Guest post: 5 Things (Almost) Everyone Gets Wrong About Storytelling | everyaction | Serious Play | Scoop.it

We can use stories and narrative structures as the basis for all communications, and get better results. By telling stories to our audience, we are showing them what they can be a part of; how they can get involved in the action. That is the power of storytelling – we show others how they can play a vital role in that story.

But these days stories are a dime a dozen. There are more organizations out there than ever before competing for attention. While stories can help your organization stand out from the crowd, not all stories are equal."

Esta aplicación nos permite añadir la locución a una presentación para convertirla en una experiencia comunicativa más completa y, en cierta medida, asimilable a la asistencia en directo a la presentación.

El proceso consiste en importar una presentación (ppt, pptx, odp o pdf) y una vez cargada empezar a correrla añadiendo la locución que le corresponde a cada diapositiva.
