The OGS Visioneers are gearing up for the premier annual graphic facilitation conference, the International Forum for Visual Practioners (IFVP), being held July 30 — August 2 at the Renaissance Arlington Capital View Hotel. IFVP is more than just a conference; it is an interactive experience designed to strengthen the visual practioner community from around the world. OGS Visioneering will play a key role in the conference, especially in the following activities:

- Leading a plenary session: Collaborative Communities
  Sunday, July 31 @ 11 a.m. — 12 p.m.

- Hosting a booth featuring a virtual facilitative environment using Google TiltBrush

- Visioneer Heather Martinez will host a session: “Beyond the Basics of Lettering”

- Visioneer Trent Wakenight will MC the IFVP’s talent show

The OGS Visioneers will demonstrate how OGSystems utilizes graphic facilitation and graphic recording to engage clients in strategic visioning and creative group processes that lead to well-defined goals, effective customer relationships, and dynamic outcomes. Additionally, the Visioneers will pilot new virtual graphic facilitation technology using Google TiltBrush. The Visioneers are the first to offer virtual reality (VR ) graphic facilitated services and are aiming to find new ways to build TiltBrush into OGSystems creative design practices.

For the plenary session, Visioneers will be joined by renowned kinetic sculptor Kevin Reese, who does with mobiles what the Visioneers do with markers. Kinetic sculptures, when combined with facilitated group processes, have the power to embody cultures and inspire communities. The mobile manifests the integration of visualization processes and innovation; it’s a part of the Immersive Engineering process that OGSystems can utilize to explore and model processes in new dimensions. Kevin’s skills will be instrumental in pulling together the facilitated outcome of the Visioneers’session.

OGS Visioneers facilitate meetings as well as bring graphic recording, graphic facilitation and strategic visualization to the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA), the National Reconnaissance Office (NRO), and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI).
