Visual note-taking, also known as graphic recording, is a process of representing ideas with drawings and has been around for a few years now. These graphic recordings are a colorful and eye-catching way to capture content from a meeting or event. They also help your attendees better process and retain complex information. What are the ways of displaying these visuals during and after your event? Here are some ideas:
