Visual Storytelling Workshop:
The Art and Science of Persuasive Presentations
1:1 | Groups | Virtual
Impact. Influence. Inspire.
Reinforce your words with thoughtful and effective visual designs.
In a world overpopulated with data-rich, sleep-inducing, time-draining presentations, MOXiE empowers you with the skills to make your message stand out and ignite action.
Transform Your Presentations
When an executive takes the stage and delivers a presentation that touches emotions and inspires change, it’s not a fluke; it’s a carefully crafted story supported by thoughtful imagery and neuroscience. With over 80% of our daily impressions perceived through our eyes, it’s no surprise that effective visual communication is imperative for business success, especially when giving a make-or-break presentation.
Among the many technical skills for creating brilliant slide decks, you will become proficient at:
Communicating visually, connecting emotionally
Strategically storyboard your ideas for audience impact
Simplifying complex ideas through clear messaging
Visually guide audiences from problem to solution to action
Making data interesting and easily digestible
Win your audience and ignite action
Beyond visual storytelling techniques, this workshop helps you:
- Understand and employ visual balance
- Reduce confusion and amplify retention
- Recognize efficacious slides and measure influence
- Harness professional design elements
- Applying seamless transitions and dynamic imagery
- Swap heavy text blocks for effective images
- Save time, reduce stress, deliver results
Powerful visual communication is one of the key differentiators between presentations that hit the mark and those that fall short. And even though over 33 million presentations are delivered each business day, most executives lack a strategy, process, and formal training in slide deck and storytelling design.
Relax, we get it – you’re not a designer. But that doesn’t mean you can’t think like one.
We’ll coach you through proven visual strategies that underscore your data and reinforce your narrative. You’ll understand how effective imagery, graphs, and slide layouts can transform your presentation and motivate audiences to take action.
The Capstone of Business Communication
We realize the importance of your message and information. That’s why this workshop teaches you more than just smart slide deck design. We take it up a level by helping you connect compelling visuals with convincing messaging.
By the end of the workshop, you’ll be utilizing the same best practices employed by Hollywood screenwriters and actors to communicate your ideas with ultimate effectiveness.
We’ll even show you how to develop a clear throughline that journeys your audience through each slide in your deck, exposing problems and guiding them persuasively toward your solution.
This is business storytelling at its most significant.
