Harness the power of visual storytelling
With this workshop, you’ll learn to transform complex ideas into impactful visual stories. You’ll use design thinking to organize your content, then you’ll convert ideas into a visual storyboard for your presentation.
Craft a compelling visual narrative in your presentation
Engage and inspire your audience.
For those who have tried to build compelling presentations, you know it’s not an easy feat. Maybe your mind goes blank when you sit down to generate ideas. Or maybe you struggle to organize fragmented thoughts into a cohesive message. Either way, you’re tired of seeing your presentations fall flat. So, if you want to get better at persuasive visual communication, where do you start?
The most persuasive presentations in the world today combine a compelling story with visual story design. VisualStory® gives you the opportunity to learn the fundamentals of both narrative and visuals in a consolidated format. This interactive workshop is built on the principles in Nancy Duarte’s best-selling books, Slide:ology® and Resonate®.
