Increase Value and Harness The Power of Storytelling.

Does storytelling work for business?

In 2009, a journalist by the name of Rob Walker had the same question so he conducted a small study to find out.

First, he purchased two hundred thrift-store objects on eBay for a total cost of approximately $200.

Next, he asked a bunch of writers to come up with short stories about each of the objects.

Once the stories were in, Rob posted the objects for sale on eBay. However, instead of being accompanied by a factual description, the objects were now accompanied by a story.

So, what happened? How did the fictional stories about the objects affect the price of the objects?

The objects were purchased for $200, but they sold for an astounding sum of $8,000+.

In other words, storytelling increased the value of the items by 3900%. What would it be worth to you if storytelling increased the value of your offerings by even a fraction of that percentage?

This program will help teams deliver more powerful business presentations, communicate with clarity, and harness the power of storytelling.

In this program, leaders will discover:

  • How to harness the magic of storytelling 
  • The 5-step structure to quickly craft stories that sell
  • Storyboard techniques and how to structure a powerful presentation
  • How to communicate with greater clarity

The program can be customized for a wide range of audiences (leaders, marketers, salespeople, etc.), and can further be niched down into one of two separate tracks:

Track 1: The Science of Storytelling in which audiences discover how to create stories that sell. Audiences will walk away with a deeper understanding of why stories matter, how to use and craft sticky stories, and how to incorporate them at work.

Track 2: Powerful and Persuasive Presentations – for teams who want to dramatically uplevel their presentation skills. This program is best done as a workshop or masterclass (10 – 80 people). 

Please contact us to explore which of these two tracks is best for you.
