Sketchnoting is like notetaking, but with more flair and more focus. Hand lettering and illustrations provide the flair; focus provides you the time to include the flair. Besides keeping you engaged during talks, visual notetaking makes it easier to retain what you’ve heard and share it later. This session describes a process that will help you create sketchnotes within the time constraints of the presentation or meeting you are recording.
