Illustration Partner

VisualTalks present information your audience needs, in the way they can process it best. VisualTalks are whiteboard illustrations (or graphic recordings) to enhance understanding and retention, increase participant engagement and create concise and beautiful summaries of information.

We listen carefully, process what we hear, and draw it on the spot. We capture it truthfully, and present it in a way that facilitates further thought and discussion.
