Visual recording at the Brussels Tech Summit

While working as a Digital Content Strategist at the European Commission, I attended the Brussels Tech Summit last June, organised by Forum Europe and partnering with Accenture and Microsoft among many others. Great opportunity to try and capture the conference visually – session after session after session. That was the first challenge really, figuring out which sessions to attend as there were so many interesting topics, but also quite a few sessions taking place simultaneously or partly overlapping. So I sat down the night before and did a bit of a mapping exercise, resulting in my own personalised agenda for on the day:

What an amazing day! I was absolutely exhausted afterwards, but such a wonderful experience being able to share my visual notes with the audience, speakers and organisers immediately after each session. Got some great feedback from people afterwards which I’m very grateful for. Really recommend it if you’re learning the skill, just like me.
