Also you can have a look at the rough version after the jump.
I popped along to ‘The Business Growth Show‘ in Oxford today. It was a nice networking event about…er.. um.. business growth. And it had free coffee and sandwiches. I made some sketchnotes during the two talks we were given at the event:
Steve Clarke (web):
Paul Avins (web):
Both of these chaps provided stirring business advice which could be further augmented by buying their books and joining their clubs. They went a little fast so I developed the ‘speech bubbles around a head’ method.
I went to JQuery UK in Oxford on 10th Feb and it was an excellent conference. It had a really good crowd, it was perfectly organised with cool comp bags (including an awesome coffee code coffe mug) and great freebies (Blackberry doling out Playbooks). The talks were fascinating insights into this cutting edge web technology and afterwards there was a brilliant party!
I made sketchnotes of most of the speakers talks. Having come from a web background I managed to cotton on to most of the tech stuff, but sometimes it escaped me. I was amazed that the audience LOVED the live code demo’s on stage. It was a niche crowd. But a crowd that makes up a community of some of the most interesting web developers around. You can see the sketchotes I made via this page and there are few of the random one off ones below.
Eric Ries (website, twitter) took part in a Q&A at Leancamp, and these are my sketchnotes from it. He is an engaging speaker and the hall was packed! He is also the guy who came up with ‘Lean Start Up’ so it’s no surprise. Thiswas at the end of the day and my sketchnotes transformed more into ‘Live illustration’ style headlines.
John Mullins (web) teaches at the London Business School and was talking about his new book ‘Getting to Plan B: Breaking Through to a Better Business Model’. His 30 minute talk at Leacamp was not only very interesting but I enjoyed the fact it was delivered by someone who knows how to capture the attention of a whole, large, room!
I wandered into a random session in the afternoon at Leancamp. It was about how to organise a start-up weekend delivered by Don Ritzen, Co Founder & CEO of Rockstart Accelerator. So I had no idea what a Start Up weekend was when I entered the room. But after sitting in the session I want to go to one!

I attended 4 sessions at Leancamp London 2 where I made sketchnotes. These are the notes from the first one, a talk on Lean startup from Rob Fitzpatrick (website, twitter). It was useful to me as I haven’t read the book yet – don’t tell anyone!
I recommend ‘warming up’ before any kind of drawing, and I hadn’t warmed up at all before Rob’s session. By the time I got onto a second page I was ready to go for the rest of the day!
