The Art & Science of Visual Recording

Our brains are hardwired to retain visual information longer and more accurately than text or bullet-points, which makes visual note taking a powerful tool.

Rally your friends and start your morning with the city’s best Visual Recorders for a hands-on, high energy workshop. Learn all about the science behind visual recording, see the pros work their magic as they demonstrate different recording styles, and walk away with tips for how to make your notes more visual and your collaborations more engaging.

After a brief history on visual recording, our experts will team up with participants for a round of challenging exercises. Get ready to grab a spot on the wall as the room bursts into drawing! We’ll wrap up by giving participants an opportunity to vote for their favorites.
