"Instead of starting with theme, you can make your story more compelling by focusing on its three main actors: the villain, the victim, and the hero."

Bovee & Thill's Online Business Communication Magazines's insight:

 

"My team and I would work tirelessly to drive to the right answer to an organization’s problem. We’d craft an intricate presentation, perfecting it right up until minutes or hours before a client meeting, and then we’d triumphantly enter the room with a thick stack of hard copy PowerPoint slides, often still warm from the printer."
