  1. 1. Make Your Presentation Stick (3) The Art of Story Telling! Tell stories in a way that are persuasive, memorable, & inspiring Reach the hearts & minds of the audience though well crafted story telling “The shortest distance between two people is a story.” Terence Gargiulo
  2. 2. Once Upon A Time……. Story telling has been around since the beginning of time It’s a natural communication method that we first experience as infants. Parents build their emotional bonds through story telling. Social & education systems embed moral & ethical messages through carefully crafted story telling & characters, e.g:Little Red Riding Hood, Don Quixote, Jane Eyre, Sherlock Holmes, Robin Hood, etc In the 21st Century of digital media dominance, individuals are switching to digital media to convey their stories, e.g; You Tube (the leading short-subject digital story teller)
  3. 3. Stories at Work, Stories that Work! Stories work for leaders as an effective communication & engagement technique for 3 key reasons: 1. Stories convey emotion effectively and emotion merged with a strong idea is persuasive. We remember what we feel, so our emotions inspire us to take action. 2. Stories are concrete & transport us to a place in time where we can see the events recalled in our mind’s eye. This makes stories powerful memory aids. 3. Stories represent a pull strategy, unlike the push strategy we use when we argue a point. Stories engage listeners, pulling them towards agreement & persuasion, rather than imposing opinion, ie; pushing them to resist
  4. 4. The Corporate Perspective Of Story Telling Stories are part & parcel of successful business cultures, e.g: 3M thrives on its reputation as an innovative company & the well known story of how Post It Notes came about, serves as an eternal eulogy Successful business leaders use storytelling as their hallmark, e.g; Warren Buffet Successful commentators engage with their audiences through their anecdotal stories

  10. 10. The Power of 3 Arrange the details in triplets. Our brains process information more efficiently in groups of 3.e.g.• Television: BBC, ITV, MBC, CNN• Business: CEO, CFO; MBO; GDP, GNP, WWW• Science: Liquid, Solid or Gas Animal Vegetable or Mineral• Government & Law: IRS, FBI, CID, Dial 999 or 911,
