In the last STC TC meeting on November 10th, we met Dodie Davis, a professional storyteller and guest speaker at special events and retreats.
Storytelling is powerful, Dodie said. The listener’s brain is hyper-active during storytelling and immediately creates associations via imagination, creating new thought patterns and an improved ability to memorize details. A never-ending bulleted PowerPoint presentations simply is no match for a good story.
Dodie suggests that storytelling can be easy. Capture your audience with the first sentence and strengthen your argument by presenting a smart conclusion. Tell the story in between and stay authentic.
Thank you, Dodie, for a wonderful time learning about storytelling when it counts.Dodie's blog: dodiedavis.me
