BA Summit Southern Africa – 2016

I had the privilege of being invited to attend the BA Summit Southern Africa this year as the official Sketchnoter for the conference. The BA Summit is organised annually by the South African chapter of the IIBA, the IIBASA.

I must admit, I was extremely impressed by the high standard of the organisation of the event and the calibre of speakers.  I thoroughly enjoyed it and hope that the sketchnotes reflect this.

The organisers of the event put together a consolidated guide of all of the sketchnotes, which you can download here: “A Sketchnoter’s Guide to the BA Summit“.
