Early in my days of learning the art and craft of graphic facilitation and knowledge work a mentor of mine imparted on me a piece of wisdom that I took to heart and bring to every client engagement I am a part of: “just show up and add value.”

That’s my mantra. That is my raison d’etre. And that is why I am proud and humbled to have received the following message from a recent client regarding Griot’s Eye’s conference illustration services:

“Thank you so very much for bringing your art and facilitation to our gathering. The timeline and boards are beautiful and truly enriched our participants’ experiences and their understanding of all that we covered together. We are thrilled that your art will live on as part of our participants’ memory of our gathering. Thank you also for your flexibility and for being part of our team; Purpose360 would not have been the same without you.” –Linda Kay Klein, Director Work on Purpose

Attendees from Echoing Green’s Purpose 360 event admire one of Griot’s Eye’s graphic recording boards from the gathering.


I am thankful for the opportunity wherever I go to just show up and add value.
