How to talk about the future and lead your audience into the unknown ? If this challenge seems extremely relevant today, it is absolutely not new. This is what leadership is about, and Nancy Duarte’s book will help you especially in two respects : - it covers the full cycle of any human or community venture : From Dream ; to Leap ; to Fight ; to Climb ; to Arrive ; … and to (re)Dream etc. ; - and it gives numerous ideas and examples of speeches, stories, ceremonies, and symbols, whether the speaker needs to motivate the committed or warn the resistant. In particular, it explores an aspect that is often omitted : the potential of symbols - visual, auditory, spatial, and physical.
