The Irresistible Power of Storytelling as a Strategic Business Tool

The Irresistible Power of Storytelling as a Strategic Business Tool | All about Visualization & Storytelling | Scoop.it

The irresistible power of classic storytelling.

It’s not often that you hear Budweiser and Shakespeare mentioned in the same breath. But according to new research from Johns Hopkins University, the Bard’s deft application of storytelling techniques featured prominently in the beer company’s Super Bowl commercial.

Emeric Nectoux's insight:

Regardless of the content of the ad, the structure of that content predicted its success. “People are attracted to stories,” Quesenberry tells me, “because we’re social creatures and we relate to other people.”

3 tips for companies to reduce carbon in their supply chains  [infographic] | All about Visualization & Storytelling | Scoop.it

Cutting carbon is not just about reducing emissions. The bulk of the problem lies along the supply chain, which should be meaningfully engaged.

The corporate sector is facing some stark and irrefutable truths regarding climate change.

First, at over 400 parts per million, atmospheric carbon is skyrocketing. If large companies are going to achieve their carbon reduction targets, it's imperative that they engage their supply base.

Visit the link for three top tips on how to kick-off doing so.

4 Speaking Tricks You've Got to Try

4 Speaking Tricks You've Got to Try | All about Visualization & Storytelling | Scoop.it
These tips will help you craft a presentation that you can deliver with confidence, no matter how great your fear of public speaking.

Via Jenny Ebermann
Emeric Nectoux's insight:

Always good to remember...


Here is one of the four:


Keep it Simple 

Every speech should be distilled to the simplest points so your audience will be able to retain the information. "When you see someone with 100 different bullet points on the slide," that's boring, says Holman. "Follow the rule of threes ... a simple grouping of things is much more powerful."

more...
John Michel's curator insight, February 5, 2014 5:20 PM

Cramming every bit of information into a speech should never be the objective. So besides going over the main points, be sure to repeat yourself, constantly.

Nelly Renard's curator insight, February 6, 2014 2:52 AM

KISS (Keep It Simple, Stupid) ! Si vous faites le compte des présentations auxquelles vous avez assisté, on est bien loin des 3 points par slide ...

Graeme Reid's curator insight, February 10, 2014 7:42 PM

Some good advice for making a presentation.  The best advice is keep it simple and remember that you are telling a story not downloading information.

A Beautiful Visual on The Importance of Games in Learning ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

A Beautiful Visual on The Importance of Games in Learning ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | All about Visualization & Storytelling | Scoop.it

by Med Kharbach


"Games are very important for learning and James Paul Gee has empirically proved this in his wonderful book " What Video Games Have to Teach Us about Learning and Literacy". Gee argues that games,particularly video games,  require the players to learn and think in ways at which they are not adept. He further states that games provide a life enhancing experience for learners and they also revolutionize the routinized ways of learning through fusing learning and play. You can learn more about Gee's book in this post I have published a few months ago.

"Regarding the importance of games and why they are good for learning, I am sharing with you the graphic below which visualizes some of the pluses of playing games for learners. Check it out and share with us what you think of it."
