  • Great fundamental skills for effective notetaking! I love Gisele and all her lessons! They are super easy to follow and understand. Would recommend it of course!
  • Excellent quality content- but the title and description is misleading. Not directed towards sketchnoters, but those who want to explore graphic recording or visual facilitation as a career. Great and useful topics for sure-- but some of these lessons simply aren't relevant for my needs. I wish this was made clear before I purchased the course.
  • I listened to the free version and was very impressed. Gabrielle has excellent speaking sills, although she does say "ok" a lot. She's highly organized and articulate, very easy to listen to. I've been in meetings with a visual note taker. Gabrielle explained the process clearly and I'm looking forward to applying this in note taking. It's harder than it looks! You really have to think on your feet.
