Dan's Talks

What to do when words don’t work.

Dan Roam's Talks: Blah-Blah-Blah

The problem? We talk so much that we don’t think very well. The solution: Vivid Thinking.
In this fast-paced session, Dan introduces his newest set of tools in the battle against complexity, misunderstanding, and boredom: Vivid Thinking. Vivid stands for “Visual-Verbal InterDependent Thinking” – which means that our best ideas emerge only when we engage both our verbal and visual minds. Using his breakthrough tools “The Blah-Blameter,” “Vivid Grammar,” and “The Vivid Forest,” Dan shows us how to find the underlying message in any idea and cut out the blah-blah-blah forever.

Audience: Executives, Leaders, Strategic Thinkers, Sales Teams, Teachers; anyone with big ideas that need to be seen, heard, and understood – right now!

Duration: 60-90 minutes.

The Back of the Napkin:
Solving problems with pictures.

Dan Roam's Talks: The Back of the Napkin

The problem? Too many complex problems. The solution: a sketch on the back of a napkin. In this interactive session, Dan shares his classic “Back of the Napkin” toolkit, the same tools he has used with teams at Microsoft, Boeing, Intel, Wal-Mart, and the United States Senate. Come with a business problem in mind and bring a napkin and pen — nobody leaves until we’ve explored the basic elements of the problem and mapped out the path to an effective solution.

Audience: Directors, Managers, Project Leads, Action Teams; anyone who has a big problem that needs to be solved today.

Duration: 60-90 minutes.

Dan’s talks are represented exclusively by the Bright Sight Group.
