What is storytelling and why is story telling important to business?
Humans love stories. And we love storytelling. Stories make the complex simple, the forgettable stuff memorable, the emotional even more emotional. And it’s what the entire professional speaking industry is built on. There is no more compelling skill to have than to be a good storyteller. It makes you persuasive, trustworthy, and sought-after. Humans have been storytelling since our own Dreamtime, for the last 60,000 years, stories have been told between people and passed down to the next generation, more enriched each time. Storytelling is effective communication. And every person and every business needs to keep improving the effectiveness of their communication, by continuing to improve their storytelling.
