Great for Teams

I lead teams on a shared journey through drawing, listening lettering and other key sketchnoting skills, to build their confidence, and unify them as a team. I love tailoring workshop content to your specific team needs.

About The Sketchnote Workshop

After releasing The Sketchnote Handbook, and The Sketchnote Workbook, Mike began sharing the core ideas and principles from his books at talks and conferences around the world. The response encouraged him to create a hands-on workshop designed for a small group of students. With help from an educational designer, He's built a learner-focused sketchnoting curriculum for beginning students that helps you apply sketchnoting in your own life the same day.

The Sketchnote Workshop teaches you to think in a new way, while having a fun, encouraging time learning principles and techniques.
