We’re continuing our series on storytelling with this on-air coaching call episode about what stories you should select to include in your signature talk, whether it’s a business presentation, a conference session, or, in this case, a keynote.

My guest is Marie Fiebach, who is a speaker and a regular contributor on her local TV station.

Marie is part of our Master Your Speaking online group coaching program and she’s been working on her keynote talk.

I invited her to come on the podcast to share with us how she selected the main story that was going to be the thread throughout her talk, as well as some of the other stories that she chose, including ones that showcase her credibility and her experience.

This is a fun episode! We cover a lot, from call backs that comedians like Whitney Cummings use, to adding props and funny memes, to incorporating music and songs in your talks.  

This episode is part of our Storytelling series, episodes 137-140.
