Using the Power of Visual Thinking to
Move Groups Forward
As a graphic facilitator, Christina Merkley helps organizations reach greater clarity and make better, informed decisions through a visual process that allows clients to "see what they mean".
The work juxtaposes her childhood love of doodling and drawing with a decade of experience and training in organizational development and change management. With 600+ meetings under her belt, she has generated creative meeting maps and facilitated strategic planning and visioning for a host of corporate, not-for-profit and governmental agencies, including Hewlett Packard, eBay, Stanford University, the U.S. Department of Energy, Parks Canada, Readers Digest Funds and The Gordon & Betty Moore Foundation.
Christina holds a masters degree in Organizational Development & Transformation and spent four years with The Grove Consultants International, the San Francisco firm that pioneered the field of graphic facilitation. She is also trained as a Co-active Coach through The Coaches Training Institute.
Based in picturesque Victoria, the capital of British Columbia, Canada, Christina injects fun and practicality into meetings, conferences and retreats both in her hometown and throughout North America and Europe. She also teaches the skills of graphic facilitation and graphic recording for those who are intrigued with these creative and strategic skills.
