Spice up your conference notes with sketchnotes

Do you write down everything you hear, and then throw away the notes? Missing the whole sessions?

In this session we will look at another way to take notes. A way that makes you listen better, remember the main topics and creates notes you actually want to look at afterwards.

Don't worry, you don't need to have excellent drawing skills... you just need to write semi-legibly and know how to draw a box, a circle and a line.

This will be a sketch-along session for those who want. Bring a pen (or two) and a few blank papers.

This is a session that is best suited early in the conference
