VisualStory® 2 Day

Establish a new method of content development and presentation design that dramatically improves persuasive communication.

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. But presentations are broken. The only proof you need is sitting through the next presentation delivered by your colleague, your boss or your vendor. The presentation paradigm must be changed in order for all the brilliant ideas to be heard. But how?

Duarte’s VisualStory® 2 Day workshop establishes a new method of content development and presentation design that dramatically improves persuasive communication. Topics include:

Day 1

  • The Power and Structure of Story
  • The Presentation Form – the shape of great communications
  • Audience Journey – and your role as the presenter
  • The StoryMap – writing content that resonates with your audience

Day 2

  • Visual clarity – define Signal and Noise
  • Visualize information – tools to turn words into pictures and data into stories
  • Storyboarding techniques – quick sketching to try out ideas
  • Arrange elements for clear communication
  • Visual unity – applying design thinking to presentations

Effective Presentation Skills Workshops - On-site

Duarte facilitators have logged many hours in many different locations, teaching teams who want to train together, or are just too big to travel. Duarte ships everything you need for the workshop to the venue you have selected—including individually packaged sets of materials and one expert facilitator. Working with a Duarte contact, you or a delegate will arrange the onsite logistics—including attendee correspondence, transportation, and refreshments—to ensure the day runs smoothly. We encourage keeping class attendance between 15-30 people to maximize collaboration with classmates and valuable facilitator feedback.
