You put the time and thought into your plans and into your vision. You’re onto something, but if you want your ideas to catch fire, you’ve got to present them persuasively.

For 30 years we researched history’s most effective speakers and speeches and created presentations for some of the world’s biggest companies. We found that transformational presentations use story principles. From those insights, we developed a persuasive presentation course to teach you how to resonate with your audience and make a difference.

Now available as a Virtual Workshop too.

Questions & Answers

Have questions about what to expect at the Resonate workshop?

Can you deliver this persuasive presentation workshop onsite at our company?

Yes! We’ll come to your office and provide an immersive day of business storytelling training. Your team will have improved their persuasive presentation skills and emerge as more clear and confident communicators.

Why don’t I need to bring a laptop?

Persuasive presentations start with stories, not with PowerPoint®. We’ll be working analog all day.

Will I get to work on my own presentation?

Yes! In fact, you must. Please bring a new business presentation you want to create, or one you’d like to rework.

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 learn to tell better stories.

Should I do any prep work?

Prep work is not required. Though, you may want to watch Nancy Duarte’s TEDx East talk to get a little appetizer of what you’ll learn.

Will I be expected to present?

No. You’ll map out your story, occasionally sharing ideas with another attendee.

How can I get the most out of the workshop?

Come ready to be an active learner, ask questions, challenge assumptions, take risks, and be changed.

What are your cancellation and substitution policies?

Here’s everything you need to know about our public workshop cancellation policy.

How can I contact you with questions on public workshops?

It’s so simple, but the concept of ‘what is’ versus ‘what could be’ has completely refocused the way I think when approaching any task that involves gaining support from others.”
