The Duarte Method™

Everything we do is rooted in the Duarte Method™, which places empathy at the core of communication. We’ve used it for decades with the world’s greatest brands, and now it’s available to you.

Why the Duarte Method™?

In today’s world, empathy is more important than ever. It’s how we connect and motivate others to act. And it sits at the intersection of strategy, story, visuals, and delivery. Right where we work best.


Empathy moves people from ideas to action. Instead of starting with what you’re going to say, The Duarte Method™ begins with how you want your audience to think and feel.

We’ll show you how to build a communication strategy that harnesses empathy and story to drive change.


Craft your presentation content with the same techniques used by the world’s greatest storytellers. The most persuasive communication uses story structure and contrast to captivate your audience and compel them to act. When done well, story moves people to move from what is into what could be. Sound familiar? It’s the structure from Nancy Duarte’s famous TEDx Talk—with 3+ million views and counting.


When people can see what you’re saying, they’re more likely to understand it and support it. Strengthen your message—rather than distract from it—with memorable visuals that simplify complex ideas and reinforce your key points.

We’ll help you learn how to design clear and purposeful visuals that make your messages stick.


Influence comes from being intentional about what you say as well as how you say it. Communicate your message with impact by being polished and persuasive in your delivery. This pillar of The Duarte Method™ amplifies your message through words, voice, gestures, and movement to reinforce your key messages and connect with your audience.
