Lynn Carruthers

In 2000 Lynn Carruthers completed her training in the basics
of graphic recording at The Grove Consultants in San Francisco.
She brought graphic recording to Global Business Network where as the in-house graphic recorder she founded the visual practice. In July of 2014 Lynn decided to leave her corporate job and strike out on her own.

In addition to graphic recording, Lynn brings her years of
experience in meeting and process design to help clients plan
effective, unique and - where possible, fun - workshops, events,
and experiences. 

Lynn’s graphic recording of events and meetings is magical! She is able to involve participants in the process by helping them see their words come alive… literally as they speak. I have worked with Lynn several times and highly recommend her as a top-notch visual practitioner. She is skilled not only in graphic recording but also in teaching people they too can draw and how to incorporate the concepts of visual thinking into their daily life. Workshop participants rave about their time with Lynn and walk out feeling more confident in their ability to share ideas and communicate visually.

Lynn and new IFVP president Jenny Trautman

Lynn's two year term as president of the International Forum of Visual Practitioners (IFVP) ended with a bang in July 2015. Lynn designed and produced AustinTX 2015, the IFVP's 20th annual conference. IFVP members from all over the world worked with Lynn for 15 months to create what many call the "best conference ever". AustinTX 2015 sold out with 150 members from 17 countries, 23 US states and 4 Canadian provinces. On the last morning of the conference Jenny Trautman began her term as the new president.

Lynn’s work is archived in the Smithsonian Institution and has been featured in the San Francisco Chronicle. Her recordings were the the first-ever “analytical artwork” hung in the halls of the CIA. Lynn has presented at RISD, California College of the Arts’ DMBA program as well as Stanford University's MBA program.

“Thank you for the thorough yet graphically beautiful recording of the proceedings at our recent staff retreat. You do an exceptional job! It was and will be a very useful map as we review and reflect on the session.”
