Without your generous assistance our new association would not have progressed to a stage where we now feel confident to provide the services necessary to prostate cancer support group leaders and members. We appreciate the knowledge you shared, which only a dedicated professional could offer us. Chairperson, PCaHELP


Thank you very much for doing an excellent job at facilitating the targeted cancer research session at yesterday’s Forum. Without your guidance and expertise, I am sure that we would not have got such a vast amount of information from our guests... the findings are invaluable. Development Officer, Dept of Health

Graphic Recording

Tuna Blue offers graphic recording / scribing / sketchnoting at workshops, forums and conferences.

Graphic recording can fundamentally shift the way your group thinks and makes decisions together

Take a look at some of Will’s recent graphic recording work below and follow his instagram @willbessen. You can also download this outline to get a better sense of how graphic recording can work with your event.

Graphic facilitation and recording is a great way to capture the creative ideas and trends that manifest within a workshop.

Graphic recording often works really well for content heavy or conceptual style workshops such as leadership development or high level strategy days.

Tuna Blue can incorporate graphic recording into your next event, whether it be as a value add to our own workshop facilitation service or as a support scribe role for your own in-house facilitation.

You provide the space, the people and the ideas and we'll make sure to capture them in glorious colour, humour and inuendo!

Here's a video from a recent community engagement process we ran with the Shire of Augusta-Margaret River in 2016-17.

The challenge was to work with a diverse 30+ person Community Reference Group over multiple sessions to develop a comprehensive Vision and Strategic Roadmap for the region, as part of the Shire's Strategic Community Plan review process.

We delivered a series of six workshops with the Shire and community reference group that and we're really proud of it.
