You'll have enough time to practice with each topic, ask questions from industry pros, and try your hand at real-time visual note-taking. This is a jumping-off point for implementing the visual language in your day to day life!
New and more experienced visual practitioners are welcome, as you'll receive one-on-one feedback from industry professionals.
