Those moments after the seminar lunch: the audience is half-asleep and the speaker clicks on slide after slide on a fast pace. Brain-freeze has conquered the seminar hall. What to do? Well, maybe bring in a graphic recorder!
A seminar is a very traditional phenomenon and people have used drawings before, too, to spark things up but now, with the help of technology, it’s possible to exploit doodlings on a large scale. The real-time illustrations can be shown either on a side-screen (a wow-event!) or shortly after each presentation. Or you could go through the sketchnotes at the end of the day to make a summary of the day. All this can be done remotely, too.
Booking a graphic recorder into an event
When you book a graphic recorder to your event, it’s advisable to think about a couple of things beforehand: when and how will you be showing the sketchnotes to the audience and what kind of technology is needed? How will share the illustrations to social media during the event? How are the sketchnotes shared to the audience after the event? If you encounter troubles with these issues, ask Linda for help.
IPad and tech details
I’ll bring in my iPad and you provide the hdmi cable connection, right? When it comes to adapters, Linda will bring her own. The projector has to provide HD quality and the HDMI cables need to be long enough. We van even use an Apple TV device, it works nicely. Sometimes the iPad causes some troubles with its HCDP decoding but usually there’s a way to fix it. If all else fails we can use the VGA port.
Remote graphic day is a modern way of working (you know why) and there are actually two scenarios for doing it: larger events via stream or smaller webinars and workshops via e.g. Teams. There are technical solutions for both – ask Linda!
