states, Nitya connected with XPLANE and On Your Feet, both based in Portland, Oregon. (You might recognize the name On Your Feet because its co-founder was former podcast guest Gary Hirsch.)

Nitya and fellow graphic facilitator Brandy Agerbeck are working with the International Forum of Visual Practitioners to survey the field in order to get a sense for the different types of work people are doing and move toward some common standards for engaging in this line of work.
