HOW TO BECOME A
GREAT STORYTELLERGreg Thomas
http://www.rambli.com
Great
storytellers
are not born,
They are made
ENGAGE &
CAPTIVATE
These are strengths of a GREAT
Storyteller.
But how?Some use…
Passion for the topic
Humour
Intelligence
Facts and Knowledge
Honesty
And whatever other skills they have…
But they always…
Engage and
Captivate
BUT
today…The Art of Storytelling has been
replaced by the Art of the
Presentation where the
connection from a great story
has been replaced by a denizen
of slides that might resonate
with your audience…
And we yearn…For the presentations which have a great presenter because the stories
they tell motivate, engage and draw us into their worldview leaving with a
neverending desire to take action based on the information we’ve just
consumed.
Not buying
how
important
storytelling
is?
Check it out…Tell me you can’t recall any of these people’s stories that they have told over
the years.
Steve Jobs
“One More Thing…”
Martin Luther King
“I have a dream…”
Gord Downie
“I love my idea of this country.”
Perhaps not yours,
but they are
stories that
resonated with me.
Do they
But how
Do it?
They tell a storyOne that brings you into their world, keeps you engaged
all the while, you, are learning something incredible…
BUT HOW….
Start with a Message
What idea do I want to get across?
What emotions should this conjure in my
audience?
What should they do when I finish?
A story
without a
message…
… Is powerpoint.
Wha?
How?
Know your audienceWho are they?
What knowledge do they have on the subject?
Are they interested?
What do they want to learn?
Where do they come from?
Do they know you?
Why are they here?
What are they looking for?
What should they leave with?
Ask these and more…
Its not a race
1 23
CONTROL THE PACEThe best storytellers control the pace and flow of information to the audience.
They don’t put all their content on their first slide, they let it drip out, keeping
their audience awake, engaged, raptured for what is about to come next.
Control the pace
It takes patience and pauses in your delivery
to wait for the reaction from the crowd and
then decide which direction to go in.
Comedians do this with ease after every
joke, delivering the content (the joke),
waiting for the reaction, then delivering the
real joke.
Wait…
Wait…
GO!
connectThe best storytellers tell the
stories they are a part of, that
they lived through, that
shaped their own worldview.
When we are able to show
our own, personal connection
to the story, the audience
perks up to hear more…
How did they get past that
problem?
How did they overcome that
obstacle?
How did they get here?
COMMIT TO ACTAnyone can do a Call to Action, but leaving your
audience with the need to commit to taking action…
… that is a task worth undertaking.
No toolsPowerpoint, magic pointers, demos –
these are all aids to a presentation –
but not a story.
They can help you convey your
message to your audience, but…
Small things…
… if your story cannot exist without these tools,
then it’s not a story at all… it’s a PRESENTATION.
In Summary…
Anyone can become a great
Storyteller by holding focus around
4 key tenants…
The keys to great storytelling
Message
audience
pace
connection
Now go tell
your story

How to Be a Great StoryTeller

  • 1. HOW TO BECOME A GREAT STORYTELLERGreg Thomas http://www.rambli.com
  • 3. ENGAGE & CAPTIVATE These are strengths of a GREAT Storyteller.
  • 4. But how?Some use… Passion for the topic Humour Intelligence Facts and Knowledge Honesty And whatever other skills they have…
  • 6. BUT today…The Art of Storytelling has been replaced by the Art of the Presentation where the connection from a great story has been replaced by a denizen of slides that might resonate with your audience…
  • 7. And we yearn…For the presentations which have a great presenter because the stories they tell motivate, engage and draw us into their worldview leaving with a neverending desire to take action based on the information we’ve just consumed.
  • 9. Check it out…Tell me you can’t recall any of these people’s stories that they have told over the years. Steve Jobs “One More Thing…” Martin Luther King “I have a dream…” Gord Downie “I love my idea of this country.”
