  • Draw Me the Money: Sell, Lead and Innovate With Pictures

    Dan Roam, Author, "The Back of the Napkin: Solving Problems and Selling Ideas with Pictures"

    For more than 25 years, bestselling author Dan Roam ("The Back of the Napkin," "Blah Blah Blah," and "Show and Tell") has lead the visual-business revolution, traveling to five continents to share with business leaders the incredible problem-solving power of pictures. From Microsoft and Google to Wells Fargo and JP Morgan, from the US Navy to the US Senate and to the White House, Dan's breakthrough understanding of how to use vision to succeed in business has captivated leading thinkers in technology, finance, science, politics, and education.

    In this fast-paced interactive presentation, Dan will share the Top-10 Visual Rules he has learned and show you exactly how to seize the power of pictures in your work:

      1. When in doubt, draw it out.
      2. Whoever draws the best picture wins.
      3. Lead with the eye and the mind will follow.
      4. First, draw a circle.
      5. To lead, draw your destination.

    These simple but insightful revelations will have you rethinking how you approach financial and technology challenges, communications, and problem-solving.

    During this session, you will:
      • See how vision drives all other modes of thought.
      • Learn how to hot-wire the visual process for faster problem-solving.
      • Understand how to use the neuromechanics of vision to explain any concept, no matter how complex.
      • Recognize the incredible power of your own visual mind -- even if you can't draw.
