Back of the Napkin to Head of the Class – Introducing Dan Roam’s Napkin Academy

By Nancy Duarte

Learn to think faster, sell better, and see the invisible by thinking in pictures.

International bestselling author Dan Roam wrote “The Back of the Napkin” to help us all become visual thinkers, and within months his book became an international phenomenon, prompting leaders from Google to the White House to pick up their pens and start drawing their best ideas.

Now Dan has launched The Napkin Academy (, the world’s first online visual-thinking course. By watching Dan’s short and fun videos, in just 15 minutes a day you can become a master visual thinker — even if you haven’t drawn since kindergarten. So pick up a pen and paper, log on to, and see how easy it is to think faster and sell better with pictures!
