Recorded On: 06/26/2017
The only thing that matters most when pitching a new client, a new idea or a new initiative is capturing your audience’s attention…and hanging on to it! Many presentations are completely predictable, filled with recycled insights, integrated services and the usual buzz words. If you want to reach your audience, you must have something important to say that you are passionate about. Genuine passion will attract genuine attention…that will lead to action. Through this hands-on session Marilyn Barfoot will lead participants through nine steps to effective story structure and incredibly simple steps to selling your ideas. Most importantly learn to apply storytelling strategies that connect with your audience and build relationships.
