How to leverage the Power of Story to Monetise Your Message

Stories can be powerful business tools, and successful leaders use them to engage their teams. Entrepreneurs use the art of storytelling to drive sales, and speakers use stories to transform.

With this in mind it stands to reason that if you want to create greater personal and business influence, you need to learn how to tell a good story.

Stories can change the way we think, feel and act. Stories can capture our imaginations, illustrate our ideas, arouse our passions, and inspire us in a way that cold, hard facts often can't. 

In Act 1 of this dynamic and interactive presentation, multi-award-winning Professional Theatre Director and the Speakers' Director, Simone de Haas, will share her top tips for crafting your most compelling business story and how to bring it to life using tried and tested theatre techniques.

In Act 2, the spotlight is on YOU. Simone will facilitate a number of ‘in the spotlight’ story coaching demonstrations with members of the audience. If you’d like to be ‘in the spotlight’ then please prepare a NEW story that you’d like to worth on.

In this session you will learn:

  • Identify the key stories every speaker needs to master.
  • Using the SPINE story structure model to make creating your business and personal stories a breeze
  • How to ‘take it off the page’ – utilising acting techniques to improve your story-telling
  • “In the Spotlight” story coaching demonstrations
