Transcript

  • 1. The Art of Telling Great Stories...
  • 2. What are stories ?
  • 3. Stories are magic ! Stories take us everywhere: back in time, in the future or happen right in the present time. They transport us to many places and situations we might never get to.
  • 4. The teller is the magician ! He creates an atmosphere in which anything is possible, a special kind of energy that is really magical.
  • 5. Telling stories is like taking a group of people to the cinema ! You can think of storytelling as a piece of film being projected on to a screen.
  • 6. In terms of Marketing... Nothing sales better today than telling a story !
  • 7. Here is a seven-step process on how to tell a great story:
  • 8. Start with the end in mind ! Know exactly what you want the listener to believe, understand or do when you’ve completed the story.
  • 9. Have a punch line ! Every story must have a beginning, middle and an end. However, when you tell a story, the most important is the ending of the story. End with a real “Call to Action” !
  • 10. Use the 5 “W” questions to direct your story ! Who ? When ? What ? Where ? Why ?
  • 11. Make emotions part of your story ! Memorable stories are always attached to powerful emotions.
  • 12. Describe the journey and the obstacles to overcome ! Every story has a goal that must be achieved, along with the obstacles that might stand in the way.
  • 13. Describe the turning point ! In every story, there is a turning point–a decision–that allows the person or people involved to overcome the obstacle and achieve the goal.
  • 14. Provide the lesson from the story !
  • 15. What STORY would you tell to gain the TRUST of your Customers ?
