Storytelling Accelerates Your Message!

Presented by Marilyn Barefoot

The only thing that really matters when engaging with an audience is making them feel something! Storytelling at its core is how humans communicate. In business, telling a personal story to make a point, is the most compelling way to deliver your message. Messages delivered as stories can be up to 22 times more memorable than just facts. Emotion is truly the fast lane to the brain … particularly in a virtual world!

In this high energy, hands-on workshop, guests will learn and apply storytelling skills that will teach them:

  • How to engage and connect with the audience through well told stories.
  • The fine art and science of story structure.
  • When and how to use stories effectively.
