A powerful simple and fun way to solve business problems

Visual thinking is using our innate ability to see, both, with our eyes and our mind’s eye, to discover previously invisible ideas, develop those ideas in a rapid and intuitive way, and then share those ideas with other people in a way they simply “get.”

Any problem can be made clearer with a picture, and any picture can be created using a set of tools and the rules for its use.

The six story lines of design thinking

The core of The Back of The Napkin™ workshop is learning to use The Visual Problem-Solving Toolkit™ – a powerful new way of looking at problems and their solutions.

Based on solid research by the globally recognised author and management consultant, Dan Roam.


The Back of the Napkin helps you literally see the world in a new way.

Join the CEOs, teachers, project managers, doctors, engineers, assembly-line workers, pilots, coaches, financial analyst, students, parents and lawyers who have discovered the power of solving problems with visual thinking.

Ai-Yat and Chris invite you to this two-day workshop designed to tap into your innate visual problem-solving ability.
