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

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 (www.napkinacademy.com), 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 www.napkinacademy.com, and see how easy it is to think faster and sell better with pictures!

And, as a special launch promotion, if you register using the secret coupon code BLACKPEN, Dan will automatically knock 25% off the already low $39.99 annual registration fee. That gives you a full year of world-class visual thinking training for only $29.99. (But register fast; this coupon will expire April 30, 2012.)


Dan Roam
Author of “Blah Blah Blah: What to Do When Words Don’t Work” and “The Back of the Napkin: Solving Problems and Selling Ideas with Pictures” Fast Company’s #1 business book and BusinessWeek’s #1 innovation book.

    OK, so then I followed someone else’s advice (Donna’s, below) and copied and pasted the link into a browser. I got your site, went all the way through the process of registering, credit card, the whole nine yards. Clicked the “yes, I want to buy” version of the button and got …. “Internal Server Error.” 🙁 

    • Hi you guys,

    Dan Roam here — I’m sorry to hear about your registration troubles. I’m not sure what’s up, since sales are flowing in without a hitch from this side.

    If you’re willing to try again, you should have no problem registering:

    http://www.napkinacademy.com/register

    The BLACKPEN coupon code did expire last week, so if the problem is that you’re not getting the discount, that’s the reason.

    For your troubles, I’ve just set up a new coupon code (just for us kids, okay?)… type in 
    SORRYABOUTHAT and receive $10.00 off either the annual CADET fee (normally $39.99) or your first month ASSOCIATE fee (normally $19.99 / month).

    Sorry for the difficulties!

    – Dan

    Very funny. Technical people, take note. Sometimes a simple sketch is all that’s needed to get a complex idea across.
