The standard way to record a meeting is to list people's names, the topics, and action items. The visual way is to doodle a rectangle (the table) populated by figures (the participants) sitting around the table with their comments as cartoon word balloons.
I doodle all the time, even if I'm on the train.
Even if you can't draw, do a little doodle or rip an illustration from a magazine - these visuals will help bring your idea to life.
