The best presentation on storytelling that I have attended in my career. - Healthcare CEO
The Story Theater Method is the science of the art of storytelling for business presentations. This method isn't fluff and theory. It's a step-by-step process that makes effective storytelling accessible to everyone. Most of Doug's clients complain that they are too data-driven in their presentations. They acknowledge the need to make an emotional connection and they struggle with how to tell a story and deliver data at the same time.

“We brought Doug Stevenson in to teach his Story Theater Method to both our senior trainers and our senior management here at Oracle University. He was a huge success. I've also hired him three more times to work with other groups. His workshop is both inspirational and very practical. I highly recommend him.” - Elizabeth Wiseman, VP, Oracle University

Some of the feedback I'm hearing from your storytelling workshop: ‘This was the best training I've ever had at USAA.’ ‘We need to get Doug's message out to more people at USAA.’ ‘Doug makes the material so compelling.’ I'll be in touch.” - Darrin Wylie, Director, Experience Architecture, USAA Insurance

For most employees, the only time they see senior-level executives is when they speak at large meetings. The speech the executive gives has the potential to inform, inspire and impress. Or, it can be a wasted opportunity, or worse — the speech can miss the mark and fall flat.
Let Doug help you deliver the speech that will be remembered for years to come!
