Communications and Marketing
Do most Hollywood movies grab and hold your attention more than the typical meeting or PowerPoint presentation? If you answered yes, that’s because good movie makers understand storytelling. Research shows recall of facts within a story is 6 times higher than recall of facts communicated without a story. The same story elements that make movies engrossing can be effectively used in business to make complex ideas easy to understand and to get people to act on your message.
Learn how to properly integrate stories in your communications to increase your influence and transform your professional effectiveness. This session will reveal how to adapt basic elements of effective storytelling to business and give you techniques to understand your audience so you maximize the impact of your stories.
