Tap into the power of your visual brain.
Sketchnoting is a creative superpower, and I want to help you wield it.
Imagine a world where you actually remember and apply the ideas you learn about in the books you read and the conferences you attend.
Imagine a world where your meetings don't run in circles, but instead lead to informed decision-making, with everyone on the same page.
Imagine a world where the presentations you give and stories you tell actually land and stick with the audience you're trying to reach.
Imagine a world where the genius inside of you can fully express itself.
That's the world I want to help you enter.
And sketchnoting is the gateway to it.
Sketchnoting is a note-taking technique that taps into both the verbal and visual processing powers of your brain in a way that makes you a better learner, problem-solver, and storyteller.
I'm here to help you build your sketchnoting skills and apply those skills to the work that you care about.
Meet Your Host
Hi, I'm Doug!
After getting a Master of Arts in Teaching on my way to becoming a high school math, science, and EFL teacher, I got pulled into the world of visual thinking thanks to Sunni Brown's TED Talk about the power of doodling.
For the past decade I've been exploring that world and building educational materials for others who want to apply this creative toolset to their personal and professional life.
The deeper I dive into the world of visual thinking, the more excited I get about what you can do with these skills.
