Visual Storytelling: Creating More Persuasive Presentations

via Skillshare


Join Prezi's Susannah Shattuck for a 60-minute dive into using the power of visual storytelling to create more compelling presentations.

Bite-sized lessons

  • define visual storytelling
  • show why it's essential for a compelling presentation
  • demonstrate core principles through 4 real-world examples
  • provide frameworks for transforming your own key messages into visual metaphors

This class focuses on the structure and strategy for giving your audience a visual analogy for understanding your ideas — which means you don't need any design or art experience to add this core skill to your professional toolkit. And, while you're welcome to use Prezi, the lessons in this class apply to any presentation software you'd like to use.

This class is perfect for entrepreneurs, professionals, marketers, content strategists, and everyone who needs to hook, persuade, and resonate with an audience.


Prezi is presentation software that uses motion, zoom, and spatial relationships to bring your ideas to life and make you a great presenter. For more on Prezi, check out their Skillshare class, Getting Started with Prezi.
