Rachel Burnham: Psychological Safety


More than pretty notes

Sketchnoting is a versatile skill that not only can be used for creating memorable personal notes but can be used to enhance effectiveness throughout learning, thinking, and working.  It is both a tool for personal development and can also be used in the workplace for effective communication, to aid learning and productive working.

You may have seen and shared wonderful Sketchnotes online and perhaps have aspired to create them. Well, now is your opportunity to have a go.

This session will provide a practical introduction to creating and using Sketchnoting.  Much of the session will be hands-on and get you involved in drawing and beginning to develop some of the key skills for Sketchnoting.  Don’t worry, you don’t need to be an artist to be an effective Sketchnoter or participate in this session   Rachel is experienced at getting non-drawers, and people who haven’t drawn since they were a child started with drawing and Sketchnoting.  She creates a warm and friendly environment in which all can have a go. So what are you waiting for, book a place now!

Your takeaways:

  • Confidence to have a go at drawing simple pictures and graphics.
  • Practical tips for getting started when creating a Sketchnote.
  • 6 ways you can use Sketchnoting to aid learning, thinking and working.
  • A resource guide to help you get started with Sketchnoting.


Rachel has been sharing Sketchnotes since 2015 and has live Sketchnoted at the major L&D conferences in the UK, as well as undertaking commissions from clients.  Not only does she Sketchnote herself, but she has delivered workshops introducing a wide range of professionals: leaders, engineers, health workers, software designers, health & safety specialists, HR, coaches, and L&D folk to Sketchnoting skills.

She recently created Sketchnote chapter summaries for ‘HR for Hybrid Working’


and coauthored “Using Sketchnoting as a revision aid with forensic students”


She is passionate about understanding why and how Sketchnoting works and what the evidence is for this.
