Business, community and political leaders were treated to keynoter and international best selling author Dan Roam of "The Back of the Napkin" at the 2010 Create WV conference held in Wheeling, WV at Oglebay Resort presented by BrickStreet Insurance. For me it was one of the most personally engaging keynotes I have attended in recent years. Dan did a tremendous job keeping it simple by telling great stories and interacting with the audience. It was so encouraging and motivating that I was ready to head back to work and begin solving our own problems that we encounter each day by incorporating his simple process of drawing pictures to solve them.
After his talk I had the pleasure of interviewing Dan one on one and got to know him a little better. Dan was my first celebrity interview and I have to say I was a little nervous. He quickly made me feel at ease and we began talking about the highlights of his keynote. We got to talk about his first impressions of West Virginia since this was his first visit to the mountain state. Also, he gave me a teaser about his new upcoming book that sounds very exciting. Be sure to listen and get the full scoop along with highlights of his keynote at the 2010 Create WV conference.
