Unlock your potential and blast off!

With Inspirational Keynote Speaker & Live Illustrator Patti Dobrowolski

Inspire your team to greatness

Live Illustration
The Art of Visual Thinking

The most powerful moments in an event or engagement is when the participants feel the desire to do something — to change their thinking or see a new and powerful future. What if I told you that inviting a live illustrator to speak at your session will change how you think about events forever?

The world is in a constant state of flux and you and your team need to have the flexibility to pivot to meet those changes. You also want a clear and compelling strategic plan. Not a plan of the past, thick documents that never leave the shelf, but a simple one page roadmap. That roadmap should contain the distillation of your ideas into one big picture.

When we work together, you’ll find new ways to tap your Creative Genius. You’ll be invited to step outside your comfort zone and innovate to uncover best practices, empower people and build a strong foundation for the future you and your team desire.

I’ve worked in every sector of every industry around the world, across competition, to help everyone be better in how they work and what they achieve.

Join me in my mission to make the world more clear, one picture at a time.

Who You Are…

You’re facing a change or a challenge – perhaps you want to envision a new future or you’re a new leader and want to create team or organizational alignment. You want more than inspiration, you want someone with experience and tools to help your team unlock their Creative Genius, to leave feeling confident and enthusiastic about what is ahead.

You crave a powerful experience that brings lasting results. I bring all of this and more. Contact me to tell me about your event or book me today.

Top Keynote Topics I Speak About

I’ll work closely with you to understand your unique goals and to meet your desired outcomes. Many clients choose keynotes reflecting my TEDx talks and we add key content, images and specificity to meet your needs. Here are additional topics for you to consider.

For every talk, I share powerful stories from my 30 years of experience working with leaders and front-line employees to drive to better outcomes. I’ll always draw my talk into a picture, and engage the audience to add to the content, so the image reflects their experience. That illustration lives on, not just in your memory, but often hangs in your hallways as a reminder of what you’re working towards — fantastic results!

Visual Listening + Your Meeting = Live Illustration

A live illustrator elevates any meeting or presentation by capturing the conversation using a unique skill of visual listening. With words and pictures, they create a graphic recording of the meeting content. This often beautiful illustration is a valuable asset that you can bring into your meetings so you know where you are, can track your progress and continue to use it to inspire your team.
