THE CLOSEST I've been to Amsterdam was Schiphol Airport in the late 90s on the way to and from Frankfurt, Germany. I imagined spending a few extra days in Amsterdam, but it wasn't to be.
It took 15 years, but I'm headed to Amsterdam in November!
DSGNDAY Conference: November 11 (All day)
I'll be presenting my Sketchnote Mini-Workshop in the afternoon, teaching the basic elements of sketchnoting that students can follow along with as I present, then we'll do a sketchnoting challenge together. It's going to be awesome!
Be sure to check out the full program of fantastic speakers, featuring Mark Boulton, Leisa Reichelt, Val Head, Stephen Hay, Bonny Colville-Hyde, Peter Boersma, and Laura Kalbag. I can't wait to meet them all.
Amsterdam UX Meetup: November 10 (7pm)
I've also been invited to present on sketchnotes at the Amsterdam UX meetup on November 10th, 7pm at Publitas.com HQ in Amsterdam.
I'll be presenting Lessons Learned from Sketchnotes a talk in which I share what I've learned through the process of developing sketchnotes and building the sketchnoting community. It's going to be great!
Sketchnote Coffee Meetup: November 10 (Noon)
I'm talking with my friend Jay Henriquez about an informal public sketchnote coffee meetup around lunchtime on November 10th at a coffee shop somewhere in Amsterdam. If you are interested in attending this event, or have a good spot in mind, let Jay or me know.
I'll bring my orange markers to sign books, so bring your book, and come and say hello if you attend on of these events!
