Resonate: Presenting Visual Stories that Transform Remote Audiences
Sept. 8, 2011
12:00 – 1:00pm PST
Presenter: Nancy Duarte, CEO, Duarte Design, Inc.
Presentations are a central communication tool and those who master them transform an audience more effectively. But technology is moving so quickly and many audiences aren’t in the room — they’re remote. Even a remote audience will only change if you resonate with them. Many client and internal meetings should incorporate story to transform – persuasion at its finest. If you communicate your ideas clearly with a carefully crafted message and proper visuals, your audience will feel compelled to act because they’ll feel connected to your material on a human level.
Persuasion expert Nancy Duarte’s groundbreaking work details a new way of structuring content and connecting with an audience. In this session, you will learn to:
- Leverage the hidden story structures inherent in great communication
- Connect with your audience empathetically
- Create captivating content
- Craft ideas that get repeated
- Inspire enthusiasm and support for your material
