It’s a wrap! You feel inspired by that great conference you have attended. Tomorrow things are going to be different. You go home with new ideas and full commitment to try out that cool practice the keynote speaker told you about. But when you’re back in your office the day to day business requires your full attention again and soon most conference learnings become hard to remember.

If this sounds familiar to you, this workshop might be interesting. Have you ever tried sketchnoting? Or do you think that only works for real artists? That’s exactly what Nienke Alma thought when she joined a sketchnoting workshop during an open space session three years ago. “This could be fun, but probably I will never be good enough to put this into practice”. She was wrong: soon enough she found out the amazing effect on her conference experience and memory by just changing the way she took notes.
You don’t have to become a visual artist. Sketchnoting isn’t about perfection. It is just a way to activate new parts of your brain that enhances your listening. In this workshop Nienke Alma wants to inspire you by sharing her own sketchnoting experiences and providing tips & tricks. Moreover, she encourages you to try it out. Be prepared to do some actual sketchnoting during the workshop!

Learning Outcomes:
  • Learn how to make sketchnoting valuable for yourself
  •  Experience the difference between sketchnoting and taking regular written notes, especially with respect to the way you remember what you have heard
  • Find out how sketchnoting could be applied in your daily job
