“If history were taught in the form of stories, it would never be forgotten.”
Those are the words of Rudyard Kipling. It’s a wonderful thought to keep in mind as the New Year begins. The best presentations have lots of stories. Not only are stories memorable. But they are entertaining and they drive home your messages in a way that connects with the listener.
In our workshops, we help you learn how to tell stories in a way that connects with your listeners and sells idea. We focus on two areas:
- How to organize a message that is simple and focused on listener needs. Speechworks teaches a simple formula for focusing on listener needs. We believe that if you have strong content, you will be more confident when you get up to speak.
- How to deliver the message in a style that connects with the listeners. We focus on eye contact and energy from your face, voice and body. Our coaches will give you private feedback on areas you can improve.
- How to answer questions in a way that inspires confidence. We teach you to embrace the Q&A portion of any presentation, prepare for the questions ahead of time, and when it comes to your answers, be brief.
Consider attending an upcoming workshop. We’ll help you learn how to use stories to make your ideas memorable.
