Individuals and Teams

VisualStory® Workshops

Harness the Power of Persuasion. Use Visual Storytelling Techniques to  Amplify Your Story.

Persuasion is the currency of business communication. Those who master communicating through presentations rise faster than their peers, reach more customers than their competitors, and turn ideas into groundswells.

Why visual stories? Research shows that visuals are processed 60,000 times faster than words alone, and while people only remember 20% of what they read, they remember 80% of what they see.

Learn the skills you need to connect with your audience and visually display your message for a memorable presentation and effective call-to-action. Choose the workshop that’s right for you and your team.

What’s the difference between 1Day and 2Day VisualStory®
Do I need a laptop?

Nope! We’ll build up your skills by coming up with analog stories and improve visual thinking by manually sketching.

Do I need to be a designer?

Definitely not. If you are a designer, we recommend you check out our Resonate workshop and take a deep-dive into your storytelling skills.

Will there be breaks?

Sure will. You’ll have chances to check your email and stay in the loop. But, overall, we want you focused and engaged throughout the day so you can tell better stories.

Although I left exhausted I also left completely transformed and inspired…I’m inspired that there is a company like Duarte who encourages a culture of passion, creativity, and fun as a way to drive truly extraordinary ideas.
