Creative Innovation 2019 (Ci2019)

Kathryn Baulch

Illustrator and Graphic Recorder

I am an Illustrator and Graphic Recorder based in Melbourne.

As a Graphic Recorder I capture meetings, presentations, and events with live drawing. This process involves listening carefully, processing the information and translating the key messages into a combination of words and images to create a visual record. Because people think visually, the pictures I create are a highly effective method in engaging audiences, bringing an event to life, encouraging continued discussion and creating the opportunity to share content with a wider audience.

In addition to Graphic Recording, I work with some clients to synthesise complex messaging into engaging visual narratives known as Rich Pictures. These illustrations create an accessible way for their teams or customers to understand a new product, process, journey or way of working.

Some of the clients I am proud to have worked with include: ACC New Zealand, AGL, ANZ, Ausnet, Alfred Health, BHP Biliton, Brotherhood of St. Laurence, BuzzFeed, Cap Gemin, Department of Premier and Cabinet, Department of Veterans Affairs, KPMG, Melbourne University, PwC and Western Power.

I illustrate and graphic record using a range of methods including on whiteboard, paper and digitally using an iPad and iPencil.

"Without a doubt the best conference in Australia with a delightful mix of creativity and big thinking bringing together an eclectic group of industry, community and education leaders. Once again, I’ve come away enthused by new ideas, more aware of future trends, and heartened by the kindness of humanity. We all have a role to play and it should be a collective one." Kerry Anderson, Founder of Operation Next Gen

"Conferences are boring. Creative Innovation is more like a rodeo for ideas, and you are guaranteed to leave wanting to make the world better for everyone." Andrew Despi, A.kin

"Kudos to Tania for organising the the 2019 CI Conference in Melbourne - it is the best I have attended so far. All the speakers and sessions were very well-planned. I have attended many conferences and this is the first I did not have the 'luxury' to skip any sessions. Your effort in this space has truly made Melbourne a global innovation and entrepreneurship hub." Danny Ong, Deakin University

"I wanted to pass along how incredible I thought Creative Innovation was and how much your passion for life and for humanity was inspiring to all of us. It was a privilege to be included and one that I am very grateful for." John Pickering, Chief Behavioural Scientist

"Creative Innovation is a transformational platform built by changemakers for changemakers. It is an educational adventure showcasing the forefront of ideas internationally." Melissa Warner, Ci2019 Scholarship Winner & Education Officer, Mind Medicine Australia

"Creative Innovation 2019 was one of the most well-organised events I’ve ever taken part in. From beginning to the end, every detail had been planned through and taken care of. Secondly, are the production values. As a result, it was possible to attend all the sessions without suffering conference burn-out, happy in the knowledge that the next piece of content was guaranteed to delight and challenge the senses." Richard Claydon (Singapore)

"Well done on another successful Ci conference. Your energy, passion and sheer determination to ensure the conference delegates get a fantastic experience is admirable." VP People & Global Capability | P&GC, Woodside Energy
