Duarte Resonate Presentation Workshop

WiRE members gathered for 2 half day sessions to learn about storytelling and effective communication through the Duarte Resonate Presentation Workshop. Regardless of individual specialties in the renewable energy landscape, we recognize the importance of effective communication and storytelling.


Delivered live in four 90-minute sessions over two consecutive days, this highly interactive online learning experience keeps participants engaged and helps learning stick.

About Resonate:

For 30 years we researched history’s most effective speakers and speeches and created presentations for some of the world’s biggest companies. We found that transformational presentations use story principles. From those insights, we developed a persuasive presentation course to teach you how to resonate with your audience. During this instructor-led training, you’ll learn to apply lessons from story and cinema to structure your presentation, grab your audience’s attention, and initiate action.

WiRE Talk Story Sessions: Representative Nicole Lowen

On August 5, 12:00-12:45pm we hosted our first virtual Talk Story Session with Representative Nicole Lowen, Chair of the House Committee on Energy & Environmental Protection in the Hawaii State Legislature. We learned about her childhood and international background and vision for the next 60 days, 6 months and 6 years.

We’re excited to announce WiRE Talk Story Sessions, a series of virtual conversations with leaders in Hawaii and across the country working on creating a future powered by renewable energy. Launched in August, and continuing through the end of 2020, each 45-minute Zoom session will spotlight one leader who will share a personal glimpse into their leadership and career journey as well as their vision for our collective clean energy future.

We know that many of you are juggling multiple priorities and may be feeling fatigue with video conferencing and webinars. That’s why we’re taking a refreshed approach with these sessions to offer a more personal, informal, and shorter dialogue to re-energize your work and re-connect with fellow WiRE members.
