When I was in high school, I discovered Anita Roddick, the founder of The Body Shop. She was a natural storyteller who inspired millions of people through the stories behind her products. In one of her last interviews with Emma Thelwell, City correspondent of The Daily Telegraph, she said “One of the most intriguing things in management and in business is this role of storytelling – people need the anecdotes to do the work that they do. She told stories of values, success and failures and of course, people.
Stories are foundational to all relationships, but some of us struggle to tell stories that matter. We worry that we don’t even have stories, or that they don’t matter in business. You don’t have to be a natural-born storyteller, but this necessary skill, done in the right way, can unlock opportunities. As a storyteller for decades, I've helped leaders, experts, and visionaries tell their stories so they can communicate, influence and lead. At the end of this presentation your team will have storytelling tools that will make it easier for them to tell stories that matter.
