Data Storytelling: A Fab Technique For Presentations
Ivo Nový's curator insight, December 6, 2014 1:21 PM

Write down, in order, the 10 Most Important Things you want to tell your audience.

These 10 things become short headlines on each of your slides.

Keep it clear and concise. Like any other story it should have a beginning, middle, and an end.

When Is A Story Not A Story?

When Is A Story Not A Story? | AtDotCom Social media | Scoop.it

The presenter correctly indicated that stories can be used to hold interest that might otherwise drift. He supported this by outlining a structure:

Start with the point you want to make; Illustrate the point with a story; Provide an example or application that supports your point.

Ugh!! I can't stand this flow because it is simply a regurgitation of the old "Tell them what you are going to tell them; tell them; then tell you what you told them." I agree with the author of the article who says this is not storytelling. The author continues to say:

 

A side benefit, he contended, is that this structure can be quickly delivered.

 

It sounds logical, but it is not storytelling. Speeding through events with an eye on the clock cuts the heart out of emotional involvement, and effective storytelling ties directly into the emotions of the audience.

 

Now, this structure can certainly work when the second step is changed to “Illustrate the point with an anecdote.”

 

I love this article because it is a terrific discussion about the difference between an anecdote and a story -- and when/how to use each effectively. The author makes great points and I know you will get a lot from reading this post.

 

And if you want more examples of different narrative forms so you can be a smarter storyteller, then go download my free guide "Narrative Forms -- What the Heck is a Story Anyway? Why Can't I Just Use An Example?"
