Visual communication is fast becoming a more valued way for people to express themselves, both in a personal and a business context. After spending most of my life doodling in the margins and drawing as a rare pass-time I was introduced to sketchnoting, which has allowed me make drawing part of my daily routine.
At the March Product Anonymous meetup I shared the benefits of visual communication with an enthusiastic group including Product Managers, Business Analysts and Developers. In the session I covered why visual communication is awesome and some tips for how to get back into it. I then focussed in on sketchnoting as a skill with my 7 steps to sketchnoting and then we practiced sketchnoting as a group.
The slides are available on slideshare and include the TED Talks we used during the session to practice, and a number of resources and references to further explore visual communication.
