A few words about Nadine:
In a world where 99% of presentations are far from being great, Nadine Hanafi has made a name for herself and her company, We Are Visual, by helping clients transform their presentations from plain and unfocused to vibrant and persuasive. Her company has helped hundreds of clients reach new levels of clarity, persuasion and (dare we say) style, including best-selling authors, TEDx speakers, startups and Fortune 100 companies.
Nadine has been featured as a top US entrepreneur under 35 by Empact and awarded at the UN in 2014. She was also recently named among the 100 Most Powerful Arabs Under 40. This prestigious ranking included the likes of human rights activist Amal Clooney and Emirati female fighter pilot Mariam al-Mansouri. She’s also been featured and quoted on Fast Company, Entrepreneur, Time, Inc and The Huffington Post.
As a polyglot and a global citizen, Nadine has been able to work with clients in five languages and in over a dozen countries.
In just two years, Nadine has become one of the most in-demand experts on presentation design. With the release of her new book, Slide Therapy, she is now taking her design and storytelling expertise out of the exclusive realm of client projects so she can help even more people nail their presentations.
