We Made This
We partnered with Galliard Health recently, spending two days with Roche and Foundation Medicine at a media event focused on cancer and genomics. The event, “Transforming Cancer Care: Advances in Personalized Healthcare and Genomics,” was an opportunity to learn more about the Roche and Foundation Medicine partnership. The program included presentations, panel discussions, and Q&A on topics like precision medicine, personalized healthcare, and genomics. Our role during the two days was to provide graphic recording for each of the presentations and facilitated discussions. Here are a few images of our graphic recording from this event.

TEDx
This year's TEDxBoston speakers gave us a wonderful vantage point into how the reality of machine learning and artificial intelligence is changing the world around us in ways that we see and ways that we don’t see. As in previous years, Collective Next provided speaker and event sponsorship in the form of speaker coaching and script writing, in-depth design/production of talk visuals, overall content curation, and graphic facilitation at the event.
