Persuasion is the currency of business communication – and those who master communicating through presentations rise faster than their peers, reach more customers than their competitors, and turn ideas into groundswells.  Informed by research in literature, poetry, drama and screenwriting, Duarte’s Resonate workshop establishes a new method of content development that dramatically improves persuasive communication. Throughout the day, you will build your own meaningful content that compels your audience to take action. You’ll leave understanding:

  • The Business Case for Story
  • The Hero’s Journey – and applying it to your audience’s journey
  • The Big Idea – how to create it and address your audience’s Risk, Resistance and Reward
  • Content creation, using the story form
  • How to establish audience empathy
  • Out-of-the-box concepts and perspectives – and how these add to and enhance your message
  • Embedded contrast to create interest through tension and release
  • Construction of clear turning points
  • The Presentation Form – and how to analyze your presentation
