Business Storytelling | Cynthia Hartwig

"In this presentation, you’ll see how stories can be used in all kinds of business settings to communicate and connect with employees, customers, colleagues, partners, suppliers, and the media.

 

You’ll learn the mechanics of telling a story with a beginning that hooks you, to a middle that builds tension, to a satisfying end.

 

You’ll learn how to weave rich information (even numbers) with personal insights and emotional power and then experience the thrill of having an audience remember what you’ve said. Many writing exercises are included to help you tap into the mind’s unique hard-wiring that can create a story out of almost any experience."

Not everybody can write a good story well.  What everybody does have, is a story to tell.  If you're writing skills aren't up to snuff, look for other ways to tell your story.  Or, as this article demonstrates, you don't have to tell your story alone. Consider collaborative storytelling.

"We’re all storytellers. Some of us are more intentional about the stories we tell, or more artful, but at the end of the day, we all tell stories through what we say and what we do. This is true not just for individuals but also for organizations. If everyone you hire is from one demographic… that’s part of your story. If you actively collaborate with partners, or prefer to work in isolation… again, that’s part of your story, as much as any social media promotion or the About page of your website."
