Event Description

If you say "I have an idea for something," what you really mean is "I want to change the world in some way." You might not be able to change the entire world, but what is "the world" anyway? It is simply all of the ideas of all our ancestors. Look around you. Your clothes, language, furniture, house, city, and nation all began as visions in other minds. Humans love to create. And creating starts with an idea that can change the world.

"The only reason to give a speech is to change the world." --John F. Kennedy

Presentations are the lingua franca of business and those who master communicating with them rise faster than their peers, reach more customers than their competitors, and turn causes into a groundswell.

Pioneering presentation innovator Nancy Duarte, CEO of Duarte Design, will demonstrate how to apply the methods in her book resonate: Presenting Visual Stories That Transform Audiences, to build meaningful connections with audiences that compel them to action. Her groundbreaking work details a new way of structuring a presentation and connecting with an audience - helping the presenter create a human connection.

Changing the world starts with transforming an audience and an audience will only change if you resonate with them.

In this session, you will learn:

Leverage the hidden story structures inherent in great communication
Connect with your audience empathetically
Create captivating content
Craft ideas that get repeated
Inspire enthusiasm and support for your vision
This session is for leaders who are tasked with communicating clearly and persuading through verbal communications.
