1 March 2015: Workshop on storytelling in Moscow... by Antonio Meza, immediate past President of Paris Speech Masters. This was part of the International Toastmasters Conference.

The art of transforming ideas into images that resonate with your audience. How do you become memorable? How can you and your message stay in the mind of your audience for longer in times when the span of attention seems to be getting shorter? What about giving them more than words? When you create a speech, you design your writing to evoke thoughts, feelings and images into your audiences mind. But what happens when they answer with more thoughts back to you? How do you acknowledge them? Visual resonance helps you to transform your speech into a dialogue. In this interactive session with Antonio Meza you will understand the core principles of visual resonance, the art of capturing your audiences thoughts, feelings and images in a playful way that will help them to remember the content of your session (and you) for longer. * improve your listening skills to connect with your audience * unleash your creative genius to transform words into images * start developing your own "visual alphabet" * express the gist of a conversation combining fun simple drawings and storytelling principles.


Well done, Antonio!
