Solutions in Plain Sight – When You’re Just Not Reaching People With Your Presentations and More… Tell Stories Instead
How often do you stand up to do a presentation on some aspect of your business, and part way through you have that sinking feeling, knowing that you’ve lost your audience? Perhaps they’re surreptitiously checking their smart phone under the table… or clearly disconnected, with their eyes glazed over. Even worse is when you send out an email or other communication and hear nothing back. Effective, compelling, and memorable communications start with storytelling, and this guest shows us how.
