If you say, "I have an idea for something," what you really mean is, "I want to change the world in some way." Look around you. Your clothes, language, furniture, house, city, and nation all began as ideas—visions of change—in someone's mind.

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

This class will demonstrate how to apply the methods from the book Resonate: Presenting Visual Stories That Transform Audiences to build meaningful connections with audiences that compel them to action. Learn a new way of structuring a presentation and connecting with an audience.

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

Please join us as we welcome Nancy Duarte, who has influenced the perception of some of the world's most influential brands and leaders—including Apple, TED, Facebook, Google, and Al Gore.

In order to bring you this member-favorite speaker and B2B Forum 2011 keynote presenter, we're hosting this very special PRO seminar on a Friday.

This PRO seminar is also the last class of MarketingProfs University's Content Marketing Crash Course.
