Master the Art of Storytelling
Whether it is the campfire or stage, the ability to connect a story to your message is critical for maximum impact. People connect to story, they remember story. Where a data point will get lost in the shuffle, a story will have staying power. Don’t believe me? How much of your time with your oldest friends is telling the same stories you have told one hundred times or more? There is an art and science to great storytelling, and you can learn this not-so-secret formula. With concentrated practice and study, you can master it and become a memorable storyteller!
