HERBIE'S HINTS (named after my dad!)
I loved to hear my dad tell stories. Sometimes they were about his uncle’s dog Bella, his days at The Ohio State University, his service during WW2, working in a furniture store, using a mayor’s name to get through on a phone call . . . I liked his stories.
Yet I know that by current standards, Herbie’s stories would take too long and be too wordy for the attention span of today’s audience.
Please join me for a mini-zoom session on how to tell a story. Whatever your
profession, storytelling is a strong business skill:
1. Decisions are made on emotion and defended with logic
2. Numbers are rarely memorable
3. Stories engage your audience beyond facts
Storytelling connects the speaker, helps us make sense of the world, and communicates our values and beliefs. A good story speaks to us in ways that numbers, data, and presentation slides simply can't.
