Delivering CORE


about the event

Delivering CORE is a live, 3-hour workshop where you will learn how to summarize and deliver the results and insights developed during a CORE Discovery session.

Join us!


Ease the creative process and eliminate the guesswork.

In this live workshop, you’ll discover a concrete method of closing out a CORE Discovery session in a way that leaves your clients feeling excited, committed, and ready to move forward with the rest of the project. You'll learn how to summarize the session, develop an in-depth discovery document, and present your insights effectively.


Take your role as a strategy-first creative further.

Facilitating a great discovery session is only half the battle. Delivering the insights to your clients in a meaningful, unforgettable way is how you can make sure that the spark from the facilitation becomes a roaring fire of change.

Your discovery document will be used as a roadmap, a guidebook, and a barometer by your clients for years to come. You’ll learn how to craft and present this to your clients in a way that will cement your insights with ultimate clarity.

Lead more efficient and impactful discovery sessions to learn what’s important to your clients and become a more valued partner.

Work with your clients to identify current obstacles and devise a clear, actionable solution through a strategy and data-driven approach.

Use the roadmap to get aligned on priorities from the beginning and set your clients up for success.

Watch your value as a creative professional skyrocket. The discovery session is the most valuable asset to your process to help you smoothly and efficiently hit the client’s vision on the mark.

Here’s what you need to attend this workshop:

  • You must own CORE Discovery
  • Access to Keynote, or a similar presentation tool
  • Notes from an actual discovery session to the workshop (not required, but highly recommended)
