Overview:

When I started my career as a professional speaker and coach back in 2002 I was committed to figure out why some presenters were so influential when presenting their ideas while others weren't. There several factors that determines one's influence abilities, but there was strategy is common among all the master influencers. All great presenters are phenomenal storytellers! Whoever said "facts tell, stories sell" was right. All the leaders and influencers in history tapped into the power of storytelling when selling their point of view. Human beings are natural storytellers, however few professionals have consciously and precisely created a process to tells stories during their sales presentations, webinars, videos and meetings. Story$elling is the art and science of finding, structuring and incorporating stories into your sales, marketing and leadership process with purpose to influence your audience into action. Purposeful storytelling equals influence, period.
