In her first consulting job, Patti's boss sent her into a room full of angry, sad and frustrated employees to help the survivors of a major layoff “get back to work.” After a spit wad hit her forehead, she grabbed a pen, went to the front of the room and with no drawing skills whatsoever, drew a picture that captured their attention and respect.
20 years later, Patti has drawn pictures for CEOs in Fortune 100 companies to grade school classrooms in Harlem. Her Wizard at the Whiteboard techniques have helped teams learn to draw ideas at Nike, Starbucks, Microsoft, Samsung, The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. A self-taught artist, strategic illustrator and keynote (3xTEDx) speaker, her book Drawing Solutions: How Visual Goal-Setting Will Change Your Life is a primer for graphic recorders worldwide.
