Some presentations touch hearts and change minds, but if you’ve ever sat through a snooze-worthy presentation, you probably realize that there’s art to this type of communication. In Resonate you’ll learn how to leverage techniques normally reserved for cinema and literature to transform any presentation into an engaging journey. You will discover how to understand your audience, create persuasive content, and elicit a groundswell response.

You’ll learn:
• How to use story principles to grip audiences’ attention
• How to place your audience at the center of a story, so it’s meaningful to them
• Why you should see yourself as a mentor instead of a hero
• How to create a call-to-action that works
• How famous communicators structured their most moving speeches
