Recently Kevin Price, Host of the nationally syndicated Price of Business Show, interviewed Amy E. Herman.

On a recent Price of Business show, Host Kevin Price interviewed NY Times bestselling author, Amy E. Herman.
According to a statement, “The FBI, NATO, State Department, Interpol, NYPD, Scotland Yard, Fortune 500 companies, Navy Seals and more have all hired New York Times Best-Selling attorney, former Frick Collection Head of Education and art historian Amy E. Herman to help them solve their toughest problems. Herman uses works of art to teach people how to hone their perception and visual intelligence, presenting a paradigm-shifting twist on problem-solving.

“Astute observation is critical to professional success. The ability to observe is grounded in the perception of visual information and the effective articulation of what the eye sees and what the brain interprets. Learning to reconsider how we perceive the world around us optimizes the critical nexus between the eye and the mind.

“Amy Herman is a lawyer and art historian who uses works of art to sharpen observation, analysis, and communication skills. By showing people how to look closely at painting, sculpture, and photography, she helps them hone their visual intelligence to recognize the most pertinent and useful information as well as recognize biases that impede decision-making. She developed her Art of Perception seminar in 2000 to improve medical students’ observation and communication skills with their patients when she was the Head of Education at The Frick Collection in New York City. She subsequently adapted the program for a wide range of professionals and leads sessions internationally for the New York City Police Department, the FBI, the French National Police, the Department of Defense, Interpol, the State Department, Fortune 500 companies, first responders, the military, and the intelligence community. In her highly participatory presentation, she demonstrates the relevance of visual literacy across the professional spectrum and how the analysis of works of art affords participants in her program an innovative way to refresh their sense of critical inquiry and reconsider the skills necessary for improved performance and effective leadership. The program has been featured in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, CBS Evening News, and Smithsonian Magazine, among others. Her TED talk, A Lesson in Looking, went live in December 2018. Ms. Herman holds an A.B., a J.D., and an M.A. in art history. Her book, Visual Intelligence, was published in May 2016 and was on both The New York Times and Washington Post Best Seller Lists.”
