"Took a complex subject and turned it into an easy-to-follow piece that our consultants are using in the sales process"It was a pleasure working with Carolyn on the visual representations of our programs and industry. Through a couple in person sessions and some follow up calls, she was able to take a complex and nuanced subject and turn it into an easy-to-follow 8.5" x 11" piece that our consultants are now using to aid them in the sales process. If it's true that a "picture says 1000 words", Carolyn not only makes a pretty picture, she helps you determine which 1000 words to say. No small feat, that. Highly recommend!

“She's brilliant.. it's the best way to get your message across to your people!”Carolyn Ellis is absolute amazing. At the two-day Art of Learning, she captured every one of Joey Coleman’s thoughts. Put it onto paper and everyone of our clients was so excited! I’ve never seen more people gather around to take pictures of Carolyn. They video taped her, they noticed all of the drawings, everything was just absolutely bang on! The name of her company is absolutely perfect, because she’s brilliant. Reach out to Carolyn and document your next meeting, your next conference. It’s the best way to get your message across to all of your people.

"Carolyn is a great person to work with, blessed with a unique talent"As a learning & development professional, I always look for innovative ideas to share content and information. Inspired by Carolyn's doodles and attending her workshop gave an opportunity to combine my interest in sketching and love for colors in my daily work. I have already started doodling be it summarizing traditional slides on a page, doing roadshows for strategic gatherings or taking daily meeting notes. Carolyn is a great person to work with and blessed with a unique talent which she is ready to share with anyone looking for innovation and creativity - so get ahead for a doodling fun time leaving long lasting impact on the audience.

"Ability to capture key content and discussion in a vibrant and engaging manner kept the material alive"I had the privilege of watching Carolyn perform as she graphically recorded one of my training sessions with a mutual client. Her ability to capture key content ideas and discussion in such a vibrant and engaging manner kept the material alive after its presentation and allowed participants to browse and reflect on their own time, connecting the images on the wall to the “what’s next” in their own work.

"Carolyn is the best I have ever seen in capturing the true spirit of your message in a unique, fun and memorable way!"One of the biggest challenges I have as a speaker is creating a lasting impact with clients long after my presentation is over. Simply put Carolyn is the best I have ever seen in capturing the true spirit of your message in a unique, fun and memorable way. If you want to make a lasting impact with your clients and stand out from the crowd, look no further.
