Doodles, sketches, and diagrams: Call them what you will, just don’t call them useless, childish, or a waste of time in front of visual consultant (a.k.a. professional doodler) Sunni Brown.

In this short talk, Brown shares compelling ideas about the ability of doodling in helping us process big amounts of information and solve complex problems. So, if you often find yourself sketching in the margins during a meeting, stop feeling guilty, and instead learn how it could help your career and company.
