Sam leads with a curious spirit, an open and empathic heart, and an unparalleled ability to listen, learn and reflect back. Soon after, I hired him to work on two virtual, multi-day convenings for a national philanthropy based in the United States focusing on a range of challenging, important topics such as LGTBQ+ rights and systemic racism. As we planned our meetings, Sam contributed helpful insights and suggestions based on years of facilitation experience. During the sessions, his drawings helped participants learn and share in a completely different way than in previous Zoom meetings: more open, more vulnerable, more relational, and much more forward leaning. I’ll never plan another meeting without first considering the merits of graphic recording.   — Sarah Strunk, MHA, Strategic Advisor, Healthy Places by Design
