Let’s face it: Explaining the world of business education is hard. But pictures can make it easier. Best-selling author Dan Roam will demonstrate step-by-step how you—regardless of artistic talent or training—can use simple pictures to not only describe what you do but also explain complex concepts, solve fuzzy problems, and sell others on breakthrough ideas.

Among the key issues and takeaways Roam will cover:

  • Visual thinking is the best way to discover, develop, and communicate ideas—especially for the complex challenges you face today.
  • Everyone is a born visual problem-solver.
  • There are two simple visual tools you can use to immediately improve your visual problem solving capabilities.
