• Transform Speeches with Visual Note Taking

    A Picture Worth a Thousand Words

     
    FROM THE Spring 2018 ISSUE
     

Many speakers like to imagine their words are painting an inspiring picture in listeners’ minds, which can actually be the case with visual note taking.  

Planners can work with professionals at Chicago-based Ink Factory to transform talks and event presentations into real-time drawings and visuals. This service, also known as graphic recording, helps audiences conceptualize and remember ideas better because the information is physically represented in front of them.

Ink Factory can turn a speech, lecture, lesson or training session into real-time visuals that stay with your company forever. Work with them to outline events and discuss branding and color palette before the big day, and then get files you can store for the future. “We provide digital images within two business days of the event,” says Teresa Rawlings, director of operations.  

Chicago hospitality collective 16” on Center partners with local businesses to turn everything from bars to theaters into serviceable event venues. Founding partners Bruce Finkelman and Craig Golden have transformed 14 businesses (like Bite Café, Dusek’s Board & Beer, MONEYGUN, The Promontory, Thalia Hall and more) and have provided a single point of contact for event planners interested in utilizing these spaces as venues.
