Sketchnoting Chick-fil-A Leadercast 2011

Images 1

I'm very excited to announce that I've been commissioned to capture live sketchnotes at Chick-fil-A Leadercast, happening on Friday, May 6th, 2011 in Atlanta, GA.

Sketchnoting the event has been in the works for a while now. Just last week the details were finalized, airline tickets purchased and I've started planning for the event.

About the Chick-fil-A Leadercast

If you haven't heard of it before, Chick-fil-A Leadercast is a one-day leadership event, which is also broadcast live to hundreds of sites across North America and the world. Read more about the event on the Leadercast site.

I'll be capturing sketchnotes of 11 speakers, including: Seth Godin, Sir Ken Robinson, John Maxwell, Alison Levine, Erin Gruwell, Dan Cathy, Muhtar Kent, Dave Ramsey, Suzy Welch, Mack Brown and Frans Johansson.

Entering New Territory

I'm very excited to sketchnote a leadership event, which is a bit different area than the design community where I've typically worked. This is a great challenge and an opportunity to share sketchnotes and the idea behind them with a whole new community of people.

We're planning are to capture my sketchnote work in real-time for the live broadcast to other sites. I've only done this at a small scale with the Visual Note-Taking 101 webinar in 2009, so this should be a fun challenge.

I'll also post my sketchnotes here and in my Flickr stream, so you can enjoy them while learning what the Chick-fil-A Leadercast is all about.

Thank You

Thank you Jeff Shinabager for making the connection and to the Chick-fil-A Leadercast team, especially Rachel Christopher and Stephanie Holcombe for the opportunity.

WAY TO GO MIKE!!!!!!!!!!! I am so excited to hear that you are doing this...I'm hoping to make it to the Leadership Conference (@one of the telecast in and around ATL). I will so look forward to seeing your work on your photostream. Any chance they'll create a book from your sketches.

You are such an inspiration for my love of Typography....

Safe travel to the ATL and home again...
