5 Building Blocks of Visual Collaboration: Webinar recap

We were joined by Bigger Picture's founder Ole Qvist-Sørensen last week, along with our own Mark Tippin, for a webinar exploring the basics of Visual Collaboration, the title of the newly released book co-authored by Ole.

This webinar scratched the surface of building block #1 (but stay tuned for more webinars in this series that will deep dive into each one).

Ole asked a few people to live sketch alongside him and Mark, and invited the audience to participate from wherever they were calling in from as well. Pen + paper, stylus + tablet -- come one, come all. ✍️
