Did you miss Sunni Brown's JSHC Distinguished Lecture in defense of doodling? Watch it below!

Sunni Brown is author of The Doodle Revolution. She’s known for her large-scale, live content visualizations, and she is also the leader of the Doodle Revolution – a growing effort to debunk the myth that doodling is a distraction. Using common sense, experience, and neuroscience, Sunni is proving that to doodle is to ignite your whole mind. Her consultancy, BrightSpot I.D., specializes in visual thinking and information design. She was trained in graphic facilitation at the Grove Consultants International, a San Francisco-based company that pioneered the use of large-scale visuals in business settings. Sunni co-founded VizThink Austin, which under her leadership grew to be the nation's largest visual thinking community.
