GDC/BC AGM + Sam Bradd … Drawing Change!

Attend our annual AGM, shape the GDC BC future, and hear about drawing change by Sam Bradd!


It's that time of year again, the GDC BC AGM is fast approaching. Let's celebrate and reflect on 2018 and prepare for an amazing year ahead! We are excited to have guest speaker, Sam Bradd, a graphic facilitator and author with Drawing Change at our 2019 AGM.

As part of its AGM, GDC BC is proud to present the "Sam Bradd - Design Change!"

Sam Bradd believes that meetings can leave us better than we started, and the answer is to use visuals. In boardrooms and conferences around the world, graphic recorders, graphic facilitators, and visual practitioners are using visual tools, including live drawing, to help groups unlock their creative potential. This talk will explore what a graphic facilitation career can be, and how designers and visual practitioners can collaborate.
