The Big Picture

A picture is worth a thousand words. Graphic recording (sketchnoting) is the art of capturing conversations real-time with hand drawn pictures and text.

So, what happens next?

People are engaged, they remember more, they “see” what is being “said”, and have “a ha” moments. Graphic recording enriches facilitation and learning.

Take A Peek

Graphic recording projects across multiple topics including
business, leadership, faith, health, education and community.

I hired Lisa for my first large live event and she did a phenomenal job. Her graphic facilitation skills are excellent, and her illustrations added so much depth to the conference. Participants were going up to the wall and talking about the session content, which served to reinforce and deepen the learning from the session. I hired Lisa for my next event on the spot!
