We’ve all heard to use stories in our presentations.
Stories make our content more interesting and memorable for the audience and can aid in learning.
What I’ve seen is that we’re good at providing a *summary* of the story.
But, what we’re not doing is *telling* a story.
What’s the difference?
5 key ingredients that will spice up your stories.
How do you go about telling a good story? Make it an I.D.E.A.L. story.
You know I love acronyms and alliterations, so I came up with the acronym I.D.E.A.L.
In this episode, we go through each letter – each ingredient – for a great story.
This episode is the first of our new series on Storytelling, episodes 137-140.
