Package Components Descriptions

Resonate Workshop

We researched history’s most effective speakers and found that transformational presentations rely on storytelling principles. From those insights, we developed a persuasive presentation training.

In this hands-on, content development workshop, you’ll learn to structure your presentation using lessons from story and cinema, grab your audience’s attention, and initiate action.

Captivate Workshop

The most successful speakers seem to have an innate charisma. They captivate and persuade their audiences when they speak. You’ve got the same power to charm and sway. You already have the technical expertise, now you need confidence in your delivery.

This public speaking workshop will teach you to be more comfortable, dynamic, and empathetic in front of any audience. You’ll learn to ease your nerves, modulate your voice, and capitalize on the moments you really want people to remember. With only 10-14 people in each class, you'll get the coaching you need to succeed.

Captivate Webinar

After your decks are turned in, it's time to focus on delivery!

Based on our Captivate workshop, this webinar will help you discover your core strengths and develop the traits of the world’s most captivating speakers: dynamism, comfort, and empathy.

You’ll find your power with your body, mind, and voice, and be ready to deliver your message with relaxed confidence.

Resonate Ecourse

This ecourse is laser-focused on helping you structure and create a persuasive talk. We turned our Resonate workshop into a documentary-style video. You can listen and learn as if you’re part of a class and at your own pace. This ecourse will be supplemented with exercises, pdfs, and the multimedia version of Nancy’s book, Resonate.

Please note: If you’re interested in learning how to use analytical and emotional appeals to influence people, the in-person workshop is definitely a better option for you!

Remote 1:1 Speaker Coaching

Whether you need help with your content or your delivery, our coaches are here to work with you.

You can use this time for anything you need to make your presentation top notch. Get general feedback on your content, advice on how to stay focused on your main idea, work on a narrative arc, or emphasize your most important concepts. You can also receive critique on the style and delivery of your presentation, and uncover ways to improve your performance.

We want to make the absolute best use of your time. All coaching sessions will happen after your workshop and/or online training so you'll come to your coaching session with a full understanding of our methodology and be ready to work on your presentation.

Onsite 1:1 Speaker Coaching

We'll have coaches available onsite at Cisco Live in San Diego, California, for 1:1 sessions from Saturday-Tuesday. We can address last minute rehearsal needs, any jitters you might have, and the unique challenges that come with day-of set-up.

Orai, Your Personal Coaching App

With Orai and Duarte's integrated video coaching lessons, you can practice your presentation on your own and get automated AI-driven feedback.
