Client Testimonials
“Glenn ….. understands that graphic facilitation is far more than drawing, he demonstrates a strong ability to listen, interpret, model and understands when to use graphic facilitation to follow but also lead a discussion”

"Glenn joined me for a large Indigenous strategy summit attended by a hundreds of local leaders from Cape York, the Minister for Indigenous Affairs, and a number of Indigenous dignitaries. Glenn's work was genuinely a centrepiece for discussion and understanding"

- Sanjay Verma. Two Collaborate/ PwC. Sydney

"We engaged Glenn’s services as part of an all team offsite for Technology Services. We specifically wanted to create a visible artefact that we could hang in the office that would act as an going reminder of the day. We provided Glenn a high-level brief in the week ahead of the event and he turned up completely prepared (and early!) on the day of the event. As different people spoke, Glenn was constantly scribing and drawing key insights from the presentations. His ability to extract key points and convey into pictures was amazing! We walked away from the day with digital and physical artefacts that we hung the next day in the office and after 2 months the team continue to refer to them on a daily basis. Glenn was a pleasure to deal with, nothing was too much trouble and the quality of his work was excellent - I cannot recommend him highly enough!

- Jo Hayes. Australian Super. Melbourne

"Glenn and the work he produced was so well received by community and by our member organisations that we have engaged Glenn for a number of events over the past year including community forums, planning workshops and the 2019 members summit. There are many layers to working in this complex environment in the East Kimberley which include geographic and cultural considerations. Glenn has shown an incredible ability to adapt to any circumstance and always works in a respectful and culturally appropriate way. He has become well known and liked in the region and his involvement always adds fantastic value to any of our events"

- Danielle Tucker. Binarri Binyja Yarrawoo. East Kimberley

...In addition to sitting in the rooms with us at the various events, Glenn was able to also draw us
our strategy on a page. We were able to discuss changes and ideas with Glenn, and his
turnaround in providing to us further drafts was highly professional and insightful until we
were happy with the final piece. We have embedded his illustrations in our strategic plan and have also taken the master documents with us out on field trips into bush meetings in order to engage with our members who for the most part, English is a second or third language. Through Glenn’s illustrations and attention to detail we have been able to engage Aboriginal people in rich and diverse dialogue and stimulate conversations that can, at times be very difficult. His pictorials broke down a lot of those barriers for us. We had Elders, senior Traditional Owners, young people and highly skilled individuals who were able to look at the artwork, interpret the story and journey and then engage with the consultants and each other.
