Sketching Master

I have always been a compulsive note-taker. In meetings, training, and conferences I have used this as a way to concentrate and understand certain topics. Over the years this doodling has evolved into more of a visual note-taking technique or sketchnoting. That is how the Sketching Master was born.

About Talia Lancaster

I love that this form of note-taking activates the four modes of learning: audio, read-write, visual, and kinaesthetic / movement. It’s also a way for people to remember a conversation in a fun and engaging way.

Visual Thinking has played a big part of my career as a Learning and Development consultant, Scrum Master, Agile Coach, and Facilitator. I have used visuals to collaborate with teams, ideate and capture conversations.

I now use design, hand drawing and live graphic recording to document important information and assist companies all over the world in communicating complex concepts.
