This Peter Frampton is the President of an education company that teaches business and financial literacy around the world using a new visual approach. He is a speaker, trainer, inventor and author. His 2010 book Accounting Comes Alive: The Color Accounting Parable is based upon the idea, which Peter will refer to today, that people are empowered in a function if they truly understand the language of that function.
