For the past of several years, Hannah Sanford has joined us at our conferences with the purpose of capturing the real-time knowledge transfer between data professionals during the in-depth presentations we host. As the speaker, or panel of speakers, discusses a topic, Hannah uses her unique style of visual communication to illustrate these shared thoughts and present them in a large-scale graphically recorded mural.

"As a graphic recorder, my role is to work quietly off to the side of the group. As each speaker talks, I listen keenly, quickly distill all the information, and capture the critical messages from each conversation in words, colors, and pictures on large, 4’x 8’ visual murals mounted on the wall."  – Hannah Sanford

A bit about Hannah Sanford’s background…

After her extensive work, experiences, and studies in microbiology at Harvard Medical School, the National Institute of Health, and Emergent BioSolutions, Hannah discovered a passion that combined both a love of the analytical world and her creative balance. This was the birth of her transition into the world of graphic facilitation, graphic recording, and strategic visualization, and ultimately her path to becoming the visual process professional we see in action today.
