Stories that Work

Capture Attention & Make Your Point

"That's just dumb," said the Marketing VP.

I was at a conference table with several managers; two were in a heated fight. 

They were arguing about the wording on a PowerPoint slide.   Bullet #3, slide #27.

"Can I offer an opinion?" I asked.  They had invited me to this meeting, after all, to consult.

"The wording of bullet #3," I said, "doesn't matter.  You've got 62 slides in this deck.  No one will remember any of these bullets."

That stopped the fight.  They no longer hated each other.  Now they hated me . . .


Well, that's the problem with PP slides:  they're easily forgotten.  Not so with stories.

Stories capture attention.  Your audience sees things, feels things, and most importantly, remembers things.

The purpose of this workshop is to sharpen your skill at both designing and delivering effective stories for a business audience.
