Agile2017 – Orlando, Florida

We were fortunate to be accepted to present our Visual Thinking (Sketching outside the Box) workshop at Agile2017 this year in Orlando, Florida.  All I can say is “Wow”! What an amazing experience meeting awesome, like-minded people from around the world. I did behave a bit like a groupie, and yes, possibly asked for some autographs…

I have compiled a little booklet of all of the sketchnotes that I did from the conference – some light reading until next year (and for those who may not have been able to attend).

Agile Africa 2016 – A sketchnote goldmine!

I attended the Agile Africa Conference with my company, IQ Business, on Monday and Tuesday this week. It’s always great to meet others in the field and listen to some amazing thinking from South Africa, Africa and abroad.

As you may have guessed, I spent every talk sketching live (my fingers are a bit sore) and it was so worth it! I managed to get most of the talks down on paper and I’ll use them to refer back to concepts and ideas that were shared. I’m going to share them here and I hope that you find value in them…

To view the whole programme and speakers, you can visit the Agile Africa website, it’s also worth having a look at all the Tweets which encapsulate a lot of the quotes from the talks – here is the tag and the handle for the conference.

There were also some other amazing sketches from the conference:
