VisualStory® 1 Day Workshop

Presentation software is one of the few tools that require professionals to think visually on a daily basis. Yet, effective visual expression is not easy, natural or actively taught in schools. Duarte’s VisualStory® 1Day workshop fills the void.  Through collaborative exercises, you will learn and practice the skills needed to more deeply connect with your audiences – and visually display your message for a memorable presentation and call-to-action. You’ll leave understanding:

  • Why presentations miss the mark
  • Presentation spectrum – and choosing the best tool to deliver the message
  • Audience and speaker analysis – and building common ground between both
  • Structure and story – and creating your story using the Duarte PresentationMap™
  • Design Thinking
    • Presentation clarity – define Signal and Noise
    • Visualize information – tools to turn words into pictures
    • Arrange elements for clear communication
    • Convey visual unity

This one-day VisualStory® workshop delivers insights into the basics of story content from Resonate and visual design principles from Slide:ology. Learn how to create content that connects to an audience and how to arrange information so it’s displayed meaningfully.
