 Speaking Topic:

Once Upon a Time: Enchanting Secrets of Creative & Compelling Storytelling

 We all know that successful brands share stories, but the most successful share lean-forward stories, stories that compel the listener to think. To act. To do. In this workshop, we'll explore multiple storytelling techniques to help you craft a compelling answer to the hard question: ‘Who are you and what do you do?’. We'll explore (in This-American-Life fashion) how to brush off those stale mission and vision statements and learn how to rewind the myths, retell the history, and fore(sell)tell the future by creating customer-centric stories that cut through the noise and allow the customer to speak for themselves. Banish features/benefits selling forever and learn the simple tactics of spellbound, audience-centric storytelling.
