Keynotes

Doug Stevenson is a keynote speaker and trainer in storytelling for business

The Power to Persuade – The Magic of Story

Everybody loves to listen to a great story. But why? Why are stories so magical? And how can you take advantage of the power of story to persuade, engage and drive change?

This keynote will lift your spirits with inspiring stories about Doug’s experiences: the perils of hitchhiking, acting in movies and TV, and learning a lesson in leadership from a dog named Jaya. Doug will then invite you backstage to show you how he creates his special blend of magic.

All of Doug’s keynotes are both inspiring and educational. It’s like watching a magician do a trick, and then having him teach you how he did it. It’s only magic if you don’t know the formula.

Are you ready to learn the secret formula? Come backstage and see what’s behind the curtain.

Leadership Development Training

“We brought Doug Stevenson in to teach his storytelling method to both our senior trainers and our senior management here at Oracle University. He was a huge success. Since that time, I’ve personally used what I learned from Doug and have found it to be practical, valuable and fun. I’ve also hired him two more times to work with other groups. His workshop is both inspirational and very practical, with easy-to-use tools and techniques. I’m constantly looking for opportunities to bring Doug back into Oracle and I highly recommend him. Doug Stevenson delivers!”

– Elizabeth Wiseman, VP, Oracle University
