Why Live Sketchnoting Is Stressing You Out

For those of us that like to learn, when we go to a live event like a conference or a workshop we want to get the most out of that experience.

Sketchnoting can help you do that. Taking visual notes keeps you engaged and provides a useful artifact that reminds you of your experience that day.

But there’s a dark side to live sketchnoting, and that’s what I address in this video.

That darkness plagues anybody who’s brave enough to open a sketchbook and put pen to paper among a sea of potential onlookers and with information coming in a mile a minute.

In this video I identify that fear and show you why it’s unfounded.
