The Story Finder: How to Create New Stories in Minutes!

"You are either remarkable or invisible."
- Seth Godin, author of the book Purple Cow

Most presentations are invisible, boring and forgettable. They lack original material. If it's not the PowerPoint Parade (one forgettable slide after another), it's the Data Dump (one mind-numbing statistic after another). The only statistic people care about during this type of presentation is when will it end!

In this session, you will:

  • Discover how to be remarkable with your own content
  • Hear and diagnose Ed's award-winning remarkable stories
  • Practice Ed's 4 Elements of Effective Story Telling
  • Create new material immediately, using a proven story creation framework
  • Always have new material no matter how often you present to the same
  • audience
  • Learn 15 different ways to creatively introduce your ideas
  • Build confidence
  • Have lots of fun in this interactive accelerated learning program

Presentation Outcomes:

  1. Create your own original stories and separate yourself from the crowd
  2. Break your presentation routine
  3. Connect immediately with any audience at anytime
  4. Re-examine, re-energize and strengthen your existing presentations
  5. Close more business
  6. Make your presentations remarkable and memorable
  7. Uncover humor
  8. Be the one that your prospects and clients look forward to seeing again and again!
