Reactions from Past Students
It was truly wonderful to have you in our studio to teach and inspire.
We were remarking afterwards how we were a bit spent — but at the same time creatively energized — at the end of the day.
A tell-tale sign of a fantastic class, I'd say!
So, thank you again for working with us, being so patient, and bringing such great energy across the entire session!

Thank you for a great few days! The team walked away excited about using graphic recording/facilitation.
We actually have a couple of team members that will record for a strategy session this week as a result.
We are officially hanging out our shingle!

I had a blast! Loved the continuous action in the class... loved to draw and draw and draw again.
I found that this class helped me confirm a passion of mine to illustrate a concept rather than note it in text. The class validated that graphic notes, graphic facilitation is a valuable methodology for business presentations. I have died a thousand PPT deaths…
Enough!! I’m converted.”
