Storytelling at Work:Internal Business Presentations – How to Make an Emotional Connection and Get Your Point Across
Internal presentations at work can make or break a career. They not only communicate your content, but they also highlight your leadership ability and future potential. The ability to present yourself with confidence, poise and professionalism is essential to your success. It helps you get the buy-in you need when you make proposals or go for that promotion.
The one thing that will slow you down, however, is to give a boring presentation that fails to make an emotional connection. The secret to making a real connection, while simultaneously delivering relevant content, is storytelling.
It is widely accepted that stories work on many levels. They make a point, teach a lesson or sell a product, service or idea. But the right story will also sell YOU. If you want to make a positive impression that will be remembered for weeks, months or maybe years to come, one well-chosen and crafted story will do the trick. If you want that new assignment or promotion, step-out, stand-out and tell a story. But not just any story – it has to be the right story, that makes the right point, for the right presentation.
In this 75-minute webinar workshop, you’ll learn how to find the right story using Doug’s Story Safari System. Then, you’ll learn how to craft the story using The Nine Steps of Story Structure. And finally, you’ll learn six essential presentation skills techniques that will allow you to present your story with confidence, clarity and focus. You’ll discover how to let your authentic self shine through, while also getting your point across.
Set yourself apart by learning how to apply Storytelling at Work in your Internal Business Presentations. You’ll receive an email with access link, password, and pdf handout.
