Come on Down!  Making Your Audience Part of Your Presentation  

 Whether you are a keynoter of a workshop presenter, there are some fun techniques you can use to keep your audiences involved and excited.  We will look at key phrases that invite involvement…some unusual ways to use stories and “challenges”…and how to increase your ability to paint pictures with words.

The Art and Heart of Storytelling    

All businesses and people have a story but everyone naturally gravitates toward using logic and statistics because it seems more professional. No matter how compelling your facts are, if your audience isn’t invested in what you are saying, all that information is lost on them. In this stimulating and fun presentation, “The Art and Heart of Storytelling,” Mikki Williams, CSP, CPAE shows you how storytelling is your greatest vehicle for success in speaking.

Organizational culture is formed by stories - not just strategy and execution - as Peter Drucker emphasized in his famous quote, “Culture eats strategy for breakfast.” As speakers, we need to stop the data dump, known as just "content" and turn information into stories. Life and business happen in the narratives, and stories can go where data can’t. People act, buy and follow when you wrap your vision in a story that sparks the imagination and stirs the soul.
