Make Events More Creative and Memorable

My work (called visual notes, live illustration, graphic recording, graphic facilitation etc) communicates your talks visually and is a valuable tool for retention, engagement, and productivity. I'm at the front of the room (or working virtually) drawing out the content of the talk in real-time. My approach combines improvisation with visual learning, and attendees will walk away with a richer understanding of the content discussed. Your ideas become productive art :)


Why Choose Silent James?

I've been live illustrating / graphic recording since 2011, supporting over 250 events and drawing in front of crowds of thousands people. This expertise makes me an asset before, during, and after your event. Fortune 500 companies hire me because of the value and professionalism I bring to their conferences and meetings. I also offer flat-rate pricing, support for virtual or in-person events, and I am your only point of contact!

I May Be Silent, But My Clients Are Not!

"The quality of James' output was always very high, and being able to capture six consecutive pitches always seamed an incredible feat. To me though, that was always just table stakes. James brought himself to the week and gave generously of his own spirit, which helped give the event its own unique feel. We always regarded James as part of the team, so I can't recommend him highly enough."

"James is truly ideal to work with; creativity, high IQ+EQ, in-depth listening skills - all in one delightful professional. I would work with James any day of the week."

– Omnicom Group

“James was an excellent partner to work with during our event. He captured all of our keynote messaging perfectly. During the planning process, he was excellent to work with and always asked the best questions to ensure that the end result would be the best possible. Would be so great to work with him again.”
