Dick Patton and Kati Najpoor-Schütte – Global CEO Practice Leaders (Egon Zehnder):
It was an absolute pleasure working with Filippo, not only was his work beautiful and a fantastic reminder of our creative journey during the 2 days, but moreover he amazed us with his ability to really understand and capture the content of our meeting. All the participants in the meeting were highly impressed with his work, and we would definitely recommend him. We would love to work with him again in the future. Thank you again Pippo!
Tandiwe Erlmann – Senior Project Manager (seecon):
We first started working with Pippo two years ago when he had just founded his company. His creativity, understanding of the subject matter and ideas immediately convinced us.
He did a full week of graphic recording for an SDC-funded workshop on circular economy in the water and sanitation sector (our biggest annual workshop). His capacity to capture the essence of discussions and workshop atmosphere not only had a positive impact on the outcome of the workshop but also allowed us to instantly share the results with participants and disseminate them online.
Ever since his first gig with us, we have worked with him two more times and will definitely continue to do so in the future.
Alwin Kopse – Head International Affairs, Sustainable Development, Food Systems (Federal Office for Agriculture):
We worked with Sketchy Solutions during the Global Forum for Food and Agriculture in 2018 in Berlin. The collaboration with Filippo while preparing the panel discussion was very straight forward and to the point. His work during the event was fabulous and the resulting sketch said it all. His work will accompany us around the world. It serves both as a reminder of the discussions we had in Berlin and as a catalyzer for coming work. Thank you Filippo!
Amanda Crameri – Head of Division Higher Education (Movetia):
Working with Filippo has been a very interesting creative process. He could translate the many technical details that characterise our students’ mobility programme into images that were both fun and precise. The excellent result was ideal for the promotion of the Swiss-European Mobility Programme. The poster resulted so convincing that it even found a place in the office of Federal Councillor Johann N. Schneider-Ammann.
Niels Rot – Strategic Development (ETH Zürich):
At ETH we were working on a highly complex topic (mapping topics at the fringe of computer sciences) and engaged Pippo’s support to help us graphically record the four workshops. He did an excellent job capturing the core topics and support us with sensemaking, even though he is not a topic expert himself (something I was worried about before). We as well as the participants of the workshops were deeply impressed by the drawings and we still use them today to help us design next steps. We can highly recommend working with Pippo.
Ina Toegel – Professor of Leadership (IMD):
Working with Filippo was a dynamic and highly rewarding experience. He was flexible and responsive, visualizing on the spot the ideas of participants during group brainstorming sessions. It added great value and a fun spirit to the participants’ leadership journey at IMD. Thank you Filippo!
Ernst Bolliger – Workshop facilitator (EB Consult):
I had the chance to facilitate a workshop “Managing Conflict Risks? Opportunities for Extractive Industries?” at the Basel Peace Forum 2018. Based on two key inputs held by Philippe LeBillon and Hélène de Villiers, a group of about 25 participants shared experience, knowledge, and opinions about the role, chances, risks, and responsibilities of stakeholders of the extractive industries in conflict-prone areas. Swiss Peace expressed its wish to have the essentials of the inputs and discussion documented and visualized in an attractive form. The cooperation with Filippo Buzzini turned out to be a most appropriate answer to this challenge: He managed to visualize the key elements on two charts. The “green chart” contains the key inputs of the resource persons; the “yellow chart” presents as metaphoric picture of a bee-hive the contributions of the participants: “Honey to be consumed for managing future risks”.
Big thanks to Filippo for this memorable visualization of the results!
Audrey Frith – Director (Eurodesk Brussels Link):
Working with Filippo @Sketchysolutions was a great experience, we worked together ahead of the meeting to discuss about the topics on the table and plan the reporting style and approach. Filippo adapted to our needs and made a great job during the event. I recommend him to bring a dynamic and creative touch to your events!
Kristoffer Rasmussen – Co-Founder (Happy [Bern] Lab):
It was a pleasure to work with Filippo. He distilled many complex stories into a very tangible overview. That process was super helpful for us internally and also externally. His drawing is the first thing our guests see when they arrive and we use it weekly as a support for explaining our project and process. Please don’t underestimate the power of a visual overview.
