Many speakers like to imagine their words are painting an inspiring picture in listeners’ minds, which can actually be the case with visual note taking.  

Planners can work with professionals at Chicago-based Ink Factory to transform talks and event presentations into real-time drawings and visuals. This service, also known as graphic recording, helps audiences conceptualize and remember ideas better because the information is physically represented in front of them.

Ink Factory can turn a speech, lecture, lesson or training session into real-time visuals that stay with your company forever.
