Dan Roam Believes You Can Draw—for Good

Graphic Note of Dan Roam Talk

“I have a simple proposition. We can solve our problems with pictures. We can clarify our ideas with pictures.” – Dan Roam


Here’s a way for over 600 people in one room to start your day! Contemplate how a Boeing 757 airplane is built in 17 different countries and assembled into one final plane—that flies!

Dan Roam, author of The Back of the Napkin and Blah Blah Blah: What to Do When Words Don’t Work kicked off the first plenary at NTC today talking about the power of images to communicate. Now more than ever there is an imperative to communicate complexity. Using visual means to solve problems and bring clarity to ideas is accessible to all of us. Dan broke it down into manageable steps no matter what size your organization is or what your challenge.

The live stream is over but you can read a transcript of the talk here.
