Back of the Napkin

Stop thinking about drawing as an artistic process. Drawing is a thinking process. If we want to think more clearly about an idea, draw it!

Visual thinking is using our innate ability to see both with our eyes and our minds’ eyes, to discover previously invisible ideas, develop those ideas in a rapid and intuitive way, and then share those ideas with other people in a way they simply “get.”

Any problem can be made clearer with a picture, and any picture can be created using a set of tools and the rules for its use. The core of “The Back of The Napkin” Workshop is learning to use the Visual Problem-solving Toolkit – a powerful new way of looking at problems and their solutions.

Show & Tell

“Show & Tell: How Everybody Can Make Extraordinary Presentations” will guide us through three basic rules: tell the truth, share a great story, and show it with pictures.

By telling the truth, we connect with our audience and they resonate with us. Telling the truth through a story and not just with figures or concepts, we make it easier for people to remember what we shared.

Through a story, we have the chance to move them, to affect them, and to persuade them.

With pictures, graphics, and even drawings to go with your presentation, you can keep your audience’s interest and make them want to know and see more.
