Throughout the series of immersive learning modules led by Nancy Duarte, you will watch, listen and practice skills you need to connect more deeply with your audience. Based on Nancy’s third book, the HBR Guide to Persuasive Presentations, Duarte’s eCourse is split into three unique curricula: Storytelling, Visualizing and Presenting.


Storytelling focuses on audience, message and story. During this curriculum, you will learn a new approach to developing presentations, beginning by understanding the context of your communication and learning to work within a story framework. You will learn to create audience empathy and emotional appeal, arrange messages for greater impact, and strengthen their structure with story attributes and S.T.A.R. moments.


Visualizing focuses on slide design. Throughout this curriculum, you will discover the best practices for visually displaying messages, including editing down to one idea per slide, avoiding visual clichés, arranging slide elements for clear communication, and turning words into diagrams in order to create more memorable presentations and stronger calls-to-action.


Presenting focuses on presentation delivery and impact. You will practice techniques for preparing your presentations including best practices for remote presenting and managing social media as well as a post-presentation action plan.

Duarte's eCourse will teach you how to:

  • Win over tough crowds
  • Organize a coherent narrative
  • Create powerful messages and visuals
  • Connect with and engage your audience
  • Show people why your ideas matter to them
  • Strike the right tone, in any situation
