Stories That Stick is a business storytelling training workshop for organisations that want to enable their teams to better use personal narratives to and anecdotes to be remembered, sell ideas, build engagement and drive action.
No one likes to feel sold to, yet we’re all in the business of selling something: an idea, product, service or even ourselves. Modern executives and leaders need to begin connecting with their prospects, partners and teams at the workplace using the visceral, human appeal of stories; stories that help establish common ground, allay fears and inspire change.
The Stories That Stick workshop educates teams on how to harness the potential of effective storytelling techniques to influence, engage and inspire.
“Clearly points out the most effective way of telling stories. A paradigm shift from trying to SELL a product to getting customers to BUY a product and from compelling customers to say YES to making it impossible for them to say NO.”Peggy Pranata
