How to use storytelling to persuade people to do what you want
Show Notes

Stories are 22 times more likely to be remembered than facts alone. 

Just that one thought alone should tell you how incredibly powerful storytelling is as a means of persuasion. Whether it's a company presentation, TED Talk, client pitch, or even a talk to a school assembly, there is nothing more effective than a great story to get people thinking or doing what you want.

In this episode you'll discover:

  • what a story actually is
  • why storytelling is so effective
  • how stories work on a neuropsychological level
  • the 5 part structure to tell great stories
