Since 1988, we’ve been honored to bring life to some of the world’s greatest presentations for leaders and brands. Our clients include almost half of the top 50 brands, notable experts, respected causes, and global consulting firms.

Our Thought Leadership


When people come together to exchange ideas, they share an experience that aligns their minds and moves them forward with unified momentum. Yet most presentations fall short of this promise, and so we dedicated our lives to making them better.

We’ve worked on thousands of presentations and studied their structures to see what made the best ones stick. We codified our learnings into The Duarte Method™ methodology designed to shape ideas into presentations that shift audience beliefs and behavior.

Sometimes an idea is so big that communicating it in one moment isn’t enough. Sometimes, you need to create a movement. So we researched societal and business movements and discovered that they follow a common pattern that’s rooted in story—we call it the VentureScape™. Great leaders understand how others feel through all stages of the VentureScape and they mobilize people using speeches, stories, ceremonies, and symbols. Whether you’re leading a company initiative or a global movement, we can help you use persuasive communication to move people to create the change you hope to realize.
