Day 2 @ 11:00

Facts tell, stories sell

Storytelling techniques have the power to breathe life into dull facts and figures and to change the way an audience feels about a topic. Positional power is on the decrease. Gone are the days of ‘command and control’, we now need to work on our personal power and win people’s hearts, as well as minds. Often, it’s our emotions that make us resistant to change. Stories hook us into the possibility of what could be, and once you have our hearts, our minds will follow. This presentation will help you develop your personal power. You’ll learn how stories can increase your credibility, likeability and help make your message memorable.
